Deal......or no Deal?

 Wonder what deal or no deal means?  It's me.....I can deal on some days and then find it hard to deal on other days.  Oh, just like you?  Good, I hate doing things alone.
It's been a stressful few weeks and I'm pulling myself up by the bootstraps or flip flop straps as the case may be.

I'm late, but I'm joining in on Friday Fragments where we empty all the small things that are floating around in our brains.
Thanks to Mrs. 4444 for sponsoring.



AND Christmas is coming.....I love Christmas but not the gift buying part so 
after reading a post over at my friend Debi's blog, I rushed over to look at her daughter's etsy site.

I purchased some lovely Christmas gifts from Jackie at Saltboxhousesigns.  If you haven't visited I highly recommend going over and browsing for your Christmas gift list!  I can't wait to show you pictures but alas will have to wait until Christmas.  I have already received the gifts and they are top quality and so perfect for what I wanted.

Although the Superhero does not read my blog, he hears me talking about it on a somewhat regular basis on the rare occasion.
 And lately I may or may not have been in a good mood.  I apologize Superhero even though you'll never know because you don't read my blog.
So........this morning when I mentioned that the bar was messy, he jumped up and said ....... who can fix that?????  SUPERHERO! While I was laughing hysterically, he cleaned all the clutter from the bar and wiped it down sparkling clean!  The Superhero did two things for me.....he cleaned the bar and made me laugh.  Of course, he did make the snide little remark that most of the stuff on the bar belonged to me!  

But no matter....

Have you heard of the country Facility?  Yes, it has to be real because I talked to a woman from that country on the phone last night while trying to register something I had purchased. We spent a wonderful 45 minutes together with me mostly saying "huh"  or "could you repeat that again, I don't seem to be able to understand you"......At the end of the conversation, I asked where she was located.....you know as in country?.......and she answered "Oh, I'm in Facility".....sigh.  The worst part of that conversation was that awful moment when I realized the reason other than language that we couldn't understand each other was that I had ordered the wrong thing and no matter who I had been talking to or from what planet it wouldn't have worked.......  SIGH......

The next day I chatted online with her brother Zen.....I kid you not, although he did say he was in the Philippines!

Last night we ate at a local restaurant and this was our view.




There was live music and he sang my kind of songs which was really nice.

Lastly, I must post this now because if not I could miss my window of opportunity.  I just discovered this is National Pet Peeve week.  
My personal Pet Peeve is honking horns!  I just absolutely cannot honk my horn and I hate to hear others honking.  We spent one day in D.C. 20 years ago and there were so many things to love about the city, but my goodness no one can drive without honking their horns.  I wanted to get out and ask if anybody really thinks gridlocked traffic will move if you honk your horn enough!

*****
That's it for me......
Hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend.

Oh my, I want to eat at that restaurant with the gorgeous view of the water! ;-)

Nonnie said...

I have missed you, my friend. You are so funny and I'm with you on the gifts and honking horns. Irritating. Your Superhero did good.
Gorgeous view.

What a lovely restaurant view. Sadly I've been missing the beautiful sunsets lately. I need to set my alarm or something...
I will be spending next week in Florida, hopefully I'm paying attention:)
Did you know that horn honking is a form of aggression. It is one of the top triggers for road rage incidents.
I'm a bit late too. Have a blessed Sunday.

Ok I now have a new site to visit which I will do, next have to say I have never understood why people feel the need to blow their car horn while stuck in a traffic jam, it doesn't change anything.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Her signs are really cute, thanks for the link. Your Superhero is so awesome!!! Lovely view with dinner.
Yes a city with honking horns can be very annoying. Have a great week ahead filled with happiness and no stress at all..............

Needled Mom said...

Yes, I have talked to many people from Facility!! It mostly involves computer issues which is a double whammie!

The view for dinner looks awesome. I may have stayed all night just to watch it.

I need to check out your links so I'll sign off now.

Tony reads my blog every day... and this morning he claims I have abandoned it. He said I'm a disgrace for making y'all wait so long for an update on our incredibly exciting lives and (even more important)unbelievably awesome husband.

*sigh*

There are rare moments when I wish he didn't read. :)

Cathy said...

Great! As usual, my sister, the blogger😍

debi said...

So happy you are happy with the product you ordered from Saltbox! We were just talking about your order yesterday...she said she really hoped you were happy with them :-)
Would love to hook up when your in San Diego!!
Have a good week, hope Momma is doing well.

Hugs!

Rebecca Jo said...

Ahhh - what a good Superhero :)

Diane said...

Glad to see you back my friend, I had wonder where you might be at. So it's National Pet Peeve week...love it, however I might be here all day if I start listing mine, but I would have to agree about the honking, I don't use mine at all.

Dee said...

Dear Nancy, I'm not sure what my pet peeve is. I do get annoyed though when someone is in the check-out line and they're talking on a cell phone and not paying attention to paying the bill or moving on through the line. Maybe that is a pet peeve!

Your life's been busy. Winter's coming though and always I find that life slows--except for the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas when I seem to totally forget to live in the present. In my mind, I'm always planning. Planning. Planning throughout that four-week period. Peace.

I clicked over to the etsy shop and I love it. Great stuff. I wish I had a superhero over here.

Mrs4444 said...

I've purchased a few Christmas gifts already,too, and I've made a few, too. Lots more to do, though...

Superhero--I love that he called himself that and that he made you laugh. To me, being funny is an incredibly-important trait in a man :)

Gorgeous views! I guess I'll have to live vicariously through you for the next several months. Thanks :)

Have a great weekend!

So you're not a "horny" type of girl?! LOL (I raised two sons in the mix of children and some of their humor has stayed with me. Sorry!)
