New Camera!

I finally gave up on trying to nurse my old camera back to health and broke down and got myself a new camera! ...hence the lack of posts lately.

I couldn't wait to try it out and had to snap some pix despite the eye bags after a long day.

I am still unemployed and trying to figure out what I really want to do. Seriously, I don't know if I have what it takes to work for someone else. I am searching my soul to see if I want to work for myself again.

Until then, I'm trying to keep busy and positive. I got a new haircut and went blond. I'm slowly working my way to peroxide blond, hoping that the gray roots won't show as much.

I don't know why I insist on wearing horizontal stripes, but I do. I've porked out some since being home, but I'm working on being healthier. During Menopause, you gain weight when you eat too much, too little, the wrong thing or the right thing. I refuse to be defeated by my body rebelling! Besides, Peanut of MRTB has asked me to be in her annual "Ladies Night Out" Fashion Show held at Rillos Restaurant. Peanut would like me to dust off some of the old dance moves for the show, so I better get practicing. More on this later.

Community Aid had their Winter Clearance recently with all items for $1. I stocked up on frocks, thirteen in all. I've been leaning towards the Hawaiian and African prints lately. Now that I have my wonderful new camera, I'll be showing these lovelies off.

This red skirt is one of my $1 finds...

Thanks to my new followers and I'll be adding links to my Blog site!

If you haven't yet, check our my son's blog "Got Beard?". He is posting his artwork there.

Oh you are soooooooo lucky for finding 13 frocks at a buck each!!! I too have an absolute weakness for African prints - maybe we could do a joint "Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency"-inspired post - now that would be fun wouldn't it? I think the GFC has many, many people re-evaluating their working life ... I hope it brings out more and more creativity in people - take that globalisation!!! xoxo

You look great in stripe. Loving how you mixed patterns.
I wish the photos were bigger so I could see you better.

Hoorah for getting a new camera! I love your 50s style red skirt. We need to get together sometime and I can take your outfit pictures! =)
