Back in the Saddle

Well, not really...although I did go back to the InStride horse ranch to once again volunteer in their literacy program.  Forty first graders came from a nearby school showed up yesterday for the field trip--really, I don't know where they hide all the kids most of the time.  It is just enough flexing of the old teaching muscle to be fun for me.

I also had a totally new experience yesterday afternoon--I had a facial.  Not only a facial, but a foot massage while the mask did its work.  And today my face feels as soft and smooth as a newborn baby butt.  I have to seriously consider becoming a high-maintenance lady.

TV show idea: The Real Retirees of Venice.  Somebody is going to steal that idea and run with it, I just know!

    Hmmm! Interesting imagery, but all is good as long as it feels that way, and not necessarily looks that way.

  2. Hey if they do steal the idea, hope you get the lead. Someday I will spring for a facial. I love being pampered.

  3. Your facial sounds so relaxing! I haven't had one in years. I should get some stuff and let Amara give me one. We'd both like it.

  4. I want my face to look as young and soft as a baby's butt. I do not really care if it feels that way. I had a facial a while back, but it was not anything great, I think. Now a full body massage is something I would love to have again someday.

  5. The feet.
    Forget the face.
    Make my feet feel good and I'm yours for life.
    Whether or not you want me.

  6. It must be nice for you to get a little 'teachery' feeling now and then. I haven't had a facial in years. They put me to sleep!

  7. I think the show would be a hit! I know I'd watch it.

    It's always feels good to have someone pamper us. I had my hair done yesterday (color and cut) and my favorite part is having my hair washed. It feels so good and so relaxing.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. I keep thinking of sending Woody Allen snippets from my life. I would love to have him develop my ideas and make a movie out of them. No need to pay me. The joy would come from seeing my scenarios on the screen.

  9. I loved having my first mani pedi and vowed to go back every month. I've only been back once because its so time consuming. But its not like I have that heavy a schedule.

  11. By coincidence, B went to have a facial the day before yesterday, the first time, she said, in about ten years. She admitted that it was expensive, and incredibly self-indulgent. And then she said: "I'm definitely going back!"

  12. You need to claim that title before someone else does. Facials are the best. Foot massages even better. Take care of yourself. No one else will.

    By the way, as you probably guessed, we didn't make it to Venice. I wanted to so badly, but we just didn't want to drive that far from Orlando. I had neglected to record your email address on my iPad, so I didn't send you a note to let you know that our trip did not allow a trip to your area. Maybe next time...

  13. I love facials but must be careful now that the potions and lotions are organic so they don't have formaldehyde and are lanolin free. Don't worry - I've found a place her in Breck that fits that description. Pampering might not make me look younger, but it sure makes me feel better about being 70!

  14. I've never had a facial or a pedicure. I got a few gift certificates from students, but I would pass them on to my happy daughter. Now you've got me wishing I'd tried them.
