NOT MY BEST SIDE!!!

Just a little post tonight to check in with everyone and share a picture of me that was shot earlier this evening when I finished my chores out in the north 40 today. If I had known someone was lurking around with a camera I would of waited until I got inside before collapsing. Honestly this has never been my best side for taking pictures anyway! Never dreamed my tush would of gotten this big either but they say photos don't lie. Mirrors don't either I suppose. I have this big old dresser in my bathroom that has this huge round mirror on it. Take it from me ladies when you get to be my age DO NOT I repeat DO NOT put big mirrors in your bathroom where you can see yourself trying to get into a old clawfoot tub. I will take it easy on you all (and not go into details) because I like you but what I saw in my mirror this evening was not good. Not good at all. It's a good thing I suppose that I am single because Lord knows I could never show this body to another human being. You see these cartoons about older women and parts of their bodies have moved around well thats kind of how I felt tonight. It was like God when did I get this old. So strange because I feel like I am a lot younger. I have been wanting to have a post on here sometime about aging so I guess I need to hurry up and have one. Because Man do I need help with that OR is it too late for me. Anyway back to my picture (how and why did I get off on the other subject) oh well ......I can honestly say I was dragging this evening. Yesterday and today were my two days off for the week so I worked on the ranch. I mowed some, then I got on the back hoe and started tearing down the old barn out here. I loved that barn and hated to see it go. It was to me the prefect old red barn but OLD is reason it had to come down. Lot of years of neglect. Let me tell you ladies if you ever want to take out any kind of frustrations just get on one of those big yellow jobs with a big bucket and just start pushing those buttons and watch things fly. Well the old red barn is now in a million pieces and I should of just burned it where it stood because now do I have a mess to get rid of. Some of it will be burned. Then when I got bored with that project I spread gravel on a couple of the roads out here that lead to various houses and buildings out here. The one thing I really wanted to do and did not get around to was paint my porch. Some of the wood was replaced and so I am now going to just paint it another color. If and when I invest in a good digital camera I will bore you guys with pictures. The house I live in is over a 100 years old with a old tin roof and a long big porch on it. It sits right in the middle of huge old oak trees just like the ones in the movie Gone With The Wind. Only there is no Rhett caring Maggie up the stairs. Well maybe in her dreams. The house is a light yellow with the windows trimmed in a pretty green and the shutters and post in PINK. Yes Pink and my porch swing and rockers are all done in the same Pink. I love Pink. And it of course has the white picket fence. There I went and got off the picture again. I am ramblin tonight. Anyway to make a long story short I was dragging this evening but never to tired to check on my blogger friends. I appreicate all of you who have stopped by and Good luck to all of you with the giveaway. Sweet dreams Maggie

You certainly had a busy and productive couple of days, which surely earned a good long soak in the tub WITHOUT being concerned about 'which bits fitted where'....lol.

Thanks for dropping by my blog, too.

You are very talented! Age sneaks up on us. I think we feel younger on the inside, so don't notice it. Although I spent yesterday I spent a good amount of time examining the face lotions and potions in the store! THanks for visiting me, so I could visit back!

Hi Maggie:
Did I tell you as a little girl I wanted Maggie or Claire to be my name?
I turned 60 in March of this year and I thought now I know why I run out of steam quicker than last year : )
I agree with Ele's statement above; it snuck up on me : )
Hugs

Deborah/LavenderRose said...

Dear Maggie, I'm so happy to have found you..round about from another friend's site. You make me cry. I know you have an upbeat and sweet, funny attitude about what you're saying...but I understand it literally, you know. I have been in the same spot as you are now. Literally! A couple of jobs with children older, but still needing me, living in a wonderful 100+ yr. old farmhouse sounding like yours, on a 14 acre farm, with a 3 story red old barn that I loved. I know how very difficult it is to have a farm and to take care of it. It's awfully hard work, and the work is always there calling you. Nothing is ever "finished." So, I admire you, and you can call me an instantaneous friend, dear Maggie! I'm coming back soon and often.
Hugs,
Deb
PS: I lived in Massachusetts at the time, and I'm now living in FL, without the farm, sadly.

Hi Maggie:
Please, when you have time come pick up an award I am passing on to you. If you have time : ) you can name the 7 things yet if you don't it is okay.
I get giddy every time I look at the polar bear : )
I love the name Grandma Yellow Hair!!!
peace & hugs

Kathleen said...

Love your blog! all your graphics are adorable. I know what you mean about aging. I feel like i need help too. It's all better when I don't wear my glasses!!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

I am in awe of all of your sweet beautiful comments. Honestly they mean so very much to mean and I will answer each one seperately on your blog.
You all are sweethearts
Sweet dreams
Maggie

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Carole how do I thank you for my first blog award. I am so flattered and speechless. (If that is possible me being without words)
I wrote you a note on your site to thank you and tell you I am honored and will pick it up at breakfast in the morning. Tonight I have to turn in I am starting to see two of these computer screens and I am not drinking. lol
What a lovely person you are
Maggie

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Carole you are more than welcome to copy my picture of the polar bear I am so glad that you have enjoyed it. Makes me happy
Also wanted to tell you when my first Grandbaby Kaci was about 2 she started calling me Grandmayellowhair. Now her brother does.
I suppose she did it to keep me apart from her other grandma. But now that a few years have passed it should be grandmawhitehair but I refuse to let them call me that. lol
You should be in public with me and they call me that across the store or whatever we are doing. People give me the strangest look and then just laugh.
My grandson said about 6 months ago "Hmmmmmm I am not so sure your hair is Yellow."
Don't you just love the way they say whatever comes to their mind. I told him "Hmmmmmmmmmmm
no matter if you think it is not yellow your not calling me what you are thinking."
Sweet dreams
Maggie
