24/7
Saturday, August 13, 2016      22 comments

What do I wear 24/7? Two things. My hair. And my body. Anything else I "add" -- clothes, makeup, shoes, hats etc. -- is superimposed upon the "base": the hair and the body. I'm really frugal. But not when it comes to h... Read more
Blush
Friday, August 12, 2016      20 comments

Another daily treat is, of course, deciding what to wear . . . from a closet where everything fits!! I hate to admit it *blush* at my advanced age and wrinklitude: but vanity is a huge component of day to day motivation in the MAINtenance batt... Read more
A Treat Each Day!
Wednesday, August 10, 2016      20 comments

DH makes a point of giving himself a treat every day. No matter how busy he is. No matter what else he has to do. He plans it. It might be 15 minutes just hitting balls at the golf course. Or listening to a funny video blog on his... Read more
Foxes!
Tuesday, August 09, 2016      25 comments

Right in our front garden! Charlie, DH and I were sitting on the verandah reading the paper and drinking coffee (except for Charlie) when a large red fox went running diagonally right across the yard! And then, about 10 minutes later... Read more

POTATO CHIP STORY!!
Sunday, August 07, 2016      29 comments

Yesterday I'd gone to the gym (after an egg white omelette breakfast) and then decided to head directly to the local outlet mall. Looking for dark leopard print ankle boots preferably OR in the alternative shoes . . . with my size 10 feet I kn... Read more

Decisions
Saturday, August 06, 2016      19 comments

My (somewhat edited) comment today on a Sparkie friend's page (she's trying to make a business decision): The awful daring of a moment's surrender which an age of prudence can never retract. By this and only this we have existed. (yup, T... Read more
Watering!
Friday, August 05, 2016      18 comments

Front porch planters have been rehydrated . . . no kidding, this is one of the driest summers I can remember. And I've gotta remember to rehydrate me too (yup, coffee counts . . . ). ... Read more
Early Soup!
Thursday, August 04, 2016      17 comments

Had left over soup from Wednesday's batch last week but used up the last bowlful yesterday: and so I got up early and made more . . . . yes, even in hot hot hot weather I still enjoy hot soup (although sometimes I do make a chilled gazpacho etc.... Read more
The Elusive Trivia A Student Award
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      16 comments

Nope, not in July either. I was teetering on the brink, maintaining 90% correct, right up until the end of the month and then whap whap whap whap: a whole series of questions wrong wrong wrong. This month is NOT looking good either -... Read more
At the Beach . . .
Tuesday, August 02, 2016      23 comments

Yesterday I got to the gym AND to the beach (wearing my new bathing suit! checking out tattoos of course in both places) AND to the golf course: nine holes at the very best time of the day, lots of beautiful slanting rays of sunshine illuminatin... Read more
Correction: I DO Have Tattoos!
Monday, August 01, 2016      24 comments

How could I have "forgotten" about them? In 2009, four pinpoint markers for radiation therapy for breast cancer. And I hated them so much when I got them (NO CHOICE, obviously). One of them shows when I'm wearing even a very moderately low cu... Read more
Did You Tattoo??
Sunday, July 31, 2016      20 comments

I don't have any. (And I don't have any piercings. And I don't colour my hair, which is beginning to silver: but after all, I'm 65 years old -- so it's to be expected). However, even though I'm too prissy and too cheap and too vain to ha... Read more
"Everyone is Entitled to Their Opinion"
Saturday, July 30, 2016      18 comments

We hear that expression pretty often. And (ignoring the grammar for a moment), what do you think? Is it true? Not (and yup, I'm fully aware of the irony) in my opinion!! What's an opinion? One definition says an opinion is "a belief or... Read more
