On this, my fifitieth birthday, I have ten wishes.  If nothing else, they’re good for a laugh.  Maybe you can identify?  I don’t know how am I fifty, anyway.  Where does the time go?

My Ten Fiftieth Birthday Wishes:

  1. Stick on eyebrows that won’t come off or irritate my skin when I take them off… I haven’t tried the stick-ons because I’m afraid.  That, and I’d suddenly look completely fake. Seriously though, where’d the eyebrows go?  Maybe a temporary tattoo of eyebrows would be better, because there’s no way I’d do a permanent eyebrow tatt, what if it went wrong?
  2. Eye make-up that applies itself.  Honestly, who has time for eyeliner?  Though the eye shadow can hide some wrinkles, I still only have time for it 1-2 days a week.
  3.  An extra pair of hands that will do all the typing I want.  They’ll respond to my every wish, but I will never feel their pain.
  4. A button on my shower that will emit lotion water.  Does that exist?  Well, it should.  Adjust your shower so it only hits you below the chin to avoid the eyes and mouth.
  5. Shoes that will massage your feet with every step.  Come on, that is not unrealistic!  Somebody needs to make this!
  6. For my favorite dress shirts to all be also available in cotton.  It absorbs sweat much more nicely than those other materials.  I could wear something other than t-shirts comfortably.
  7. A portable fan you can sit on your shoulder like a parrot.  It should be lightweight, too.  When a wave of sudden heat hits a gal, sometimes it shows up immediately on the face.  Just push the button and start the fan!  Everyone close by will benefit as well!
  8. Compression pants with extra padding at the hips and the rear area, for when you have to attend meetings sitting on hard chairs after a full day at work, yet you’d rather be on your couch with the feet up.  There should be some magnetic magic in the hip area for those of us with joint issues or arthritis.  Supposedly that helps.
  9. A new law to limit the cost of all band concerts so that I can afford to go to more of them every year.  Indoor/ outdoor, it doesn’t matter.  Music makes everything better and my budget isn’t growing much yearly.
  10. Something to drink on a long flight that will not upset my stomach.  Is there such a thing?  Travel is just not as comfortable as it used to be.  We need to fix that!

Oops, I’m at ten already.  I’m sure I could think of more, for instance, making every workplace dog-friendly and immediately lowering stress levels of all (well most) employees.  However, I promised ten, and ten puls a half is all you will get this time.  Just wait until I turn sixty!

Here I am, a year ago, in the finest Jimi Hendricks t-shirt of cotton, very little eye make-up, and subtle eyebrows.  (Subtle, LOL)…You’re right, I don’t want to act like a middle-aged woman!

#WeekendCoffeeShare. Closing in…

Coffee, Coffee Beans, Cookie, Biscuit

Welcome to my Weekend Coffee Share, hosted by Allison at Eclectic Ali in which I will do a drive by chat.  Stay and enjoy whatever beverage you choose, mine is a full-cup day, and there is much to do!

The first exciting news is that I am done proofing my manuscript for my upcoming sequel, Undercurrents in Time!  I am closing in on my goal!  I’ll send it off for formatting today.  I had fun with graphics one day and came up with a great idea for a teaser.  Here it is:

With a start of the engine, the car seemed to purr as if to ask, “Why have you never done this before_”

What’s special about this car?  It’s a time travel vehicle that happens to be housed within a classic automobile.  How does it fit with the storyline?  Tabitha takes off in it, without her husband’s knowledge.  Whatever could go wrong?

I’ll be sharing the book trailer soon and more of the blurb.  I had it made for me, I think it really rocks!

What else is exciting?  I’ll be turning 50 soon, very soon.  I am excited, because this gives me reason to make all kinds of funny jokes about myself.  Just you wait….

So, my summer will consist of planning, promoting, a book release, probably writing blog posts and interviews,  and a little travel in July.  Not to mention, June brings my boyfriend’s birthday and a Pixies concert!  This 80’s girl is going to rock.  Never mind the muscles spasms I’ve had in my knee lately.  I’m just so excited this morning.  Stay tuned to this blog!  There is so much good stuff to come…
