Big 5-0 in January 2019

Yes! I will be celebrating my 50th voyage around the sun in 2019.

Notice the euphemism for turning 50 years old!

LOL!

No, seriously, I’m good with it…despite coming to the realization that I have already, very likely,  lived more than half my lifetime.

In other words, I have more years behind me than ahead of me.

Ah…but then there’s the case of my Grandmother, Annie Maude, who lived to be 100 years old…maybe I inherited her longevity!

You remember my Grandmother don’t you?

If not, you can meet her here where she shares fashion, beauty and make up tips.

I digress!

Anyway, one of my best friends, Sandra, and I have decided that we are going to celebrate being 50 for the ENTIRE year!  Our goal is to do many of the things that we’ve always wanted to do.

You know, all the things that we had no “time” to do…

All the things we had no courage to do…

All the things we had no money to do…

All the freakin’ THINGS!

Please believe that I will share all of those adventures here on seekthebestblog.

Frankly, I’m strangely encouraged, and at this point, I feel that the sky is the limit!

Chile, I’ve been thinking about taking LadyG to a burlesque stage near you LOL!

Would you come see me if I did?

Can you imagine sassy Lady G on stage in her skivvies talking cold hard trash?

Why not?

Check it out, I’ve cleaned up my diet and adopted a fitness routine that works for me, and to that end, I’ve dropped some pounds.

Back to burlesque…

I’m not afraid to take every square inch of this fine brown frame on stage and have a ball!

Hey! I’m turning 50 and next year I’m going to travel and really live this last portion of my life!

Why the hell NOT? With a spirit guide like George Harrison I can do ANYTHING! LOL!

Thanksgiving Week 2018 with LadyG

IMG_1952

Hi Guys!

I hate I missed you on Thanksgiving, but I pray that all went well, and you are blessed and content! 💋

Please feel free to drop by comments to let me know how you are doing.  I really do look forward to that.

And so…I thought about it and decided that it was about time I did a good emptying of the old iphone.

I hope you don’t mind 🙂

Hell, it don’t really matter cuz imma do it anyway! LOL!!!

Anywhats, here are some shots from this past week.

Warning…if you are dieting, there is some food porn…but there are also some meal options to get you back on the healthy side of things.

You can thank my dear son for that.

As an aside, I did enjoy a candlelit meal with someone special which consisted of  Dover Sole with Fingerling Potatoes and Haricot Verts…

or…Green beans for us country folk!

LOL!

There was also a glass of Prosecco and dessert involved.

Oooh chile! Let me hush….sorry…no pictures! LOL!

With that…Let’s go!

Halloween 2018 Final Shenanigans with Pictures!

IMG_1746
LadyG as Queen of Earth! She looks a bit miffed 🙂 LOL!

(Excuse any typos, we’re in the thick of it!)

So, now that we have settled on the fact that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, it seems most appropriate to share some scenes from my 2018 Halloween shenanigans.

Now…

Let’s start with a bit of charity.

Earlier today, I spent this afternoon giving candy to kids at the local children’s hospital.  It really was very humbling—it reminded me to appreciate the health and wholeness of my own children.

If you ever get the opportunity to do something like that please do. Thanksgiving and Christmas are coming and the kids are always in need of good cheer.

Naturally, I could not take any pictures for privacy reasons.

And so….

After that, I came home, ordered Pizza, pulled out the six (6) carmel-nut candy apples that I got from Kroger for…..wait for it….$2.00–that’s right, I said TWO DOLLARS.

Anyway, I filled a cat-faced “cauldron” with candy for trick or treaters.

Of course, I baked some cookies; that’s a given!

Best believe, my house is a freaking mess; but we are having a ball!  BTW, my Dad is here!  He never misses Halloween at my house!

Next on the agenda was to cue up Youtube to watch an old cheesy ABC Halloween movie from 1985 called “The Midnight Hour.”  I love that movie! How many of you remember that one? if you do, please hit me up in comments because most people have never heard of it but I love it!  1985….the good old days!  Here is the link

After that, we’ll watch:

Fat Albert’s Halloween Special

Garfield Halloween

It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!

and finally, Ichabod Crane (Disney’s Legend of Sleepy Hollow)

And we EAT!!!!!

And so it goes…every year on Halloween!

Enjoy the scenes!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

LadyG Halloween Shenanigans on Video!

Because I NEVER miss an opportunity to embarrass the living HELL out of my children, I give you LadyG critiquing local Halloween decorations while driving with loud kiddie Halloween music blasting in the background.

Contrary to popular belief, the alluring LadyG can be terribly goofy….as evidenced by this video!

Now…

If you listen carefully you will hear my dear Lady J pleading with me to STOP MOM! STOP!!!

Ah…but I don’t listen and I don’t stop because I can’t STOP!

And, BTW, you can definitely hear my grating informal, downright country Southern accent throughout the whole she-bang!

I save my dulcet tones for company.

LOL!!!

***Warning, there is ONE reflexive expletive near the end of the video when a truck driving nemesis foils my plan to immediately stop to take pictures of one of the houses that had a really great layout—– so I humbly ask for your forgiveness.

Anyway…..here goes!  I hope you enjoy!

Gregory Morning

sundial-2586531_1920

Alternative Title:  Strangers who unknowingly have a very important function in our lives.

With the “alternate title” in mind, I give you Gregory Morning!

NOT his real name, because I do NOT, in fact, know him, and probably never will!

But that’s neither here nor there.

Follow me now…

Lady J and I get up every morning at half-past the rooster’s crow in order to get to school in a timely manner.

Mind you, we are never at risk of being officially late.

However, I’ve found that if we leave after a particular point in time I’ll be stuck in traffic hell once I drop her off.

So, before the sun rises, I gently rouse Lady J—and subsequently keep her on task so that I can leave in time enough to avoid the snarl that I so dearly abhor.

Now, after Lady J has wiped the sleep from her eyes, eaten breakfast, taken a shower, brushed her teeth, gotten dressed, and packed up her grip, we’re off to the races!

Enter Gregory Morning.

A lanky uniformed fellow who walks the short distance from his house to the school that Lady J attends.

By the way, Lady J said he looks like a “Gregory.”

And so it is written into “law” that he shall always be known as Gregory 🙂

I gave him the last name “Morning” because that’s the only time of day that we see him.

Anyway…

Gregory, our dear friend that we do NOT know, functions as my unofficial timekeeper of sorts.

If Gregory is at the top of the hill; I’m doing good.

No traffic worries 🙂

If Gregory has made it to the traffic light, I am a bit behind.

Some traffic…Eh…it’s tolerable 😏

But…

God forbid, if Gregory is standing at the school’s entrance, I’m SCREWED 😱

It’s traffic all the way to more traffic and then some!

I simply cannot with all that!!!

And so…

If Gregory is standing at the school door, then I immediately know to go park somewhere until the madness dies down.

Hey, it gives me time to read my e-mails, WordPress notifications and Instagram messages.

Problem solved!

Long live Gregory!

Do you have a “Gregory Morning” in your life?  Meet me in comments and tell me all about it!

Love and light to you,

LadyG 💋 💋
