“What do you wear for real life, when you are not going out for a fancy date?” “What do you order when you go to a regular restaurant?” “What do you wear when the weather is sweltering?” “How do you prepare healthy meals for one?” “What do you wear when you walk or exercise?” I appreciate that some of you send me your questions. It helps me to share more helpful tips and inspiration. This week on the blog, I will answer some of your questions.
Sunday is the day we rest, catch up on a few errands and visit with family. Both Mr. Mickey and I have family members living nearby. We visit with them, bring food, puzzles or books and check in often if not daily. The sick and elderly appreciate a visit more than anything. It is a delight to recall pleasant memories with someone you love when you spend lots of time alone.
Our weather is not ordinarily hot and sticky in October but that’s what we have this year. Yesterday we stopped by both our Post Office Boxes, picked up medications and ran errands for others and visited with family. Later in the day, we shared a late lunch at Aubrey’s which is a local chain restaurant.
Bread is served with every meal if you want it. Guess who always says “yes, please”?
We often share an appetizer or a Small Plate as our entrée. One of our favorites is the Pizza Rockefeller, but we ask that they substitute the peppers with mushrooms. Neither of us enjoys a large volume of food.
Mr. Mickey’s favorite dessert is an apple cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I have a few bites and leave the rest for him. The second half tastes the same as the first.
My casual hot weather look always includes lightweight white pants and cotton lightweight shirt. Cotton and linen wrinkle easily but no other fabrics are as cool. My almost sheer blue and white striped shirt crisply ironed at the beginning of the day, is from Everlane here. A less expensive version is here. The white cotton blend pants are from Chico’s a couple of years ago. Similar pants are here. The bag is my nod to fall. It is by Dooney & Bourke here. A less expensive version is here. The sandals are old from J.Jill. Similar shoes are here. A less expensive version is here. Referral and affiliate links in my posts may generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc.
