random - whatsandrathinks

I guess there really is activity in my brain. Although ‘real’ writing eludes me still…

Dum-Dums has a special limited-edition flavor for fall. It’s apple cider and it’s amazing. Yes, I eat lollipops. Occasionally.

It’s fall (depressing) and temps have already been as low as 30°F. I try to hold out as long as possible before turning up the heat, but we had to do it. As such, I have determined that I need a humidifier for my bedroom. I do see the irony… I, hater of humid weather, am looking to add humidity to my home. It’s fucked up. But I need to. And I truly hate shopping for things like this because I have no idea how to choose. I’ve read so damn many Amazon reviews that I’m even more confused now than when I started. I don’t suppose anyone has a recommendation? Needless to say, I don’t want to spend a lot. But I don’t want to buy a piece of junk either.

My husband can see a small local airport out his office window. Today he saw a plane with the Wahlburgers restaurant logo on it. He and his coworkers looked up the ID number thingy from the plane (which ended with the letters MW) and found out that it’s Mark Wahlberg’s plane. [Below: Not the actual picture my husband took. He was farther away… but same plane.]

Today, I’m actually having a good back pain day. I’m not naïve enough to think this is a permanent change. It’s probably only because I didn’t do much today… didn’t even cook dinner. Yeah, I was pretty lazy today.

The more coffee I drink, the better I feel. Do I have a problem?

Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you jealous of me for my coffee guy.

Here… how’s this picture?

Or maybe this one…

coffee - sleep when dead.

Okay, that’s enough of that. Moving on…

I love granola. I love it so much. I wonder if making my own would go well. I’ve never tried…

The Pinterest website is down. Thank god the app is working. I have to find a homemade granola recipe.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Weather sucks here too. I used to use a humidifier too but stopped because I got lazy with cleaning it. I could be wrong but someone told me that a simple bowl of water can add humidity to a room but i never tried it. Hopefully your back is going in the right direction!

  2. A simple mist sprayer is quite good. The type you would use to spray house plants. Just a couple of sprays 2 or 3 times a day. Worth a try, and a lot cheaper that a humidifier.

    I’m the same- I need the humidifier going when the heat kicks on. Getting ready for the Nor Easter?

    • It got so dry so quickly once we started using the heat. It seems worse than last year. But my memory sucks so maybe it’s not different at all.

      I had to go out this morning, but it wasn’t that bad. Windy and raining… but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I’m just glad it wasn’t a snow event…


  4. Having your own plane would be pretty sweet. Glad your back is better. 😊😊

    H and I were talking about what we’d buy if we won the Mega Millions and a plane would definitely be on the list. Then we could just travel without dealing with the crappy airport routine. I don’t use a humidifier because it seems like it grows mildew overnight! Yuck! So I spray my plants with a mister and I use a wooden clothes drying rack for my delicates to air dry.

    • That is my main complaint about humidifiers. I feel like they are dirty and gross almost immediately. But I definitely need to get more moisture in the air. Thanks for the ideas! I do dry some clothing on a rack in my room.

      I’m not a huge fan of flying but having my own jet would sure make it better…

  6. Absolutely love your “about what Sandra thinks”! It was just so original and funny, with that glimpse into you as a person, something most people (read: me) can’t convey in just a few lines. Looking forward to reading more from you! ❤

    It’s gloomy and cold here. Ken wanted to work on the new porch he’s building for us, but it’s rainy–not a great day for roofing. Enjoy your coffee and humidity!

    Oh my gosh, I need to get me some apple cider dum dums asap! Yum! That’s so cool that your husband saw Mark Wahlberg’s plane land & I’m the same way with coffee– the more I drink, the better I feel!

    Hope your homemade granola turned out well! 😄
