We are home! We just got home this is just a review before the new year....

Happy New Year!

2004 in review

1. What did you do in 2004 that you'd never done before?
Gave a speech with Master (January). Went through something with Master's work that I never knew would/could happen to a person (Feb through April). Went to Santa Fe (June). Made some Norwegian goodies (November & December). Went on a day trip where we hit every weather element....rain, sleet, snow, fog, and the sun shining like a warm spring day (which it was).

2. Did you keep your new year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don't really make any and probably won't make any for this year

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Friend's children did but no one close to me, no but lots of engagements and weddings this past year

4. Did anyone close to you die?
yes I did have a few people

5. What countries did you visit?
No countries this year. But some new places in the USA

6. What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?

More organized, more calm and quiet inside then I ever have had in my whole life.

9. What was your biggest failure?
not working on my art more

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
yes, but that is a constant in my life and this year I got some things more under control - such as allergies.

11. What was the best thing you bought?
nothing specific comes to mind. We got some new curtains for the living room that I really like. We got a star for our tree this year and a beautiful santa and sleigh.

12. Whose behavior merited celebration?
Master really has worked hard on finding a path to go career wise...and this year I think He gotten closer to it and I am proud of him for putting all he does into his passion. And I know this year will be even harder work for Him in that area but I know He can do it!

13. Whose behavior made you appalled and depressed?
my own on many occasions, 12 people who made a decision I could not believe, my parents for not accepting my sister being gay

Santa Fe

16. What song will always remind you of 2004?
I don't think one song will remind me of 2004...maybe Can't Help Falling in Love because of a family wedding this past summer.

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
I. happier or sadder? I am not sadder but I really enjoyed having Christmas just with Master last year alone and this year was a little more busy and so it makes me sad but not unhappy. I love my family and miss them terribly but I think it would be nicer to visit them when it was not a holiday.

37. Tell us a valuable life lesson you earned in 2004:
it's okay to be where we are at

38. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
I don't think this sums up on my year but for tonight....this night of the year it does. It is not only an anniversary for me but it is a night of past reflections..going over past years. I was explaining to Master earlier that some things seem so faded like I can't remember them anymore. It scares me. It seems like I will remember them different. And that scares me too. But at the same time things that were once in my life...people, things, memories don't matter like they once did...and other things do matter more.

There are places by Beatles

There are places I remember
All my life
Though some have changed
Some forever
Not for better
Some have gone
And some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life
I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one
Compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love
As something new
Though I know I'll never those affection
For people and things
That went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life
I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things
That went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life
I love you more

Oohh ...

In my life
I love you more

Happy Holidays!

Well we leave today (I can't sleep so here right now so up typing), we had some delays due to Master's work and just so much still to do here. Reminder I will be gone for almost 2 weeks so there most likely won't be any or few posts during that time.

A couple of things...

I hope everyone has VERY Happy Holidays!

My Master's post is incredible! I love Him very much and am very blessed to have Him in my life.

And finally....

There is a meme going around on LiveJournal called...10 Small Pleasures

Ten Small Pleasures
1. Christmas Tree decorated and twinkling during the evening while I sip a cup of mulled cider.
2. Chocolate
3. Getting mail (snail mail)
4. Drawing with charcoal
5. Getting unexpected calls from friends I have not talked to in a while
6. Day trips...driving around and just enjoying nature
7. Seeing someone get pleasure from something I did for them (such as our neighbors being so happy to get goodies from us)
8. Christmas music
9. wool socks that keep my feet warm
10. Master snuggling up to me in the morning and waking me with rough caresses...followed by wonderful sex.

Those are small pleasures....

All of them add up to so much more. Life is full of so many wonderful things...

Family and friends...
Hugs and kisses...
Laughter and tears...

And right now I am very thankful and feel very blessed to have so many wonderfully special people and things in my life.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas filled with peace, joy and love!

Little Girl of the 70's

    Life Update with some Sex & SM :)

    Things are not letting up with the holidays so I have not been updating. Again I have been wanting to write, but I have not had time.

    Friday I spent baking Christmas cookies.

    Saturday morning I baked more cookies and then got the potluck dishes ready for a party we were attending. It was Master's office party. I went just a little ahead and had a nice time getting to know a few of the women there better. Master's boss' wife is very warm and just so down to earth. They have a gorgeous home. We had great food and drinks. It was much better then last year. I enjoyed it.

    Sunday morning Master and I had fun in the bedroom for a while. Lots of spanking, hood, and being fucked hard and long. It was delish! Master spanked me like He was playing the drums at first. He then put a hood on me. It is the one that is made of perforated leather and laces up the back. We then kind of spooned...but not in a soft and cuddly way. It was very sadistic. Master arm was around my neck - His hand reaching down to my tits to squeeze and hurt - His other hand punching and spanking my ass hard. He was hitting my ass. I felt the moment His sadist came out during it. It became rougher and harder. He would pull me back into Him hard at times too. I felt His hard cock behind me and I would moan. It turned me on so much. Soon I was begging Master to fuck me. And soon He was putting into position roughly fucking me from behind (we have figured out a good place to fuck doggie style in our house without ruining Master's knees). He fucked me a long time that way and it felt so good! yummy! We ended up lying there with me in the hood while we both basked in the fun morning.

