September reflections and a Public Service announcement

This is where I go on the weekends for a walk with my sister.  It's called Lodi Lake.  It takes us about an hour to walk  all the way around, because we stop to pick berries, take pictures, and jump through the poison ivy to chase the deer.  We laugh and talk about nonsense.  It's fun and good for me to get out in the fresh air and get some exercise.  Why am I posting about this?  Because September is my birthday month and I always get a bit reflective about the goings on in my life.
I have a challenge for all of you.  Every year during my birthday month I schedule a mammogram, a Pap smear (did you all just clench your legs together a bit?) and a dental cleaning.  All the orifices (ha ha).  Last year I got a colonoscopy. WoooHoo! Talk about good times!    I do it during September because I'm thinking about me (53 this year- ouch!) and I feel kind of guilty if I don't take care of it.
Anyway- to all you gals out there, get your lady parts looked after.  Do it for you.  Do it for your family.  And don't forget to stop on the way home from your exam for some yarn or fabric!!!!  Weeee, the best part.  Better than a sticker or a lollipop.
Coming up..... Fall berries!!!!!!!


  1. Very good advice. Especially the bit about the yarn and fabric after. Yes, you'd deserve a treat right about then! :)

  2. Great advice, I have had to cancel my lady garden examination twice now and you have reminded me that I must arrange it again. I will do it this week!
    Any excuse to hot foot it to the wool shop!
    Great place for a walk too, I live right on top of the woods and hardly go in there. I like knowing it's there but I was born and bred as a city girl and I like a bit of pavement under my feet!

  3. Bless your heart. :o)
    The dental is all cared for.
    Now for the other. Not fun.

  4. Sometimes dignity and glamour just have to go out the window, don't they?!
    Enjoy your walk this weekend
