Beach Bunny

We fed the Condo Bunny under the stairs yesterday. He really enjoyed the lettuce. It was very peaceful to watch a timid bunny eat. If a bunny will eat in your presence, then you’re doing life correctly.

Lilli took this shot. Good job, Hon.


Shhhh. Bunnies are eating.

Distracted
Reactive
Didactic
Unattractive

I close my eyes
To listen for your words
They feather down on me
Like a flock of birds

When I find my still
And meditate on choice
I climb through clouds
And hear your voice

My sunglasses sprinkled
With drops of rain
I don’t mind
Transcend this plane

I open my eyes
And see your worlds
Kaleidoscopic prisms
Rainbow swirls

Colorful snowflakes
Buzzing like a hive
Dancing on my vision
Proof that you’re alive

I pray to you
Bring me peace
Only then
Does my calm increase

Thank you
For your amazing display
I am humbled and awed
By your magic every day

Mystery

It’s a mystery as to why I can’t find a job. Why I would start my own business. What the name of my new party planning pop-up is going to be called.

Any suggestions???

Premise:

I wrote this murder mystery and published on Amazon: Updo! Now, I’m going to start hosting this adult role-playing game in my own local community. I’ve already done this with my friends, back in KC. It’s the most fun I’ve ever had at a party. And totally original. I also threw a similar party for my daughter, but age appropriate. They seemed to really like it. It was more of a junior high adventure with clues. I could even write new, customized mysteries for any theme: Western saloon, 50s diner, 40s detective noir.

The mystery for this one is: someone is murdered at a salon and all of the party guests are a character from the story. While relaxing with spa-like activities, the guests participate in clue-revealing sketches. Everyone takes a “stab” (LOL) at guessing who the killer is at the end. There are stations, silliness and a very funny makeup and hair makeover contest for all the ladies.

What should I call my new business?

Martha’s Murder Mysteries?
Pop-up Party Mysteries?

What would you call it? I would love your suggestions!

Beach!

Went to the beach this morning at around 8 am. Saw a bobcat!!! Beachdunegrassycat! Bobcat Beachthwait. OMG!

I’ve lived in Missouri my entire life except for the last two months and I’ve never seen a bobcat. 44 years old. And I saw one this morning on the path to the beach! Eeeeek! Freaked me out, but it was so cool. We kept our distance. My husband said he thought he saw a coyote the other morning on the way to work. We live in a densely packed neighborhood. WOW! Did not get a picture, he was too far off and I like my face where it is.

I’m a country girl, so it takes a lot to surprise me. But this morning was very cool.

Had a great time at the beach. Bobbed around in the ocean. Did not get mauled by any beach cougars and found a coupla cool shells. Got some sun, exercise and my mojo’s rising.

Have an amazing day! I know I will.

Grilled hamburgers for lunch! 😀 Yay, Saturday!

340s

Today, I am 347.6 lbs. I am still steadily losing weight almost every day. There are some days that I don’t lose anything. Those days, however, are few and far between.

I went in for weight loss surgery last December 2016 and since then, I’ve managed to lose 109 lbs. That feels great. Since August 2012, I’ve dropped 166 total. Plus, I’m only 4 1/2 months in. Can you imagine 1 year from now??

It may seem like a pretty standard thing to most people, but at my heaviest, I lost my ability to take a relaxing bath. I always take a shower every day, but occasionally, it’s nice to have a soak. And at 500 lbs, it wasn’t a luxury I could indulge.

So, this last Tuesday, after freezing my toes off most of the day, I thought to try a nice hot bath to warm up. My body temperature is hard to regulate with no thyroid and rapid weight loss. My extremely remote appendages are typically frigid. So, I could either vigorously exercise, throw on a pair of socks or relax in a steamy pool of life-altering suds. Bath it is!

And you know what? I fit. I fit nicely in the tub. With water! More than just a drop! Ain’t that great? I thought so. It was an ordinary achievement in a routine day, but it meant the world to be in the tub again. These small things are what excite me the most.

I can’t wait to fly again! If and when I can afford it. 🙂 Until then, I’ll fly high on my little daily wins.

Murder Mystery Spa Party!

Would you buy this roleplay manual on Amazon?

Excerpt:

“Get ready to relax, kick back, laugh and have a grand old time with your
best galfriends! This party is so fun and easy to throw. Every woman already
has all the props in her bathroom! The host does need to read the entire set of instructions, lists and scripts to prepare and understand game play. The party is even more fun if you’re serving cocktails, not just water. Like cucumber martinis for those tired ladies with a cucumber garnish for those tired lady eyes! You’re trying to solve a murder, but you’re also trying to relax and pamper yourself. Might as well, you’re at a spa! So. There’s been a murder! Obvs!

Barbera Bouffant, the salon owner of the Updo Salon and Spa, was found in the tanning booth…fried! She’s been murdered. Someone tampered with the bed and she’s toast. She’s dead, but her tan looks amazing. She’ll be the prettiest corpse at the funeral home. Madge, the manager, finds her first. The back door was closed but unlocked. However, Barbera could have accidentally forgotten to lock up. She did that often. You and your guests have to figure out who the killer is. Some of you work at the salon and some of you are clients, but you’re all suspects. Everyone had a motive and opportunity to kill Babs. Dun-dun-dun!”

Available now! Click here to check it out. Really low price, as low as I could make it-$2.99.

And starting tomorrow, you can download my other book for free! FREE! Limited time only. Please check it out, it’s a quick read and you can’t beat the price. 🙂 It’s quite a departure from the game above, but it’s some of the best writing I’ve done IMO.

Oh, and I graduated today! I finally have my associate degree in graphic design! Great day for me! I hope for you, too. Hit me up if you need a design or logo. 😉 If it’s for a good cause, I usually volunteer.
