Getting my feet wet.

Ten Things You Shouldn't Say on a Date.

1. You're wearing that?

2. Something smells funny.

3. Where's the Tylenol?

4. And to think, I first wanted to date your brother.

5. I have a confession to make…

6. My dad has a suit just like that.

7. That man is hot. Look at him.

8. My ex, may he rot in hell forever…

9. You're going to order that? Seriously?

10. You're how old?”

― Gena Showalter, Animal Instincts

A friend of a friend asked me out for coffee. When I consider the fact that I haven't dated in over 30 years I get a bit shaky!  Dating at 50 something is going to be a lot different than 20 something. I am no longer that tall skinny girl with the long blonde hair. I don't even remember what my natural hair color looks like! Plus there is the fun of wrinkles and age spots and balding and that's just the men!  I was discussing all of this with my cousin and she and I agree, looking around at men our age it seems like they are all OLD and of course we are not!  Wish me luck. I think it's gonna be a bumpy ride!

Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse.

Back from vacation

I had a wonderful time in Seattle visiting Lola and Nolan and their parents. Lola is a very funny child. She talks and sings from the time her feet hit the floor in the morning until she passes out at night. Seriously, NON-STOP!  Nolan on the other hand is a little more quiet but you can see his brain working all day.  We would get up before everyone else and have breakfast and chat about zombies and Christmas and Skylanders.   I loved it.

David and I went to the Chihuly Glass Garden and Exhibit. It was totally worth the $20.  I posted pictures on my Facebook page. We had lunch at Ivar's, a famous fish place in downtown Seattle and then topped off our day with Krispy Kreme donuts. Ahhh.  It was really nice to spend the day with my baby brother.

Stefanie and I did a bit of shopping and got pedicures. She is getting to know her way around just like a native so this trip we were able to head out a bit farther for our excursions. All in all a fun trip. I can't wait to go back next summer.

In other news, a man from my neighborhood asked me out for coffee! First time in quite a few years that someone asked me out. I said no, but still....
