When seasonal or holiday issues came out I'd decorate the house, purchase appropriate gifts and create gourmet sensations by following the directions contained within their colorful pages. Now? Not so much. And here's why: First, an advertisement for "an experience to elevate moisture enhancement" makes a mockery of my tired skin. Some of us realize and accept the futility of trying to look like age 30 at age 90. I simply don't have the courage to try "Do it yourself root coverage" – on my plants, maybe, on my graying hair NO WAY. And I really don't need further information on bladder leaks. Is nothing sacred? Products to enhance an "Unapologetically Fearless" lifestyle focus on women in their 50's!!! As if an SPF moisturizer will make my face look radiant. And those oversized sunglasses are designed to solve my Biggest Dressing Dilemma". My BDD is whether the elastic in my beige slacks will last until it's shorts time again., "How do I Get More Mileage out of my Clothes?". Well, how about I just keep wearing them. Sections on the Home start with a "dreamy bedroom update". I was hoping for a "dreamy bedroom date" (I'm 90; I'm not dead). I don't have bunk beds to customize and have no regrets about it. Spring Cleaning Essentials suggest it's time to freshen the bathroom and clear clogged drains. I'd rather sit on the breezeway and soak in the beauty of my flowering cherry trees. Menus and recipes have always been a passion. But anything with fish or artichokes won't work and if the ingredients take up more than an inch of space on the page I totally reject it. I might just try Prosciutto Scallion Bundles because they only have three ingredients and 60 calories. The recipe is supposed to feed eight, which means I could finish off the entire batch in two sittings. There are hints on How to Bathe My Delicates, but I'm not sure if they are for my clothes or my body. Rinsing Paper Towels – are you kidding? And Matching the Champagne Glass to the Event. I haven't hosted a champagne event since 1947 and have no current plans to do so. I do want to reach for the right plunger (Oh, wait, I want to reach for the right plumber). I can never wait for the wine to chill before drinking it. When I get home from a long day volunteering at the Medical Center I pour a glass before my coat hits the hanger. This is good stuff for young homemakers. As for me, my primary cleaning aid is named Marquerite and I would donate blood to keep her coming to 29 Charlotte Drive and making it sparkle and shine. Super Mascara and Canine Health Bars are not on my "to buy" list. But you new homemakers… Go For It!
