SEX: DO YOU TALK ABOUT IT WITH FRIENDS?

I had a friend once who regaled me with all the raw details of her sex life on the regular.  She discussed orgasms, the size of her partner's 'package', and how a man made her feel.  I've read various genres of romance all my life, and even watched a porn movie on a dare, but I could never get used to her casual conversations about those sexual escapades.  I'm not a prude, but I was always embarrassed and never knew what in the heck to say. I mean, was I supposed to reciprocate with my own info? Should I have agreed with what she talked about?
Most of the time I just laughed, or tried to change the subject. A few times I even said, "Girl - you're crazy!" and walked away. (lol) Even worse, she got a kick out of my reaction. 

I'm the person who feels more comfy talking about your back pain, your kids, what you ate for dinner, or what you did on vacation. *heh*

Has this ever happened to you? How did you handle it?  Do you talk about sex with your friends?  Does this happen with just young people, or is everyone on board?



COUPONS
Some coupons are more difficult to get than others, particularly those for meat and veggies.  One way to handle that is to write or send an email raving about the product, or to sign up for newsletters.  If they sell it in your grocery store, Fresh Express is really good.  Sign up for their newsletter to get news in advance, as well as coupons you can use. http://www.freshexpress.com/

CHOOSING AN AUTHOR'S WORK & BACK IN THE DAY.


When I was a kid, the only things I read were romance and Mafia novels. In fact, the very first book I picked up was by Barbara Cartland, before moving on those thin Harlequin love stories. I know, I know.  One has nothing to do with the other, but somehow that's what I was into. (lol)

Fast forward a zillion years later, and I'm still a serious fan of romance/erotic romance with a good mix of motivational,  mystery, thrillers, and cookbooks thrown in.  Despite reading almost anything these days when I have the time, there are certain authors that I read consistently.



These are the people who cause me to go through withdrawal once I've finished a book, having to wait for a year or two before the next release.  There's no need to read a blurb or a review because I'm going to skate, drive, fly, crawl to the bookstore, or hit the send button with a blindfold on because I have to have those particular books.  

Different things attract me to a particular novelist, but the four biggies are authenticity, heart string pulling, (tears or laughter), suspense, or if I can learn something that's unique and thought-provoking.



What about you?  Why are you drawn to a specific writer's books?



BACK IN THE DAY
The other day at the grocery store, two really cool things happened.  I was given a bouquet of flowers FREE because I was laughing very loudly with two of the cashiers, (I'm sure he really wanted to me to just leave so everyone could get back to work-lol) and I saw someone in Bell Bottom Jeans.
The flowers were lovely,  but I was much more fascinated by those jeans that I used to wear waaay back in the day. I even had the nerve to wear them as Hip Huggers. *heh*
What else did I wear back then that I wouldn't dare be caught in now, even if you paid me a zillion dollars?  Hot Pants!

 Raise your hands if you remember any of these fashion trends from the 70's that are still hidden in your closet. (lol)



You may notice that Hot Pants from the70's, Daisy Dukes from the 80's and  Short Shorts from 2016 are strikingly similar!

CLOSET LUXURY & APPLE PIE DELICIOUSNESS

The other day, I was watching a program on television with a woman who had a three story closet, and it was magnificent!  But I wondered if most of us would want a closet that large or glamourous in our homes, and if so, what in the world would we store there?

These closets would be surely large enough for all my shoes and purses of course, but the rest of all that space could be dedicated to my massive TBR pile. (lol)  It would be so peaceful and relaxing to read a good book and to hide from the rest of the world with no phones or television.  But what about you?  Shoes or books in your dream closet?







APPLE PIE TOSTADA
This recipe is super simple to make, and you don't have to worry about pie dough or using a lot of your valuable time.  You can bake 2 6-Inch Tortillas in the oven at 375 degrees until toasted, or purchase the crunchy tostadas that come in a package from your local grocery store.


In a medium nonstick pot, combine 1 Tsp Cornstarch with 1/4 Cup Cold Water, stirring to dissolve. Mix in 1 1/2 cups peeled, chopped Apples, (Granny Smith or one of your faves) 1 Tbsp Sugar, 1/2 Tsp Lemon Juice, 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon, 1/8 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract, and a dash of Salt.  Cook on medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture is gooey, 10-12 minutes. Remove from heat.  Top each tostada with your apple mixture and serve enough for 2 people. Why not add a dollop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream to make this tasty treat even more fun!
HAPPY 34TH BIRTHDAY TO MY SON TODAY!
Ironically, he's now the same age that I used to say was really old when I was a kid - lol
