Tis the Season...

           Tis the season for so many things...hope you are all putting aside some time to just enjoy and share with friends and family members.  This is a catch-up, catch-all post...
.......Maintenance this week was on Tuesday...After my naked kneeling, and re-claiming time I was over Master's lap. He is reminding me, that no matter how busy I am the rest of the week getting ready, I am to remember that I am not in this alone, that I belong to Him, and to keep breathing.  As Master was telling me this, He was also warming up my bottom..He is very good at multi-tasking.   He tells me He will be using one of my favorites, the rose leather paddle for maintenance. WOW....that is good news. I relax and enjoy...those words rarely go along with maintenance.  When He is done, I am on my knees thanking Him (and this time I mean it...lol).  Then Master announces, time for his favorite....ut oh....that usually means His whip.  I was right, He has me get up and lean over a pillow, and He is whipping my back..I am not quiet, I don't think there is such a thing as an easy whipping.  When He feels my back is nice and toasty and striped He gives me a nice back rub, just as I am relaxing, He announces that He wants to whip my bottom...He does not think that has happened in a long time ( not nearly long enough to my way of thinking).  He leaves my bottom, very tingly and sore. 
...........There are some questions from the meme going around that I have not answered...so here goes.. Katie's question...Pick something to talk to your partner/spouse about related to spanky business during the holidays. What would it be?  We have had this talk...splurges are allowed, been when He taps my hand or gives me the 'look' I do not need another cookie or whatever it is I am reaching for.
Tersichore's question...Do you enjoy listening to Christmas music? Do you have a favorite song? I love Christmas music, and love to sing (my version of sing) along. My favorites would include, "What Child is This?", "Joy to the World" and "White Christmas".
Ronnie's questions...colored or white lights?..your worst present?   Well, neither.  I have the frog tree, the decorations are all mostly green or have some green on them, since they all either are frogs or have something to do with frogs.  I found the decorations got loss in a green tree.  So I use a white tree, and because of my theme, I use all green lights.  The tree is chock full and at night when the tree lights are on the tree seems to glimmer...it is quite pretty...at least I like it.
Worst present..hmmm....well, a gift card to a grocery store, it was useful, but not personal.
Rosie's question...Fairy or star on top of the tree? Would you believe a frog angel...yes there is such a thing.
Meridith's question..What is planned for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners?  Christmas eve....everyone gets to choose favorite munchie or appetizer, and we make those and munch away all evening.  We get quite a variety, and the grands love that they get a say. Dessert is chocolate fondue! Christmas Dinner is more traditional, usually a ham or turkey, altho this year, I have made lasagna ahead of time and it is in the freezer..that way we just have to make a salad and some garlic bread. Dessert is a birthday cake for baby Jesus.
Ella's question...Has your tree ever fallen down? Thankfully no.
I think that covers all the questions...
.......(chapter 3...if you are still reading)...The first set of grands arrive tomorrow, Master wanted to be sure, I at least started the week, with a warm bottom to remind me that perfection is not necessary, and to ask for help.  I did tell him that my bottom was still sore from Tuesday's maintenance, He nodded and said good, we will be layering the soreness, it will last longer.  After my kneeling time, I was over His knee, and He nicely started with His hand and I was already squirming.  He switched to a shamrock paddle, and I was quickly getting vocal.   He did stop for some soothing rubbing, but it seemed like forever before I heard..enough of that.  
My relief was short lived, as He told me, the rest of his plan ...a striped bottom to keep me calm during the week ahead.
He had me lean over a pillow, I was complaining from the beginning, as He was telling me , these were the light ones.  He did give me a couple breaks, where I was challenged to distract Him from continuing..I did my best, but it did not deter Him..Finally, He is admiring His 'art work'...my striped bottom...tracing the stripes, kissing them, lightly rubbing them, until I start to squirm for another reason. When we are both sated, we wonder....how soon til bedtime..lol...not soon enough.
....and finally...I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas....I hope you get to see some of the wonder of the holiday through the  eyes of some special  young ones, that all of you who are struggling for whatever reason, remember that it is a season for miracles, and as my sore bottom will be reminding me....it will be wonderful even if not every item on my list is crossed off, and I do not have to do it all myself....Enjoy and make some wonderful memories!

