I spent my leisure time doing a lot of stuff that I didn't want to do. I got a mammogram, a bone density test, my teeth cleaned, my eyes checked, painstakingly kept my flowers watered, purged clothes that mysteriously shrunk in my closet, and I got a facelift. OK, that's not true. Let's just say it was wishful thinking.
Or maybe I just wanted to see if you actually read the text on my blog and not just look at the pics
Next time you'll read the text.
The last few weeks also held some very enjoyable moments,as well.
I took photography lessons. Yup, that's me. Not only did I get a faux facelift, but I also lightened my hair and lost 40 lbs. I told you I was a compulsive overachiever.
I also took photoshop lessons, which I think is as difficult as learning brain surgery. At least for me, it is. It's worth it, though. Who needs plastic surgery when you've got Photoshop?
I don't know whether I shared a family secret with you. After grooming Chili for a couple of years, her groomer felt it would be best for all if Chili found a new groomer. I felt like I was at the principal's office and she told me that my kid was the school bully.
After numerous phone calls and a gentle touch of bribery, I found Heather who grooms in her van. The minute I met Chili's next
My money was on Heather all along! As you can see, Chili was bursting with enthusiasm over her new 'do.
A magical afternoon was spent with my Texas friend, Sarah from Hyacinths for the Soul and her dear friend, Phyllis, who lives in this charming home on the Cape.
Phyllis and Sarah met each other years ago through the Quimper Club International. Phyllis' home was so beautiful that it gave me heart palpitations. I'm sure Sarah will have great photos so check out her blog periodically.
I spent another fabulous evening with my book club buddies at an exquisite waterfront home. We all enjoyed this book by Sejal Badani.
Cozy Little Kitchen
Nancy, the hostess with the mostess, served delicious dips and deserts and in between presented these mouthwatering sandwiches that were the hit of the night. They melted in my mouth like buttah.
The Mister surprised me with dinner reservations at my favorite restaurant in NYC. We also saw the best Broadway play that I've ever seen. Hint: it wasn't Hamilton. More on that in a future post.
This is exactly how it rolled when I wrote my first post.
It hasn't changed much, either.
