It's so cold. I think we went straight to winter from summer and just skipped autumn.

It's time to start drinking the hot cider. I love it be Carson hates it. I also love to drink beef broth this time of year too.

some more unsolicited advice

For the ladies on my flist who are getting married.

Make it a point to talk to your fiance's mother to find out what dishes of hers he particularly loves. Ask her for her recipes and even offer to help her fix them sometime. This does two things.

1. It lets you know what foods you can fix and how you can fix them to make him happy once you are married.

2. It will help you get in good with you soon to be mother-in-law which is something you will find invaluable once you are married. It always helps to have her think of you not just as a daughter-in-law but also as a daughter.

Fortunately, I have a good relationship with Carson's mother. Early on, she shared her fried chicken recipe with me and her chicken and dumplings recipe. I know I can count on either to make the hubby happy.

Had a great week at the beach. We ate lots of great seafood, sun, sand, suds and sex. I wish we could have stayed another week.

Carson told me something I thought was hilarious. There were two young teen boys at our motel. Apparently both had the hots for me. Carson it was so obvious that one of them would stare at me anytime I was by the pool. He said once or twice it was so obvious the kid had an erection and couldn't get out of the pool with it. Nice to know I've still got it. LOL!!!!

New season of Survivor began tonight. Not wanting to spoil it for any of you who may have dvr'd it, I will just say I'm happy to see the person voted out go.

Work has been horrible this week. Corporate has people in and they are super critical of almost everything we do. I honestly worry that my boss is about to quit. I'd hate to see that happen. She has taught me so much that I don't think I could work for anyone else.

If you haven't tried the pretzel crust pizza from Little Caesar's. I highly recommend it. We had one for dinner this evening and it was delicious.

Well, after today, I'm definitely not horny.

I'm enjoying the show Utopia. I think it brings out the idea that what is utopia for one person may not be utopia for anyone else.

It's the last weekend of summer. It's been a nice summer but I think I'm ready for autumn.

I have a pot of soup beans going in the slow cooker. Should be done by dinnertime. Now I just have to hope I can make a decent skillet of cornbread.

Carson and I had nice sex this morning. I must have worn him out because after we cleaned up, he went back to bed and went sound asleep. I took a cup of coffee and went to the front porch. I love sitting out there listening to the birds, laughing at the squirrels and drinking my coffee.

advice to those who are engaged

If you haven't already, I strongly recommend the two of you sleep together for a night or two in the bed you intend on sharing after you get married. I'm not saying you should have sex. That is entirely up to you but I do think you need to find out if you are comfortable and can sleep well. After you marry, you are going to be spending at least one-third of your life in that bed. You have to have a good night's rest if you are going to function. You can, and most likely will, have sex most anywhere in your house or apartment but you will be sleeping in your bed.

The first major purchase Carson and I made was a new bed and bedding. We found that my old bedding was ok for sex but we were not sleeping well at all. Both of us were going to work like zombies each day so about a month after we married, we bought a new (larger) bed and bedding.
