Avant-Garde Still Life?

Unfortunately, no.
Just a glimpse into my exciting world.
Reading glasses as far as the eye can see. And bananas.
All that's missing in this shot is the cat's thyroid medication.
And I wouldn't trade this for anything.
Well, almost anything.

The fact that you wouldn't trade this for anything speaks volumes. I love that you're comfortable in your own skin. That you are a wonderful mother. That you are a good friend. Amen.

Good for you! I wouldn't trade those bananas for anything either ;0) Although, I may trade the glasses for contacts (for myself).

Nurse Nancy said...

My picture would be similar - replace cat thyroid med with dog thyroid me. So, I know and love your world!

Linda said...

I need some banana, and I think I need some new glasses. These that I wear just don't work as well as they used to. I'm always tilting my head, either up or down.

What Annie said ... you dont need distance glasses or I would tell you to do what I did .. I got no line bifocals when I couldnt stand wearing reading glasses over my contact lenses ALL the time in order to see ... I would so do that laser surgery if I knew I could also get my under eyes sucked out for the same $$ .. no point in not wearing glasses if your under eyes look like they are packed to sail on the Titanic

Hey! Have you been visiting my parent's house? Mine doesn't look like that yet, but I know my time will come!

I am rapidly joining you in the reading glasses department.

My eyesight is so bad, I would need glasses to find those glasses. Unlike Daryl, I am to chicken to let someone play slap and tickle with a laser across my eyes. So glasses it is! Might as well be able to see the aging process ravage my face!

PS~ Why are bananas like the best fruit ever?

PPS~ How many pairs of glasses are you bringing to blog fest?

Deb said...

See...my point exactly! We take a photo and tell a story. Sometimes, we do the opposite. Our brains were thinking along the same lines today...or yesterday...:)

I have progressive lenses with three different strengths and no lines....believe me, after two years I will never be used to them. I keep them in my purse and wear them when I shop so I can read labels and navigate the aisles.
So...I have two pair of reading glasses. One are for computer stuff and the others are laying around "in case" I need them.

I want laser....but I'm always putting it off.

Love the "still life!" Real life is always worth a good picture!

tj said...

...I say, ya better get one of those readin' glasses on and start readin' up on your best banana nut bread recipe 'cause those bananas are callin'! lol... ;o)

...Yeah, and that makes me love ya all the more knowing that you wouldn't give any of that up for anything! That's why you rock MPM! :o)

...Blessings...

As far as the eye can see - things change don't they?

Real life captured. :-)

I'm with Nurse Nancy.

Jan said...

I'm lucky I don't have reading glasses, even with a dozen pair, I'm sure I'd never find them. Mine are bifocal, always on my nose.

mom x 2 said...

You need some chocolate for those bananas. Let me get my glasses out so I can read the label on the chocolate we melted last week for our bananas ;)

Mary said...

ROFL. You are such a lunatic, and I love it! And I love that you are comfortable with yourself, too. :)

I got progressive bifocals because I got tired of dealing with reading glasses all the time...

imom said...

I've progressed to bifocals for driving and reading, but no glasses for computer use or looking at shelves at the grocery store. It's very much a pain in the butt to be taking my glasses on and off all the time. I don't want to mention it to my eye dr for fear he'll use the word "trifocal". Gah!

Meg @ Soup Is Not A Finger Food said...

In my book, those bananas are screaming, "make me into bread!"

Life with Kaishon said...

art : )

Nancy said...

LOL! I have glasses everywhere - except where I need them. That's because they are bunched somewhere!

noble pig said...

I always wear my glasses while peeling nanas...glad you love it. That's all that matters.

Karen Deborah said...

ok so just how old is your picture? the one where you look 25? I would trade bananas, and umm i can't use those glasses I'm too stinkin complicated.
So whatcha got tht you'll give me for some more bananas? you want another cat?

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

Awesome.

Toss in an empty bag of Fritos, and you've got either my nightstand or an Andy Warhol picture.

I'm squinting to read these comments. ;)
