Hello people. One week from today Christmas will be over. It's like planning for a wedding. The unending lists, the baking, the gift buying, the plans, the decorations, the guest list, for what seems like an eternity and then POOF..... it's over in a day. But the spirit and good feelings of the season start before the day and continue after.
Today, Saturday, while munching on garlic bologna and chocolate, my husband is tearing apart another room and washing walls and floors. This is why his pant number stays the same and mine continues to increase. I previously mentioned the so-called skinny jeans.
After trying many brands (not that many come in a 34" inseam) I finally found them. Surprisingly, they are extremely comfortable. Some were half way up my rear and when I sat, the tight stretch would pull them down like worn out pantyhose. Others were not long enough. Of all places, I found them at Walmart. Kohl's carries Lee brand in Long but these fit a little better and are much longer. Lots of stretch, not like other denim, the cut is bigger in hips and thighs. Now all I have to do is find a
tent tunic to cover those curvy fit areas. My legs are like tree trunks, with large knots at the knee and ankle area. I bought knee high boots to wear with them. Between the tunic and the boots, several inches of my new skinny jeans will show. I'm just tired of the looser and larger leg jeans that actually make me look even larger. I've never purchased boots and special tops just to be able to wear something you barely see. My first pair of skinny jeans at age 64. Will I wear them or change right before exiting the door?
I haven't finished my patriotic Santa, don't know if I will. Still haven't crawled out of my slump, but would like to start this little simple sampler. Sally Fiske is still waiting to be completed and I'm so close! Maybe I will try to do one half hour a day.
Carole is still not up to par but much better. I was happy to find this gigantic pill box at the Dollar Store for my chewable gummy vitamins and CoQ10. They fit, but they dry out in a few days and are like chewing on a tire. I so envy people that can swallow pills.
We made Harvest Soup and Split Pea with smoked ham hocks, both were very good. But here I sit with garlic bologna and chocolate. Yes I'm weird. Maybe that's why I lost followers.
So I will be back Sunday with the pony box winner. I guess I should start entering the names today and just keep the page open to add more as needed. If you can't leave a comment, please email me (link at top right) to be added. Until then, enjoy your weekend and stay safe.
Thanks for visiting.
