Lesson 465: Weekend Wisdom

You made a wise decision to check in at the Lamp Post.

It's always a great place for a midwinter stop.

We had some blue sky and bright sunshine today.

It melted away some of February's white blanket we received earlier in the week.

With temps pushing into the 50's,
it's wise to get outside.
And while you're out there,
leave your mark.

Eloise is truly thankful

for neighbors who put up with me.

A wise one knows the sap will start to run.

Hubby is at the ready.

Eloise loves rusted metal.

Natalie was happy to receive a Valentine in the mail from her sweetheart.

She misses you, too, Ryan!
A wise saying is this:  
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
This means she will be happy to see you when you come to Erie.

Ellen Louise had her wisdom teeth extracted today,
putting a literal dent in her four day weekend.

She's a hurtin' human tonight.
Sam thought this giant bear would help her heal.

Mother Eloise went to the store to stockpile some soft foods
for a tender mouth.

Then I had to figure out where to hide it all so the rest
of my tribe didn't eat it all before she got her appetite back.
I think the vegetable drawer will work perfectly.
They'll never look in there.

Having any surgery puts stress on the body,
so I thought a little C-Boost was in order.

Grandma thought pudding was the better option.
No wonder Grandma is ALWAYS more popular than Mom.

I looked up some healing tips on Pinterest for her.
Ice packs in an old bra!
How clever.

Take an old bra, place two socks filled with ice in both cups, and fashion to head. Great way to ice cheeks after wisdom teeth surgery no hands or pins requires! #wisdomteeth #ice #surgery #teeth:

This will be over soon, Ellen Louise,
and you'll be all the wiser for it.

I thought this quote coupled with the large elephant tusks
was perfect for you.

We should print it
and frame it
and hang it over your bed.

Quotes Of The Day – 12 Pics:

Ellen Louise is locked and loaded with magazines to read for the next few days.

This wasn't one of them,
but Hubby sure enjoys looking through it every year.

I know--
body image
body shaming
love yourself
embrace your size
camera angles
photo editing
hair people
make up people
lighting experts
I know
I know 
I know.

But, seriously,
hats off to Christie Brinkley at 63,
as well as her two amazingly beautiful daughters.

Wisdom comes with age,

so don't ever regret growing older.

Thinking of my girlfriends and grandmothers who never made it to my age.  Wish they were here to laugh about this journey of aging with me...

I'll close tonight with this interesting photo story--
4 sisters photographed over a 40 year span.
How lucky they have been to be together on earth
all of this time.

Have a wonderful weekend, Readers.