Maintenance...Variety Style

                 BRRR...Winter has arrived, and since it is nice to have a white Christmas, I will let it stay until then...yes I am a little delusional.  We are headed to my daughter's tomorrow, and on Sunday meet up with my son's family. We seem to be on an every other year Christmas outing to NYC. We see the morning Rockettes' Show, ooh and ahh at the beautiful Rockefeller tree, have lunch and see something new.  
         Maintenance this week was on Thursday, Master said it would be a variety maintenance.  I was not sure what that meant, but knew it would start with some naked kneeling time. Master was using His hands and voice to remind me that  no matter what, 'all of me, all of the time...HIS'.  As soon as I am relaxed, Master has me get over his knee, and He starts with a hand warm-up, while we are still chatting a bit.
The maintenance paddle always seems to just appear in His hand and He starts in lightly...it has been more than a week.  Four sets of 25, rubbing between sets, each set a little harder...I settle into the routine.  After the last set Master tells me time to 'thank him'..I am up and on my knees, enjoying His taste. Master is also making sure that I am enjoying, using His fingers to get me 'all wet, soppy and messy'...His description.
       Just as I am thinking permission time...Master says to me...today is maintenance---variety style.  He tells me to go to His bag and get a leather toy for round two. Round two ..of maintenance...I look at Him trying to wrap my head around this idea of His. He tells me ...we could repeat round one first as He picks up the maintenance paddle. I get up and moving, looking for my favorite rose paddle, as Master is telling me to decide or He will.  I cannot find the rose paddle, but do find a black leather paddle, hand it to Master and get back over His knee. Different paddle, same routine...4 sets of 25 with a stop for some rubbing  after each set, and me 'thanking' Master at 100. 
        Master then tells me to get a wooden paddle out of His bag.  I think about telling Him, He already used wood when He started with the maintenance paddle, but know better, He would probably use it again and still have me get another wooden one.  I am looking for the lightest one I can find, first one out is a shamrock one....small, but heavy.  The next one I find is the 'My Paddleman'...my gift to Him a few Christmases ago.  I put it aside, but the next one is a mahagony paddle same size, but heavier.  Master is giving me the..decide!..look so I choose the paddleman one. He is surprised, but pleased at my choice.   Same routine...third time.
         I am thinking..hoping...we might be done.  Master says, one more since we have missed quite a few. The only different paddle left is the acrylic one, I am not happy, even on a very warm bottom, it HURTS!  Master surprises me, and asks if I would like to get the flogger out of His bag. No need to ask me twice....He tells me to stay standing and lean into the mantle of the fireplace. Same routine, He starts off with lots of swishing and very light....ohhhhh, soooo nice.  Each set is heavier, but I am in my zone, enjoying the sensations. After the last set Master is rubbing my back telling me how nice and warm it is.  I am so relaxed....and I hear...turn around, put one hand under each breast and present them to me.
      Not words I love to hear, but I am mellow and know that it will happen.  I close my eyes, since otherwise I flinch and get out of position.  He is still using the flogger, but not at full length.  One set of 25, with only one warning not to cover my nipples and Master is please.  Master knows that ending with the flogger will have me practically dripping and just about ready to ask for a permission.  Master decides I should 'simmer' a little..as He stirs the pot and makes sure I will explode on His command.  I am soon begging for permissions...and as Master said much later.....that was one..or two...or three...for the books....I just nod as I snuggle into Him content, satiated.....and ready for a nap.

Hello...With a Heart Full of Gratitude...

         Where to begin?  I guess first with a THANK-YOU, to all of you who have inquired where I was and how was I doing. I owe you each a thank-you note, which I am working on. It is  amazing how people you have never met in person, can care so much about each other...your notes helped me remember how blessed I am.
      Next, an APOLOGY  for being gone so long. I never meant for it to be that long, but the longer I was  away the harder it seemed to start again. I will tell you that I missed being here, I did keep up some with most of you. I do not plan on any other long absences, at least without a warning and updates.
       The REASON....just life. I am okay, as is Master, and W/we are still U/us.  I have been away more than usual, I was not feeling well for a bit, M has been crazy busy at work, and His work trips always seem to be when I am home. He is still working weekends and extra long days.  
       About a month ago, Master asked if I knew how many maintenance spankings we had missed...I replied...a lot?  He chuckled and agreed that was what He was thinking.  He said 6 seemed like a fair number and we would make up 2 per day for the next three days.   I was leery...seemed like a lot for my bottom to suddenly absorb. We got through the first day, did not get to it the second day...such is life....and on the third day.....He nicely offered me a long flogging instead...I am sure you all know how long it took be to get naked and ready...the blink of an eye?  
            Winter has arrived, here. Living close to a great lake is wonderful in the summer, but just means more snow in the winter. I am gearing up for Christmas...all the grands will be at grandma's:):)! Lots of traditions to continue, and pass on.  
             It is good to be back....
