Can hand holding be considered a way of flirting?
Oh heck yeah, just think of all the things you can say in this simple gesture. A squeeze can mean so many different things, depending on the circumstances.
In a busy, overcrowded city street the squeeze may mean, I'm scared. On a roller coaster, it may mean, I'm having fun or I'm gonna pee my pants (depending on your feelings about roller coasters, hehe)
In bed, it may mean, more or almost there. As you walk down a quiet, peaceful lane it can mean, I love you.
So many situations, so many emotions. Is hand holding a flirt? Yep, I truly think it is...
What about you?

I have to say, this Thursday Thirteen is close to my own heart. I'm a terrible speller. So when I looked up commonly misspelled words for my list, well, I found out how "common" I am! LOL Thank goodness for spell checker and my handy dandy dictionary/thesaurus. ;)

I adore black and white photography. It calls to me. Tempts me to indulge in moments spent, camera in hand, going in search of the next perfect picture...
As I was cruising around the Photobucket site today, I happened upon a section that I hadn't checked out before...
Oh my, black and whites, touched with computerized color. I'm in love. A new passion to add to my overflowing cup, a new temptation...

Yeah, in my very fertile dreams!
So, no, my pool boy does not look like this, heck, I don't even have a pool, but if I did... yum
If I did, my weekends would be less about the run around, you know: grocery store, Target, laundry and more about, Sven, Viking pool boy of the Gods. LOL
What about you, if all the chores were done, how would you spend your weekend?

Welcome to Tuesday's Temptation.
Yesterday, I picked up an interesting book called 1001 Sexcapades to do if you Dare by Bobbi Dempsey. As I set the book on the counter for Dear Hubby to pay, he blessed me with one of his low chuckles and raised eyebrows. I was tempted to take on number 675 in the book - Get Your Thrills Between The Books! ;)
There is a wide range of chapters: Beginner Basics, Steamy Solo Moves, The Great Outdoors and For the Daring are just a few.
I was happy to see that as I paged through the 1001 Sexcapades, that I've attempted many of the sexy capades! There are still a few I want to attempt. ;)
One of my favorites so far is number 1. Say Something Sexy - Tempt your partner with a really naughty saying. Tell them exactly what you want to do to them and don't hold back on the words. Tell it like it is and see if you can tempt your honey on this temptation Tuesday!
Have a good one!

And so ends another Spring Break vaca.
Yep, Darling Diva is back in school after her week-long, relaxing break and mom is putting her nose to the grindstone. ~ouch~
I've learned over the last couple of years that the more I try to squeeze in writing time during one of her weeks off, the less it gets done. So instead, this last week was spent knee deep in fun!
Cookie baking, science projects and wild games of rummy with DD kicking mom's arse were highlights of the week. We also snuck in some quality reading time and a few episodes of Charmed season two. Yep, I have a second generation fan! ;)
But now it's time to crack the whip on myself ~oooh~ and get back at it, my jaguar triad is getting antsy and needy. They were quiet during the last week, but are now howling loudly to get on with the show!
Off I go...
Have a great week. :)
