All About Me

It's almost time again for the end of this week's Show Me Thursday Blog post that the fabulous Sassy Cheryl sponsors each week. Although I have been working on several things that I could have showed you all, I thought I'd make you all jealous with what I did today. It was a ALL ABOUT ME DAY.

Started out with a walk with my walking buddy and another friend. So this is a picture of me at the end of the walk. Temps were at freezing this morning, and I was extremely chilly to start with, but you'll notice I'm halfway out of my mittens by walk's end. That checked the exercise off my list of things to do(trying to keep my self mobile and healthy). Now it's on to much more fun things.

Last year, my niece opened Vitality Spa in Starkville, MS, and my bestest friend gave me a gift certificate. Well this was the week to use it, so today I went for first a 30 minute facial followed by an hour long massage. The experience was incredible. Have to say I was a bit worried about being cold since outside temps have dropped, but the massage tables are heated and both the therapists were beyond competent. This first picture is of me with a masque applied to my face during the facial portion of the morning.

This second picture is of Betty working her magic on my tight shoulders.

 I'm now trying to figure out how I can do this once a month or at least every 6 weeks. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to be still for that long, but believe me it wasn't a problem. In fact it was kind of like Savasana in yoga, when I dread her ringing the bells to tell me time is up, and I have to leave.

I wish all my friends lived close enough to have these facilities available.

As bad as my house needs cleaning, I am not going to mess my day up by laboring and ruining the effects of the massages. Instead, I'm going to continue to indulge myself with play time in TazMania.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Oh My Gosh Shirley, this looks wonderful! good for you on getting to pamper yourself.. thanks to that very special bff!

    you gave me a happy for you smile today!
    delicate hugs!!!!

  2. Be honest. . . . .you posted that just to make me even more jealous! Shame on you! I know who is DEFINiTELY not going to be the 'random' winner this week. LMBO! Kidding of course, except for being jealous. That part is definitely true. I would have LOVED to have been there enjoying one with you. Maybe next time. You go girl! And I don't blame you. . .I wouldn't ruin the massages by cleaning anything. That stuff can wait.
    Hope you got to play ALL of the afternoon in TM! Be good. . .!
    Thanks for sharing in the Sassy Cheryl's SMThursday fun this week.

  3. My iPad isn't cooperating! This is my third attempt to comment! Love your " All About Me" post ! If any one deserves it, you do, my friend as you are ALWAYS doing and giving! Glad the day was all you hoped for and more! It's been way too long (2005) since I had a massage- thinking one might be therapeutic! When I win the lottery ( oops, keep forgetting to buy that winning ticket!), I plan to have a WEEKLY massage---I know, don't hold your breath!
