Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘New Rochelle

Good Monday Morning Friends, I hope you had a nice weekend and if you are a Raven’s fan – CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

We didn’t have a Super Bowl party but my son invited two of his buddies over to watch the game and they had a great time.  I made chicken wings, pizza and slow cooked barbecue meatballs which they ate well before half time!  We were all very excited to watch the Ravens win especially after the 30 minute blackout, which caused a lot of anxiety for the fans, even Twitter shut down for a short time.  Blue Ivy’s mom was on fiyah and I enjoyed her performance with Destiny Child but not all of this year’s commercials performed well. Once again, Dorito’s knocked it out of the park with the Goat and “Daddy Princesses; I also liked the Tide “stain”, eTrade baby and Budweiser commercials but missed the one with the Clydesdale horses. The “Go Daddy” ad was disgusting and Dodge Ram was disappointing because of the lack of diversity in their “God Made Farmers” commercial and if I hear that Gangum Style song used again I’ma scream!

I am not a football aficionado so I cannot comment on the actual game, only that I love Ray Rice because I grew up with his mother and aunt in New Rochelle, NY.   Back in the day I dated and almost married his great uncle, Kevin, but that was way before he was born and a story for another time…it’s just a distant memory now….

The game ended late and I didn’t prepare my clothes for the week so once again I hit the back of the closet and pulled out this pantsuit.

Hello friends, I hope your day was productive and stress free but if not, have I got a Vlogger for you!

Cook E doeFace Place

Cook E doeFace  is my “play cousin” from Philly, she reminds me so much of my real cousins in New York, like them she makes me laugh and brightens my day.  If I have a rough day I’ll log onto YouTube and watch her make a meal or cocktail, my favorite is “Thank You Lawd“, reminds me of the “I Love Lucy”  VitaVetaVegamin episode.  With so much hatred and negativity in today’s world, it’s nice to have an escape, a place to go if only for a few minutes to kick back, relax and enjoy.  So if you need some funny in your life, check out my “cuz”, I guarantee she will make you smile!

 

 

“Cook E doeFace Place is a relaxing place where you can get great, easy to make recipes, for novice all the way to the pros.”

Sit back, relax and enjoy the show – Smooches!

 

Hello friends and Happy Sunday. Today is a lazy-do-nothing-but relax day because it’s cold and rainy. I did wash the kitchen floor which has been on my to-do list for over a month. The weekend is over but tomorrow schools are closed as well as many businesses however, I will be working.

Saturday was a successful day, I made $85.00, selling at Dutch Country Farmers Flea Market. Sold clothing, shoes, household items and Halloween decorations from $1.00 to $5.00. The sons helped me set up and stayed the entire time. I donated to Goodwill several boxes of summer clothing and decorations that did not sell. The weather started out cool but warmed up nicely and the people were friendly so overall it was a good day.

Once home I had to get ready to go to Dover to meet my cousins for dinner. They had arrived earlier on a bus trip from New Rochelle to Dover Downs. I am not a big slots player and didn’t want to lose the $85.00, so only played 3 slot machines and lost $15.00. My cousins broke even and we went to dinner at Olive Garden. I love the cold salads and warm bread and did not overdo it with the pasta. Just as my day started, it ended equally well because I was home before 8:00 and my cousin called at midnight she was at work, I wish I had half her energy!
