What is New in Your World?

It has been awhile since I have checked in with those of you that read my blog, so I thought today would be a perfect time to change that. 

If you follow my tweets, read my blog and join me on cam, you probably know what is going on in my world, but, in the event that you are not up to date on the happenings in my world, allow me to share more:

Abby is 4 months old and I am positive that the terrible two’s have arrived and yes, they are real. She is getting taller, so she is lanky and still just as clumsy as ever. She has a vet appointment Tuesday for another round of puppy shots, but don’t worry, everyone that has to pet her for LOVE will give her a “cookie” or three. MtnMan’s strawberry patch that was overgrown has been tamed and destroyed. Thank you, Abby. I think he is going to remove all of that and replace it with Astro Turf. 

I am only on cam today and tomorrow, and then will be offline through Sunday. We are going into the mountains and will be out of cell range most of the time, however, I will stay connected as much as possible. If you are a member, my site will continue to have Friday updates, and if you follow me on SnapChat, you will be able to join me in the mountains for some spur of the moment snaps.. 

We are just a few days away from my favorite month, and then only a couple weeks before my absolute favorite day. Thanksgiving. 

That is all that comes to mind, for me, so now it is your turn. What is new in your world? I would love for you to respond with anything, even if you feel like it is minor.. like going to the local park for an evening stroll one last time before it turns cold…  

Your Reading List

I have gotten back into reading now that I am settled and finally finished with the divorce. It is relaxing and I enjoy reading different subjects, much more than I used to. It seemed like one I found a subject, I would go to the book store and buy as many books on that one topic, that I could find. Now, I have a whole stack of books that are from all sorts of fields. 

I am currently reading “Winter in Madrid”; it is a good read, but it took me awhile to get into it and now I can hardly put it down to go to sleep. While on our trip to PHX, I came home with three new books, but before I delve into those, I think I am going to read a book about the Lindbergh baby, or maybe one on Amelia Earhart. I also recently read an article on Eleanor Roosevelt, which has peaked my interest into more about her life. Has anyone a good recommendation on her? I am not too interested in the politics, but more her story. 

What are you currently reading? 

Bunny Sighting

Sunday Night MtnMan spotted a cottontail hopping out from the spaghetti squash and taking cover behind a couple big boulders. I only saw the top of his head, and he squished down further once he realized he could be spotted. Adorable! 

I was hoping that he would take cover in amongst the veggies so that he could live with us, in harmony. lol. But, alas, he must have moved on because it is day 2 and there has been no sighting of his cute face. 

 

I Tell You Mine, You Tell Me Yours

My weekend was busy, but amazing! I started my day going to a soccer game; we won. Then I stopped by to see MtnMan and he surprised me with lunch, which is always nice; I had tater tots. From there I went to the grocery store; the young man knew how to bag groceries, so no complaints there. I made it home and got started on the dresser project, but only had 2.5 hours to devote because I wanted to go fishing; we caught two bass. Priorities. Sunday I was on cam, earlier than usual so we skipped the diner.

So, about this dresser project. I have been applying paint to the cabinet for a few days now. After watching a video from a paint manufacturer on how to properly paint furniture, I have decided to take my time and basically dry brush each layer on. It looks good, but not as great as I was hoping. So, I will lightly sand the top and apply another coat; hopefully that will give me a smooth shiny surface I want. I have not even started on the drawers, feet or the mirror. Let me ask, what the fuck was I thinking? I really need to give MtnMan his garage back. Now, with that said, he has not said a word about it, and has no problem parking outside, but it is something that I should not have taken on. I mean, I have never fucking refurbished furniture before, and I am still questioning those who enjoy such tasks. lol.

Another “project” that has the other half of the garage taken up is drying out some family photos that I was able to salvage from Texas. Oy. My parents wedding album was completely soaked, but thankfully it was in a beautiful album that protected the pictures. However, I had to pull them out and lay them about to get the dampness out of them. Along with that, I have family obits, baby pictures and a box of random pictures going back generations… most were damp. I also have 100 year old newspaper articles from WWI and WWII and a few other notable events. Those were saved. All of which was in a gorgeous cedar chest, which protected everything enclosed for 50+ years… until the items were pulled out and left in the rain. But, that is neither here, nor there. It is what it is, and other than proving that I did the smart thing by walking away from such negative hate, I have what is most important.  My happiness and a future that is mine. So, there is that. lol. 

