I am jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. That is basically all I wear. In the winter just change out t-shirt for sweatshirt. I don't wear shorts any more. I could - the legs still look pretty good - but I just don't. Once in a while I will wear a pair of capris but not often.
I do have a couple nice dresses for those special events and a couple to just feel free in! I have blazers to add to jeans or dress pants and also sweaters.
I go barefoot MOST of the time. Yes, I wear flip-flops outside when I have to in the summer and I have slippers and a pair of comfy slides for outdoors in the winter (for around the house). I do have dress shoes - they just aren't worn often.
I love simple foods. I can be happy eating just about anything. I can eat a salad and be happy, I can eat a plate of veggies and be happy, I can have a bologna sandwich and be happy and I can eat biscuits and jelly and be happy. It really doesn't matter to me. I don't have to cook if I don't want to any more. Just me and I have no rules. YES, I wish I still had someone to cook for. I miss hearing "what's for dinner tomorrow?" right after dinner tonight!!!!! That was a comical moment each evening.
But now there are no rules - so if I want chips and salsa I will have that.
I hardly ever wear make-up any more. I always used to put on some make-up each day. Now not so much. Shoot, even when I go out now - no one can see the bottom of my face!!! I will do my eyes up - but that is about it.
I have NEVER had a professional mani or pedi. If I get polish - I do it myself.
I haven't used a blow dryer or a curling iron in years and years. My hair is short and I let it dry naturally. I run a brush through it as it dries and that is all it takes. I think I still have both of those things around here - but not sure where.
When I work in the yard - I wear a head band to keep sweat from my eyes. It helps a lot. I also have my homemade hankies with me - just to wipe sweat and I am one of those people who gets a runny nose when I sweat!
Headbands (sweatbands) always at the ready
So I have a cheap pair of total covering glasses that go over glasses - kind of like people wear when having eye surgery. I think I paid a $1 at a yard sale.
Most of the time, I now wear a $13 pair of Foster Grant's right OVER my glasses. They fit perfectly and unless you are close you'd never know. If someone thinks they look goofy (over others) - I don't care. They work for me!
I haven't bought much new for my house or changed much in years. I have thought about it - was actually in the mood for some new furniture and then everything closed. Kind of lost my oomph for it now! I will change things eventually - until then I am totally cool with what I have.
I listen to the oldie goldie's ONLY! That is my favorite music - the stuff I listened too as a youngster. I can't tell you the last time I listened to a new or modern group (unless maybe as background on a TV show). Most stuff I have heard is awful, repeating the same thing over and over, can't be understood and they all sound the same!
Just give me that old time rock n roll!!!!
Give me my fur babies, my flowers, my nature, my garden and my little house and I am quite content.
There is much to be said for contentment!!!!
I haven't changed much about my life at all through all the stuff going on in the world. No, I don't see family like I would like, and I do wear a mask when out (still mandatory in my county) - but that is about it.
I basically live a quiet and simple life. Nothing has changed.
So there you have ME! Low maintenance and simple. I like it that way. I am pretty happy - considering being alone. I am content.
If you like what you see - great. If you don't - I don't give a bahooey!!!!!!
I am me. I think I am still a gal of the 50's and 60's. That will never change.
Be happy with who you are! Do what makes YOU happy!
Live your best life!
Plant the flowers and ENJOY the flowers - nature is beautiful and so are YOU!
