Gravity, thou art a fickle bitch.

 

For women, it’s an inescapable fact.

We age… and things start to head south.

One day you wake up and the girls aren’t as perky as they used to be.

And before you know it?

You’re searching the jeans section for the ones that include butt lifters.

Spanx……

Minimizers….

Over the shoulder boulder holders….

The entire foundation undergarment industry is built on defying female gravity.

And because I’m over 40? (Okay, way over… now shut up)

I’ve got plenty that’s starting the downward descent…

So when I was cruising Bed Bath and Beyond the other day and saw this?

It really ticked me off.

WTF!

Now I have to start worrying that my earrings are going to sag?

It’s enough to make me turn in my woman card.

A quiet Christmas – 2018.

 

Okay, so I was sick and hacking up a lung and it wasn’t all that quiet.

But it was peaceful.

And full of prime rib….

Which I manged to cook to rare and juicy perfection… even with a splitting sinus headache that was making my ears pop.

For the first time in years we stayed home for the holiday, so I did a little outside decorating….. and along with wreaths and candles in the front windows there were snowflakes running down the side.

Which looked rather disembodied in the dark.

It’s the first time I’ve tried these battery operated, on a timer things.

Pro? They come on and offย  by themselves. Con? They only stay lit for 6 hours.

I also did up the barn.

Trees on the porch…

Holly lights in the windows.

I love those things. Have had them for over 20 years and they still work… kind of like my husband.

(I need two more for the front so if you ever find any? Let me know… because I can’t.)

The trees look white from far away, but have a little color as well.

Anyway, we looked slightly festive… at least from the outside.

Inside? All I managed was some Xmas place mats and a Charlie Brown tree…. which my sweet husband put a present under.

Even though we agreed not to exchange.

He did well, with a lovely handmade gold and silver bracelet….

Which I had to chuckle at …. because 2 years ago, he gave me this lovely handmade gold and silver bracelet.

Same designer, similar style. He’s nothing if not consistent!

But hey, worn together?

Ooh la la!

I love it.

Hope your Christmas was filled with wonderful things as well…..
