With the hot temps we have been experiencing here in NoAla, I have to get up at six, get dressed and out the door to get in some early morning steps. I do enjoy the cool of the early morning but by my second lap, I am "glowing". As Julia Sugarbaker said on Designing Women, "Southern ladies do not perspire, they glow!!". I also like to walk early in the morning to keep people from being frightened by my white legs!! I saw a post on Facebook that said, "It"s not PALE it's PORCELAIN and I'm ROCKING IT!!" That is my story and I am sticking to it. I would have been right at home in the Old South where porcelain skin was the sign of beauty. Today in our tan mad world, I stick out like a sore thumb. I have tried the self tanners etc but I cannot stand the smell and invariably I have orange streaks in unexpected places. Not good. I am going to embrace the Porcelain...it works for Lady Mary on Downton Abbey so I will emulate her!!
I have to share some of my favorite walking shoes....Skechers. I wore Skechers flip flops on Vacay and I never had a blister or a foot pain at the end of a day of walking.
Speaking of walking, I was able to check out the movie, Wild, from the library. It is a movie about the book by the same name, written by Cheryl Strayed. I enjoyed the book about a young women who walks the Pacific Crest Trail to deal with grief and loss. Let me just say that the book was better, as is almost always the case! I would not recommend the movie...it was rated R and some of the scenes of her old life were disturbing. So that is some free advice this morning!!
Thanks for all the nice omments on my cross stitch. I started a Thanksgiving sampler yesterday.
I might just get it done and have it framed in time for the big feast day!!
