About Me

My photo
Four years into widowhood, after one year of incredible happiness and nearly 14 years of single blessedness. Have given up perfect manicures and pretty hands in order to resume playing the soprano recorder and to see if I can figure out how to play bluegrass banjo. Singing in the shower. Still really, *really* love to knit!

Tuesday is for Trivia

Middlest wondered what color my nails are.



They go with this. Ignore the back-fat, which is diminishing by the day. Look at the knot!



And here you have the whole enchilada. Or maybe the hot tamale?



And LittleBit the Glamour Queen.



Nothing exciting in Knitting Land yesterday. Another half inch on the Stripedy Stocking. I think I might begin Middlest’s socks today.

But now I have to dash over to the gastroenterologist’s office for my pre-colonoscopy interview with the nurse practitioner. Yes, there is a gallon of that awful cleansing jollop in my near future. It’s been three years since my first exam, and since they found benign polyps and removed them, I have to go back every three years. Looking ahead, that’s approximately 13 more gallons of that swill to look forward to.

Oh well, it beats the alternative.

So nice to put a face to you! Hope all goes well with the test.

Oh, Mom. You are looking fabulous, seriously. The nails are really pretty but more subdued than I was expecting for you. LOL.

And you look HAPPY too. I just want to reach through the screen and hug you to pieces. But I'll settle for a comfortable hug once I get back. I love you Mom! <3

Pretty! Beautiful color.

You have such a good attitude about the colonoscopy I will suppress my 'ugh'. Oops, slipped out. I hope everything goes well.

(that is where I got the toothbrush boxes - the Dollar Store)
