What's Uuuuup?

Hey everyone.

I meant to post yesterday but I got busy and by the time I thought about it, I had just hit shut down on my puter and I was ready to hit the hay so... Here I iz, now.

Ever have one of those days that is a total waste of makeup? I did, yesterday. Literally. I was putting my war paint on and the first try, it looked horrible. Partly my own fault... I am using a Roc retinol night treatment that can dry my skin and I have to exfoliate more often and I forgot and I have micro peelies and when I got my foundation on I looked like a zombie that was sloughing it's dead skin.

Not pretty, my friends. Not pretty. So, out came the makeup remover wipes and on went fresh moisturizer and I applied more foundation. And I do mean more. And once again, I looked as if Sabryna chewed my face up then barfed on it. So, out came the makeup remover wipes and the moisturizer. *sigh* What to do? I had to get my makeup on but I didn't have time to scrub and let my skin calm down before I had to be ready. Then I remembered, duh! Some stupid bitch forgot her primer. I smoothed some on, applied my foundation and much better. Not what I wanted but better.

Turns out I was out of scrub so I grabbed some while I was out. I am going to be going through a lot of it, this Winter. the air is dry, dry, dry and the cooler it gets, the drier my skin gets. The humidity is so low, right now and it is windy, too. So, it's going to get worse before it gets better. I think I need a vat of jojoba oil that I can just lower myself into until Spring. lol

Speaking of cooler. It might snow, tonight or in the morning. What the fuuuuu???? Noooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do. Not. Want! Rain, fine. Snow? Nuh-Uh! No thank you! Snow sucks. And I have stuff to do this weekend so it had better not stick around. It isn't supposed to. If it does fall, we are only supposed to get an inch or so and it will be in the upper forties y tomorrow afternoon so, no worries.

William is watching Grapes of Wrath, again. Steinbeck bores the snot out of me. On the screen or the page. Doesn't make any difference. I hear his name and my eyes glaze over and my brain shuts down. Same with Shakespeare. Bleargh!

I got another dish towel knitted and I am hot into dish cloths, now. It's nice to have a drawer full of them, again.

Let's see... Oh. I busted open and seeded the first big, beautiful pomegranate of the season, tonight. We had a smaller one the other day but it was so sour that it was inedible. This one is scrumptious. Want more.

I guess that is about all I have to natter about, for right now.

Goodnight. :D


  1. I just found your Blog and this was the first read. I liked it. I will keep reading.

  2. What moisturizer do you use?
    My skin gets super dry (in addition to the night stuff I use that already dries my skin)

  3. I read Grapes of Wrath years ago. I is a very strange story. Didn't care for it at all. Maybe because my relatives lived in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl.

  4. Hi Becki, I am so glad that you are here. Thank you for reading. :D

  5. Banded Cupcake, I am using Roc Retinol Correxion eye cream and the night cream (in the skinny, tallish tube). For moisturizer, Neutrogena Light Night Cream. But I think that I am going to change that... I am constantly tweaking my products to get something that makes me happy, happy.

    It's hell on a stick, getting old. lemme tell ya. But it is better than the alternative! lol

  6. SM, Grapes of Wrath... Yipes! I tried, really tried to read it and Fail! lol Some of my family is from the Oklahoma area, too. :D
