Birthday, weekend, and beyond….

Ok, so I haven’t posted since the 7th, but, I posted twice last week, and can still post twice this week, damnit.

Honestly, while I love Holidailies by the last few days I am tired of posting daily. Now, I will post twice a week or I am forbidding myself to buy anything new. That’s right, if I don’t post, I can’t shop. Ha. You should seem me and how much I will be willing to post to allow me to feed my shopping addiction.

Tony turned 36 on Monday. We spent the weekend in Martinsburg, West Virginia, eating good food, drinking good drinks (well, me, anyway) going to clubs and just having a fabulous time. The two of us being off entirely by ourselves is wonderful. No family, no work, no deadlines, just us.

It is hard to believe that Tony is 36 now. We have been together since he was 22 and I was 21. We never expected that life would lead us where it has, that we would be this old and childless but, unfortunately that is the way it worked out for us.

Yankee Candle sent me some fantastic coupons so I ordered several of their clearance candles and they came in today. All of the scents are fantastic and make me want to light everyone of them.

Right now I have a Sparkling Cinnamon one burning, in fact, I have actually been burning this one for quite some time. It is amazing how many hours these candles last. They claim up to 120 but, I know it has been more than that. I’d say I average burning it about 4 hours a day and it has been well over 30 days since I bought this one.

All of them I have bought I have liked, even the votive ones that I was unsure of. That really surprises me as most brands of candles I like only a few of their scents. Cucumber Melon for Spring, Cinnamon based for fall and winter, and in the Summer something light, depending on how I feel.

Well, it is time to make Tony’s lunch for tomorrow and write up a grocery list for tomorrow. Have a good day all.

As Holidailies closes for another year, I just want to say thank you to everyone who came from there to read any of MutteringFooldotCom this year. A even bigger thank you to all my long term readers who have been around for years, hell, I know some of you have been reading for the entire time I have been writing here.

I have a confession to make, a shameful one. I read, and liked, the Twilight series. Now, don’t run off, I just read them here recently after my niece, Kyrsie, went off about loving the movies. In thinking that it would be a wonderful thing for us to share so I bought the first book, got halfway through it, and went and bought the other three.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the writing really isn’t the best. It is supposed to be written on the level of a teenager but, honestly, I’d say you were writing down to them as most 10 year olds I know read at a higher level of difficulty.

Yet, still the story intrigued me enough to read all of them. I also have the first movie waiting here for me to watch. In fact, I thought about Twilight tonight solely because the show Launch My Line is stinking up the joint. I’m sad as Bravo went from having the best fashion reality show in Project Runway to this crap, and The Fashion Show. Ick.

I sure hope that Lifetime does/did a better job with the seventh season of Project Runway. They bombed on the sixth, regardless of whether it was due to worry over it never being shown due to lawsuits or what, it was horrible.

Having said all that, I think it is time to throw in the movie and watch that for awhile. Good night and thank you again, Holidailies readers and my long term ones.

Tattoos

Another cold night so I made a quick pot of soup for us. A fajita soup is what I call it as it has fajita flavors in it. Tony slurped it down so it must have been fairly good, there is enough left in the fridge for another dinner as well. I love leftovers so much.

***************************************************************************************

I’ve now been several months with no cellulitis issues so I’m thinking again of being tattooed. I haven’t been tattooed since last April and there are a few spots on that piece that need to be touched up. Right now it is my upper right arm covered in pop 60s hippy daisy flowers. Eventually my whole right arm will be covered with a stylized orange viney ribbon thing going around it.

I adore tattoos, in fact, most body modification is fascinating to me. That is my main focus of my nonfiction writing. I have made money writing about it, plus, I know terms that scare, and scar, the minds of many a man (subincision makes men cry.)

Honestly though tattoos have always fascinated me since I was a little bitty girl and all you saw was blue/black ink tattoos that had faded and looked like hell. I always knew I would be tattooed even when it was still seen as something only sailors or criminals had.


This is my latest tattoo, the day it was done, as you can see by the red in the yellow (yes, the red is blood) and how bumpy it all looks. Now, it looks much better but, have you ever tried to take a good picture of your own arm?

Ok, only answer that if you have t-rex arms like I do.

have a good one.
