  I owe a grate deal to this site.  The folks here have, over the years, helped me find comfort in being a trans woman.

I have to wholeheartedly agree also. This site has opened up a new world for me. It is helping me become the woman I need to be.

Good morning Coffee tastes fantastic, no work today, gonna work in the yard and go be with friends later for dinner. 

 

Sharing an Ariel photo of the lighthouse (point Wilson) I am standing in front of(avatar pix) for a slightly different perspective. My daughter was piloting the plane and I was in the co-pilots seat as I snapped this shot a few years ago passing over...

Beautiful  Cyndee!  Sort of looks like a fish mouth.  I'm sure it was a great flight with your daughter.

Drinking my morning cup of joe in my Disney mug.  

 

I Bought a second Sailboat yesterday. Moving from an 18 footer to a 32!  This one is very capable of off shore sailing.  A previous owner s preparing it to sail across the Atlantic when his family decided they needed a bigger boat if they were going to be on it that long. It’s been neglected for a few years so It does need some work before I’m ready to take it out and I need to learn some things about it as it’s the largest boat I’ve sailed.  But I’m looking forward to getting it out.  I’m hoping to sail it to Florida this winter.

Willow,

 

It is evening time and my morning cup of coffee has long since lost its oomph.   Anyway, congrats on the new old boat.  If you ask real nice (beg😀), I'll make some time and get down your way and pitch in with some elbow grease and skinned knuckles.

 

Hi! to the other half,

Good Morning All! 

Or maybe Good-Day is more appropriate now.  It's too hot to go out, so I've kept myself hidden inside with all windows drawn like a vampire....

Good morning! After reading all of the crazy heat wave reports, I’m glad I live on the West coast, It’s 70 degrees (with a high of 73 later on,) with a light breeze. 

It will get hot over here later in July, more so in August- September.

In the east county, it will get up to 84. Last week it was in the 90s, and no doubt it will be in the 90-100s in August- October months. 

As I mentioned, I’m glad I live on the west coast. 

Be careful , hydrate and rehydrate!

Except for the sun it sounds good over there. Here we live with a wide variation, but I like the heat better than most. I'm loving it here at the moment picking Loganberries directly off the bush as a snack between meals lol. The redcurrents are at their prime too! A short while ago it was Gooseberries and soon be time for doing the same with blackberries. I love to pick things direct rather than buying at the supermarket.

We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.

The odd part of this heat wave is that it’s hotter in DC than it is in eastern South Carolina.  They have a heat warning, we only have a heat advisory.  Some difference our temperature is mid nineties but feels like 105. In DC it feels like 108.

 

anyway I stay inside in the afternoon and drink lots of ice water.  If I have outdoor work I have to do it’s early morning or evening.  Going to the pool is like taking a warm bath, the water temperature is in the  nineties too

They usually don't make desserts as I seldom make them. My main course is usually ample lol, but I love a sprinkling on my breakfast cereal. I freeze what I can for a supply through the winter.

They are a traditional berry here in the Uk, used in crumbles, desserts and jam. They are less used these days as they are pretty sour and probably not for the modern sweet tooth, but I grew up eating them off the bush (beware of the thorns lol).

It's beastly hot here.  Simply moving groups of goats to various pastures and simple chores and i'm back in soaked.  Thank heavens for air conditioning.  We are fortunate to have our solar panels working away on long hot sunny days so still no electric bills.  It is supposed to cool down tomorrow so i can get back to preparing for winter in relative comfort.

Maybe iced coffee?

Hugs,

Good morning 

 

I’m on my second cup. Pop up showers or storms expected today.  Then cooler weather starting Wednesday, yeah!  Planning a trip to visit our son and daughter-in-law in mid August.  And our daughter will be here the end of this week for a couple days.  Been a busy summer for sure.

      It’s the handmaidens tale in real life. Be sure your bug out bags are packed and ready for the jump to Canada. Cause it could really happen with this guy in charge.

      They can get behind him because many of them feel perfectly fine persecuting trans folks. I have run into this attitude exactly when I have been to locations that log cabin folks dominate. I’ve heard nothing short of murderous comments about transgender people. It’s absolutely chilling.

      Good afternoon! In case you were laughing at or wondering, #ThisInstagramHoaxIsStillAHoax   It happens every year, and tons of people still fall for it.

