No Matter What Nana

No matter what this day holds for you
No matter how sad
No matter how happy
No matter how scary
No matter how boring
Unless you are
the angriest, nastiest person on the earth
This will make you smile

"I could dance all f***ing day"


Happy Friday My Dear Friends

Thanks to Sally Sue for the link
and the 16 phone calls in 2 days
and the many, many, many, oh my lord many, 
years of laughter.

Peppermint creamer in my giant coffee cup,
dozens of totes on my work table,
fabrics grouped, cut and finished,
a semi rainy day,
two very happy, contented, productive offspring.

BUT

What the hell is going on with my 60 year old hair?
Growing like crazy and Curly like Shirley
This shot is late last night after two nights
of SLEEPING on it.
Yes no makeup, no touch up,
sleepy eyes
Wha?


(I want credit for bravery in showing you this horrible shot.
Either bravery, or at my advancing age I just don't give a 
damn any longer......yep that's it.)

BUT

Damn! life is good
I could dance all f***ing day.

From one run around Sue to another..

Love it! The dancing grandma - and you with your beautiful hair. I think women forget they don't have to have on makeup to have a good time. Life is meant to be lived with or without makeup. I hope someday to be a dancing grandma - not in my future yet - but one hates to be caught demanding someone have a child. I leave you now to dance around the house (the neighbors have asked me to not dance around the neighbor until I get a bra with more support....) ;)

I think makeup is over-rated! I wish my hair looked half as good as yours...

Thanks for sharing the dancing nana...I needed a good laugh today.

Have a great weekend,
Susie

Oh wow! I don't know what I liked better her moves or her parting comment! Fantastic! I think you look fab, btw. I think you need to sleep on and not brush it always. Ann

I think your photo is beautiful, you look wise and happy and confident with who you are. That look only comes with living and learning and growing up to be a strong woman. You got reasons to dance, girl!

Today in Argentina we are celebrating Woman's Day, (big celebration here, my friend!) and this is the perfect post for today. Hooray for messy hair, tired eyes and lots of creativity!!!

Reminds me of my husband's grandma...cute!

Jackie said...

Oh wow! I hope I can still dance like that when I get older! She is adorable and yes wait for the ending it is so worth it!! I would love to have curly hair, but I got the dreaded baby fine straight curse over here!

The video and your post made me smile for the first time today...and it's 7:30 p.m. You look wonderful my friend, I look like Shirley on one of her bad hair days. I want to liberate myself from my straightening iron, ditch the undereye concealer and post instagram pictures of myself at 5 a.m. And dance a lot.

XO,
Jane

Just like you, Z! You are something else! (which is a good thing!!)

I'll give you credit and I love this photo. I dispise photos of myself and will try to avoid them at any cost!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. We are having sunny days in the 50's(which is a heatwave for this neck ofthe woods). I'll be outside getting my hands dirty:-)

Dear Suz, my cousin, sent me the video this week, I laughed and laughed, sent it to my boys and everyone I knew, God love her! I should be so with it at that age!
You are lovely, Suz , I have told you that many times, inside and out, braver than I...love long hair! I too dislike photos of myself, avoid at all cost!! N.xo

Samantha Stephens said...

Love the hair! What are you doing that is so good for you it gives you beautiful hair? The dancing grannie is great. Thanks for sharing. Hope I have that much rhythm when I'm her age.

Lana said...

Suzan, I told my 40yr.old daughter about this video and how much I LOVED it! I LOVE this pic of you, too, girlfriend!! I'm finding that at 65 I'm really liking the FEEL of no make-up and no-bra and to hell with the look!!! I've "looked and tried-to-look" for too many years in my life...and IF I want to have a day of full make-up and hair, I will. And if I don't, SAY.LA.VEE! (that's Oklahoma for "to hell with it!") Love your stuff.

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

Hey beautiful lady!
LOVE that video...what a way to start my day!!
Thanks z!!

Cindy said...

BHAAAHAAAHAAAA! LOVE HER! I hope I can move 1/2 as good as that when I am her age!
I think you look BEE UU TEE FUL!
I hate putting on makeup and doing my hair. If my hair looked as good as yours, it wouldn't be in a messy bun everyday!
Thanks for posting the video! I am going to share that with my 83 year old mom!

Theresa said...

GAAAAA! Thank you so much for this, she is AWESOME!
Last week I had the opportunity to visit my aunt, the last of 11 children, my mom's sister. She is 84 and oh my gosh she talked nonstop for 3 hours and had my sisters and I laughing until our faces hurt! It was the highlight of our girls weekend!
I think your hair looks fabulous!
love, t.xoxoxo
