Boobies!!

And what a busty gal I am. Sort of along the Jane Russell line.


So off I went to a semi-local lingerie boutique to have a long overdue fitting.
For those women who have been born busty, having an ample bosom usually sucked when it came to the bra department. You used to be able to only find and wear white, black or beige and nary a sign of lace. So, after marveling at the selections now offered to a full figured post baby body gal, the staff assisted me and I left with two gorgeous bras. One by Elomi in purple with a little see through material and pretty flower design and one by Panache in beige with lace.

My breasts have not been this perky since I began puberty.

And with that, I wish you all a very Happy New Year.

Hugs, Kisses and Cheers!

She is Reading

And what is that she is reading? I have picked up a book on a whim. A sort of whim. I was reading a section in the magazine "Real Simple" where the ask people about the books the read and why and someone suggested a series, yes I know, I have mentioned my hatred of those before, called the "Mitford Years". I figure, what the hell and picked up the first book , "At Home in Mitford" from my library.

It is a simple story about small time life tossed with a hearty mix of Christianity. The Episcopalian kind no less as the main character is a one Father Tim. So far, I like it. It is so different from what I would normally read that it is a breath a fresh air. No, the story is not complex or dark or filled with seedy underbellies. There is quirkiness, redemption and simplicity. A rare thing these days in life or books. Quite frankly, when I had started to read it I thought, "I might not get through this." Then I figured, "So what?" There is n…

Lara's Cowl

Howdy! I am still here, just been busy and distracted. Not a bad thing.

I have finally started to knit myself a cowl. My obsession with this particular accessory has no bounds I tell you. The thing is, I decided this during this weekend's big snow storm so I had to use what I had on hand. That meant wool and circular needles that are 24" instead of 32". So far the cowl seems to be coming along nicely and I look forward to when it is completed.  The pattern is from Red Heart and here is what their version looks like.

Lara's Cowl

Just so you know, the cowl nor myself will look like that.

I also came across another fabulous knitting site called LeethalKnits.com. Her work is pretty great and she has a nice amount of patterns for sale and for free.

Over the weekend I made a nice cabbage salad with dijon mustard dressing. Very, very tasty and went well with our salmon loaf.

And yes, it is snowing here again in NJ. White Christmas indeed. Here is a picture of my backyard. Th…

A Regular Day

I was going to rant about how annoying it is that every single company in the world seems to only do coupons and entries for contests via Facebook. Seriously. I get it that is how A LOT of the world operates, but jeez it is silly and alienating to us customers who choose not to use that service.

Good thing that I got sidetracked by a site for a company called Old Factory Soap Company.

I have a strange fetish for elegant soaps. Maybe I think it makes my house feel all fancy. Or maybe it is the scents themselves. Regardless, I hope to one day get my hand on some of their soaps and sniff them all day long.

And now I have the normal housework to do, laundry, dishes, vacuuming and even some last minute knitting. Not as exciting as jetting off to like The Maldives, but hey, who lives better than me? ;-)

I was supposed to take our cat to the vet, but cancelled since she seems to be keeping her food down. I am hoping it was just a little irritation due to her age and that she stays okay becau…

Thor the Movie

For close to two weeks I have tried to watch Thor. Last night I watched the final 45 minutes and when it was done I realized just how much I disliked the film.

If I had paid in the theater I would have asked for my money back. Thankfully, I was at home. It can't be that bad you say. You are probably right, different strokes for different folks. For me, I did not dig it and here please, let me share my unsolicited reasons of why I pretty much gave this one star on Netflix.


The main character himself - Thor. Arrogant little bastard should have been cast out way before the Frost Giant incident. I found no way to care about him. Is it because he is a Norse God? No. He was just meh.The dialogue. By all means watch this with closed captioning and marvel at the boring speeches and the unbelievable use of "Oh." for filler.The Destroyer. Yes it is in the comic. Yes I think some crazy ass metal being created by Odin seems a little off, but hey, I am not Stan Lee and the man is a ge…

Not One of My Better Days

We all have had a day or maybe even two where we want to crawl up into a ball and hibernate for a weekend in bed.

Today would be that kind of day for moi.

Our son had a rough time sleeping last night so the hubby and I are operating at 55% at best.  The child, who had a pretty good morning, but was somewhat testy and emotional, is now napping. Praise the Baby Jesus. Oh and FYI - Toddler emotional upheavals are on par with PMS. Good times. Well, not for my husband.

Our two pets are special needs and geriatric. That means, my insane cat, who is 17 and ill, does nothing but "meow" incessantly for food. Even after she inhaled the spoonful of wet food already eaten. Once she does chow down, she will, at times, proceed to throw it up or shit it out someplace other than the litter box. This then makes our second floor smell like a rotting morgue. After today's vomit moment, I have opened the windows, thank God it is in the high 40's, and I have burned incense. If I knew wha…

Hello Again

What a whirlwind of food and visiting. We went to a friend's house where it was like a mini UN. Guests from Norway, Germany, France, and various parts of the US. A very, very good time was had by all. I am still missing the wonderful brussels sprouts they always prepare for holiday gatherings.

Now it is December and I need to do some decorating and hope to get that done this week. I pulled out a musical snow globe and my son thinks it is the greatest thing ever so he keeps pushing the button to hear it play music. Children really do enjoy the simple things.

As for me, I have been writing in spurts, which is good and bad. There is something bizarre about writing some intense dialogue only to be interrupted by your toddler looking for "bear" or his "car". He is also under the weather which doesn't help. Luckily the contractor is not here today so little man can nap in his crib this afternoon.

Yesterday, while my brother and husband went to Home Depot and Lowe…
