We've had some really serious posts this week. I feel very grateful that I've been able to share some of the deepest thoughts of my heart -- forgiveness, atonement, national tragedy. I do believe that friends that matter talk about things that matter. But friends that matter also laugh and share silly and fun times. For this Pink Saturday let's talk manicures and pedicures. For or against?
I love pedicures, but am only so-so on manicures. I know that sometimes my hands look less neat than they could -- oh those pesky cuticles! -- but I do keep up my toes. This summer I wore blue nail polish which was slightly more lurid than the color shown above. It was a lot of fun and I think every friend I saw commented on how blue my toes were. My toes are now a sensible "Parisian Pink" or maybe it's "Ballet Slipper," and they have just a hint of pink. My finger nails are unpolished right now, but at most they are done in "Parisian Pink." I did go wild two summers ago and let Jess and her cousin Katherine talk me into a French manicure for her brother's wedding, but I haven't had any temptation to do it again.
I think I could go on for several paragraphs about the joy of the pedicure. I carefully select the color, my reading material -- usually something on the line of "People" -- have an iced coffee with me and then completely relax. I feel like I've had a vacation by just crossing the street. Bliss!
As ever, I appreciate the visitors to Buttercupland. You were all -- especially the requests you made -- in my prayers for the last few days. Thanks for visiting and have a spectacular Sunday.
