Living simply in retirement is my goal.
Dressing simply seems like it will reflect my new lifestyle.
Taking tea on the front porch
with time to mull over what is important
~ things I'd like to persue ~
~ things that I can let go of ~
~ enriching my life and those of others through volunteer work ~
~ taking an art class ~
~ meeting new people ~
~ re-joining the Victoria Horticultural Society ~
that's just what I thought about today!
simple bouquet of chartreuse green Lady's Mantle
This cheery red white and blue tote "spoke to me"
every time I went back to The Bungalow in the Estevan Village I looked at it
it kept speaking..."buy me Hostess!"
I picked it up and carried it a bit
yesterday and decided that I could treat myself.
Oh and won't my red flats have fun with this great tote?
Happy Shopping and Happy Dancing.
I love this message
as it also speaks to me...
and I AM listening
listening to ALL that is my daily round
soaking up life
attitude of gratitude
I popped into out local Hospice Thrift Shop
and found this basic linen shirt which I will wear layered over a simple white tank top
I love the organic neutral shade and think it will look fabulous with creamy strands of pearls.
I think there will be multiples of pearls worn with this shirt
Coco would approve!
Sandwich white skinny capris
perfect for a summer day
thinking of wearing them with my blue and white striped Breton tops
red flats or sandals
perhaps paired with the new J Jill linen shirt
and an armful of bangles
or a simple silver cuff
another thrifted find
a silver disk on a strand of simple leather
casual ~ simple ~ fun
The WW program is keeping me mindful of what I eat.
Recording all the food points really helps keep me accountable.
The walking is helping me whittle the weight, build muscle and is making me feel more energetic.
The best news is that I have lost 16 pounds as of my weigh in this week!
My boyfriend jeans are looking so baggy and there are only a few pairs of pants that fit me now.
I do not want to go out and invest in a lot of new things because I want to lose another 10 pounds
and they tell me that is usually another size down.
Happy Fourth of July!
Enjoy the festivities and fireworks.
