Bathtub time, couch time and found bloomers.

I’m famous for having the weirdest dreams.
I’m sure you’ve read about them. Somewhere.
I woke up Monday morning and told the Coach: “I had a dream that we were in a big bathtub, having sexy time.”
He said:” That’s great.”
Me in my sexiest 7:30 am voice-“Ooooh, it waaaass”
Him: “I’m just happy I was there.”

Thank goodness it was him and not a darn alligator.

Updating the man cave/theater/party room.
I’ve talked about updating this room for well over a year, and we’re finally making some headway. The Coach was hesitant because he insinuated that I do everything in the house to my liking. I don’t understand why that’s a problem. Everyone knows it’s best if I get my way.
We got a new couch after 16 years and I LOVE it so much that if I were a single gal, I’d marry it.

We’ve been slowly updating all the upholstery (wall panels, drapes) in the room (Thank you to my MIL & FIL for that) and we’re going to redo the bar countertop and add in stone on the backsplash.  I’ll share before/after photos when all is said and done.

I sent a pic of the couch to the girls for them to see the update. They both said it was lovely, and my Lolo pointed out that she was impressed with the size of our “pool table-shaped bar cart”.
Honestly, I don’t know where she gets it from…..
I had to empty the liquor cabinet for my electrician to do some wiring. Sassy pants.

I love finding surprises in the yard. And I don’t mean accidentally walking in dog poop.


Lot’s of happy orchids.

Have you stumbled upon anything fun this week? I know, it’s only Tuesday but I’m trying to be positive.

Vehicle switcharoo, dem’ damn gators and my girls are solid.

An update of sorts from casa de Busy Bee.

The Coach purchased a new truck for himself. I was floored by how large it is. It’s actually larger in real life than this pic. He needed a bigger truck (“we’re gonna need a bigger truck”)  to tow his car trailer and his xl smoker. Also, the occasional Joker and midnight toker.

It’s extremely deluxe inside; it has that open concept feel that people on HGTV are always looking for.
This new truck means, Lolo trades in Coach’s previous truck that she’s been driving for several years, after trading in (to us) her High School Toyota FJ; which we’ve kept because it’s just a cool vehicle and we have a thousand garages and they don’t make them anymore. run.on.sentence.much.

It’s the old fable of vehicle move-alongs through the family. When she and Mattis drive down for Christmas break, she’ll upgrade from her pickup truck. She and Mattis are stoked.  Then again, Mattis, is always stoked.  

Recent pic of Lolo and Mattis in VA.

I realized while writing this, that all four of us have white vehicles. Not Mattis, just Lolo, Linds, Coach, and Suz. The Coach and I have had solely white cars/trucks since 1997 aside from one brief time when we leased via our business silver vehicles for 2 years. Neither of us was super happy for that time period and we went back to white.
I’m not a vehicle racist.
But I am a liar.

I saw this the other day.

I adore dolphins, but I’m still having my dreams invaded by alligators weekly. It.never.ends.

So, we’re all hunky-dory here. Linds is doing well too. To quote the wonderful late Donna Summer-“She works hard for her money, so hard for it honey”.

No big weekend plans here. The Coach is coaching and I’m hoping to finish up my veggie garden and some of the other never-ending to-dos at this compound that we call Home Sweet Home. I’m a tad excited to be baby dog sitting Lolo and Nathan’s Max Max.

What’s on your agenda?
Surfing in Costa Rica? Alligator wrestling in Florida? Garage sale-ing in Indiana? I’ve heard that garage sale-ing is a sport for some people.

Have a great weekend doing whatever it is that you choose to do without me.
XOXO
