About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of three. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and will have been married for 57 years this February.

My new glasses are in and now I can sing my own rendition of Johnny Nash song, I can see clearly now...
I can see clearly now the rain is back.
I can see obstacles in my way... mmm  mm  mm mmm...

Yes, it's raining here instead of snowing on our first winter's night and the shortest daylight of the year and we survived the end of the world...

Someone from my followers wanted to see my new glasses and I thought that I would model them for all of you. Yes, I'll be brave and show you what I look like after taking off  my toque when I got back from my chores at the barn. I have a love/hate relationship with the said toque. It keeps my head warm which I love and it makes me look twerppy when I take it off because my hair gets all flat.

As you can see Miss Clairol doesn't make any money off of me, that's for sure.
I can't blame the lack of Miss Clairol for my wrinkles though. Wow, they are multiplying fast. I know that I don't get enough beauty sleep lately. Heck, I hardly get a good night sleep anymore. Sometimes less than 6 hours a night.

I've been  playing with my camera again.
I set it to night setting and it depends at which angle the lens points out, sometimes it flashes a tiny bit and sometime it doesn't.

Is that close enough  for you to see my wrinkles? Wrinkles are something that is hard to avoid when you get your old age pension. It's a conspiracy with the government. You got to look old to get money for old age. Kids like wrinkled grandmothers, right?

How about that, it didn't flashed this time and I was looking directly in the camera lens in the bathroom  mirror. I'm trying my best to smile without cracking the mirror.

Now to be fair, I'll include this last photo of my new clip on Polaroid sun lenses.  I just hold them by  the edges on each side and pull slightly and it is spring loaded  and they clip right on just like that, for $30.

I ran into my next door neighbour this evening on my way to the farm to feed the calves and we chatter for a few minutes. She had no plans for Christmas as she was going to be alone. We've only met in passing on the road or when I work in my gardens. Always too busy to invite her in. Well I invited her to have Christmas dinner with me and my husband on Christmas Day and she was so pleased.  I cannot let her eat alone when I live just next door.

My wish is that you all have someone to spend some time with at Christmas even if it's with just a furry friend. Christmas is not about present but it's about love.

Merry Christmas my blogger friends.
