Strawberry Tarts and A Teapot

Another gauntlet was thrown after reading my Challenge to Challenge was issued. This one came from the very lovely and sweet, Loly Hallison. She had no way of knowing that these two items actually do belong together in a personal memory of my mom. One that I will never forget and it will always bring a smile to my face. It happened years ago, when I was still in my 20s.

My mother and I would meet up about once a month. We’d spend the day together, usually we’d shop until we dropped. This one morning I’d picked her up and we grabbed these amazing little strawberry tarts at a local bakery. I wonder if that place is still open. I’ll have to Google that later. Anyway, we’re sitting in the mall parking lot,  eating our strawberry tarts, and talking. Our conversation turns to death, as it so often does with me, and my mother began telling me that she wanted to be cremated and her ashes sealed in a tea pot. I agreed to her request under one condition and it was that condition that had us looking like two crazy, drugged up teenagers.
Do not come back and haunt me by singing, “I’m a little teapot short and stout….”

Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Menus & Electric Heaters

This place didn’t have an extensive menu, but what they did have was simply delicious. It was a food truck permanently parked on a small peninsula off the coast of Achill Island What she loved the most was that they has hooked up small electric heaters between all the tables so even on a cool day like today, you could eat outdoor and be comfortable. She was especially grateful for this today as she planned to meet her dear friend, Grace, for lunch. It had been far too long since they had sat down and dished.

Rabbits and a Paper Fan

Another challenge was presented after my post: Challenge to Challenge. This one came from my adorable elven friend, Luca. I wonder what she was looking at to make her think of those two things. I should have asked her to clarify which kinds of rabbits, because she and I are like a couple of 12yr girls when we get together. We’ll giggle and make everything dirty. So, I can easily imagine this being about the sex toy kinda rabbits. However, since she didn’t clarify and the first thing that popped in my head was little white rabbits…that’s the direction I’m going.
I thought a bit about white rabbits and paper fans. I wondered why I automatically think of white rabbits and whether or not that makes me a racist in the bunny world. As for the paper fans, I thought of the type I use to make with accordion style folded paper when I was little girl sitting in a church that was so old, it didn’t have central air and the stained glass windows didn’t open. (Yes, I grew up going to church.) This led me on a rather long trail of thought regarding things I used to believe in, like Santa. I remember being about 4yrs old, living in Germany. I had this huge plate glass window in my bedroom and what I’m sure now was a falling star, I just knew I saw Santa flying across the sky.
It’s almost as if Luca knows me and how my mind works…jumping from one thought to another as memories unfold. It’s funny, the older I get the more often this happens. It makes me grateful to have some pretty cool memories to rely on.

Is that Santa
Do I see Santa?

Everybody else did

“Yeah, we used to talk like best friends
I remember that I guess I don’t know what happened to us
Now you got me questionin’ what trust is
You told me you would be there for me
Yeah, but you ain’t really mean it did ya
Now you wanna jump ship
Leave me here alone
Well, I’m used to it
Everybody else did”

My Sabrina

For those of you that know the song, I hope you heard “My Sabrina” to the tune of “My Sharona” cuz that’s totally how I heard it in my head as I wrote it. *giggles* Once again, this post will only mean something to those that have at least heard of the Netflix show, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Essentially, its a modern, more graphic, more dramatic version of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Or is it? What I found out is that what most of think is the original Sabrina from television is NOT the original at all. In fact, the original Sabrina stems from an Archie comic book released in October 1962. This eventually led to her having her own comic series, Sabrina the Teenage Witch. And THAT was the inspiration for the first television show that was on ABC & WB. However, as Archie and the gang were brought forward through the comic book series, so was Sabrina. As the stories took a turn and started being published under Archie Horror (another branch of the brand, I guess)…the comics went darker and were called The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. These newer, darker stories were the inspiration for Netflix’s new show. It makes perfect sense if you know about Riverdale which is about Archie and the gang already.
All of this brings us to the here and now. I was just making fun of the fact that our newest Sabrina looks exactly as she did on Mad Men. When I found the makings of this entire outfit at the latest round of FaMESHed. So, I present to you Sabrina the full grown witch that is still wearing that short hair and headband, but shorter skirts and bigger tits. You’re welcome. *giggles*

Moments

“I, I’m not the prettiest you’ve ever seen
But I have my moments, I have my moments
Not the flawless one, I’ve never been
But I have my moments, I have my moments
I can get a little drunk, I get into all the drugs
But on good days I am charming as fuck”
~ Tove Lo –  Moments

That really sums me up pretty damn well. Or it used to. I don’t drink or drug too often anymore. I think at some point, I just realized that I kinda like being sober and in control. Drugs and alcohol can numb the pain for a bit, but the best way not to feel is to just go to sleep. Everything will still be there in the morning.

Trust Issues

“I’m just letting you know I’m emotionally unavailable
I’d love to reciprocate your love but I’m incapable
I know that you don’t get it, but I’m just so unstable
And all I could think about is how you’d be unfaithful
You think that I am crazy
But that, that does not phase me
And no, you cannot change me
Just know you cannot save me”
~ Olivia O’Brien – Trust Issues

I really want to elaborate on how deeply the quoted lyrics above hit home. There has only been ONE man in my entire life that has not betrayed me and that was my maternal Grandfather. I honestly do not believe he ever would have either. Granted, I was only 7yrs old the last time I saw him before he died, but the way my mother talks about him…well, I have to believe he never would have betrayed me. He was amazing the had the bluest eyes I have ever seen. Every other man in my life has hurt me by making me feel less than worthy. Every man I’ve dated has cheated either with me or on me. Yes, I said with me. You see, I learned my lesson about the betrayal early on. So, in my early 20s, I wouldn’t date a man that didn’t have a woman at home. Why? Because at that time, I would have rather been the woman he cheats with than the woman he cheats on. I was treated exceptionally well by those men and had no restrictions. They couldn’t very well insist on monogamy from me when they were going home to fuck someone else, now could they?
I’m not saying there aren’t some good, honest men out there. All I can say is that they’ve not been men I dealt with for very long. Perhaps its the type of men I’m attracted to. I can accept that. Regardless of why, it comes down to this one thing. I am incapable of trusting a man romantically. I tried to last year, but like all the rest….that led to betrayal and the shattered remains of a heart that wasn’t even healed from the last betrayal. The promises people make when they think they’re in love….hmmmm, I don’t know, I suppose the old addage, “Promises were made to be broken,” has proven to be true….at least in my life. So, trust issues? Nah, more like a full blown subscription to NTA….never trust anyone.

Bloggies!

So, this is just super exciting news that I’m dying to share. I really try not to boast or brag ever, because I just think its tacky. However, I just won an award for Best Narrative Blogger by BVN!! This was such a huge deal to me, especially considering who the runners up were. I mean, Strawberry Singh and Skippy Beresford? Seriously? I don’t know how I won over either of them, because they are two of the most talented photographers and bloggers I’ve ever seen. All I can say is that I have some seriously good friends and readers. Upon receiving my award, I knew that I owe it to my readers to be better than song lyrics and quick quotes. So, I’m going to do my absolute best to actually write more. I’m not saying I won’t still use song lyrics here and there, but I’m going to try not to rely so heavily on them going forward. You are the ones that voted for me and I appreciate it soooooo much. The best way I can show you how grateful I am
