Rugged terrain...

Was a good day to get rugged up... can't explain why I'm up the tree though.  In a subtle as a gun poncho no less.  Getting the lay of the land maybe?  Doing a recon?  A-see-milating?
Always a good way to start a new week.  Or the second half of 2010.  Yes. Already. 

Time to do a check to see how we're traversing our terrain so far... so good?  If not, time to take another path, climb another mountain, abseil down a different side... who said the journey had to be a sisyphean struggle?  That's just a walking cliche.  This is reality.  Not TV.

Hope you are all well lovelies. 
...Stay zoned.  I have been the lucky recipient of a few blog awards and tags and I will be passing these on to other fabulous bloggers.  This is such a super way to acknowledge the many talented, witty, brilliant and beautiful beings in the blogsophere and a wonderful way to spread the word on favourite blogs.

Hi Dusk...
You know when someone looks at you...they’d say “I wanna look like that when I hit 40”
When I see you in all your poise n charm and beauty that pierces the heart with a sigh...I feel “I wanna be like this right now*along with throwing a fit and stomping my feet and playing blame games with bhagwan ji*...can’t wait another 8 years to be so gorgeous:-)*
Touchwood...
Stay the same...
Outside mesmerizing and within an equally balanced and lovely individual...

So glad to have the comment box back...so I can go on being awe struck;-)

Dusk said...

Hello lovelies... thank you fort all your amazingly generous comments and compliments!!

@ Sonali - I forgot to mention that. I do wear OTK socks over my skinny jeans and under my OTK boots!

@ Cheryl - hahahahaha hon!! I do seem to have an affinity with trees! Maybe I haven't evolved yet!!!

@ Fourth Daughter - hmm, apologies for that, that annoys me, will cut down on my animated gifs, etc, I do keep my pics low res though.

...yes, I am 40. Sometimes I too have trouble believing it. Not for any physical reasons but because I'm just such a freakin' kid at heart!!
