I couldn’t find anyone that totally rocked my world, so today you all get to choose between two contenders:

Candidate number 1


Candidate number 2

So what do you think? Number 1? Number 2? Or pass?

Weekend Round

We had a great weekend. Everyone came over for Youngest birthday on Sunday. Turbo turned 11 months old yesterday, and he’s gone from beginning walker to an expert in a week. He was all over and having a great time. Of course it rained, and Wizard was out barbecuing tri tip and chicken in it, but he did a great job.

Today I’m going to try to go to the gym, I’d say there’s about a 50/50 chance I’ll actually go, especially if it’s raining :-) I’m definitely writing today!

So that was my weekend, how was yours?

Wednesday Worthy

It’s hump day! And here in California, we are getting served the Rainy Edition. Again :-)

But let’s move onto our candidate for today. And let me just say that I don’t care how hot he is, if he’s not bringing me decadent chocolate cake, I’m not interested. I’ve wanted good chocolate cake since last August and been doomed to repeated disappointment :-(  Umm…did I get off topic? Anyway…

…what do you think is he worthy?

Weekend Roundup

Friday we booked our Hawaii trip. I’m shocked we actually did it since we’re financially conservative–or as our kids would say–cheap. I’m not going to announce dates online, but we’re talking spring. Despite tight finances, we are both very excited. Well I was excited, until Wizard mentioned that I need to buy a new swimsuit. :-) And that explains my Monday morning diet plan (don’t worry, I’ll be hungry and over it by noon, or if I see chocolate, whichever comes first).

Saturday, I saved a new draft of my book, and am going back to change the order of things. Can anyone say frustrating???? I’ve known since the first of the year that I should do this, but I kept trying to work around it, and basically spun in circles. But hey, at least I’m back in the fight!

Sunday, Wizard went racing, and I went to hang out with my grandson, Turbo. That kid is walking better and better!

That was my weekend. How was yours?

It’s hump day and you know what to do!

This guy appears to be in a hurry (or he’s running from my book–because it’s a big scary monster that can’t be tamed–Grrr!!)

So what do you think, is he worthy?

Weekend Roundup

The weekend was ok. I spent time on words…I’m right back into my pattern of writing, deleting, cutting, pasting and generally driving myself crazy. No news there, LOL :-)  Saturday we had heavy rains and winds, and Wizard went racing with Middle Son to an indoor track. I was mildly concerned about him driving home because he has to travel four different freeways and I knew there’d be a fair amount of traffic. Turns out, I was concerned about the wrong family member.

They are fine, but CPA Boy, Special K and Baby Slayer were hit and spun out in heavy rain on the freeway Saturday evening, Again they are all okay, and watching out for any delayed problems like whiplash. Thankfully Baby Slayer was in his rear-facing car seat, and just a little scared. I saw him Sunday, and he was happy and playing as usual. Their car, however, is pretty banged up and will go into the dealer today for some bodywork. From what they’ve pieced together, a young man driving a brand new car spun out in the heavy rain, hit them and they did a 360 before both cars came to a stop. Thankfully no other cars hit them after that, although they did back up traffic until the police could get there to safely move the cars out the lanes of traffic. In that kind of rain, and at night, it could have been MUCH worse, so we’re all grateful.

And a little extra fun (NOT), I got an email threat to use my webcam to distribute porn of me if I don’t pay up in Bitcoin. Um…good luck with that. **Delete**  Garbage like this, and all the other craptastic scams run by trolls that need to be squeezed and popped like puss-filled boils, are why I need a glass of wine by the end of the day.

To end on a more cheerful note, here’s me and and Baby Slayer from yesterday. Baby Slayer has a super cool play space that he lurch-walks across, back and forth, like Maggie when she gets the crazy zoomies. It’s pretty funny since he hasn’t quite mastered walking, so he just pitches himself forward and toddle-runs. Somehow it usually works for him. Other times, he faceplants but gets right back up and does it again. In this photo, we’re playing with his dump truck.

That’s my weekend, how was yours?

Friday Five

TGIF! Let’s jump right into five random things about our week:

  1. I’m thinking about all of you in the Extreme Weather Zone. I hope everyone is okay!
  2. Here in So Cal, we have rain, rain and more rain. Maggie is NOT a fan. We’re under “at risk watch” for slides and debris flow, but we aren’t worried right now.
  3. I’m more than 250 pages into my book. I was shocked. It’s going to be an ugly draft when I’m hit The End (around 500 pages is my guess), but that’s what revisions are for.
  4. It’s February! I need to really hunker down and work. Plus start re-engaging on social media, but baby steps, right?
  5. It’s been a pretty quiet week. Oh I saw a friend for lunch on Wednesday and that was awesome! I also had a Caribbean salad I really enjoyed too. Lately, it seems like only about one-in-four restaurant meals are decent anymore.

I don’t have any big plans for the weekend, except working. Wizard will be watching the Superbowl, I’ll either be writing, playing with Maggie or reading. Unless I go see Baby Slayer, cause I can drive now!

Okay your turn to share your Friday Five. I hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay warm and safe!
