They Are Here To Stay

The boots feel wonderful
with a little help from an insert that was purchased years ago when I fractured my ankle
planting many plants about 10 years ago.

This morning made a trip to the big city.
My favorite bread purchased along with their soup for the day and a must have is their
chocolate eclair,
in fact I bought two.   A cold windy day and knew all would be fine in my vehicle.

On to the mall to exchange a wallet from my daughter.  The one I carry is over 30 years old
and I love it but it is beginning to look really shabby.   Contemplated much about this

As I walked through the big beautiful mall I received two compliments.   One of them from 2 ladies
who stopped and looked at me and commented "you look so stylish, love those boots and your
coat and scarf around your neck."   One continued talking and said I would like to have
some boots like this but I am 63 - maybe to old.   My reply was "I am 75 plus" and a reply
"you sure do not look like it."   This brought a smile to my face as I headed for car.

Long drive home and knew my lunch at home would be better then any I could taste
from a restaurant.   So many nice places in the big city but at noon every place would be
crowded and in reality I am a 1/2 day person.   Now if it was a month from now I would
make a stop at the wonderful Farmer's Market.

So a good day and have had 3 good nights as I wind down on medication.
With all my heart I hope
that this continues.
It feels so good to feel good and I am tired of sharing about health.....

Just wanted to share about these boots as one daughter called and asked
"are you going to keep them?"

I remember when I first started reading your blog and you would post a photo or two, I saw that you were a very stylish lady. I think when you have innate style, age does not deplete that.

I wrote just yesterday about having to get out once in a while among people. Days like yours yesterday...are really important to our well being. funny about how new clothes can put a bounce in your step. Have a nice day today.

So happy you kept the boots and for your trip to town. I am sure you truly did look very stylish and are most deserving of the compliments.
Enjoy those of my favorite treats!

Years ago I had a pair of boots that I loved so much I wore them for what seemed forever until they were completely worn out. I loved wearing ski pants with them.. that's what we called them back then. They were stirrup pants. Must have been in the nineteen eighties.

Style and class have nothing to do with age! See, you encouraged that younger woman....And how nice it is to be complimented!

Balisha, Marcia and Molly, thank you and Molly, I remember those stirup pants :)
Molly, you are so right.
I have memories of my favorite aunt who passed away at 94 who stil loved clothes and had a lot of class...
