Just another day in paradise.

Have you heard of Cuddl Duds?  I'm sure you have, because I'm always late to the party and hear about things long after they've gone way mainstream.  Anyhow, my Momma got me leggings and a camisole for Christmas, and OMG I could live in these things.  I am today; I'm living in them.  Complete with my old-lady gray cardigan and my pink slippers with the fuzzy little pompoms.

I modeled my outfit for Jimi, striking a pose in the dining room and teasing him, "This isn't exactly what you signed up for when you decided to spend your life with me, is it?"

"Thirty-year-old gran-ny," he sang at me from the kitchen.

This is what I love about vacation; wearing underwear as clothes and laughing with the man I love while we fix breakfast at noon.

We (Jimi) had plans to paint the hallway while we're off, but we've not done anything to work toward that goal yet and he has to work tomorrow.  Maybe Friday?  More likely it will be put off until our next 3-day weekend.  I don't enjoy painting, probably because I'm not any good at it.  I think it's going to be all professional and awesome and in reality my paint always gets on the baseboards or seeps under the tape or I drop a brush in the middle of the floor and splatter little droplets everywhere.  That's just how I roll.

I did manage to clear off the dresser in our bedroom, and I sorted laundry and have started the Last Great Clothes Cleaning of 2010.  I'd really like to start the New Year with my house clean and organized and make a goal of keeping it that way.  Then again, I'm on vacation, so I really can't commit to anything too big at this time.

There's a Toddlers & Tiaras marathon on TLC today.  For once, I wish we had two working TVs in our home.  Jimi watched long enough to see a man cheering for his little girl who was dressed in fishnets and pancake makeup, muttered "You're a bad dad", then flipped the channel.  I love a good trainwreck; he just doesn't appreciate the genre as an art form.

Jimi's first batch of beef jerky was declared a success - it was really very tasty.  Today we're going to go with fruit - a tray of fruit leather (also known as "fruit roll-ups") and then three trays of sliced kiwi and apples.  We've got mangoes and bananas and pineapple on the schedule, too, but they're not quite ripe yet.

OH!  And I made some amazing vanilla ice cream last night.  Three cups of cream, a cup of sugar...Vacation is going to make me so fat.


  1. I got Cuddl Duds for Christmas too! I had mentioned to Mom how cold it was at work and she gave me a couple pairs of Cuddl Duds like a week later. She took them to Antarctica with her and said she couldn't have gone w/ out them. I absolutely love them!!

  2. It sounds like you're having a nice vacation. I'm glad his beef jerky was a success. I remember when we first got a food dehydrater, there wasn't anything we consumed for weeks that wasn't dehydrated.haha


Please don't make me cry.
