Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice"
to the Tuesday Slice of Life (SOL) community.
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Betsy, Dana, Beth, and Anna

I've been wondering about my shrinking stature. Each time I latch the kitchen windows closed, I worry a bit about the stretch it takes to reach the latch. I have to step on my tiptoes, something I don't remember doing in the past. Uh-oh, another toll of my increasing age must be that I'm getting shorter. This does NOT make me happy since I've always been too short anyway. And when I speak of shrinking stature, it's definitely just the vertical kind.
I was growing accustomed to my fate of growing shorter as I age . . . until one day last week when I reach for the latch, and have an aha moment . . . my new countertops are thicker than my old ones and the edge is not flush with the cabinet. Hallelujah! I'm not shrinking after all. It's just that my new countertops have added a bit of depth and height to the counters which leads me to s-t-r-e-t-c-h (my OLW for this year) as I reach for the latch to lock the windows. I'm content that I've found another way to stretch and happy that I'm not shrinking . . . yet!
