My Hips Don't Lie

This was Monday morning's sunrise, passing by very quickly but awesome.

I do not like shopping for clothing but bit the bullet today. I have never liked shopping for clothes but my size changed after I turned fifty and I don't recognize my new size when it is hanging on hangers so now besides not liking it, I also find it difficult. Eighty percent of what I brought into the change rooms was too small. I've never worn such big clothes. Everything that ended up fitting looked way too big when it was on the hangers.

I'm not overweight. I actually did a Body Mass Index (BMI) test this week and it was classified as normal. It's that my shape has changed that makes the clothes come in a completely different size. I commented to my doctor about five years ago, " I could have put these boobs to better use thirty years ago..." I finally have an hourglass figure after being a stick my entire life. But what big clothes I have to wear!

Since I can't find a song called This Body, This Weight by Van Morrison has to be the song of the day. It's on the music pages already so you get at least two more. Beautiful Me is perfect too - says it all really, and a song full of pure funky soul is a bonus. It's by Shelly Bhushan and it's a fabulous song. My Hips Don't Lie by Shakira was a big hit last year and is the big hit for here today. Ha, I have the Latin version. Enjoy!

I googled a picture of Shelly Bhushan. I seriously doubt she has a "waddle," sexy or otherwise--she looks like a wraith.

I don't have a waddle either, just ah hourglass shape.

This picture is glorious.

I picked forty daffodils one time after I said, "You'd never notice if I took forty daffodils out of there." I gave bouquets to a few friends with them. I've just come in from replenishing my own bouquets and adding a few more. There's now a bouquet of daffodils and forsythia in most every room.