I almost forgot to mention, I have Mom’s wedding gown that she made. It is beautiful and showing the age of time, but other than a few stains, I am going to try to get it professionally cleaned, if I can find someone that is willing to take the chance. I say that because it is 63 years old and it was handmade. It is in very delicate condition. 

Now it is your turn. Tell me what has been going on in your world… 

Another Gem . . .

While we were in Texas I had the amazing pleasure of meeting Amber. She is just as sweet in person and she is online, with a wicked sense of humor. When I started this 12 years ago, I had no idea I would meet so many wonderful people, and some would become lifelong friends. I have been so fortunate in this online world that has been created around my site. 

Molly, thank you so much for making the drive to Bastrop to have breakfast with MtnMan and me, especially because your days off are scattered through your weeks and you hardly have time to relax as it is. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are an absolute gem, and one that I truly treasure. 

 

 

Not Much Notice…

G’afternoon and a very happy Monday from me to you! I hope that you had a restful weekend, and that the week has gotten off to a fantastic start. 

This week will be somewhat normal, with the exception of tomorrow (Tuesday). I am going to make a custom video in the morning, and then will be on cam, but it will be short lived. MtnMan needs to go out of town to pick something up and I have decided to ride with him. While gone I will be filming new content, so I will still be connected, just not on cam after 6p EST. I will be back online Thursday, normal time and this short out of town trip will not interfere with the member’s cam shows. 

I hope to see you guys at the #VNALive member’s cam tonight at 11p EST –> gain access through the VNA banner on the club page of my site. 

Stepping Up on a Soapbox

I am stepping up on a soapbox…

It truly fucking annoys me when some people respond to a comment, or a conversation, with an opposing view for the sake of argument. It is not cute and it certainly is not going to give you the kind of attention you might be craving. How about just have a conversation and not feel the need to interject with needless bullshit. 

We all need that human connection, whether it be in person or through online avenues. Having a conversation is one thing, but disagreeing when their is no need for it is another. I am not suggesting that we all agree and have the same opinions; that would be boring. What I am saying is that not every comment is need for you to give a disagreeing position on. 

You might get more attention or have greater amounts of response if you just have a conversation, without being combative for a response. 

To be honest, I am less likely to respond to you now (or ever) if you are one to just argue. I used to know someone who thrived on arguing, even if he agreed, and it was fucking annoying. In fact, he is not liked among most groups of people and there is a reason for that. 

Those who argue because you are bored, or you get a laugh out of it, are some annoying fucks! Good grief, just fucking don’t respond. 

Yadda, Yadda, Chitty-Chatter

Last week was spent in Texas and away from my computer, but I still managed to spend a good part of the week doing new videos and content. I was active on Snapchat, adding vids and pics throughout my week, so join today so you don’t miss out on any of the fun. I do a little bit of everything on there, from solo selfies, to fun videos during content shoots and even roadside blowjobs, if the mood strikes. I also have fun while driving to the Post Office, getting completely naked and flashing truckers. 

You might have heard that while I was in Texas my divorce was finalized. A huge relief to finally be done with that chapter in my life. My phone continued to erupt in fireworks and celebrations all the way through Sunday, thanks to my family of friends. I am truly fortunate to have a small group that are my family. 

Since I was gone last week I have a few extra member’s shows that I will be doing over the course of the next few days. Follow my tweets and blog posts to stay up to date. 

I have decided that it is time to tackle my furniture project, so Wednesday I will pick up the supplies and start that next Saturday. So, wish me luck on that! 

No Member Shows This Week

This is a reminder that I won’t be online this week, so the member shows will be rescheduled for next week. This will be the only post, so I hope that you stay in touch with my tweets and blog posts, or else you might be confused when you look for me this week…

Next week the schedule is as follows:

Sunday – VNA at 11p EST

Monday – VNA at 11p EST

Tuesday – VNA at 11p EST

Thursday – VNA at 11p EST 

No Crumbs in Bed!

BD- you are always so thoughtful and the last bundle you sent was a box of goodies to replenish my snack locker! Pretzels of all sizes, goldfish, and a couple boxes of ritz peanut butter crackers. I have always had a no-crumbs-allowed in my bed, and the only way to maintain that rule is to not eat anything that will create crumbs, while in bed, like pretzels. lol. I am breaking this rule daily now and I am not even upset about it! 

Thank you for keeping my snack locker fully stocked!
