Brenda’s closet. Day 110. When I was laying in bed listening to the weather the other morning, they said the most wonderful words—“a high of 50, dropping to mid 40’s in the afternoon”.
I know it’s the end of May and most sane women are buying capris, sundresses, and swim suits—but for me–the mid 40’s and 50’s are the best! I actually started to smile when I realized that I was being given one more chance to wear the best outfit I ever put together. I jumped out of bed, grinning from ear to ear , ran to the kitchen to look outside and see–as if I can actually see the chill–and to check the temp. I am literally dancing while making coffee. Bob’s sipping his tea and looking at me with this smile (he really knows me), as I say with great enthusiasm, arms flailing and feet tapping, “it’s going to be cool all day!!! Boots! Boots!!!”
I am REALLY, REALLY happy! No stress today. No rummaging for just the right piece to make my outfit for work. Today I can pull out the one that makes me feel beautiful, slim, tall, and invincible—that works every time–never fails! Dress in five minutes and out the door! I can’t believe how lucky I am!
Yes–it’s boots–and skinny pants and a dolman sleeved sweater over a tunic with white collar blouse and silver jewelry…You know this is my most favorite–never fail, wonder woman outfit!!! As I dash up the stairs, I say to Bob…”If I could wear this outfit everyday for the rest of my life, I would be a happy, happy woman!” Aah, the joy this gives me–it’s going to be a great day !
Tomorrow, I am going to try to find another outfit that makes me this glad. I know it’s somewhere in my closet–and I have a couple of days to make it. In the meantime, I am still so happy for today…
Don’t put your boots in storage…you never know! Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…..Bren
