My little red tether is my anchor in running with my friends. A beautiful guide dog has been my tether/anchor in mobility and independence for 17 years: 1. Pantera 2. Cricket, and now my beautiful 3. Georgina (Georgie). A life of family and friends is my joy and anchor in life.

Love my mirror

My mirror is usually Steve - The conversation goes something like this --Steve, how do I look? His usual response is something like 'its not hard to decorate a rose' or another cliche which I say -- no seriously. Then its his responsibility to give me a quick overview ... looks good, there's a spot on your skirt, make-up not rubbed in, etc. I love my mirror! (In this picture, Cricket is not amused - she is read to go and wondering why we need to stop and take a picture.  When the purse is on the shoulder she runs to the door - time to GO)
I had a face peel bottle that was the same size as my eye cream bottle. They are the same texture too so it took a few times of him telling me you have 'stuff' on your face that I figured out the problem. Oh!! That's easy to solve ... my face peel now has a braille p on it. Life is an adventure, isn't it.

I pulled out one of my favorite wool skirts for the day. I love its fun little flare and ruffle at the bottom. I love the ruffle and classic combo. As we walked home from church, there were puddles and sounds of melting snow. Yay! I am ready for warmth, sunshine, spring clothes, digging in the dirt (gardening), cycling, long walks ...

Ha ha! Your story about the face peel/eye cream reminded me of a time when my dad brushed his teeth with his Brylcreem (hair cream) which comes in a tube like toothpaste. He wasn't vision impaired, just not paying attention!

That is indeed a great mirror you have. I enlarged the photo---love the skirt. Didn't see any makeup flaws??

I always tell my hubby, when we go out to eat, to be sure and tell me if he see's anything "stuck" in my teeth. YOU MUST, I TELL HIM, let me know.
nothing worse then having someone look at you, when they can SEE something is not right, and NOT tell you

so good mirror indeed
