Herself: She gets to go as a half price senior. Yes, long pants to hide the compression stockings, sensible shoes, layers, a backpack with water, ibuprofen, and we can eat across the street. Oh, sometimes I feel appallingly old. But Oh how I love taking photos there.
Reading: Food magazines to inspire me to cook light, tiny portions of new thinking food in ten minutes. I know, I am dreaming.
Balance: Working at the Cancer Society Thrift store. BCBG dresses, shirts, and pants donated in huge boxes. More fancy stuff from other big designers arrived from a La Jolla store. Absolutely amazed at the beautiful fabrics……but I’d worn some of those designs in 1963 and thought they made me look fat then. Found a small Samsonite rolling suitcase for 2 bucks……totally worn out. The department head that owned it used it so much that the black handle had turned white. Found some antique Christmas Ornaments too. I spent six bucks……….oh, the guilt of it all she says with the back of her hand on her forehead.
