No makeup look – Lately a lot of celebrities are sporting a “no makeup” look. I was interested because that’s me almost all the time. Since I’ve retired there is no point in clogging my pores. They don’t wear eye makeup but their skin looks perfect – no discoloration or splotchiness. Hmmm…perhaps if you have laser treatments, makeup is optional. I also noticed that most had patent leather lips. Had to be lip gloss of some sort. No one is born like that. #falseadvertising
Eau de French fry – We went out to eat twice this week. Both times the food was good but the cooking exhaust fans weren’t working well enough. Both times I left smelling like a French fry. Not that I don’t like fries but I’d rather eat them than wear them. My fake leather purse also smells like fries. #pee-eau
Time capsule – I found a 1981 edition of Time magazine in my cat file. It was interesting to read. There were articles on the old Reagan era politics and ads for typewriters, booze and cigarettes. Lot of cigarette ads. Gosh those stud muffins were gorgeous! Aside from the shoulder pads, I liked the fashions better. The colors were prettier although you can’t beat today’s fabrics. Sadly the magazine is getting recycled. #oldtimesyes
Performance review time – There was a mouse in the mousetrap. Humane mousetrap, of course. He was re-homed to the neighbor’s yard. I knew there was a mouse in the house because I personally caught one about a month or so ago. They come here in pairs and we hadn’t caught the other one yet. Morgan (our mouser cat) was interested but not working hard enough. We will have to talk about this. She has one job (two, if you count being cute) and she’s not getting it done. #sleepingonthejob
Maybe it’s time – We have started the fall clean up and prepping the pond for winter. The weather is mild but one day it won’t be. For me it’s a sad time. It’s not like opening everything up. There is a lot of work and hard decisions. Pull stuff out now while the weather is pleasant or wait until it is freaking cold to work outside. #needacrystalball
So how was your week?
