February 13 – A Naughty Throwback Thursday

This is from a hike Adam and I took last winter, when all the hiking craziness to get ready for the Grand Canyon took hold. It was actually our first time at this new state park, a park that has become a staple in our hiking rounds. That day was cold and muddy, and there was no one on the trail, so, what the heck, I decided to get a flash in. A completely unnecessary one, as it didn’t fulfill any of the Scavenger Hunt locations! But what fun’s a hike if a girl can’t get a little naughty? See the rest of my 2020 February images here. See images from years past here. Check out the rest of the participating bloggers in this year’s February Photofest by kissing the lips below!

February 12 – Naughty Mermaid

Yep, I know I missed yesterday. It was planned-not-planned: I had a surgical procedure scheduled to deal with another one of my skin cancer spots, and knew I would probably not be feeling up to posting anything, but I forgot to schedule one ahead of time, as I had originally intended. I was curled up in bed trying to ignore the pain of having my face carved on when I remembered that I had forgotten it. Posting a sexy image wasn’t real high on my list of priorities at that moment. Today was spent at home crocheting and recuperating. I’m still not feeling the “naughty” part of my photo theme, what with a big sexy bandage on my forehead and a headache the size of Baltimore, but I can’t sleep yet, so here I am. And it gives me the opportunity to give ya’ll a PSA: WEAR SUNSCREEN. Don’t beRead more …

February 6 – Not So Naughty

Getting ready for work, I snapped this picture just because I like these regular ole soft cotton panties. I wanted a “nice” picture. I ended up really liking it, not “in spite of” my extra curves, or that soft roll of flesh, or my rounded ass, but because of them. As we all do, my body is changing all the time, and as a former (maybe too) skinny person, sometimes it’s hard to accept and love myself as I am. Today it wasn’t so hard. Viva la curves!

400!

I have had every intention of adding a link to this week’s Wicked Wednesday to help celebrate its 400th(!) week in existence. Four-zero-zero – that’s not a typo! Congrats to Marie over at rebelsnotes.com for running such a popular, fun, interesting, sexy and oftentimes thought-provoking meme. I have not participated in it (especially recently) as I ought or would like, but then I haven’t been writing here at all as often as I ought/would like. Every week I start out saying, “I’m going to write more…” but then life happens, as it will, and writing doesn’t get done. It almost happened this week with Wicked Wednesday. Here it is Wednesday afternoon, and I am at work, writing this when I’m supposed to be doing worky things because I have not had a free minute to write other than this. I had several topics in mind when I saw the promptRead more …

Don’t Do This

My poor dog ate a square of “special” chocolate meant to be a sleep-aid for me. It was not the chocolate that hurt him (thank goodness, chocolate can be deadly for dogs) but the “secret ingredient.” Apparently doggo is as susceptible (in a bad way) to the stuff as I am (can’t consume it, in any format. I end up in a corner, staring out at a world made threatening and unfriendly, my heart pounding, anxiety raking its claws up and down me. Kind of like it is doing now, without the substance, as I watch my poor dog stumble about, confused and frightened.) His vet assures me that the minute amount he consumed, while disorienting and possibly misery-inducing for him, won’t kill him – but he was definitely traumatized and I feel horrible. I am also awake at 1:30 a.m. when I should be sleeping. He’s sleeping soundly atRead more …

The Twelve Tasks of Kinkmas – Task 7; a Mea Culpa

Of course I couldn’t get through the entire twelve days of tasks without missing a day. Or two. Ok, so I had a fairly good reason. Yesterday was moving day, and the day before that was spent packing up at the old house and getting ready to move! It momentous New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day, for sure. Still I have to take responsibility (and punishment) for not planning ahead enough to pre-schedule posts on these two days. I knew that I’d be too crazy busy all day and night to get them done, but time and energy just plain got away from me. And I actually did have time last night, after the movers and Adam, the daughter and various friends had gone home, after pizza and beer, and after V had put together my bed, to post the one task that I had finished in advance of the move,Read more …

The Twelve Tasks of Kinkmas – Task 6

Task 6 – Describe what a cooter is and list at least 5 uses for it. Post a pic. Day 6 and I almost let the day/night get away with me without completing this task! The damn thing is that I could have written this at work – I had literally ZERO things to do and was just marking time until “go home” time. (I hate days like that.) BUT, I didn’t think about this task, because I had so many other things going on. Moving day is Wednesday and I have packing and coordinating to do. I just got done with dog sitting and am finally home again, but my routine is destroyed, all my things are in suitcases or boxes or god knows where, as is the rest of my house. I do very poorly when everything is unorganized and in disarray. I’m trying to keep it togetherRead more …

The Twelve Tasks of Kinkmas – Task 4

Task 4: Box yourself up naked for Boxing Day I know, I know, I missed the actual Boxing Day, which is, apparently, a holiday celebrated in the U.K. and in certain other countries that used to be part of the British Empire, such as Canada. I didn’t realize it was the day after Christmas until yesterday, when I asked The Photographer if he’d mind taking a photo of me naked, in a box, and then had to look up what “Boxing Day” meant.  Soooo…a little late. But better late than never, eh?? Some other exciting things that happened: I got the keys to my new house and I moved my first box in! I am a new home owner! I can’t believe it, to be honest. I had never wanted to be tied down to one place before, to a house, to a mortgage. And, maybe, I’ll regret it ifRead more …
