A small problem with "Truth in Advertising". Michael, Eberly and I took a little backpacking trip this past week, and it was much longer and harder than a review article said that it was. I'm afraid we almost ruined Eberly for ever going again!! Most of our energies were spent climbing over downed trees and scrambling over rocks (at over 7500' elevation).
The scenery was great, but it was hot and dry. NOT a "High Sierra" experience.
I don't think that Eberly ever finished counting all of her mosquito bites (we forgot repellent) and she felt bad enough when we first woke up in the morning that she didn't get to have a Delicious fried Spam breakfast!! We packed up early and headed out. At least we got to check out our backpacking gear and determine where changes need to be made. So now the question is "Eberly, are you going to try it again in 3 weeks when we do the "Sierra Trip"????

This week I am grateful for my husband. This is probably the blessing I never take for granted. I am aware of how rich my life is because of him. Right now he is getting my big gulp to start the morning. It is 7:00 and I'm not even dressed yet. There are so many little acts of kindness he does for me. It just makes me love him more. It is so unusual for two people to have such a perfect fit. Even more amazing when you think how young we were when we got married. I was talking to a friend who was upset with her husband because he said some unkind things to her. He had apologized and said he didn't mean it, but she was still so upset. My advise to her was, "to let it go". She didn't really want to let it go since he hurt her feelings. She finally did come around to understanding how important it is not to obsess about things that happen. I think my letting go of the little things that irrate me or make me angry is something that has helped our relationship to be stronger. I love the phrase, "You can either be right or happy"! It is so true, you can't always have both. So I choose to be happy and I am delighted with the depth of the love that Jim and I share.

It is Sunday night and I have been going since early this morning. I am way too tired for deep thoughts, but want to say something to help the week get off to a good start.
Ginger' Beauty and Fashion Tips
1. No one with perfect hair is really happy on the inside.
2. True beauty comes from within. Within a great hair salon.
3. Smart women know that real beauty doesn't come from a make-up bag.
You need a drawer.
4. "Natural" and "Beauty" go together like "Diet" and "Bearclaw".
5. Surround yourself with ugly people.
6. "One size fits all" is the cruelest phrase ever.
