Malapert

Hi Everyone!

What the heck? Let me break up the word:
Mal = bad or badly,
Apert = open, honest,
Put them both together you get “malapert” = a bold or impudent person.

In other words someone who is “open” or “honest” in a bad way.

Do you know anyone that is like that?
If you said no, then I think you better recheck your family, friends, neighbors, work place.

Still no, wake up! Smell the coffee! Smell the roses!
Come on now, recheck!! Recheck!!! I know you can do it!!!!
Oh My Gosh!! Am I being “malapert” in my writing today??

Have a great day! Hope

ME? Me? How could you say that? Says Dot with a little smirk on her face.

It was not me! Says Harry. Hmm! says the Captain Knight.

No way! Me and Humpty D. have been friends for years!!

Just because I’m “blue” doesn’t mean I did it says Mike. Captain Knight says it’s okay Mike, here my handkerchief wipe your blue tears away.

RDP: Intimate

Hi Everyone!

Today is Valentine’s day, Thursday February 14, 2019.

Do you and any of your friends have intimate conversations?

For Valentine’s day are you going with your partner to an intimate setting cocktails, dinner, and especially dessert?

Now remember an intimate place doesn’t have to be an expensive place. It’s whatever the two (2) of you want to do.

Maybe your favorite local restaurant, Burger King, McDonald’s,  Shangrila.

Shangrila could you imagine being there what a romantic place, view, atmosphere, people. That would be unbelievable!

Zia’s Trattoria, Edison Park, IL 
Fogo de Chao Brazilian SteakHouse, Rosemont, IL

Have a romantic day! Hope

What I Like?

png_kid-53108-094Hi Everyone! png_kid-53108-173

What I like;

  • Daisies. Most people may say roses, but to me they remind me of a wake
  • Fresh Air. Of course when you live in a city the air is not as fresh like forest air
  • Colorful items;
    • clothes
    • socks, don’t forget the crazy designs
    • furniture
    • sheets, pillow cases, blankets, 
    • front, dining, kitchen, bathrooms, etc, walls
  • Friends “You got to have friends” (song from Bette Midler) since blogging I have made new friends from all over the world.
  • Knitting I love using Multi-colored or Variegated
  • Creating cards – birthday, get well, holiday, etc. Why you ask when you can buy a card? Because it keeps my imagination going with designing for a specific person
  • Blogging working with multi-colored/variegated yarns
  • Learning new things like WordPress “Gutenberg” Yikes!!!! It kind of reminds me of the ancient printing press. 44880_guten_press_lg
  • Watching Ink Master, Marvel movies, Pirates of the Caribbean, Netflix shows, Gotham TV show, Flash. I guess you can say I like movies with action, unusual, scientific, mystery, fantasy, wonderment, and wow shows!
  • woman detectiveInvestigating or as my son would say noisy. I prefer to say curiosity.

Have a great day! betty boopHope

Hi Everyone!

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. How do you feel?

  • Do you feel like you can’t move fast?
  • jpg_heart-ready-for-battle
  • Do you feel like you are ready to rock n’ roll?
  • Do you feel like walking around the mall? Just walk, not shopping.
  • If you went to the mall, did you have to walk 3 miles from where you parked?See the source image
  • After walking around the mall, doing some window shopping, were you hungry?
  • Whatever you are going today, make sure you take advantage of everything going on around you. 
    • Smiling facesSee the source image
    • People laughing
    • Smells of delicious foods in the court
    • Meeting friends as you are walking around
    • Seeing the holidays through children eyes. Their expressions make you feel like a kid again.

Have a great day! vintage gardenHope

 

Posted in Blogging Blogger, Bonkers Away, National Teal Talk Day

Hello National Teal Talk Day!

Hi Everyone!

What is National Teal Talk Day? Teal the color? A dark bluish green to greenish blue. Small babbling ducks?

National Teal Talk Day is about: Over 249,000 women are diagnosed annually with ovarian cancer, worldwide. Gather your friends, wear teal for a day out together and talk. 

Join a group of co-workers for lunch. Men are welcome, also. They have mothers, wives, daughters and sisters at risk for ovarian cancer. They should have the Teal Talk, too! There is no standard screening for ovarian cancer. In absence of a test, awareness is best. In the hour it might take to have the Teal Talk during lunch, approximately 28 women would have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. 

Invite your closest friends, neighbors and sisters for drinks in the back yard. Wear your favorite teal and give the Teal Talk. Go for a walk with your mom and her friends. Even if it’s a short one it will be long enough for a Teal Talk. For more information go to – National Teal Talk Day Calendar site.

 HOW TO OBSERVE    Find out more information at Ovarcome.org and have the Teal Talk with the people in your lives.  Use #TealTalkDay to share on social media. It’s simple to get started. Ovarcome Founder Runsi Ayona Sen & Olympic Gym. Special note to bloggers out there – DON’T be afraid to talk to your love ones about this horrible disease. If you have to, take them by their hand and be there for them for tests, hospital, meeting with their doctors. Give them your support, it will make a world of difference. Have a great day! Hope

Posted in A La Carte, Blogging Blogger, Bonkers Away

Hello “A LA Carte”!

Hi everyone! veggies
Have you ever wondered what “A La Carte” means?
It took me awhile of the true meaning before the light bulb went on for me.
It’s not the way a food is cooked.
It’s not the way a food is served.
It’s not a specific menu of special foods.
See the source imageSome people don’t realize until they get the bill and go WOW at the total.
It’s the way items are priced individually. It’s not only the food it is also the drinks you are having.
So if you think you are getting a deal because the price of each item looks cheaper, in the long run your total bill could be higher than if you ordered a complete meal. 
Depending on the restaurant “A La Carte” raspberrymay work out better for some if you don’t want certain foods that come with a complete meal. Now if you can substitute what you don’t want with something you prefer than stick with the complete meal.
The main think to me is to enjoy your food with family and friends.See the source image
Have a great day! twin boy girlHope

What’s Happening?

Hi Everyone!

So what's happening with you lately?

What have I been up to? A little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Knit emailmade gloves that don't cover your fingers. AKA fingerless gloves.

Of course chatting with others to keep up to date on the world.

Searching, searching, searching. Yes I found one of my brain cells. Question is how many more do I have to find?
