I am in Amherst, MA at a friends house. He is having surgery in the morning and needed someone with him and his spouse is recooperating in a nursing home from pneumonia.
I had a relaxing 4th of July, I grilled out for the first time in my life! Yes, 50 and using a gas grill for the first time. I have always been afraid of them…the grill was given to me by a friend. I am so excited! I plan to have a summer full of grilled veges, meats and buns… I hope its not your buns I’m toasting! 🙂
I slept in today, have learned to unplug the phone entirely, not just turn the volume down. This heat and humidity is playing havoc with my fibromyalgia, but I won’t bore you with my whining, besides… I’m sick of hearing myself, I’d rather not think about it.
I am being good about staying out of the sun, particularly because I have an appointment with my oncologist in Boston next week. With the gene mutation I have, I am at high risk for melanoma…. so…. I’m sharing this because a friend suggested this spray bottle tan which I just applied. Now, I’m sleeping on a salsa colored sofa, so if I wake up orange tomorrow, I really won’t know until I get up and off the couch and stand near the white wall….But no worries, when it comes to seasons I am Fall, and it happens to be my favorite season, so I’ll be okay with orange…
One wonderful thing about turning 50 (Did I tell you I finally received my AARP Card this week? It’s about time! Back to the wonderful thing of being 5 decades or half a century old… I laugh at myself more and I don’t care what others think of me.. I’m entitled to be myself, whatever or whomever I decide that may be, and if others don’t like it, that’s okay! 🙂 So much wasted time worrying about “fitting in”. So if tomorrow I wake up orange, I’ll feel like an oompa lumpa, but a 5’11 one! 🙂
I hope your 4th was delightful. xx
