In The Mood

To be honest the title isn’t really appropriate, since I’m not in the mood for anything. I’m actually in a mood.

I know that at times I got through bouts of depression. And right now I’m going through one of those episodes. I have never been able to afford going to see someone about them. Often I will self treat myself. One thing I have been able to avoid is self-medication. I’m not one to take a bottle of booze off the the self and drink myself in to a drunken stupor. Although I have seen people do that.

Usually for me I will just crawl up into a ball. Well that’s more of a metaphor, since I don’t actually crawl up into a ball. What I will usually do is just sit in my comfy chair and stay inside. Somethings I will just mope. Other times I will sit in front of the TV and binge watch. Although the binge watching may be a channel and not a show.

I usually know when I get into a mood. Most of the times I have no idea what put me into it, nor what I can do to get out of them. I guess one bright spot is that I do acknowledge that I am in one. That sure wasn’t always the case.

I’m sitting here writing this and in a way, I am feeling better. Which is a good thing, I suppose. But I still feel like shutting out the world and just hide from it.

Is it the weather? The time of the month? Just my life in general? These are always questions I have and I never do seem to come up with an answer.

But for me, I’m going to put this away. Turn on the TV and get lost for awhile. It’s usually not too long.

Dog Days of Summer

Aren’t the Dog Days of Summer suppose to be in August? It is HOT, and to me it seems like those hot dog days of summer are here already. Last night was one of those classic Hot August Nights, only in July.

Generally it’s the bugs that keep me inside at night. I don’t know how bad the bugs were last night since I didn’t venture out away from the AC. Although I probably should have it checked since it was having a heck of a time keeping up yesterday.

A Bit Ironic

Yesterday I not only discovered that August 5th is ‘Be Naked Day’, but that this week (July 20-26, 2017) is also The American Association for Nude Recreation and Naturist Society, Nude Recreation Week. I had no idea of this since I do not belong to any nudist clubs or resorts. I’m just a simple at home nudist.

Although I do have friends that when we get together we shed our clothes and enjoy our time together nude. It was one of those friends who sent me the information about ‘Be Naked Day’. It was by another strange happenstance that I learn of Nude Recreation Week. I was listening to the radio and the announcer was talking about things on his calendar that may not be on everyone’s. One those was that it was the beginning of Nude Recreation Week.

About the only nude recreation, other than lounging around the house, I do is gardening. And what have I discovered? The first Saturday in May is ‘Nude Gardening Day’. And guess what? Even though I didn’t know I was celebrating it. I did do nude gardening on that day.

Once I heard about it being Nude Recreation Week I gave a call to my friend who had told me about ‘Be Naked Day’ and told him about Nude Recreation Week. Neither he nor his wife had heard of Nude Recreation Week. But they dis suggest that we should get together. I went over to their place and we enjoyed the evening together. Nude of course. Our recreation? We watched the movie ‘Hair’ on their big screen.

With the temperatures that they are forecasting for today, I have a feeling that there may be more people thinking about shedding their clothes to stay cool. But I’m not sure that it’ll be a good day for recreation unless it’s skinny dipping.

Anyone have a pool?

Be Naked Day

As I said in a previous post, I spend a lot of my time naked. In fact, as I am writing this I am sitting at my office desk naked as the day I was born. Now I’m sure you really don’t want to have the thought of a big old lady sitting naked at her desk, but it is a fact of my life. As I mentioned before, I hate clothes.

I just recently saw a site from England, benakedday.info declaring August 5, 2017 as ‘Be Naked Day’

I don’t think that Britain is quite as bad as America when it comes to nudity. And as mentioned at benakedday.info, ‘… other countries across Europe have a far healthier attitude to nudity than the British. They are not so embarrassed by the naked body and do not snigger with sexual innuendo.”

It seems that here in America, and yes even on the Eastern Shore, nudity is something to be keep out of public. Just look at the recent case of Ocean City, where there was much ado about nothing about toplessness on the beach. Look at some of the bathing suits. They hardly cover anything. And if it’s fair for a guy with big bouncing man-boobs to be on the beach topless, why not a woman?

We should get over the idea that being nude equals sex. For those of us who are naturist it’s just a way to feel free. It’s only about sex if that’s the only time you are nude.

