Looking forward to January

This week it snowed in Minnesota. I had a friend who had to move his that hadn't been running for the last month and he ended up having a big run around with the tow company in twenty below weather before they arrived.  
And then a pipe in the building burst and the apartment lobby flooded three inches, and the fire department came with wet vacs and pulled out all the carpet.  Huge tiles from the ceiling were removed. The elevators didn't work so some people had to walk (in some instances) ten floors to get home.

Fun fact about me: A neighbor in my building Nicknamed me "Fire" (not cuz my red hair) because I called the fire department years ago and two fire trucks showed up to investigate the gas smell in the building's kitchen.  A lot of people have this sign in their front year that says "We Watch, We call." I should have that plastered on my Forehead!

I also helped my son put together some figures from the Star Wars Lego set.

Loved this series on Netflix called "Home for Christmas". Its based in Norway. Tired of the constant comments on her relationship status, perpetually single Johanne starts a 24-day hunt for a boyfriend to bring home for Christmas
I just loved the snowy setting of Norway and the acting and dramatic bits were terrific.  It made me appreciate my little snowy oasis in Minnesota a lot more.

"Meet you in the Middle"  is a modern, heartfelt and hopeful romance that hilariously explores what happens when you fall in love with your political polar opposite. I thought it was cute but I do get it when people complain about the enemies to lovers trope and how it romantizes toxic relationships.



  1. Wow, sounds like a huge mess. That's a lot of stairs to have to climb.

    1. Oh yeah, and a friend of mine was carrying up his 12 pack of water while climbing ten fleets, wow!

  2. We had a big snowfall where I live too. It closed down the Interstate running through the area for nearly 24 hours and had people stranded out there overnight in below freezing temps. Scary stuff.

    Love the pics of your son. Such a cutie.

    1. Yes, I heard a huge snow fall also stranded people in the mountains of Pakistan.

  3. I don't know how you live in temperatures that are twenty below zero. I guess if I moved there I'd have to start by buying a coat!

    Your son is adorable.

    1. Yeah, I totally want to get out lol. Makes me cherish warmer climates for sure.

  4. Meet You in the Middle looks good. I kind of miss building lego now my kids are grown up, my sons loved the huge sets that took days. I don't miss standing on lego pieces though!

  5. Yes, and now a days that put tons of extra pieces in the Lego set in case you loose any. I actually saw the warehouse of the Lego factory and boy do they have an efficient system.

  6. Wow! That sounds like a crazy time with cold and then flooding in the lobby! That Lego looks really cool. I have a couple sets I need to work on. Meet You in the Middle is on my TBR. Home for Christmas sounds good. I need to check it out I think. Have a good week, and thanks for stopping by Lisa Loves Literature earlier!
