crabby Kat's Journal, 18 December 2012

I'm sitting here looking out at big fluffy white flakes of snow falling in the wetlands; a small squirrel with snow on him eating sunflower seeds on the deck, while black-capped chickadees flit in and help themselves to a few. Another squirrel climbed the cedar tree right outside the window, but the first one must of warned it off, or it retreated to try climbing the deck support from the other side. That happens sometimes, then the loser of the arguement takes a flying leap into the cedar tree. Life is sweet.

I just made a pan of milk chocolate pecan fudge to gift to people; later I'm making one of dark chocolate dried sweet cherry fudge. Probably will mix up some cookie dough for some baking before the dinner on Thursday, and then more before the Christmas Eve dinner on Monday. I don't have to leave for my Strength class for an hour, and its warm enough for the pavement to be snow-free by then. The snow sure is pretty.

Beau sure enjoys the squirrel and bird visitors. He also likes it when I play with him with his Da Bird toy; he catches the heck out of that thing and shakes it like making a major kill, my big game hunter. Don't want him to be frustrated by not being able to get at his visitors; his neurological issues seem better since I've been trying to balance his entertainment more; so I guess his neurological issues were brought on by pure frustration. No pheno or gabapentin in his future, thank goodness!

The following was supposed to be a separate entry, but FS wouldn't let me post another so soon after the above, so I had to cut and paste it in here:

So, my partner rolled over, plopped an arm over me one morning this weekend, and said "ow!". Apparently my hipbone area is too pronounced when I'm lying on my side. Who woulda thunk? Called me Boney Maroney, which sounded like an insult.

Decided to make today a two-journal-entry day, since my first entry was filled with my positive outlook; didn't want to sully it with my little worries that niggle in the back of my brain.

I'm working at getting firm and fit and healthy, and am happy that I'm somewhere between a size 8 and 10. It does bug me that I have a lot of loose skin, so although I'm no skeletal dame, I do give the impression of stuff hanging off a skeleton here and there (despite my cool muscles i'm building); how the heck am I supposed to feel sexy? Just dance some of my most sugggestive new Latin moves & ignore the negative thoughts? I've seen some women; no sex symbols, but that have the presence and attitude that just exudes sex appeal, overweight, skinny, etc. Where does that come from, and how do I get some, LOL? I must have it inside of me; one partner told me that my Talent (from Xanth novels we were both reading) was sex appeal. Wake up, Talent!

How do you all get that motor running? Urm, in not too graphic language, please, hee hee.

LOVE your journal ~ had to go get a cup of hot tea to sip and reread it. Was like enjoying a little painted story book! I am so happy for you and Beau - no pheno - wish activity would have been that effective for my furbaby. As for the sex appeal - I too have envied those women who defied the sterotypical magazine cover (or centerfold) image of sex-goddess but totally rocked throughout their days and lives. I think it has to do with true self confidence being at the core of everything they 'are' and 'do' through some mystical self actualization. I don't have it but it's impressive isn't it?

Thanks, Bella & Neptune, you made me smile, and then laugh. I want some of that mystical self actualization!
