It Ain't Happening Today

Big plans for today are very undoable. It's oh so wet, like the winter days I remember in the schoolyard when it seemed like the snow was putting out steam. That icy-melting smell is in the air. And it's disabling the functional mode. There's always tomorrow.

So I'll do the little things I can do. Like a makeup test run with what I have. It's honestly been so long since I wore any that I don't even remember. I've no idea if the mascaras I have (which have never been used) smudge or run, if the foundations are still useable, or what pencils and shadows I own. Today is a good day to sort that out.

And then I'll examine my shoes and bags. I'm sure things need polishing. All sitdown work, and useful things that need doing so I can plan spending.

A neighbor was taken away in an ambulance earlier. I know her daughter; I hope she's okay.

Everyone I know who's still working is having workplace issues. Sometimes I think there's something to astrology, as Rob Breszny predicted this a couple of weeks ago. Nah, more likely a clever assumption considering the times we're in.

It's gonna be a low-key day. Those are good, too.

Those run the gamut from nauseating to horrifying!

Make up? Oh yeah..I remember that stuff. I used to wear it in high school. You know that song, "Send in the clowns?" That's how I feel when I wear makeup...like a clown. Good on you for still being girlie.

Good Luck with the makeup. I never wear it, as I find mascara clashes with the white of my beard.
Hope you enjoy your leather polishing session, I find that polishing shoes, and bringing them back to an Army-like glossiness is very theraputic.

just wrote a rant about makeup, coincidentally, which is funny now that I read your post. It may be a low-key day but it sounds productive...

Makeup test run went well. I'm gonna have to get mascara, but that's it.

Anyone have a tip to buff up black suede? Looks kinda gray and tired...

I have an acquaintance who had her eyebrows and eyeliner tattooed on and was going to have her lips done also so she would always look made up. She said it was worth it as she was allergic to make up. She admitted that it was painful and expensive. I say whatever floats your boat, but Cover Girl is good enough for me.

Good luck on your experimentation. You will look beautiful because your soul will shine through.

Arleen, my mom's best friend had the eyeliner tattooed AND false lashes implanted. 29 years later the liner makes her look like she has black eyes (it spread over time) and the lashes gave fallen out. I'll stick with the wash off stuff, too.

TSB! There's something satisfying about polishing shoes and silver, but I have to be in the mood. You should try blue mascara. Goes great with white hair, or beard.
