Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘power outage

Hello friends, I hope today, the beginning of your new week was a blessed one. I was tired this morning but vowed to get to church and thankfully I did. Service was good but it was “Harvey Day” so it was a bit more crowded and lasted a lot longer, ending at 2:00. I would have stayed for dinner but needed to go grocery shopping so I rushed home, changed clothes and headed to Costco and Safeway.

Traffic on 95 was horrendous, took the exit ramp into the mall only to realize that the traffic lights were out and all the stores in the mall and Costco were closing. We didn’t wait to find out why there was a power outage just quickly turned around and headed back south to Safeway.

I wore a sleeveless dress to church, thrifted from Goodwill covered with a 3/4 sleeve jacket that belonged to my grandmother (RIP Mama). My Mossimo heels from Target, clutch from DSW and “lap cover” scarf from Boscov’s.

After church it was still warm so I threw on a pair of shorts also thrifted from Goodwill, top from Walmart, loafers thrifted from Salvation Army and a belt from my closet.

I hope you have a fantabulous evening!

On Saturday after the power was restored the men and I jumped into the car and drove to New Rochelle, NY for a cousin’s Baby Shower.  Nothing makes you more aware of your own aging until your “baby” cousins start having babies, in this case having her 2nd – a boy!  My cousin was just a toddler when she danced at our wedding and now she has her own dancing toddler.  Traffic on the Jersey Turnpike and GW Bridge was terrible and we got a little lost but once we arrived it was  a fun, fun family affair.  I was also able to see my “friend-for-life” and hopefully this weekend she and her friend will be stopping in Delaware so we can do some more catching up.

I love my family and had a great time – Congratulations and God Bless India and Mike!

Do you hear the theme song from “Taxi”?

We had a major storm Friday night that knocked out the power so Saturday morning the house was quiet. No tv noise in the background and thankfully Malik’s laptop battery had died as well. He and his father decided to play a game of chess. The board was removed from where it sat for a very long time and I noticed a lot of dust, so I added dusting to my list of chores.
I have a China Closet in the living room which my grandmother had restored and given to me as a gift. I decided to open it up and dust all of the little knick knacks inside and pics of my ancestors on top. There are so many memories inside of this China Closet, I even thought about pulling out the photo albums but then the electricity came back on!
