What Is It They Say About Vanity?

Oh, my!  Today I bought 3 bags of cat litter at Petsmart.  After I checked out, the cashier (who is a very nice lady) asked me if I needed help out to my car.  Yikes!  The bags were only 20 pounds each!  Obviously, I need to pump iron.  Then I stopped at the beauty supply store.  The girl at the cash register asked me if I had a discount card.  I said no and asked what I had to do to get one.  "It will cost you money at first, but you'll save money.  They cost $5.00 and they're $2.50 if you're over 55."  Aaaaaaaah!  I thought I looked 5 years younger than my age.  Now I find that look my age and maybe even older!!!!   Waaaaaah!   Waaaaah!

Maybe it's only temporary.  Maybe I look older because Jim and I have been painting at Mom's this week and I'm tired:)  Waaaaah!  Maybe I'm a big old baby.

Here's the finished playhouse and part of the fence.  We painted them light gray and used charcoal gray on the trim.

Here is my WIP.  I'm going to set it aside and work on the desert scene for awhile, but I wanted to show you where I am now.

Happy Easter!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