    Monday I did some cleaning and more baking. Also got a few packages together to send out. Master had to work very late tonight so we have not much time together. And I feel the rest of the week is going to go the same way as we are gearing up to leaving on Friday for family. So also note that I might have a chance to update at Master's parents but at my parents I won't be able too.

    I need to do some more baking tomorrow and wrapping presents.

    Master is turning off computers so that is my cue to wrap things up as we are heading to bed.

    By the way, my ass still hurts!

    The Rest of the Festive Birthday....

    So as I said I was up very late on Sunday....

    In addition to finishing up one of Master's presents...I also wrapped the rest of His presents and decorated the house so it would look festive for His Birthday instead of just Christmas. I had light blue and royal blue streamers that I put on the door, in the kitchen, dining room and then I made a curtain of streamers across the office door which I knew was the first place He would go...

    I then had 2 pre-made Happy Birthday signs that hung up and 9 homemade signs. Some that said Happy Birthday Daddy.

    I wanted to make Master's Birthday very special. Because it was His birthday and they are to be celebrated in my mind. As I have ranted about several I won't go into that again.

    Anyway, we had breakfast together and then He opened presents. After that I actually went to bed and He worked on project. After that we relaxed around here for a while before catching an early dinner at His favorite steakhouse.

    The celebration ended basically with me putting row of 3 and then 5 candles in the brownies I made him for His birthday...and singing to Him.

    So it was a nice relaxing festive day for Him. I am very thankful He was born because He is a wonderful man and Master. And I am a lucky girl to have the opportunity to celebrate His birthday!

    A Project for Master's Birthday...

    Well I have been busy....and thus not posting. Even though of course while I have been busy I have wanted to post several times when I did not have time to sit down and write.

    Last night was a very late night for me. I started a project at the beginning of last week, but with being so busy lately I really did not get it done until the wee hours of the night...or morning depending on how you look at it.

    So the beginning of last week, I got this idea for Master's birthday. I wanted to 100 Reasons I love him....vanilla type thing so that I could possible frame for Him. Then I thought it would be cool if He could read one a day - so I thought of doing them on slips of paper and putting them in a jar. But then I decided I wanted something that He could have all year around...365. So from the 100 reasons I loved Him spawned a 365 day type inspirational card set.

    I typed up in a word document formatted for business cards the 100 Reasons I love him (which actually ended up being 102 because I did not count them until I was already at 102 so just kept it at 102), photography quotes, personal growth quotes, stress tips, love quotes, questions to ponder, things to celebrate, explore, share or unwind with and all sorts of other odds and end kind of quotes and questions.

    I then printed them - some on business card sheets, others on colored paper and some on business card size sticky labels. After they were done, I took some and decorated them. And others I just kept white like the business cardstock.

    So now Master has a set of 365 inspirational cards and reasons I love Him. It is all vanilla so He can bring it to work.

    Here are some pictures....

    The little container they are sitting in I have had for a few years never knowing what I was going to do with it, but knew it would be good for something someday. I got it at an after Christmas sale one year. It contained coasters. I used the coasters as candle holders. I then packaged them up with candles and gave as gifts one year to some friends.

    I am sure if someone was wanting to do this...they could make or get a paper mache box at a craft store that would fit the cards. And then just paint or decorate the box.

    I used rubbers stamps, stickers, ribbon, little drawings with colored pencils, construction paper, colored copier paper, scalloped scissors and those types of things on the cards.

    I used different fonts and titles at the top like Unwind, Photography quote. As I said I had all sorts of different types of categories. I got a lot of the quotes from quotes I have saved over the years. But another great source that I found was Power Quotes. They had quotes and then also questions to ponder that go along with the quote. It was incredible place.

    A close up of some of the cards. The one that says, "Share: Eat dinner by candlelight"...well the card under it is the how back looks. A collage of paper. The share card was printed off on a label. So I would lay down scrapes of paper that I had from the decorating the other cards and then just lay the sticker down on top of it and turn it over and then fill in the spaces by gluing more pieces.

    I will do another post about Master's birthday and other things going on soon...I hope. I do need to do Christmas cards tomorrow. And maybe bake some cookies.

    Also I am so behind on emails personal and email lists. I am actually going to unsubscribe from a few lists so I don't feel guilty about not posting to them.

    I really wanted to do the Holidailies but I will be gone 2 weeks the end of December so it would not make sense for me to because of that and also just so busy right now.

    More to come later.


    Happy Birthday Master!

    I love you and hope your Birthday is wonderful

    Please may I ask that everyone go over to His blog and wish Him a Happy Birthday!
