I am not a complicated person.
I love my kids, my friends, my home.
I have had my ups and downs.
I have been blessed.

Simple things make me happy.

Yesterday I watched a vintage horse race
arcade game operate
with mexican jumping beans.
I squealed out loud and scared Larry, the guy
I was working with.
He laughed out loud, and said that "tickled you huh?"
I said oh yes, and promptly played it again! 

I ran into two old friends, a married couple,
 at the bank yesterday.
Our kids used to play together, and the Mom and I
volunteered at the kids elementary school together
for 5 years. They are such a lovely couple and we 
played catch up in the parking lot of the bank.
It made me so happy to see them again.

My friend Tanya took some of my leftovers from
 the garage sale and put them in her etsy shop
 to try and sell for me. Now how sweet is that?!

My SIL, the one who wears the weird hats from class?
She brought over to my work three stuffed bags of clothes
for me. She is now a skinny minny and gifted me 
some new duds. Since I have not bought any in years!
 Again..How sweet is that?!!!

But what has me really excited?
I slept for 11 hours last night!
In two sections, but who cares? ELEVEN hours...

and then
there is the ultimate
simple pleasure that begins
for me this Sunday.

Roomie will be with his family for a week,
so I can walk around with ta-tas a floppin'.
You just have no idea how
deliriously happy this makes me.
What - you expect a picture?

Now, I have me some large,
unfortunately pendulous, pair of 
ta-tas and they like to swing free 
and unencumbered.
So imagine tube socks with a tennis ball in the toe. 

OK? Happy now?

So watch out world.
I am ready for the weekend
and the ta-tas are free falling...

Happy weekend all!


Blondie's Journal said... are too funny! But glad roomie is gone so you can be "free".

Don't you just love the simple pleasures in life? And it looks like yours have added up. Best of all, you realize it all and appreciate it. Yay!

Have a great, swinging weekend!


Terra said...

Oh you are too CUTE, to celebrate your week of aloneness in this way!
Your SIL's hat is wild and I can see you are having fun. And bags of free clothes, you have great friends and family.

I'm with you...let 'em hang out! I hate bras...when I come home from going out there are two things that come off as soon as and the devil invented device called a bra! Of course Don didn't mind and Baron is clueless...YAY!

You are a scream!!! It sounds like a week of heaven for sure Z!!!

Love you bunches...

MEM said...

Love your posts----really good mind visuals! also enjoyed the "cozy tent?" pix. It really
Oops like a place to let your hair down, among other things....

Herballistic Garden said...

That was not what I expected Ta-ta's to be at all! Too funny! Hahaha!
xo wendy

Carole said...

Ok you have lost your mind:) but you are funny! Ok now I have a visual I can't get out of my mind....thanks a lot.


Jane said...

You make me laugh!! But I have to agree...nothing better than laying around the house in my comfy clothes.....completely unencumbered!! I need one of those 11 hr. nights of sleep!

Jillayne said...

Beaver tails. That's what we called them when we were young and stupid and didn't know it would happen to us.... the folly of youth...
I hope you have yourself and wonderful week, full of those kind of freedoms!

wendy said...

The visual of the tube sock and tennis ball had me laughing right out loud.
How funny.

No I am lucky in that I live in the country, and it's just me and hubby at home.
So my ta-ta's are always "free-falling". They only see a bra if we Go Out.

Faded Charm said...

I hope you've been enjoying the floppin', my friend:-) We've had a relaxing weekend around here so far and it seems like it's been a while since that has happened. I even got up(a very long) post this evening:-0


Amber said...

OMG! I'm laughing out loud and my daughter thinks I'm nuts. :) I hope you're having a flopping good time enjoying your peace for the weekend. :)
xo, Amber

Reminds me os a song we sang as kids...sung to the tune of "Do you ears hang low"... ahem....

Do your boobs hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie em in a knot?
Can you tie in a bow?
Can you throw em over your shoulder?
Like a Continental soldier?
Do your boobs hang low?

joanne said...

Oh my gawd you are too danm funny! Tube socks and tennis balls, you know, all those years I was looking for something to stuff in my bra I never thought of using socks or tennis balls...oh well. Enjoy the freedom. I happen to be one of those girls whose girls don't need much support so they don't need to be set free...

Kathy said...

Oh yes, simple pleasures - the first thing I do when I get home at night is let the girls roam free. Having possibly survived BC I have one a big girl and a little tard girl who is oblivious to temperature changes, which the The Husband finds quite hillarious. Be free girsl, be free...!!!!

Lana said...

Just adding to the comments of how funny you are, Z!! I love reading your notes on here...kindred spirits...where life takes us...talks with old friends in parking lots...boobs needing their free-fall...relaxing with the simple pleasures of a long sleep and a quiet day. Are we more alike in the crayon box than we can even imagine? Our colors may fade from bright to dim, but our hearts are still gentle and kind. Hurray for mature women!!!!

A Cottage Muse said...

Just when I think you've made me laugh out loud I laugh a little louder!! Hope the week goes by slow for you!!

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

Just make certain the curtains are closed Z... you wouldn't want those tatas appearing on Youtube posted by a passerby!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Dear Z,
It's always lovely to catch up with old friends even if it is in the car park !!
Friends are so important, aren't they ? ....and when they do a nice little thing for you, it really warms your heart, doesn't it ?
I love sleeping and I'm lucky that I don't have a problem with it. Our daughter can get on a plane in the UK, fall asleep and wake up in Australia !!! It must be in the genes !!
....... and, I guess that everything falling South happens to us all eventually ! I, too, have a mental picture of you, skipping around in your birthday suit, enjoying your freedom. Let it all hang out, that's what I say !! XXXX

Anna said...

Good Morning, You are funny, I just love the Ta's Ta's are free falling. About 3 yrs ago my Ta's Ta's were free falling big big time. I had them fixed. But I definitely know that feeling. I enjoy your blog.(((Hugs)))

Cindy said...

hahahahahaha You kill me....I never know what you are going to say...I went from a 34b to a 30 long....

Jill said...

Good Gravy you are a goof ball!!! I hope roomie doesn't read your blog or he'll come back saying to himself, "no visual! no visual!" If you see his eyes averting your chest you'll know he read your blog!! I'm am happy you are enjoying some freedom!!!

juNxtaposition said...

you are just too funny !! enjoy the peace !!

Theresa said...

GAAAAAAAAA! YOU ARE HILARIOUS! I want to write more, am happy for all of the wonderful things that happened to you, and for you but all I can think of now is tennis balls and tube socks as tatas!
HILARIOUS!!! thanks for the grins!

Debbie said...

Oh how I understand the socks with rocks in them! So glad you get some time alone.
Enjoy yourself!!

TheCrankyCrow said...

I love you so Z! This post, though, should have come with a snort warning. Now I have to clean up my morning coffee from my computer. ;o) Hope you - and the gals - enjoyed the frolic.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Kit said...

We should form a Ta Ta's club. Mine too have long succumbed to gravity and I must say wearing no bra most of the day is heavenly! I buy huge plaid shirts so you really can't tell unless I run....LOL Kit
