The Secret Life of Blogger's Blog Party: The Wanderer Visits MD with Poetry, Music and Celebration (5/24-5/30)

Saturday, May 24

I finished the Faygo I bought. Redpop was eh, I'm usually not a fan of strawberry juice.

I made banana apple bread. It was so good!

I am happy from the wonderful dream I had about Monoxide!

I walked into Monoxide's house because my retainer fell out and I was getting tired from walking around Roseville. Even though I had a feeling that the act of going into his house in the middle of the day (it had to be, I was the only one on the street and there were no cars... it was just me looking at Monoxide's ranch house) was wrong, but I entered through the white door and into the kitchen. It was my first time in Monoxide’s house, but I instinctively knew where everything was. In the kitchen, I wash my hands and start playing with my retainer; the one I had cemented in my mouth since having my braces removed at age 13. 

“Hi, Jessica,” I heard a familiar voice from behind me. I turned around and saw Monoxide standing there. I thought he would chase me out of his house, but instead he hugged me. He said, "Welcome! Welcome to your new home in Roseville. You'll love it here and I enjoyed reading all about you. I loved your letter. I also did a background check on you. You seem like a nice girl." We talked and then he gives me a little kiss. Monoxide invites me to an interview he's doing with Jamie and I get to meet everyone. He appoints me as PR person of the band and I am his girl now. :) They feed me well... then I wake up.

Before mom, dad and I went to North East, Maryland, we stopped off at Aunt Peg's to get flowers. I saw Felix and had to get a selfie with him!

It was a nice trip to North East, Maryland and to Chris's Crab Shack. :)

Happy Memorial Day!

This candy was interesting. It was in the UK section of Wegmans. I thought it was cool with the Arabic.

Sadly, I couldn't eat it since it was caramel. :(

Pop-pop's grave. He served in the Air Force and the Boy Scouts commemorated him with the rest of the veterans today.

My cousin, Josh, playing taps.

End of the ceremony. It was nice.

We enjoyed the crabs.

I love this show! Sarah & Duck.

Wednesday, May 28

Yeah, it rained hard today. Here's the creek down the street.

Sangria with peaches.

Sangria and cheese cake.

Mimi isn't feeling too well today.

Thursday, May 29

Mimi still isn't feeling well today. I think it's the weather and time of season: she has allergies.

This was my lunch after I sent in some resumes. Didn't eat the whole thing because the cheese wasn't melted and I put too much in… can't do a lot of cheese.

After sending three more resumes, I was exhausted and needed a pick me up.

Yeah, I wanted to join Mimi for a nap… but I don't nap unless I'm sick (if I nap during the day, I won't sleep at night)

Here is Mimi watching TV.

#tbt Me and Woo two weeks shy of my 12th birthday in June 2001.

I made iced cappuccino today at work.

I used up all the ice cubes and filled them.

In Memory of Dr. Maya Angelou
People will never forget, she said,
How your actions made them feel;
she sat alone with reflection in head.
People will never forget, she said,
The words used that made them bled,
The words of lessons for kids congealed.
People will never forget, she said,
How her actions made people feel!

Fluffy Friday:

@catsby_the_bookshop_cat. I'm not sure how I found Catsby, but he's a 10 year old rescue that lives in Davie, FL and guards the Second Edition Bookshop. I love seeing his pictures daily and they always make me laugh and smile.

@troopsthephatone. I love watching his adventures and his new interns (he's pictured with the one) and their antics always put a smile on my face.

@bunny_and_rats. I love River (pictured), the hairless rat. I also love the other mice that are featured and the new bunny.

I love Wings of Wonder and I can't wait to move to Michigan to finally see the sanctuary. Please check out their cause: Wings of Wonder.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Oh, for Flashback Friday, let's take it back to when the Blog Party started almost one year ago by the wonderful Stephanie Ann. Milwaukee Brewers vs. Philadelphia Phillies (The Secret Life of Blogger's Party#1). Also please check out a blurb of a Michigan piece: My First Time in Detroit. Have a wonderful weekend!
