I'm A Very Lucky Woman

Hello lovely people!

Oh my stars
where I have I been all week?
There's so much to catch you up on
so let's get started.

I was as busy as a beaver...
errrr....
muskrat this week!

A short business trip,
catch up at work,
a bunch of running around
with errands to attend to, etc.

We still don't have spring
but we've had some warm weather
with more this weekend.

Hopefully it's not too far behind...

I think it will still be awhile
until there are
leaves on the trees though.

I discovered that I
DO NOT
enjoy the taste of Starfruit!
But it sure is pretty....

I learned that eating too much pineapple
will cause me to get sores in my mouth.
But oh it is so good...

I am on day number 4 of not sleeping very well.
I am running on about
3 - 4 hours of sleep per night.

How's a girl supposed to keep up
with her beauty sleep?

And...
big announcement...
I am no longer in love with Colin Firth!

He just doesn't do 'it' for me anymore.

Though I am sure, I will still think fondly of him
when I watch him as Mark Darcy
in Bridgette Jones' Diary.

My new "Boy Toy"
(or at least that's what Wayne refers to him as)
is Matt Damon.

OK Wayne, Matt's 40 years old.
I'm only 46...
I don't exactly think that makes me a 'cougar'.

And yes,
he has a lovely wife,
and four beautiful daughters
but a girl can dream can't she?

Not to worry Stanley
you will always be my
main man
my true love
number one in my heart...

After all...
how many husbands would vacuum
while their wife relaxes with a glass of wine?
(Or is out of town on a business trip for a couple of days this week!)

I may be a dreamer...
but I'm not stupid!

Am I right ladies???

And he's a philanthropist and he's intelligent. And he's not afraid to tell it like it is. And years ago, I never thought I'd put this word in the same sentence as Matt Damon: Yummy. Time changes everything.

Kea said...

I've always thought Matt Damon was great eye candy. And no, he's definitely not too young for you.

Nice shot of hubby vacuuming while you put your feet up. I can see why you kept him. LOL.

Have a great, Spring-warm weekend!

Brian said...

You were doing great until that vacuum thing came out, those evil machines scare us! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

The Monkeys said...

I adore the photo of you with your wine!

I hope Spring comes soon to you!

Christine said...

I can always count on coming here to cheer me up. I think Stanley even has a smile on his face, you ARE a lucky girl, Matt should be jealous.

It's me said...

Very nice to sit and watch them do the housework...even better with a glass of wine.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Loved the post, Catherine! Sorry you haven't been sleeping well. I don't care for starfruit either, but it's pretty on as a garnish. MMMM, pinapple. YUM! You may not be sleeping, but it sounds like you are eating healthy. WTG!

Luiza said...

Hahahaha, I can´t belive it...I had a "crush" on Matt Damon a couple of weeks ago, now I let him go...
So now , I have no one...Well, my husband of course ;).

You seem to have been buisy, I hope it calms down soon.

Spring is on it´s way, I´m sure =).

Have a lovely sunday.

Kat_RN said...

And, don't forget, he has a sense of humor! Yes, you are a smart lady. Me too, and mine cooks.
Fun post.

Carole said...

lovely photos..hee hee youve got it right girl ! hubby with the vac...better send him over here give my hubby some lessons :)

HubbleSpacePaws said...

ROFL!! Great shot of Stanley and you... having it framed, are you?
;-)

Yep, Matt Damon is a piece of yummm for many reasons! Sadly, my main fantasy guy is with us no more... I fell in love with Patrick McGoohan when I was 8 years old (Disney's "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" and "Three Lives of Thomasina." Forget that he was 30 years older than me and happily married... HE WAS SUPPOSED TO WAIT FOR ME TO GROW UP! Ha!

Thanks to the miracle of celluloid, he will always be "Secret Agent" (aka, Danger Man, in the UK) and "The Prisoner" yummy.

oh my, i love matt damon too...
love love love

Snappy Di said...

Fruits that are highly acidic do that to the inside of my mouth too. Wish I could eat it every day but no can do. I've never had a star fruit before.

Splendid Little Stars said...

I, too, have a vacuuming husband!
sorry about the lack of sleep. That happens to me sometimes. I'm tired, but can't sleep. :(
enjoying your photos as always!

Stacey Dawn said...

Oh I've missed your posts...
Still chucklin' at the last photo. You are definitely one BLESSED woman!

Jaime said...

Didn't I warn you once about the starfruit? lol!

It looks completely magical...but tastes just like cardboard.

Matt Damon is a honey...I'm with you on that one.
