Giving Thanks

You know when there isn’t a lot going on I feel like I have nothing to contribute and feel bad for you all reading me. But ya know what? I’m going to talk at ya anyway. Alright?

I’m over my final tally from last year for Nanowrimo with 5 days left to go. I think I could very well do another 10k if I focus well. That would make me well over 40K! That would rock. I’m hoping to go sit in Starbucks or something tomorrow to get more writing done. I’ve been doing alright with topic ideas but I could always use a few more. So if you have some, fire them my way in the next couple days, will ya?

The exercise is going alright I guess. I’m doing it, so that’s all I care about. I’m still exhausted after 30 mins. I’m really hoping that I’ll get an energy boost from exercise, especially if I have a feeling Master will increase the duration any day now. No weight loss yet, but my diet has to change more (which will happen after Thanksgiving). I’ve been doing low carb without a real plan, so I think I’m going to pick up South Beach as my plan again. It was easy to follow and required no carb counting, calorie counting or anything. If it was on the approved food list, I could eat it (in measured portions).

I found a French bread recipe that I’m going to try out tonight/tomorrow. If it turns out I think it will be my go to bread because it doesn’t have rice flour in it (too grainy) and doesn’t require a rise at all! I do want to invest in a French Loaf pan if it does work out. It will make it easier. For now I’ll be improvising with foil rolls to create a couche.

I’m making a feast fit for at least 6 people for Thanksgiving even though it will only be Master and I. I love leftovers from turkey feast. Hopefully froggyKM does too because she’ll be eating some when she’s here this weekend. Hehe. So far the plan is:

Get up early and make the bread – if the loaf tonight/tomorrow turns out that’s the recipe I’ll use. Make the deviled eggs. Prep the carrots for roasting, peel the potatoes, take the turkey out of the brine and let it dry. Prep the corn casserole, make the mushroom white sauce for green bean casserole and the fried onions to go on top.  Then figure out if I can make a GF pie crust with all the flours I have (cause I might opt not to make a pie) and if I do I’m making chocolate cream pie.

Somewhere in there I’ll watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

How’s your holiday preparations going?


Censoring Myself

I’m dealing with some emotions related to the poly relationship that I’m in with Master and froggyKM but also unable to talk about it here in open forum because she reads my blog. It’s a form of forced censorship that I’m not liking but I think it is necessary.

I am of course talking to Master about it and she’ll eventually hear about it when I’m ready. I know how she has a tendency to read things incorrectly so talking about my feelings here could lead to something I’m not interested in. Confusion.

That’s it folks. I’ll likely write about it in private but I haven’t got anything else to share right now. Sorry.


Feel Good, Taste Good

I’m all better now. Just slight dizziness when I move too fast. I’m not sure what made me sick and all my self-research pointed to either a flu of some sort or an imbalance in my thyroid. Seeing as I am hypothyroid I am leaning to that. It explains the fatigue, dizziness, lethargy and heavy-headed feelings.

Talked with Master about a concern I was having with our dynamic and he’s done what he can to help improve that. I’m also confident that things will get better and I feel good about it. It’s not something I am willing to talk about here, but since Master and I communicate very well I have no doubts that things will get better.

He made mention that our sex life is lacking, and I think it might be related to the concern I had so we’ll see if things change for the better with that too.  Oh and talking about sex, we have had some lovely fucking tonight/today. He commented that I am quite the dirty talker, which I am aware of, but what really turns him on is when I let myself go in the rapture of sex and just say all sorts of things. I don’t even remember what I say half the time but it must do the trick because Master always says it’s fantastic and dirty.

I’ve also realized that while he’s rough with me at the start and I fight it because it’s so intense I usually surrender and get into it with gyrating and making verbal sounds that drive us both wild. And I guess the reason I’m thinking about all this is because I never thought I was that much of a slut. Heh, guess I’m living up to the subtitle of my blog!

Nanowrimo is going well. My wrist hurts today so I didn’t do my word goal today. I’m not far behind and I’m right on target if I did the nano the usual way. As of today I have just over 16K words. My personal goal is 40K. I’m pretty proud of where I am so far. I’m having issues coming up with topics for posts – or rather I have the topics, but the words to put them on paper are lacking.

On to housecare I am feeling the desire to really get into the cleaning and domestic duties. I’ve not been keeping up on it recently. Tomorrow is a new day. I’m also slowly working on meal plans that I can just pull out and use instead of having to come up with new ones each time I go shopping. I think that will really save us money in the long run because we’ll have a set number of recipes to fall on. After all, most families don’t experiment every week and stick with what they know tastes good.

I got what I think was a good deal today. Around this time of year every year the local stores sell hams and turkeys, right? Well I used a coupon to buy a 6 lb ham and get a 14 lb turkey free. Amazing to me. I can get 5 meals out of the ham alone. The turkey I am sure at least that, starting with Thanksgiving. I’m thrilled.

That’s it for now.


Just a Quickie

I just wanted to let you know I’m starting the 2nd week of Nanowrimo and am about 15K words in. I’ve been sick this week with a flu of some sort which has hurt my word goals but I’ve been holding on strong.

Master is really sweet taking care of me and making sure I have everything I might need while ill but sleep really has been the healer.

Went to see Thor 2 last night. Definitely awesome, but if you haven’t seen Thor and The Avengers movies first you will be lost in the storyline. Just saying.
