Body Parts

It's not what you think.
I'm not talking about this kind of body part -->

I'm actually talking more about these kind of parts.
The every day parts that we all have. The ones that start showing a little wear and tear after a few decades on this planet.

While my sis was in town our conversations inevitably seemed to end up circling around our bodies and their inevitable demise. We talked about the ways we're trying to turn back that old clock. My sister is big on yoga but I'm not convinced that twisting my body will do more than just cause my joints to ache more LOL. Good ol' sis did tell me that she's been using Olay Illuminating Eye Treatment for those dark circles under her eyes and she claims it works. Yesterday, before sis got on the plane, we went to the store and I emptied my wallet for a small bottle of the stuff. Tried it last night but the circles under my eyes are still there. I've been told it'll take some time so I'll report back on this later.

With things like the Top 10 Lip List sometimes I think we focus a little too much on our body parts. I mean, c'mon if they serve the function for which they were made (your eyes see ... your hands grip) then why are we soooo determined to fight to turn back the signs that our body has been doing what it was intended to do?

Not everyone is fighting the aging fight. Stevie Nicks says she thinks botox makes everyone look like Satan's children so she's given up on that lol. Maybe she has a point. Maybe we need to fight the aging battle a little less so we don't end up looking like we're unable to move our faces into any true emotion.

For now, I'm going to try this new eye cream to see if I can eliminate looking terminally tired. How about you? Are you fighting the hands of time or are you too young and beautiful to care?

I'm terrible when it comes to that sort of thing...guess I'd make a terrible star! LOL

Did you know your Remains of the Dead is now in Kindle Edition? I wrote you a while back and asked when if you had any idea when it would. I think I wore out their little button clicking on it several times a day. (: I can't wait to start on it, it really caught my eye and sounds like a great read.

Darla, thanks for the update regarding Remains. I had no idea it was finally available in Kindle!

Darla said...

It just became avaliable sometime after lunch.

Hi Wendy,

I just 5 minutes ago finished Remains of the Dead. It was great and I can't wait to get the next one. I hope it is in ebook format like "Remains..."

I'll be mentioning it on the Paranormal Mystery yahoo group I follow.


Wendy Roberts said...

Thanks again, Darla!

Hey CathWren! So glad you enjoyed Remains and, yes, Devil May Ride is already on Kindle. Thanks for mentioning the book on your yahoo group. Greatly appreciated!

I need some of that Olay stuff. The terminally tired look is beginning to tick me off. Other than that, I'm trying to age gracefully. I haven't dyed my hair, even though several hairdressers have mentioned it. I figure I earned these gray hairs, and I'm keeping them. ;o)

Wendy Roberts said...

B.E. you're a braver woman when it comes to the hair dye. It started out I was coloring my hair for fun but now my hairdresser has pointed out it's become a necessity. I've earned all mine too!

'Fat and 40' is getting ever closer now and my charity 5km run is only 5 weeks away! I 'ran' 1.8 miles yesterday - Maggie the dog adds insult to injury as she always yawns in a 'is that the best you can do?' sort of way when I get back home (looking like crap!). Forget Olay, I need a miracle!

I just finished TROTD. Loved it Wendy! I'm downloading book two as soon as I'm finished writing here.

I've looked terminally tired since I was 3. Let me know if the stuff works!
