I'm back! If you haven't clicked on "Feel Good Friday" you are missing out. How long does it take to type in a few things that have made you feel good this week.
Monday - I went to a shoe sale Sunday afternoon and bought a really great pair of dress up sandals. Get this, with 3-inch heels. Now to most of you that is no big deal. I'm old remember. Since retiring I'm more the boots in the winter Birky's in the summer sort of gal. I decided I might want to practice wearing these before I actually go out in public. Remember how you walked in your mother's shoes when you played dress-up. That was me. I made myself wear them all afternoon. I thought I had the hang of this again. I forgot about the art of walking up and down steps, I'll practice that tomorrow.
I feel good because I don't have to wear those heels, pantyhose or a suit everyday. I'm just fine in my jeans, cut-offs or for dress up, my long hippie skirts with my Birky's. When you get old you can do that too.
Tuesday - I am so proud, I can walk in my new dress up heels, and go up and down stairs, but the best part, I have even gotten the butt swing back. I might be old but I'm still lookin' good.
I would much rather blog, cook and rummage around for old cook books, than worry about what is in style this season.
Today, Thursday, was my first batch of jam for the year, strawberry. Strawberries "Made In The U.S.A.". My first time to make No Cook Freezer Jam. Girls, you gotta try it. The recipe is on the back of the Freezer Jam Fruit Pectin pouch. I used Ball because that's all I could find, but use whatever brand your grocery carries. Saves in the refrigerator for 3 weeks or in the freezer for 1 year. Takes 10 minutes to throw together. I am over the cook, simmer, splatter stuff forever.
Now I really "Feel Good". Check in with me during the week for fabulous Kentucky Derby dishes.
