The Times, They are a changin

The picture is of Blair Eadie at Atlantic-Pacific blog. And she is wearing things that are great street style. However, I was born a long time ago. And things like in the photo were our play clothes. Baseball shirt and torn up jeans. Play clothes. Made a little more up to date with animal print high heel shoes. Is it any wonder I get confused. Blair has thousands of followers and wears gorgeous things. And she has a way of creating an imaginative and classy look. With the clothes I used to wear out to play. The times.....

A constant adjustment

Life is often interesting. And worrisome. And difficult. And boring. And fun. I think I'm in need of some fantasy time. I mean it. I need some time to live in a fantasy land. I've been overwhelmed by life. Money out, no money in. It seems that every time I decide I'm doing better, something happens. This time it was the computer. It quit. And it's funny but I lived through it.

We have one computer in the house. We both spend a lot of time on the computer doing one thing or another. We have a sort of routine. It is comforting in my old age to have a routine. But the computer is just another in a list of expensive repairs that have been done this year. I got lucky. It was fixed without a huge bill.

We talked. Since the computer was down, B and I had a long and fun conversation. Then we watched TV together. You know, it was actually a good thing.

But back to my comforting routine. I'm finding it's time to break out of the routine again. I've gotten back into the habit of not taking pics of myself. I look in the mirror in the bathroom when I've showered and dressed and I'm both pleased and angry. I'm pleased because I have some fairly nice things to wear. At least they look OK to me. And I'm angry because I haven't lost weight and I want to. I find that I eat without noticing. I don't plan meals. That isn't a good idea for a diabetic or for a person needing to drop pounds. And when I look at pictures of me I see a whole other thing. For some reason I don't look at all good no matter what I wear. Well it's time to do pics again so I'm more aware of what others see. It's harder to fool myself if I post a pic.

Yes, that's it. I'll take some pics.

Just in case

I am truly thankful for any comments I get and I accidentally lost one from Kathleen. I am so sad.
