Another 6 mile walk around the lake for me this morning. It didn't feel cold out but there were patches of ice around and I nearly fell a few times. It was also a bit foggy in places. Quite a few people were out there this morning which was surprising because lately there's been very few. I was just about home when Cheryl called and we had a nice chat while I walked the last 1/2 mile or so home.
Well today I went shopping for a bathing suit which was not a pleasant experience. I hate buying bathing suits. I must have tried on a hundred of them - well maybe not that many, but it sure felt like it. I ended up in a store called Everything But Water. The young girl was very very helpful and she spent lots of time with me. She was also very nice and knew what she was talking about. If it wasn't for her I don't think I would have bought a bathing suit today.
This is what I ended up with. It's just okay, nothing that I'm really crazy about. I'll never be happy because my body is just not what it once was. If there is one thing that makes you feel old is having to look at yourself in a bathing suit! How depressing. And those trying on rooms are just awful with the fluorescent lighting where you see yourself from all angles in the never ending row of mirrors.
That's enough depressing thoughts. At least I feel young at heart, I'm healthy and happy! :-)
I also bought this cover up and hat. I love the hat!Are you wondering why I needed a bathing suit now?
We are going on a cruise in the not too distant future. :-)
I had a late lunch when I got home at 2:30. It's almost 4 and I haven't done a thing around the house. I don't feel like doing anything either so when I get done on the computer I'm going to read until Ken comes home from work.
I should think about making something for supper but don't feel like doing that either. I'm hoping Ken will want to take me out to dinner again. :-)
I hope your Monday is a happy one for you.
People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you'll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow.
