Life of the Party

As far back as I can remember, my mother has always set the most amazing tables for dinner parties and holiday gatherings. Needless to say, she’s always cooked far too much food. I’m not going to write a lot here, just that this entire scene is dedicated to my mom.

Dinner Table

My mother has always insisted that the room is actually the life of the party and decor plays a huge part in that.

The key to all of my mother’s dishes, fancy dinner or not, is presentation.

And no matter what, even when she’s lived completely alone, Christmas time requires decorations. It’s the law!

Challenge to Challenge

It’s that time of year again, when my demons come out the play and my brain just doesn’t want to focus all on its own. So, once again, rather than continue to slap lyrics and songs ALL the time…I am presenting my readers with a challenge. All five of you…lol. I have subscribers that look at the pictures, but I don’t think I have very many actual readers. You guys are my favorites and I can say that, cuz the others don’t read..lol. Ok, so…last year, I offered up a Dangerous Proposition and had a few people participate. I’m hoping that this year’s challenge will bring a few more responses. This year, the suggestions I’m looking for are a bit more specific, yet very random at the same time.
So, here goes…I’m looking to be challenged with two completely random things for me to compare or connect in some way. Some examples would be like…an apple and a wrench, a candle and a cellphone, a piece of cake and a paint brush. Sure, I could use these examples, but it would take the fun out of the challenge for me. This should be especially easy for Grace Sixpence, as last year she always gave me two random things to write about anyway. So, no, you can’t use the ones listed above. So, I challenge you to challenge me. If you’re a blogger that writes and would like to play along just add #challengetochallenge to your suggestion and I will send you two random items to write about, as well.

Every Leaf is a Flower

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~Albert Camus

I love the changing of the leaves in fall. I live in a condo that has a lovely entrance and the avenue that comes down into our neighborhood is lined with the most colorful trees. Every fall, we are blessed with brilliant reds, bright golds, bold oranges…and not just on the trees, but on the ground and whisking around the cars as we generate a gentle wind. The crisp air tingles exposed flesh just enough to make you appreciate your sweater. As the world shifts from greens to the warmest of earth tones, we see the shift of decor in homes, yards, and stores. It makes me crave hot chocolate and caramel apples. I love how creative people get with their pumpkins, too. Reserving them for Autumn rather than mutilating them to make some jagged scene or face for Halloween. This is the coziest of all the seasons to me and though the shift in weather causes me to ache and hurt more physically than usual, I could never hate it.

Do I Wanna Know?

“Do you ever get the feeling that you can’t shift the tide
That sticks around like something’s in your teeth
And some aces up your sleeve
I had no idea that you’re in deep
I dreamt about you near me every night this week
How many secrets can you keep’
‘Cause there’s this tune I found that makes me think of you somehow
When I play it on repeat
Until I fall asleep”
~ Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?

Get Her Head Right

She was really looking forward to a night out with the girls. It had been so long since they’d all hung out without boyfriends and being the only single one in the group…this was definitely a rare opportunity for her. She got herself dressed super cute, with one of her shortest off the shoulder dresses and her newest pair of thigh high boots. She was almost ready. She just needed to get her head right.
She found the small trinket box in the bottom drawer of her armoire and pulled out a blunt. She pulled it under her nose like a fancy gent would smell a proper Cuban cigar. She lit and took a deep hit. She closes her eyes as she let the THC wash over her and immediately take her mind on that nice little floating coaster that only begins to settle over her like a warm fog when she exhales slowly. Hmmmm, yes, this is some fine weed. He did good.

Not So Haunted

It’s no secret that I’m an atheist. So, it should come as no surprise that I’m also a skeptic when it comes to most things that are considered supernatural, particularly ghosts, possessions, demons, and anything considered haunted. However, most people never question how I came to these conclusions. For one thing, I’ve spent multiple nights in a house that was supposedly haunted and I never saw a thing. Haunted houses are especially suspect to me, because they’re always old houses. It’s like apartments or houses built in the last 50 years are never haunted. Plenty of murders and bizarre deaths happen in homes like those, but for some reason they’re never reported to be haunted. I’ve never heard of an atheist being possessed. For that matter, it seems to be limited to Catholics.
What might really surprise people is that I do believe that there is life on other planets, but not in our solar system. I also believe in vampires, but not the blood drinking, murderous type. I believe in psyvamps, as they feed off of energy, and this is something I’m quite familiar with, because I’ve been doing that very thing since I was a child. Psyvamps get a very bad reputation, but that’s a topic for another day. I, also, believe in certain forms of…well, for the lack of a better word…magic. This is also something I’ve experienced and perhaps one day, I’ll write more about that. For now, I just wanted to touch on some basic supernatural ideas, because I’m currently watching The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. *laughs*
I dunno, I’m just not big into believing in make believe monsters, when all the real monsters I’ve seen and met have been human. Perhaps that’s why crime shows intrigue me so much. That or I’m just a twisted weirdo. *shrugs & giggles*

Fall Into Autumn

Oh get your dirty minds out of the gutter, I am not talking about some hot girl named Autumn. Yeah, I know my readers. *laughs* I’ve been working on this room for over a week. I kept adding to it, taking away, moving this, replacing that.  Finally, I got it the way I want it. I look at the room and wish I could sink down in that couch with a good book. It sorta dawned on me, that I have a beautiful living room with furniture that is less than a year old and superbly comfortable. It needs to cool off first, that room is almost all windows and its too bright…too hot in there. *hisses at the sun*

Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.

Nothing Specific

It’s really easy to misunderstand what’s going on with other people, especially in a virtual world. So often the message depends on the perception of the reader and unless you’re adding a bit of an emote along with your words they can be easily misunderstood and thus the drama begins. What thing is for sure, there’s plenty of that happening across the grid. I think its one of the main reasons I like to voice. I don’t like my voice, but I do prefer talking to people when I can, because the inflections of one’s voice can really can make a world of difference. I realize I’m sorta rambling on about nothing specific here, but sometimes that’s just how my mind works.
