Growing Old

I don't like to wish time away as it's time we never get back, but I am looking forward to the upcoming weekend. I have no weekend plans and I like that! I like to spend my time at home and do what I love best - spend time with my children, work on new art projects, and get outdoors to do a bit of gardening and/or hiking.

About wishing time away . . . yah, there are days I do wish it away . . . for my own reasons. I won't go there now, though I used to wish the days and years away yearning for a future day to come. "That" day has yet to arrive.

On the other hand, I best not wish time away and will admit this: I don't like growing old! And, I know, many people will tell me I'm not old enough to be considered "old". But lately, with each passing year, I am really feeling older and I don't like it at all. I especially noticed this after Jacob was born . . I truly could tell the difference 6 years has made, as Abbie is 6 years older than he is. I was tired when she was a newborn due to lack of sleep, but with Jacob my goodness I have been sleep deprived more than ever! And my aching back . . my stressed out neck and shoulders - I carry my tension in my back which never goes away and is an increased problem as my job involves working mainly on the computer 8 hours/day.

And so, with the growing old blah, blah, blah, I figured I'd share some wonderful vintage photos of older aged women for your personal use.

If anyone uses vintage photos I've shared in their artwork, I'd LOVE to see what you've made. :)
And, I know I've not been good at getting around to fellow bloggers and saying hi, but I will try my best this week to visit as many of you as I can. Have a great day everyone!
