I hope everyone has played nice. 

I went to walmarts for a bigger better fishing pole, then spent an hour or so floating around the pool...ahhhhh

and... *nods to fiesty* I had a ranch Panini for lunch..

This is going to be a very busy weekend here.  DH and I might just hide out in the house.

Now, it is almost nap time.

Pancakes should be light as a feather, not thick batches. And nommy with some jam or brown sugar. Not maple syrup or butter <_<

That's my Belgian mind speaking.

Where is there body shaming in the lyrics?

There's one line about telling skinny biotches but then the next line is, "No, I'm just playing, I know you think you're fat, but I'm here to tell ya every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top"  Which I guess could be a slam, but I actually see it more like, "We've all been told we're not perfect enough and have believed the hype and I'm telling you you're perfect."  The next

I guess the stick figure silicon barbie line just sets off my reaction. Although that may not be the way it was meant.

I do have to raise an eyebrow at people willing to implant jelly-filled things into themselves out of an attempt to become more attractive.  It's another one of those things where I say, "Women actually pay for this?" and think that it's hilarious.

I don't think it's something I would ever want to do, but I do think that like other body modifications that it should be personal choice and while you or I may think it's ridiculous, what we think doesn't really matter.

I wouldn't have surgery unless it was essential.

Some people think that self confidence is essential.   I suppose there are cases where that is true but I don't think vanity qualifies.

Yeah, I guess I see that as rejecting unrealistic body proportions.  It could be taken either way though.

Yesterday at the ladies luncheon, people seeing me for the first time called me tall and slender.  Totally made my day...  (if they only knew)  To be honest, most of them were about 20 years older and settled down into their senior years.

30 oldish woman crowded into this small restaurant, a special Panini menu... Dmn near everyone ate half the sammie and took home half... I inhaled mine and was looking for more....

*sighs*  Herb Foccacia with steak, cheese and onions....

Good one. I love JT. Never could get into the whole grits thing but maybe I'm just doing it wrong. 

Nope you're not doing it wrong. Grits are like eating wallpaper paste. ;)

Okay. Yeah, no.

You're doing it wrong.

Crook's Corner Shrimp and Grits (for dinner)

Cheddar Grits Casserole (for breakfast)

or

Maple Bacon Grits Puff (for breakfast)

 


I think grits are kinda like oatmeal.. sort of dull on their own, but throw in some friends then you have a party.

DD has a job at starbucks, but we give her a small allowance and pay her rent.


I don't think we had starbucks back then... that would have been so much nicer.  We didn't have a lot of stuff...

I like that javajig. Less going to the landfill. :)

First errand today is to get an alignment. Shop opens at 7 and I like being first. Later, chatpeeps.

I thought you meant going to the chiropractor..


As a matter of fact, I have discovered that it its totally ok to rinse off the little paper filter and use it again....

I would have gone with Sweet Baby James since I'll be driving a large portion of the turnpike from Stockbridge to Boston. It will not however be snow covered....

Good Morning.

Moving day :) Exciting! Hope that all goes smoothly.

UT started earlier this week. DD's bf just started his last semester.

Got my first I need more money of the semester text from DD at UT last night. At least DS is still new enough at it he called yesterday afternoon and sounded apologetic for needing more money for another textbook. :)

Looking back at college, I knew better than to ask my mother for money...The first thing I did was get a work study job in the cafeteria.  Sometimes it was a pain, but we had a lot of fun..  WE used to have a competition with the dish washing machine.

And... *happy dances*  I bought a javajig for my keurig coffee maker.. Even Dh likes the coffee so it is a win....

This will not replace the normal 12 cup pot in the morning, but it is good in a pinch.

 

A javajig?

It is a doo hickie that lets you use your own coffee in a Keurig.  Refillable and cheap, it uses a plastic thingie with paper filters..

Lovely... they are beautiful, yes. You were certainly overdue!

Adult fishing pole would be a good investment. Definitely on sale. And the right fishing mojo. Not sure if you casn find that on sale though.

There was a mojo cabinet around here somewhere!  *looks behind sofa*  Found it..

but don't tell.

I didn't expect anyone so early!  :)  If you go to a diner around here for breakfast they may give you grits or home fries.  Sometimes it is delish, sometimes kinda blah..

Yay for Friday...

We did not catch any fish yesterday.. Naturally I blame the equipment, so today I am going to buy an actual grownup fishing pole.  My hope is that there will be some kind of Labor Day Weekend sale going on.

 

THE BIG NEWS IS (wait for it)  I SAW A SHOOTING STAR!!!  Not part of any old meteor shower, a lonely shooting star, which makes it magic... The last time this happened I made a wish(20 years ago??), which came true.  

*pins shooting star up in the lounge for everyone to admire*

You can look, but don't forget I already did the wish so the magic is mine...

I'm pouting!  *pout pout* 

Thinking about fishing again tonight.  Our neighbor's grandson is visiting and he said he would like to try it.

Do it.

Got two pole ready.. Not really strong enough for large bass but we will try anyway.

Maybe our neighbors will have a camera..

THe realtor called finally.  Our buyers backed out, case of cold feet.  They were looking for a retirement home in three years and decided that they did not want to carry the additional costs until then.  THe price negotiations were all BS.  She was just as surprised and disappointed as we were.  She had the contract all written.

 

Back to square one...

 

On a happy note we did all the paperwork for the new car, and I am going out to lunch with the ladies.

*sighs* life goes on.

Morning all,

Dh and I are off to the car dealer.  We are trading in the Maxima for another Rogue.  We decided to do this while we were out window shopping yesterday.

No official call from the realtor as yet...

 

Be good peeps, be safe.

'later.

The funniest thing is I was using a plastic worm.. bubble gum pink... honest...and DH's grandkids fishing pole, which dmn near snapped.  Now I know why people come here from outside the neighborhood to fish..
