Today's topic: A picture of your favorite super hero and why it's your favorite.
Hand's down, it's Wonder Woman! I like her because she represents strong, self-assured, and independence in women. She's awesome. I miss those old Wonder Woman shows on TV, with Lynda Carter. Growing up, this was one of my favorite shows.
I even dressed up as Wonder Woman for Halloween once, for my Girl Guide Halloween Party. I got first prize! Yeaaaaa! My costume was so great (thanks to my wonderful Mommy) that it didn't even matter that my hair is blonde rather than brunette.
I haven't participated in any Halloween parties in almost 20 years. I have some adult friends that go to parties such as this all the time. I don't go because none of the men in my life over the years were interested; and this is one of those things that is best done as a couple... the reason I don't go as a single woman.
Anyway, if I did, I think I'd still like to go as Wonder Woman again. It might be fun to see that from an adult point of view, as opposed to my teenage point of view before. I'd dye my hair this time, though, with some of that temporary hair color. The only thing I never figured out was that spin thing to change my clothes. I'll have to keep working on that! :-D

Here she is... the only 'real' Wonder Woman for me.

A picture of something you wish you could change.
Something I wish I could change? You mean other than my life? LOL
For starters, I wish I could change my financial situation... which would change my living situation because I could own my own home again instead of living in government subsidized housing; I would have enough money for food, I wouldn't have to use coupons if I didn't want to. I could go get a hair cut and not feel guilty about spending the money. I could buy food and not feel guilty that I'm not spending it on bills. I could go to a movie. I could buy new books instead of looking for free books, or once a year or so treating myself to a used one. I could afford to start dating. I could buy my first car... finally!!! I could afford to give as much to the church as I would like... and I could go on and on.
I would also like to change things about my personality. I would like to be the me that I am on the inside... the one I've always been in there; that the world has yet to see.
I'd like to change the clock that I have on the wall. It's brass. It bothers me now. I don't like brass anymore.
I'd like to change winter. It's wayyyy to cold and has wayyyy too much snow.
But outside of all that, I'd settle for changing my belly. I've lost so much weight and I still feel like my belly is huge. It's not... most of the time in my eyes it looks like it is. It can get super bloated now and then (thanks to perimenopause, which I'd also like to change)... so bloated that I've taken pics of myself and I look like I'm pregnant. It's horrible. It's very hard to cover that with clothing. But thankfully it's not always like that and it can disappear as fast as it appears. I'd like to take that belly weight and push it up into my boobs. I used to have a flat belly and big boobs.... exactly how I like it. It's reversed now. I don't like that. But I am blessed that I'm no longer way over 200 lbs. Now I'm a more realistic number. God is good.
All of this is stuff I'd like to change... but truthfully... if I don't get to change it, I won't be overly bothered by it. Comme ci comme ca!
Well, since this a photo blog series, I have to put a photo on here... but I'm not about to post the photo of my big belly that I took looking in the mirror. LOL Here's the belly I would like to have. I could post a photo of the boobs I used to have or would like to have... but I think I'll spare you that. LOL

Topics of the day:
A picture of your favorite book & why it is your favorite.
A picture of what is in your bag
There is a long list of books that I love. Any one of them could be my favorite. For example "Getting Through What You're Going Through" by Robert A. Schuller is one that helped me over a major hurdle in my life... my divorce. For years afterward I went through guilt of being a divorced woman. I don't believe in divorce. I still don't even though I am divorced. As a Christian I feel guilty about that. For years I read what the bible says and I didn't know how to get past it. Robert Schuller's book taught me that it is OK, under certain circumstances, to be divorced. My situation fell into that category.
Then there are my favorite Interior Decorating books... and I have a LOT of them. I also very much love books on Healthy Living.
My favorite though, I guess is not surprise to most; is my bible. It answers every question I have. It guides me through life. It gives me hope. I cannot function without it.
OK... next topic... my purse. Mine has the typical stuff that most women have... a wallet, lipstick, a coupon folder, hair brush, a small crucifix , a mirror compact, pens, credit cards, bank cards, library card, awards cards, ID, MP3 player, cell phone, water bottle, day-timer, the latest book I'm reading, grocery list, laminated bible-verse cards on a ring, business cards, manicure set, maxi pad, chap stick, and eye liner pencils... and now and then if you dig deep enough you might even find some money. LOL
