Bonjour ami

Je vois le soleil!!
Il fait beau temps aujourd'hui.
Il fait du vent...but I'll take it!!!
The past few days it's been so cold and damp, it chilled me to the bone.

I'm still waiting for Monsieur Lakehouse to make that larger mantle for the living room, so I can move this smaller one to the bedroom.
I said I wouldn't shave my legs until he finished the task.
I'm not real sure who this is adversely affecting more.

I now have to wear slacks to church because my legs look like "chia pets".
My son in law says he believes in Sasquatch. granddaughter wanted to know if I wanted beads in the corn-rows.
One good thing...I don't need to wear long underwear while shoveling snow.
The bad thing...when the mantle finally gets finished, I'm going to need a machete to get through all this under growth!
Au revoir.


  1. LOL- I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants!
    You are a hoot. Thank you so much for the laugh today.
    I sure hope you get that mantle before short weather. Leg hair in pig tails might be a new trend, though. You know, french girls don't shave the pit hairs could be next.
    Still laughing- love you, hair and all!

    1. I learned that in 1973. Laying in the sun on the Normandy Beaches in Deauville. Two men approached me, speaking French. I didn't understand French very well back then. My husband, and brother in law(whose family we were visiting in Paris) were laughing as I just smiled and nodded at the gentlemen. Little did I know, the men thought I was a prostitute!!! I was mortified!!! Not as mortified as my mother in law was when she found me washing my feet in the little sink that was supposed to be used for another body part. I can still hear her say in a hushed voice..."stupid American girl!"

  2. You are tickling my funny bone today! That's one way to get men to do their job! My hubs has a thing about my toes looking like I just has a pedicure. He notices right away if there is a chip or if they are too long. I'd like to say foot fetish, but it's more a toes fetish!! lol! Good luck with the mantel! :)


  3. LOL LOL! you are funny Debbie! I love it. Stay warm my friend. I hate that feeling of cold to the bone!

  4. LOLOL! Oh my gosh, girl!!! Have you been in to the FatCat*HappyDog wine again...???? lolol! All I gotta say is that you best get that hair shaved before this summer. I don't want to see a clogged drain the tub....

    Maybe if you whisper some of those Frenchy words in the Monsieur's ear, you may get that mantel built....

    LUV U, silly goil!

    xoxo laurie

  5. Too funny Debbie! You'll win out in the end though!

    Kat :)

  6. So funny, Debbie! Love all of your beautiful whites! Big Foot is really, well, BIG out here, haha!!

  7. I am having a 50 gallon drum of hot wax shipped to you. It will be less painful than shaving....maybe...xo Diana

  8. Beautiful pictures. I love white *smile*.


  9. Haha! This was very funny~just was discussing the lovely chin hairs that decide to pop up after a "certain age"....UGH> very pretty pics all in all over here!

  10. its cold....your just keeping yourself warm!!

  11. Debbie, That is so funny.:):) I can't wait to see the new mantle and the little one installed in the bedroom. Love you decorating. Hope you are feeling strong and well. Smiles to you, xoxo, Susie(She Junks)

  12. Thanks for starting my day off with a hearty laugh!!

  13. Ha ha ha ....well now that is a good way to keep warm !! Yeah whisper a few French sweet nothings to your hubby and he might give in ! Gail x

  14. Oh my gosh! I laughed so hard Debbie!! I missed the last few posts so I'm catching up. Maybe if you put on some short shorts and parade around the house in them with your braids, the message will sink in.

    Excuse me while I go to the bathroom, or I'm going to need a diaper from laughing so hard!
