two thumbs (and eyes) up...


My Sweet Hubby (MSH) and I are actually going out on a dinner date in a bit. Yippee, Fri-Yay! We haven’t had an evening out in many, many weeks. I realize there are some peeps who think every day is a vacation for us—since we’re retired. That’s simply not accurate. We are busy BUSY 17/7. At least six days a week. Doing what? Well, I'm not sure I can account for every second of every day. By 5:00 o'lock p.m.? We're pooped. We still get excited about simple things like lunch out. A new dinner spot. A night or two away. Even if it's close by.

I’m not going to fib: We do love our Friday nights (And Saturday. Sunday. Monday through Thursday.) at our country casa. On the couch. Watching TV we’ve recorded (Blacklist. Designated Survivor.) Neither of us does great with commercials. No patience. If we can’t locate a show that we both want to watch together? MSH heads to our bedroom and we watch our preferred picks alone. (Don’t feel sorry for us. Truly. Don’t!)

Occasionally we do watch live TV. If we must. There are actually some quite good ads (Witty. Thoughtful. Touching.). Also some quite horrid ones. YUCK.

Tonight, we’re going rogue. Getting adventurous. We’re sampling a new restaurant in Granbury. On The Square. Yes. True: It’s going to be an early din-din. We’ll be home by 9:00. At the latest. No apologies coming from moi. We are who/what we are: Oldish. Proud Senior Citizens! (Winky. Wink.)

Thinking about changing out of my camo pants and 15-year-old t-shirt into something semi-nice-ish, and freshening my makeup (I’ve been up since 5:30.), reminds me of the new mascara I purchased a few weeks ago for myself and TLC. Y’all KNOW I had to try it. Look at the case? Animal print. Duh. No way I could pass this up. (You must admit I’ve done pretty dadgum good this year—so far—with my determination to cut back on mascara purchases.)


I haven’t used this yet—(I’d just opened my favourite mascara a few days before I purchased this.)—but TLC has experimented with it and she LIKES IT! A lot. A LOT. TWO THUMBS UP.

There’s her recommendation. For what it’s worth!

Here’s hoping each of you has a WONDERFUL Weekend—wherever in the World you are! Go somewhere new! Try something new! Do something different! BE SAFE. Be healthy. BE HAPPY!

Smooches and Hugs, Silly Friends…
