Hermitting for past few months!

Well, it looks like I have been neglecting my posting pretty badly these days.  Life has been a bit challenging from a health point of view lately and I have been giving that more attention than usual.  Gradually, I have been feeling better and have even begun spinning, dyeing and designing again.  Wahoo!  That alone is making me feel better!

One thing I have come to realize is that getting old is not for sissies.  Not only does gravity work very well and things are sagging in places I never know I had.  Have you ever looked at yourself with a hand mirror held under your chin?  Frightening!  It seems like the only good spot I have left anymore is my right elbow - really quite remarkable - soft, supple and unwrinkled!  I remember when I used to be cute back in the olden days.  Then, to add insult to injury, I knocked out one of my bottom front teeth!  Guess what, the tooth fairy doesn't come when you are 64!  So, now I have to figure out how to pay the dental bill to fix this newest challenge to any hope of glamour.  LOL!  I am definitely looking the part of an old crone these days and this morning woke up with a whopper of an allergic shiner in my right eye.  Oh well, I have come to the conclusion that God has a sense of humor and wants to see if I do too!   Meanwhile, I am not going out much until I can get this tooth fixed.  So, at least I will get a lot of spinning and dyeing done!
