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!

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.

Vacation Conundrum

She’d been thinking about it quite a bit and had decided for their anniversary trip, she’d wanted to go on a ski trip. She’d even gone out and bought an entire ski suit, complete with mask. When she told him about it at breakfast the next morning, he chuckled as he slid two tickets to Egypt across the table, “I was going to take you to see the great pyramids, one of the eight wonders of the world.”
She looked at him sideways, “I thought there were only  seven wonders of the world.”
He looked at her lovingly, “There were until the day you were born.”
She laughed, “Sweet talk isn’t going to get you out of this ski trip.”
He grinned as he passed her the hotel pamphlet with a pair of diamond earring, “Well, unless you plan on skiing down the pyramids, this will be the only ice you’ll see this year.”
She giggled as she puts the earrings on, “Yes, Sir! Egypt it is!”

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.

Tiffany’s Challenge

Alright, so the other day, I challenged my readers to challenge me in a post so adequately titled: Challenge to Challenge. The first to offer up a challenge was my ever so sweet girl, Tiffany Parkin. She wants me to compare a sextant and a football. Well, I had to look up sextant, because I had no clue what it was. I must admit, I was quite disappointed to find out that it actually has nothing at all to do with sex. *sighs* That Tiffany is such a tease!
So, to start off, these two things have one thing in common right off the bat. I know nothing about either one. I now know that one is used for celestial navigation or something like that…the other, well, is the ball with which American football is played and looks nothing like a ball in my opinion. I guess the next thing they have in common is stars. Although one deals with the stars in the sky, the other often produces the celebrity type.  Pretty sure you could bore me to death talking about either one of them, as well. So, there you have it….I did my best. *shakes her head and mutters about Tiffany being a sadist*

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.

I try not to break

“Broken glass is thrown away,
splinters left become your pain.
Funny how trouble won’t fade away.
What’s in your veins stays in your veins.
I try not to break, but sometimes it is more than I can take.
Blood is thicker than water, they say.
But I’ve tried to wash my blood away.
Funny how those scars don’t leave a trace.
The ones that leave the deepest pain.
I try not to break, but sometimes it is more than I can take.”

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”
