it must be the beer

low carb beer of course.

spending the late afternoon early evening outside
has left me feeling high 🙂
especially being on a patio, feeling the sun on my bare shoulders, kissing my face…
today was certainly not a waste of make up day.
the intention was dinner…but no food was eaten till closer to 10!

i couldn’t drink since i was driving…but there were a few beers waiting for me at home
(ok ok so they weren’t waiting for me at home, but they were definitely waiting for me at the beer store lol)

Adele is singing me love songs (because surely she would fall in love with me if she met me)
i had a good day….and i’ve been writing my little heart out.

life is good.

and so when i am feeling awesomely amazing, i think about my life
i become reflective, a sentimental fool…and amidst the craziness i call life, i am grateful for all the good that is in it.

i’ve been going through poetry i have written…from as recently as the other day…to back over a decade ago
i’ve managed to get some of the old stuff out of my journals and onto the computer
i have an email account just for all my blogging/writing things.

and it’s amazing how one poem/writing can take you back…right back to where you were when you wrote it
how the feelings are exactly the same…sometimes you can get lost in that moment…or it’s like you’re on the outside looking in.
and sooooo i am reflective.
it’s totally gotta be that lite-barely any alcohol in it-low carb beer lol
(cause i am tough as nails on a good day)

but tonight i am mushy, happy and in love with every detail of my life.
damn beer.

and so my blog is taking advantage of me tonight and wants me to share the personal bits of me
and so i thought this poem was appropriate 🙂

hope your night was as awesome as mine.

Foolish Heart

Foolish heart

Why do you jump?

Why do you run circles, and make my brain dizzy

Foolish heart

How do you do it?

How do you make all reason and logic disappear

And turn me in to

 This

 A girl with no sense

A girl without walls

A girl who stands 11 stories high

Anticipating the leap…

Wanting to fall.

Deeply and madly and passionately

Fall

Lay down at your feet kind of crazy

Give you my all, my everything

Foolish heart

Give back my common sense

Seems you took it with you when you left

To pursue the untouchable

The unfathomable

Idea of love.

Such a fool you are

Stupid, stupid heart

Taking away everything I built

Everything I knew

My walls were stoic and strong

Unbreakable

Until you.

And now foolish heart

How do you make me fall.

Quite effortlessly and oh so quickly

Give me the desire to fall in love with

Someone

The very someone I should not.

what do you know

About love and adoration

Other than leaping full throttle

From 11 stories high

Head first

Without any sorrow for the girl

That’s left

In the aftermath.

Foolish heart

Falling in love

Without my permission

Turning my brain into mush

Making me smile like the fool you are

Making me want the very thing

I’ve told myself I should never have

Foolish heart.

My stupid, foolish heart.

thank you for yum

there was a big celebration last night kids 🙂

i took a special someone out for a special dinner…and brought with me my camera.  we celebrated a new beginning…a new chapter…to greater things a-comin’!!

i started off with….

vacation mode

it’s a little hard for my mind to wrap around vacation mode.

although, the night hawk in me seems to have no problem.

i was up until 4am this morning.  I stirred in bed this morning and struggled to get up.
I really didn’t need to wake up.
There was no work to go to, no dog to walk.  the cats were perfectly content lounging with me.
but i got up anyways.  sleeping in too long feels like a waste of day…why not waste it on the couch in my fat pants!
besides, i am a professional napper…and i have all the time in the world to do that today.

As i was sitting on the couch, with a purring cat on my lap….
the very last thing i wanted to do was move.  I argued with myself for what seemed forever and finally got off the couch (much to my cat’s dismay) and got changed and worked out.

I totally get how a lot of people have good intentions and yet give up on working out.  it’s so much easier to chill out and just be…

but…i am sooo happy that i did – like i always am after a work out.  It was good…i kicked some serious ass
and felt worlds better afterwards.

I threw myself in the shower…went grocery shopping….and now i am sitting here on my couch, waiting patiently for my awesome dinner to be ready (low carb of course)
I am drinking a low carb beer, and looking forward to the nap that’s gonna happen in the very near future.

with as much as i have on my mind….i am doing pretty well.  taking care of myself, eating as healthy as possible and trying to enjoy this time away from work – although work would be an awesome distraction if i have to be honest.

Today is a not so bad a day.

Let’s hope tonight, sleep finds me at a decent hour….i gotta be at the airport early in the morning!!!

Happy Monday kids.

dining out

i love going out for dinner.
just love it.
if i could afford to go out every single night and meet up with people over dinner
i would do it in a heart beat
sure…i would probably tire of it eventually…i do like cooking for people…but that’s not really my point.
 
i headed into the city last night for a dinner meet up.  I love taking the train into the city.  I bypass the congested highways during rush hour, get into the heart of the city in minutes…without the stress of traffic and crazy expensive parking.
 
there is something about going out for dinner.  especially in the summer.
sitting on the patio, enjoying the heat..a cold beer and great company.  it’s the ambiance i am especially attracted to in the city.
 
there’s also the crazies…like the homeless guy who asked me for a smoke…and when i said i didn’t have any got all crazy aggressive and was yelling “liar” at me…
or the dood who told me i shouldn’t dress so hot cause he was already burning up…or the dood who stared at me through my whole dinner.  like an uncomfortable stare…where he shoulda just invited himself to sit on my lap…cause really…it seemed like he wanted to be at our table lol
anyways.
 
i have pretty much mastered the art of low carb ordering while i am out for dinner.  when i first started this years ago it made me feel very uncomfortable asking for things to be changed to accomodate me.  i’ve realized no one really cares how you want your food…and now it’s just second nature to me.
 
we had to wait about an hour for our table but we got to hang out on the patio and have a drink and catch up.  i asked the bartender what low carb beer she had and she mentioned one i had never heard of before…made by a local brewery.  i asked her twice…cause i wanted to make sure…and she assured me that it was low carb. 
Once we got our table and our waiter came to take our drink order…i wanted another beer…and asked for that one…and the waiter told me that it was not low carb…at all.
Sooooo i more than likely consumed all my carb allowance in one beer…and then some.
oh well…it’s not like it was done on purpose…these are the risks you take when you are out and about and not at home where you are the one responsible for the things that enter your home for consumption.
 
a wonderful evening was had by all.  but i am tired today mamma.  two late nights in a row…it gets to this ol’ girl.
