Just Curious-Whoops!

I guess in all of my worry last week I forgot to answer my own question! Sorry! Forgive?

OK. Good, thanks.

For you all, the consensus was eyes and for those of you that I've met I'd agree that they are beautiful! My favorite feature of my own is my legs. I was a cheerleader in high school and after camp sophomore year I became obsessed with being able to do a hurkey. (A jump that cheerleaders do: one leg out and straight, the other bent back, kinda to the side. The hurdler version looks just like a runner jumping over hurdles. I did a hybrid of the two.) I managed to master that jump and I directly attribute my great legs to the conditioning that cheerleading gave me. We certainly did not work out as hard as today's cheerleaders, but it's what got me moving in high school.

Yes, I think I still have fabulous legs. I walk the hills around my house to keep up the muscle tone, so it's not all easy, but it's definitely worth it. Especially when my husband notices! ;-)

I've gotten a little more forgiving lately of my body. (I said a little.) It is helping me to notice the good things about my body. I'm thinking I'm not looking too bad for an (almost) old broad. Take it from me-even just a little positive talk every day makes a world of difference. Try it. Move beyond your eyes to your shoulders, your legs, your feet, your arms-whatever would be your second choice- and embrace it. If you're alive, there is something else that you like about your body.

Now, on to today's question. I promise I'll be back next week (maybe not on Tuesday, though,) to answer!

What's your favorite movie?

With winter coming up I need to catch up on the movies I've missed. Old or new, Hit Me! Considering we could be in an El Nino year, I may be spending a lot of time on this couch!

Roman Holiday would be my favorite old movie. Castaway is my favorite newer movie.

Favorite, I have three that are super close in running.
The Five Pennies from 1959
The original Miracle on 34th Street
It's A Wonderful Life

I have several favorites after those that are newer but those three are awesome!

You do have great legs and the rest of you is pretty darn good!
