Okay my friends - it's Friday again. I have been thinking. I had a gal blogger friend write me and she suggested I take some time for myself. Have a me day once in awhile. Thanks Arlene. I think she is right. A Chatty/Sandie day.
She suggested for me "to drive down a road I have never been. Put on your favorite music and dance like you did when you were a teenager. Make plans to go to a city where you have never been. Bring an adventurous friend who won't tell tales. Make a Banana Split and don't feel guilty of the waste if you can't finish it. Likewise, if you do finish it, smile wide and don't feel guilty about the waist."
Well about ten years ago I was starting to do that. I never went way wild - but I would try to do some new things I had never done before. Massages, nails, hair color, I would go and visit different restaurants with friends - I even started my blog!
I admit the longer I have gone the less and less I am doing for myself - again. I have so much going on these days - I am starting to take life to seriously. I can feel it. Maybe I should take a look again about putting in some time for me - doing something new.
Now of course I don't mean go hog-wild, but knowing myself I don't think I will do that! lol
Do you do things just for yourself? And if so,
I asked Nancy if I could borrow this picture - I saw it on her blog and I just felt thrilled when I saw it.
Wouldn't that be a great spot to start going and seeing what is along the way?
I wonder what is at the other end?
Isn't this the most gorgeous photo - the heart and my favorite color?
“Every now and again take a good look at something not made with hands- a mountain, a star, the turn of a stream. There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all, the assurance that you are not alone in the world.”
I can see God here - can you? Gorgeous!
A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an earring.
This man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow and is curious about his sudden change in 'fashion sense.'
The man walks up to him and says, 'I didn't know you were into earrings.'
Don't make such a big deal, it's only an earring,' he replies sheepishly.
His friend falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to say, "So, how long have you been wearing one?"
"Ever since my wife found it in my car."
(I always wondered how this trend got started.)
Remember to tell me what you are going to do this weekend that is just for fun?
Disco says hello!
Love, Chatty Crone and friends . . .
