2 weeks, wet paddle and skin care question

Howdy do all!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is 2 weeks from today?  So crazy.  I need to start getting my various breads cut up and dried for my stuffing.  (Sorry, I still call it stuffing even though it doesn't go in the bird.  Dressing is for salads.  Just how I grew up)  I'll have to wait until the week of Thanksgiving to get the head count for pies so I can see who is boycotting this year.  Funny how I used to think I had a normal family...now I think there's no such thing.

Yesterday we decided since it was going to be the "hottest" day of the week, a balmy 58, we would paddle.  Safe to say we're well past peak.


We had quite the head wind on the way out so we took a few minutes to dock up and enjoy the wispy clouds.


While I love my new water bottle , the only down side is it's hard to tell with the sports lid if it's open or closed.  Well, mine was open when I chucked it in the back and I ended up spending the second half of the paddle sitting in half my water bottle.  Womp womp.   Somehow I always end up with a wet ass one way or another.

By 4:30pm we were done and heading back home.  I made turkey burgers, half a sweet tater and roasted carrots for dinner.  It was quite yummy and I will be more than happy to have the other burger for lunch today.

We caught up on the DVR and watched Limitless, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds and a few episodes of Hawaii Life.

I'm looking to start adding Retinol to my skin care.  I have some already but I just checked and they're loaded with parabens and I don't want to go that route.  If anyone has some recommendations, I'm all ears!

Happy Almost Friday!

  1. I had a great time paddling with you. It was a little choppy and windy at times but overall a great workout and I'll take what we can get this late in the season. I never thought we'd be at the point where we're listening to Christmas music on the radio on our way to a paddle.

  2. It's nice that you were able to get out and paddle yesterday. I know the season is soon over so every outing counts.

    It's stuffing to me too, even if it never goes near the bird. I hear people say dressing and there is always a mental lag time for me to catch up to what they mean.

    I've got no advice to offer on skin care, sorry. A dermatologist would shake their head and sigh (or lecture me) - soap and water followed by sunscreen lotion. I should probably do more, but I don't know where to start.

  3. What are you trying to achieve with the skin care? Moisturization? Protection??

    1. Got those covered. Looking to reduce forehead wrinkles. I want to stop them going from cracks to crevices.

  4. I'm 58 yrs old. I find that a good washing / moisturizing routine, morning and night, does very well with the wrinkles. Sorry....can't recommend any Retinol-type products.

  5. Stuffing all the way. And it has to go in the bird. I don't even eat it but if thanksgiving is prepared by me, it's in the bird (extra can be made sans bird cavity). My family has done it that way for generations and never had an illness outbreak as a result, so we know what we're doing and can handle the challenge of properly cooking true "from the butt" stuffing.

  6. I'm all about "stuffing". I never actually understood the term dressing when I was a kid because to me dressing is for the outside of the bird, not the inside. Just like the term "bed clothes" -- oddest term I've read and actually had to look it up! I thought it was a specific blanket or something! LOL Out of all the different foods for Thanksgiving, the stuffing has always been my favorite and it's the one thing I go for with leftovers first. There's something about the onions and celery that I just love.
