Have any of you over a certain age,(have no clue what age that is) ever had someone pay you a compliment and just when you are feeling so puffy, they add "for your age?" Instant deflation!!!! A friend of mine and I were having this same conversation earlier. The doctor says to me,"Boy you are in good health. ------for your age".
My beautician says, "WOW, you have great hair!---- for your age."
My grandson Seth, who is stylish and dapper,(he'll laugh at that description) says to me one day. "Mamaw you are one of the best dressed women I know." Man am I feeling good. Puffed up a little. My 23 year old Grandson thinks I dress well!!!!! Yeah, you got it. Then he adds,"for your age". Now I have you wondering, don't I? How many times have you heard this? Last week end my Grandson in law, Ryan, the orthopod, says to me, "You know you have really good posture." I waited and waited. He never said it. Not at all. I Love him.
Well I have been working in the house. Actually, I had to work in the house. It was a total mess. I was hosting dominoes Thursday and they all have good eyes, (for their age)lol so I had to clean and cook. don't know what happened, but I got motivated. I have eye surgery again this week, so I had to get it done. I did my porch. I even tweaked a bit.
I got this pot of flowers for my birthday and I love them.
I even did some tweaking in the house. I love my new floor cloth. It makes me want an even larger one. Sandi(Daybreak Place) and I were going to make a large one. She came over we were going to work on them, but that was when we got the results of Amanda's biopsy and we didn't touch them. We both still have the canvas and may one weekend this late fall we will start on them.
My friend Carol brought me this onion bottle from Williamsburg.
Thank you for coming Through My Back Door, where life is good.
