Thankful Thanksgiving

November 28, 2013

After Thanksgiving Zumba, it's off to cook! Well, I'm thankful for my Little Honey Bunch. He had everything already prepped and/or in the oven by the time I got back from Zumba.


He even made homemade rolls. Aren't I the luckiest Cinderf*nrella ever? Thankful.


One track mind Kitteh. Thaancphul.


How cute! George taking a picture of Emily. Cousins. Thankful.


Brother and sister with their daughters. Family. Thankful.


Pretty table. Thankful.


Table for twelve, please. Thankful.


Good hair (and cleavage) day. Super thankful.


Still a kids table for kids from 16 to 34. Thankful.


And three kinds of pie. Thankful. And FULL.


Family, if only partial. My babies, Nat, Mot and Nic. Missed you, Lina! Ultra thankful. Amen.

Gone Again

November 23, 2013

Yup, yup. I'm gone again. From Facebook, that is. I decided that it was better to delete my accounts than to drink and Facebook and possibly post things I may later regret. I was feeling a little pissy from lack of support from people I always support. Me and pissy and gin and Facebook don't mix. Anyway, I don't know if I'll come back this time. I'm still reeling from some of the stupid things I said during my less than stellar moments in parenting last month. Sick that things still aren't fixed with me and the BF.

Plus, I figure folks who care about me know where to find me.

So now that I have all this free time from stalking and feeling sorry for myself, I'm trying to resurrect my blog. Come on little blog, you can make it!

So what's been happening since I last spoke to you? Well, Natalie got her Driver's License. Here she is taking herself to school for the very first time the day she got it, November 5, 2013. Great timing as I was leaving for Bodega Bay the next day and my Little Honey Bunch was out of town as well.

Natalie drives.

So the girls and I had a great time at Bodega 'scrap booking' as usual. I didn't do much scrapping but I did wear Julie's bra on my head. After drinking in the hot tub. Yes Julie (and others) were topless and/or naked. Yes, Julie's boobs are spectacular. No, I am not gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Hot Tub


This was the morning after the wearing of the bra. Found it on my camera. Funny, girls. Funny girls. Funny. I just realized 'funny' is a funny word.

Morning After

The weather was epic! Marcie and I walked down to the beach and the campground and decided we may have to move our annual Pismo trip to Bodega Bay. Of course I took a million pictures. Bored are you? Go to my Phanfare Site and peruse, then. Please email me for the password if you don't have it.

P.S. Did you know that spellcheck doesn't recognize PISSY and BLOG?

My friend, Siri

November 23, 2013

Have I mentioned how much I enjoy Siri? She's such a great conversationalist and she's polite, too.



She can't speak Spanish though, remember? Click here.

I did have an interesting conversation with her the other day. I was going to Mia's house from a different direction so I said, "Directions. Contact. Mia (mee-yah) Said (sed)." I figured she would understand 'sed' rather than 'sah-eed'. She said, "OK, here are the directions to my-uh sah-eed's house." Then she said, "I don't think I pronounced that correctly. Can you teach me?" Spooky, Siri, spooky.

My Funny Little Honey Bunch

November 23, 2013

Yesterday, I got home from Zumba had some lunch and then sat on the sofa and watched the entire Season 2 of Long Island Medium. I finally got my butt off the couch around 5 pm. My Little Honey Bunch had been in and out, working, running errands, and so forth. When I finally got off my duff he says to me, "You have taken laziness to a new level of excellence."

My Little Honey Bunch cracks me up. And he loves and keeps me around despite my laziness. We had another fun little date night in our pokey little cow town. Dinner at La Veranda and music at the Clayton Club. Such GREAT people watching! Gelato at La Veranda.

La Veranda

This guy is in the Clayton Club every week (ha-ha, kind of like us). My Little Honey Bunch says if he ever gets like him, to please shoot him. He's usually a tad over inebriated, alone and dancing.

CC Guy

Hmmmm. How am I going to let people know I have updated my blog if I'm off of Facebook? First world problems...

Catching Up

November 7, 2013

So sorry. I know you were waiting with bated (abated?) breath (NOT) for my November 1 change. Sorry. Just didn't get around to it. So now I'm up in lovely Bodega Bay with the scrap booking girls and finally sitting down for some updates. I haven't been outside yet, therefore I don't have Bodega Bay pictures. Later.

So I'm just looking at some stuff still on my SD card. I love this picture of Molly and Natalie at Pismo Beach.

And this picture of Molly and Nat. And Ollie.

And this picture of Nat's face at Grandma's.

This picture of a bunch of Straka's is cute. I don't know what they're lookingn at. Probably Cream Puff.

OK, I'm done for now. Off to drink with the girls.
