A Nice Cuddly Robe

The weather has turned chilly at night and this has me wanting a new bathrobe. I want something warm and cuddly and soft. I want to get some new slippers, too – I’m not worried about sexy slippers – I’, m going for comfort and warmth!

I don’t know about you, but my electric bill is killing me. I am going to HAVE to keep the thermostat down this year. Face it, I’m not even home during most of the day, so I’m heating an empty fucking house except for the 4 hours that I MIGHT be home cooking dinner and hanging out before bed.

I’m going to go shopping for a cuddly robe and new slippers this weekend, and try extra hard to keep the electric bill down this winter.

Feeling Crafty Today

The worst thing about winter for me is the shorter days and long, cold nights. It is dark when I wake up in the morning and it’s also dark when I leave work and drive home. If it is raining or snowing, the drive home takes 3-4 times as long and can be a gridlocked nightmare.

Tonight was like that – raining a cold rain that made the roads slick, so people who were going too fast for road conditions were spinning out and ending up in ditches. Thankfully, I know to slow down and, more importantly, watch out for the idiots and give them plenty of room to wreck their own cars and not take me with them.

I got home and made a bowl of beef stew and then surfed the cable channels – nothing good on. Surprise, surprise. So, instead of spending the evening sitting on the couch, I’ll be sitting at the kitchen table and working on some crafts. The first project I want to tackle is covering old cans with plastic lids and making them decorative. I’ll be wrapping the can with yard, spray painting the can lids to coordinate, and then gluing embellishments around both the can and lid with a glue gun.

After I decorate a few cans that will become gifts, then I will make a batch of craft dough and cut out some interesting shapes to get ready for Valentine’s Day. I have cookie cutters in a variety of heart shapes and sizes, and I will be baking the dough ornaments, then painting and embellishing them to give away as gifts next week.

What do you do on a cold, rainy winter night when there is nothing on TV?

Did You Survive Black Friday?

Yesterday was one of the craziest days of the whole year – Black Friday. Every woman who has bargains on her mind has been plotting and planning for the biggest shopping day of the year. People had big turkey dinners yesterday with family and a house full of people, then they got a couple of hours of sleep and then they hit the malls and department stores to do their Christmas shopping.Some of them left the house at 1:00 am to get in line at their favorite stores.

I am not that desperate for bargains, but I do like to shop and save money when I can. We decided to meet up at 7:00 am at the outlet mall and I was shocked at how full the parking lot was already. We had to park way out in the outskirts and walk forever to get into the mall at all. I didn’t really see that many bargains on the things that I was looking for, and by 10:00 I was ready to leave.

My friends were upset that I wanted to leave so early, and they wanted to stay. So I went to the food court and got a table in the corner were I wasn’t going to be jostled and bumped by dozens of people. I pulled out my Nook tablet and read an entire book while waiting for them to finish their shopping and meet up with me.

It turned out to be a good day. Not exactly what I had envisioned, but we all bought a few things and had fun being together. That’s the important thing anyway! And next year, if I do a Black Friday shopping party again, I’ll take my own car so I can leave when I’m ready to go.

Summers Gone – Kinda

So here we have September and we have Labor Day. This is supposed to mean the end of summer. You know, the nights get chilly, the mornings have dew and fog, the pools all close for the year. I hate the way school starts and within a couple of days the mornings get this odd chill in the air. Which especially sucks if you have to wait at the end of the road for a fucking school bus to come around. It’s so chilly that you need a jacket and your fingers and toes get cold anyway. And then when you get on the buy, your fucking nose starts running and you never have a tissue handy. Can we say flashback to the misery of childhood? LOL

So I will continue to milk as much summer as I can out of this year and I defy summer to be over. I intend to go the lake every weekend and keep working on my tan and I will go fishing as much as possible. I will wear shorts and flip flops until my toes turn numb from the cold and I am forced to wear socks. I do not want summer to end!

Swimsuit Shopping

If you are happy with your body, then shopping for a swimsuit can be fun. It is exciting to find new colors and patterns that make your body look hot.

But if you have been letting yourself go, if you have some love handles or a little belly pooch, then buying a swimsuit can be really hard on the ego. And really, I don’t see how the fat girls even do it. If I was fat, the last place I would want to be is the beach in a bathing suit making me look fat.

I’m going shopping for a new suit this weekend and I hope my baby sister can come with me. She is such a hottie and she has great taste. We always have a lot of fun when shopping at the mall together.