      Sorry just answering your question. 🤷🏻‍♀️
    • Charlize
      Sorry you went through that therapy and abuse.  That being said we are responding to a post in the forum for welcoming new members.  Perhaps you might want to start a new thread?   Hugs,   Charlize

      Im not sure. Back in those days I was not dressing. I was extremely anti trans and believed 100% that there was something wrong with me that needed to be fixed. This was in my early to mid+ 20s after 4 years of conversion therapy and regular physical abuse as a child. At that point it was working on me. I am sure that I didn’t want to transition at that time. At all. I think I was very clear about how I felt and about believing it was only ptsd related due to being molested by my father and his friends when I was very young. Although I was very honest about my cross dressing as well. Back then I was literally a hot mess incapable of looking at this part of myself in any sort of reasonable way. Thanks mom. 😡 god I hate my family. Sorry off topic.

      " The Trump administration’s continued assaults on LGBTQ rights are nothing short of breathtaking. And yet, Trump’s supporters who don’t want to acknowledge this aspect of the administration find ways to bury this part of his record in the chaos."   That says a lot to me.  How can those "log cabin" folks be behind him.   It hurts!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Welcome Kriss.    There is no reason to decide about transition.  Many here live part time  or dress occasionally if at all.  We have different paths which may change at times. M<y time here with others helped me find my path.  Therapy was a good part of that journey as well.   Hope you find the same support.    Kirsten could those 4 therapists have interpreted what you said and how you were presenting yourself as wanting to transition despite your not seeing it or wanting it. I know it took me time to even think i might consider transition despite spending as much times i could without being out as myself.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Greetings!  I finally find myself at a point in my life where I can try to settle some of the gender issues that have caused so many issues over the years. I'm biologically male, but don't always feel that way. It seems language has finally caught up with what I've always felt.  Genderfluid is the best descriptor I've been able to find for me. I have days where I feel very male. Other days very female and feminine.  It has not proven to be predictable,  which is currently my greatest source of anxiety.  I've had days where I feel great. Perfectly at home in my skin. Other days when I look in the mirror I don't recognize the face staring back. All I want to do on these days is crossdress and be as female as possible. Sometimes this switch happens mid day. Which is the worst.  I've started shaving, as body hair is a major source of discomfort on what I'll call "fem" days.  I've been playing with cloths to try and ease the feelings of being "off" on these days. I can dress around my house, which is great. But doesn't help when I'm at work and can't change or I'm stuck wearing my male cloths.  I don't have a desire to transition. I just need some guidance on the best ways to handle the back and forth.  Also, if someone knows of a better description than genderfluid,  I'm all ears.

      I just do non gender specific workouts. I use Beachbody on demand. And my waist has feminized a lot. Hips are a no go but my butt has grown as well. Thinking that’s mostly gene related tho. It probably all is honestly. I don’t ever get misgendered anymore, so I must look pretty feminine. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Here’s a pic.  But it’s a great idea to have a health and fitness plan. Being healthy is just so important in general. Especially when you’re on hrt. 
    • Josie Beth
      Here’s some of them            These took me a while to find. It’s just a matter of scrolling through thousands of results and ignoring the fluff videos. I’m seeing some results but admittedly need to focus on the glute muscles that wrap around the hips the most and do more twists. Getting a broomstick on the weekend for sure.

      Hi all, I've been considering and looking for a good exercise routine. I used to do weights to build muscle but now I'm looking for a routine more fitting. I've never heard of trans women exercise routines before. That would be something I would be interested in. Can someone share any pointers or links rules permitting?    Big thanks

      Those new pronouns have grown to quite a list and are a little more creative than my mind takes in quickly these days.  Another one I had to get used to was the term "Nibling" for a young child of a sibling being raised by a grandmother who was the mother of an Enby person I know.  There are a couple of Nordic languages that have even more relationships in single words.  One of my Danish friends (a Dansker) can talk about their uncles and relate the uncle to their parent with different pronouns. ( MorBror vs FarBror is the closest I can come)

      I cannot open this article without my computer's anti-virus kicking up a blue fuss.  I agree with the headline however.

      Caution -- Any tape is going to result in hair removal the first time in a very unpleasant way, and is a nuisance when you have to go to the rest room also in an uncomfortable way as well.
