We have the dog days of summer, so I now proclaim the bear days of winter. Don’t they (bears) hibernate all winter long? I am ready. Well…not really. Have to eat, color my hair, read the newspaper, my precious books, magazines, well, you get the idea.
Just remembered a few extra things for this high maintenance body. Floss, wrinkles cream, and if I continue, the whole posting will be about maintenance. How did I get by with just eating, sleeping, crying, smiling and making my mama happy when I was a baby. That’s all there was to it. Of course, getting the diaper full of stuff was part of the process also. But life used to be so simple then. Diaper issues, well, that was my mama’s problem. No disposables then. Oh well, the way I used to be. Just a pretty baby making my parents happy. That’s what I think. I’ll ask my mama one of these days.
Now, just look at the different versions of my water. And I am a very simple person.
This is so…I don’t know what to say. You know how sparse my pantry and fridge are. This was already there! How complicated as humanoids we have become. If this is only the water, you don’t want to take a look at my creams, makeup, etc., in my bathroom. Sometimes even I have a hard time finding things. There must be a black hole somewhere in there.
Going back to the first photo of this posting, I know, color coordination was not at its best. Gray socks and pink whatever you call those things I have on. But this was a priceless moment, and my ccc (cheap, chic camera) was right there with me, and I had to take a picture of this very relaxing, enjoyable moment. I could have gone to sleep (hibernate) right there and then. Even contessas have an off day in color coordination. You should have seen the rest of my outfit. You would be laughing until you converted into energy. But I was comfortable and feeling groovy. 70’s anyone?
Muses, where are you? The ink is running low, very low. And the word counter is showing a number very low also. Type, type, type. But what?
Oh my, a hot flash! I thought I was over with those things. What could it be? Maybe I have too many layers and up here in my winter retreat I have to admit it feels like a sauna sometimes, especially when my sunbeam is visiting all day long. But the sunbeam has been absent today. I will just totally ignore this hot moment and keep on typing. Well, well, well, the word counter is very happy. I am making progress. I can quit anytime now. I think I will and go downstairs to cool myself off. Too hot up here. I never thought I would say something like that. But I just did.
Hope you enjoyed my babbling today.
Hasta la vista amigos,
Your Happy Contessa
