The 4th

I shopped a little yesterday. I found a lime green cotton pullover with a scooped neckline that looks the best on me and I bought earrings to match. I haven't done that 4evah. I remember those days though. A new something to wear, a bracelet and earrings to go with it, a pair of shoes to compliment.....but oh my..when did  I quit?

It must have been around the time I decided I had worked enough, had enough of the job related stress, and finally feeling I actually deserved it. Sometimes I miss having a job; then I think about tearing myself away from my leisurely days and I put it in reverse and get back in the house.

I do keep up with my grooming. I try to do hair and makeup every day. I feel I owe it to the husband. He didn't meet and marry a slob. He doesn't deserve to look at one everyday either. Besides that, I do it for myself. I always feel much better with a little eyeliner and some lipstick. I've always been a fragrance addict and a little spritz of my favorite perfume finishes off my morning routine.

I'm going shopping for earrings and bracelets to go with the other clothes I have bought recently. Just a few baubles, nothing expensive.

Carrie, the all girlie granddaughter, appreciates and mentions the accessories. She loves to shop and considers herself  a fashionnista.

Spell check just give me a warning on the "fashionnista" but offered no corrections for it. It stays and I don't obsess over it.

I'm outta here for the day. Have a Happy 4th. we are having a barbeque today; baby back ribs, pork chops, corn on the cob, cole slaw, butter/lima beans and French bread. Yum. I'm looking forward to dinner!


  1. I just have to ask...what are butter lima beans? Do I need the recipe?

  2. Joan, the husband MIXED two different kinds of beans in the pot. He used dried lima beans and dried butter beans.
