My recovery dresses (see yesterday's blog) arrived. Not only do they fit, but look really cute. Of course, this is for function, not for winning a beauty contest. (smiling) Have a fun weekend. "Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but ... Read more
Dress? What's a Dress?
Saturday, April 17, 2021      28 comments

A sweet SP friend suggested that I use dresses/skirts instead of pants as it would be simpler after hip surgery. It made me wonder when the last time was that I even wore a dress, and I know any that I owned have been donated long ago. B... Read more

Yes, I've watched so many videos that I feel that I can teach a class myself on the aspects of pre- and post- surgery. (smiling) No wonder I'm overwhelmed. There reaches a point of saturation in learning, and I feel I've reached that. All tha... Read more

Saturday, April 10, 2021      25 comments

Inquiring minds have asked me that, so here it is. It was fun, wonderful and surreal after being unable to dine in over a year. You sometimes truly don't know what you have until it's gone - like freedom, for instance. The restaurant was ... Read more
