>It’ll be a White..Christ…err..Halloween.

>We have a heavy snowfall warning where I live right now. We generally have them from about mid fall on until mid spring. Today was supposed to be an exercise day but honestly.. It’s turned into a curl up on the couch with my cat, drink tea and read kind of day. I’m already planning a bath later to have with my Blackberry Merlot. It’s just a lounge around kind of day. Which I’m okay with. They don’t happen often anymore.

I’ve been lusting at the new fall Lush products. I can’t decide if I should splurge now or save up and splurge after Christmas when they’re blowing stuff out. I’m also starting to eye up the main bathroom again thinking about a make over for it so I claim it. It seems the basement wont be getting done anytime soon so I’ll take over the bathroom up here and make it pretty and completely Serene’ed out. I’m excited.

>Dance Monkey Dance!

>So I think by now you all know about PinkCherry.ca right? Well, a while ago they let me go through their site and pick out a few toys. I found something and I latched on to it.. hard. You see. It’s adorable. It’s funny. And it’s orgasmic. What am I talking about?

Oh.

My lovelies.

THIS!

This my dearest pervs is the Mini Monkey Vibe… it’s a monkey bullet! It has the typical and classic round dial to control the power and takes 2 AA batteries. The vibrations on the mini vibrator are about middle of the road. They are not buzzy at all, nor are they the deep thuddy vibrations either. They are wonderfully… perfect.

This toy is quite small. It fits easily in the palm of your hand with a lot of room to spare. The cord is a fair length though I do wish it would be a bit longer. It’s fine for solo play but for partner play it can be a bit too short if your partner gets too far away. Of course very rarely do we want them far away now do we ? :)

This toy is made out of rubber, and can be cleaned with soap and water, however this toy is NOT waterproof so have a care to not get water near the battery. If you get lube or juices on the controller just wipe it down with a damp cloth or disinfectant wipe.

Overall, I enjoy this toy a lot. It’s great for use with dildos and during sex because it is small and can easily be slid between a toy or your partners body. Plus… how fucking adorable is this thing?! People.. IT’S A MONKEY!

>Oh Baby Shoot Me Now

>I apologize for the lack of posting this month. You see.. I’m currently sitting on a dog. Not really, but I am dog sitting…. though with this dog I would like to sit on him. He is driving me up the wall. I literally cannot leave him alone long enough to shower.. or go to the bathroom..or run to my room to grab a hair elastic. This dog is the whiniest, clingiest most untrained dog I have ever met. I actually hate this dog and that kills me because I love pets.. and I spoil them and love on them but this one.. fuck me. He pees in the house, even though he knows to go outside and does ask to do so..when he wants to. He’s recently taken to gnawing on the brand new four thousand dollar furniture. That shit was curbed quickly and unpleasantly let me tell ya. He’s an attention hog.. I even go to pet my dog and he flips his shit. He will not sit by himself, he HAS to be in somebodies lap 24/7. He sleeps in his kennel at night.. once he barks and whines himself to sleep. Honestly I just.. ugh! This dog has ruined me for little dogs. I just cannot do it. My dog is sweet, and wonderful. She’s quiet and house trained. She was a stray away from her mother too early so all she’s ever had is human influence. I can tell her to take a toy to her bed and she will. I can tell her to clean up her mess and she does. I can talk to her like a human and she understands and listens. This little fucker? “No,” is one syllable too many. I get that his owner spoils him because other than him she lives alone. But if he gets away with the stuff he’s trying to get away with here holy mother of fuck. When I went away for the wedding a few months ago and left my dog here.. she pouted and flopped around the house for Lady Di. This one? No pout. Just carnage. I have two weeks left of this. I’ll survive… the question is whether or not he will.

Thursday I went into to town and looked after my niece for most of the day. She cried for a bit then curled up on top of me and slept for almost two hours.. which is a huge deal considering she normally only sleeps for about 20 minutes. I love the kid beyond anything. It’s ridiculous.

Lady Di and I have been going to movies at the cheap theater in town. … which oddly enough is actually the nicer theater since they redid it. We’ve been having a blast. We’re partial to cartoons though. So far I’ve seen Brave and the new Snow White. I much preferred Brave. Next week we’re going to see what’s playing and pick one to go to as well. Last time I was there with Elle, I got to see Beardsley. I was excited, I rarely get to see him. He of course would not come see my cartoon. However, for my birthday I may make him come see one with me.. just for kicks. I suspect the rant after it will be epic. I like other movies of course but lately I’ve been on a cartoon kick.. a break from real life.

My exercising has been going well. I’m losing pounds and inches.. and staying motivated. It’s the longest I’ve ever gone and been able to stick to exercising.I am in love with the heavy bag. It’s fun.. and exhausting. I’ve come out with more than one bruise on my hands. It’s great for working out aggression. Just sayin’.

>*heeee*

>I was sick today. As soon as I sat up I felt like I was going to be sick. I spent the day curled up on the couch watching disney movies and listening to gory audio books. They went awesome together. Pepto and I? We made great friends today. So, naturally when I just about puked when I sat up exercise was out. That’s just tempting fate.

Now though? I feel awesome! A couple weeks ago my stubborn bitch returned to me. I lost her somewhere along the lines,I got blips here and there but I haven’t really seen her in over a year. Eventually a kicked dog just stays down, so she left because she couldn’t deal with it. She’s definitely back though. My stubborn bitch showed up in full force tonight. Up until now she’d been hibernating. Reacquainting herself with me. She was done with that. I just finished doing my weights and 100 crunches.. which is the most crunches I’ve done yet. She showed up not only with my stubborn but stubborn pissyness fueled by “fuck yous and this’s,” which has always been my attitude. It’s a nice return. 

I missed her. I missed her dearly. It’s like having a piece of myself back.. I could not be happier right now. For being such a terrible sicky day, it was an awesome night!

>Oh Ho Ho All The Snow!

>I am curled up in my over sized living room chair,  wearing my new sweater wrap, tshirt, pajama pants and fuzzy socks. The chair is turned so I can see both the fire place and the window on the other side of the room. I have candles lit and a pot of tea brewing. My favorite blanket is in the dryer getting ready to be snuggled in and I’m happy.. completely at peace. 

It’s snowing guys. SNOWING. I love Fall and I love winter. Snow IN Fall? Fucking win! It’s gorgeous, I love it. Snow and I go way back. I’ve always loved it and looked forward to it. It’s always meant snuggly blankets and old Christmas shows on tv. It’s meant apple cider and Samhain (I have never once had a Samhain without snow.) It means Winter Solstice and my birthday. The only thing I love more than looking at trees turning beautiful golden and toasted colors is looking out at a world that is covered in a deep, thick shimmering blanket of snow with the barren trees peeking out. Weeping willows with snow and icicles clinging to them. Evergreens enveloped in it before they’re brought inside.

I walked into my house the other day and teared up. I had been baking and cooking and canning. There was the scent of coffee and tea and it just smelled..”right.” It smelled like my great grandmas house always smelled this time of year. That’s when I knew I was doing something right. I have never in my life been so content and happy. Just.. at peace with everything. Free.
