Time to start the day...

My eyes weren't working at all when I turned on the computer this morning and I had to almost immediately put on my glasses. It was some relief to be able to read again. I guess some mornings it takes your eyes a little longer to wake up. I rubbed them hard enough at first to try and get the sleep out of them, but that didn't work. I suppose morning exercises don't work for your eyes. 

Now I'm sitting here quite contentedly with a cup of coffee and a cigarette. The newspaper delivery person has just been by on his noisy scooter, disturbing the peace and quiet of the early morning. I'll pretend I didn't hear that and will rediscover my equilibrium. I mustn't let something like that upset the start of the day. 

My hair is almost completely in place this morning, except that it is sticking up funnily at one side of my head. It's where I slept on it. It will be easy to remedy. All I have to do is get it wet and rub it dry with a towel and it will be in place again. I will jump in the shower to do that and get squeaky clean.

That will give me the opportunity to choose some other clothes to wear, because I'm in the mood for something different. I always forget that I still have lots of things to choose from. There aren't only the clothes that have gotten too big on me. There are lots of other things that are made of stretch material and have elastic waist bands that still fit.

I ordered some new lingerie, including some pretty colored bras instead of just plain black or white ones. I plan to clean out my underwear drawer and throw out everything that doesn't fit me anymore or that is worn out. I also want to go to the discount store that's close by here and see what sort of interesting things they have on sale there. And I need socks.

I think I'm awake, but there's some doubt in my mind. I'm going to try and stay up and get the day started, but I still feel sleepy. I think it's because of the medicines I took an hour ago. I may have to go back to bed for a while. 
Have a nice day.

You sound awake to me!
You are well organised with your clothes and plans for the day! I must get round to a big purge of my wardrobe!
I am having a slovenly day today. We will lounge about in dressing gowns for half the day. Ha ha! This is daughter's idea. I will go along with it!
Hope you have a good day!

Nuts in May

You always choose the most interesting pictures for your post.

You seem to be really enjoying your wardrobe. It's good that you have clothes with elasticated waists and such that will still fit you. You must have lost a lot of weight. Good for you!

For someone, who is not awake, your mind is very clear! I only wish I had that sort of clarity in the mornings, LOL. It take me so much time, just to force myself in the shower, and for what? To head back to bed and rest. I am starting aqua therapy next week, so I am happy about that and accupunture as well. I am praying these will get me functional, so I can at least drive and get back to work. My husband seems to think my working days are over, but I hope not. At any rate, I'm trying my best to stay positive.
I've missed you very much. Facebook, just does not cut it for me, as far as really keeping in touch. I'm thrilled to be blogging again.
Good for you for the new interest in your wardrobe. I can't imagine how much weight you have lost, since you have lost so much already. Stay healthy, my friend. xoxoxxo

Bev, I just like clothes very much and want to look good every day. I always dress up as if I have some place special to go.