The site asks us to ‘… dare someone to stay naked for the day – and see whether they do!” So here it is, I dare you. I plan to be naked that day.

400 Word or Less

Someone told me that the length for a posting is 400 words or less. That’s it’s best to get to your point quick and keep it short and simple. And that 400 words is about the attention span.

I’m not sure whether that is correct, but you may have noticed that has been what I have been keeping these post lengths at. 400 words or less.

I’m sure that there aren’t many people reading these. Aunt Judy are you one of my 2 or 3 readers?

Well this one is sure less than that since I don’t really have anything more to say.

Life is what one makes it to be. It’s not hard to sit around and feel sorry for yourself. It’s much easier to accept who you are and go with it.

Day 2

This morning I woke up and decided to look back on what I had written yesterday. After adding a few words, changing a few sentences I hit the ‘Publish’ button.

So it this journey has officially begun.

The day so far has been uneventful. It wasn’t last night. Yesterday was quite muggy and humid. Although watching Al on the Today Show it was obviously not as hot as some places. Mid-80’s sure beats anything over 100. Even if it’s a dry 100. Fortunately on the Delmarva Peninsula there aren’t too many days that reach 100. Good thing too since the humidity gets pretty high here.

A storm came through late yesterday afternoon and caused some damage. I hear that not too far away in Greenwood Delaware it looks like a tornado may have touched down. Feeling sorry for any one who may have been affected.

The Beginning …..

Where to start?
As is said start from the beginning.

I’m Stephanie Georgina Allen. Not a name that I have ever liked. Stef or Stevie even less. Although for a time in the 70’s when Stevie Nicks was popular, I did give Stevie some serious consideration. But Stephanie Georgina was the one that was given to me.

One day when I was about 8, my grandfather said to me, “Hi Sunshine”. I liked being called that and I started to call myself Sunshine. Well, at least during my school days and into college. In the late 70’s Sunshine started to seem too much of an old hippie name. I shorted it Sunny. And been Sunny most of my adult life. I have recently gone back to Sunshine. Being an old hippie now seems to be what I want to be.

So please just call me Sunshine.

I have been thinking about doing a blog for awhile. I’m now nearly 60 years old, and semi-retired. I’m back living in the area where I grew up after being away for a long time. In many ways it’s familiar, but there are also a lot of new discoveries.

This past weekend I was sitting listening to music and getting mellow with a friend. We started talking about life, liberty and happiness. I happen to mention that I had thought about doing a blog in the past. The conversations went something like this;

“Why don’t you start”

I answered, “Because blogs are so 2000’s.”

“Maybe, but why not start one. I’ll help create it.”

My friend is much more technology literate than I am. Over the weekend after deciding on a theme, “The musings of an aging wannabe Flower Child” we put it together and here we are.

Why ReHeated Coffee?
Short answer – I had always thought that in ways blogs were ways of using yesterday’s coffee to tell their story. And I wanted to use yesterday’s Coffee. But that domain name was already used. Thinking more about how yesterday’s coffee is fixed, we realized that it needed to be reheated.

So here we are the beginning of ReHeated Coffee.

As an overweight woman nearing 60 there are a few things I have come to accept about me and my life:

I am plus-sized – OK, maybe a bit bigger than plus-sized;
I have stretch marks, My tummy jiggles and My tits sag;
I’m still interested in Sex – Just others may not be interested in sex with me;
I’m Bi-sexual;
My once long dark hair is totally grey, although still long;
I am an orphan – Both my Mom and Dad have died;
I am a moderate liberal;
And I love where and who I am.

Where will this blog and my musings take me?
That is a good question, one that not even I know the answers for certain.

For the past few years I have been the caregiver for an elderly relative and during that time I had plenty of thoughts going through my mind that I should have put on paper (although in the 21st century I suppose it’s to put it in the cloud), but didn’t. I sometimes regret that and some of the postings here may be me recalling those times.

I’m not an artist, but I appreciate art of all types. And at times even dabble in artistic ventures. For now I’m a writer. Probably not a very good one, you the reader can judge for that yourself.

I am thinking I may do some poetry. Or erotic fiction. But mostly just my thoughts.
