Floral & Stripes

Posted on: April 22, 2016

With my Back Acting up Since the 

Jimmy Buffet concert last weekend, 

I haven’t been much for taking blog photos.  


I took these photos on Tuesday when we had warm weather return 

and I was thrilled  and showed it by wearing my “Lovely Day” tshirt from last season. 

I found the floral slip ons on and

added an orthotic as they are not at all the comfort of my Clark’s. 


My skirt is from QVC and a first purchase from George Simonton’s line. 

I like the swingy nature of this skirt and bought it in yellow as well. 

It’s a very odd much thicker fabric than I anticipated,

but I do love the length and will get much use of this for Spring and Summer.


If you look closely you may notice I have a new accessory

on my wrist, A Fitbit Charge I scored off Ebay in Navy.

I am loving seeing how many steps I take each day and up until I hurt my back,

was very motivated to move more and increase to reach my goal of 10,00.

This week I’ve only reached about half that on most days, but not stressing as the more

I try to do the worse my back is by the end of the day…

It’s not easy to limit myself , but that is what I must do at this point, ice packs, a  new massager, yoga stretches, tumeric and a new Magnesium gel are among my arsenal to allow my back to heal.  

Dear Readers, Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!  


I know this is silly, but I am grateful for the back trouble as it is confirmation that I danced and had as wonderful a time as I had hoped for at the Jimmy Buffet Concert, lol..

I am grateful for the help from my husband and son during this time of taking it easier…

I am grateful that our weather is now more like a normal Spring of swings from the 60’s to 80.  

I am grateful to my hard-working  husband! 

I am grateful for the sweet kind, compassionate nature of my youngest son, who sent his Iphone to Massachusetts and is doing without for a few weeks until his new phone arrives. He sent it to his sister as her motherboard blew and she was lost in Boston on Marathon weekend with no GPS…

You are truly gifted at being full of gratitude to be able to look at your back as a good thing.
Love the print mixing, Tracey—you give me cause to keep trying it! jodie

Years of practice have helped me to be grateful for all things in my life as I’ve grown to see how even the worst days have a flip good side, even if it was just a teaching tool, lol…

I do love that skirt..QVC?-wow! I’m always looking for something that isn’t short-short, but isn’t too long as I have short legs. Love the shirt as well 💜 PS- I saw on TV that “Joy” the movie about the lady who invented that mop and sold it on QVC is coming out for sale?..that was a GREAT movie..very inspiring, I saw it in the theater.

Hey Tracey..hope all is well with your back. Miss your posts!

Thank you, my back is driving me nuts, I have one good day , then next day is awful. I am planning a trip next week for my daughter’s college graduation and taking it easy in hopes that I can survive the 10 hours car ride.. I may do a post or two soon…

You poor thing..gz. I just drove a bit over 9 myself to get back to Fl.. had to stop about every 2 and a half hours to gosh, it’s like I’m 80 already. 😕 What do they think is the matter with your back? Is it a chronic situation? Bring a cushion to sit on for graduation..those things can really go on and on..and on and on…and on..

Hey Tracey-hope you are feeling better and that graduation went well.
