Random Tuesday Thoughts - Food and Fires

If you're looking for a fun linkup check out Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.  Just post all your randomness for the week, and link up at her site.

Thought to ponder:

You know it's cold outside when.....
you go outside and it's cold!

my sisters, Sandy and Traci

My sisters actually don't live too far away from me so I get a chance to see them sometimes (although not real often....always excuses on both ends).  I got the pleasure of going out to eat with them the other day (along with my son, Logan) at a BBQ joint.  They woke me up out of a dead sleep to go and I had exactly ten minutes to get ready, but I made it.  #MessyHairDontCare

The food was phenomenal.  We sat there long enough that I think the waiter was wondering if we'd ever leave.  That's what happens when you get to gabbin' and laughin'.

Interesting fact about my sister, Traci: She got pregnant at the age of 15, got married, then had the baby.  Even with a teenage marriage and motherhood, she's still with her man.  Long marriages are a thing to be celebrated, even with those circumstances.

Got a picture of my cat taking a picture 


I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle at the theater last night with Logan.  I wasn't a super big fan of the first one, but this one had me crackin' up.  You should go, if just to see a blonde popular high school girl turned into a middle aged man played by Jack Black. 

As if I wasn't glutton for punishment enough on Christmas Eve, I went back to my sister's house last weekend for a game of Farkle.  I think I'm finally getting the hang of the game.  I played Left Center Right too and ended up losing my ass....and a lot of quarters.

When it's too cold to play outside, just hang up some tarps around your back porch and start a fire in the pit.  Never mind that your eyes are in tears from the smoke.  Just enjoy the company.  #CampKelley
How are you handling the winter weather?
Have you seen the new Jumanji movie yet?
What's your randomness for the week?

That's really cool your sis, Traci, is still married. Given the odds she totally busted 'em! I knew girls who found themselves in the same circumstances but I don't believe a single one is still married. We got married when I was 17, so I can sorta relate except I was not prego. Our first kiddo didn't arrive on the scene for 9-years. In the beginning, we didn't want children but we had a change of heart. I'm so glad that we did! I haven't been to a theatre in years. I wouldn't mind seeing Jumanji but I'll wait until it's available for streaming. I like Dwayne Johnson. He so likeable. I'm not handling winter too well. I stay indoors. That's about the extend of me handling it. lol This week is gonna be warmer and I'm very happy about that! Keep warm and happy random Tuesday!

So nice to hang out with family. I am overdue for a visit with my sister.

What a blessing to have time with your sisters! When i was little, i always wanted a sister, but all my mother gave me was two stinky brothers.

It's cold here in the swamps, too, so i am spending a lot of time with my heating pad. It's the only way to get through.

I love Traci's camping shirt.
I can't decide if we are going to see Jumanji or not. My whole family loves the first one, so we are wondering if the new one would be a let down. Robin Williams is awesome, but the Rock is pretty awesome, too...
Trader Jimmy has some fabulous long white whiskers going on there :)

That's great your sister is still married after all that time! I have a sister that's been with her husband, since she was 14 - not married that whole time.

Oh your cat is beautiful! I'm a sucker for long haired kitties.

My brother and sister in law started dating at 15, graduated, lived together for several years then got married. In October they celebrated 37 years of marriage. My sister lives 600 miles away so we don't get to see each other often but we talk and text all the time.
