Feast Your Eyes!

 Where did we get the term "Feast your eyes,"?  A feast is something sumptuous like a grand buffet of delectable food.  A feast is something enjoyed through taste.  So, obviously it's not literal. 


As you may know, it is usually said when presenting something special, possibly something the presenter has worked hard to produce. When it is presented, people look at it with great enjoyment or attraction. You are delighted at the sight of something.

The consensus seems to be that the first written account of this idiom was from Shakespeare's Sonnet 47 where he says, "With my love's picture then my eye doth feast." Your eyes metaphorically consume something beautiful.

I've always wondered how and why it became an idiom, so I'm slightly disappointed that the results aren't more exciting. So let's just move along.

As for my predicament:  The sling is off and I am going to physical therapy (partial shoulder replacement).  I still have remnants of a cold/cough.  And my foot is still broken, and I won't know for a few weeks whether I will need surgery.  If the two bones get a winder space, I will.  If they come together, I won't.  Now  all that depressing stuff is out of the way...

Remember how we were all so worried that Y2K was going to wreak electronic havoc?

I admit, it's happened to me!  And my husband actually got in someone else's care once thinking it was me!  LOL

Maybe that's why I have a broken foot!  All these years of doing my own stunts! 

I think my socks were absent that day.

Nope.  Never!

Have a great week, and don't forget to visit Happy Tuesday and Random Tuesday Thoughts.


  1. Love the socks with the buddy system! That Y2K thing was crazy. Mom wasn't too concerned, but it was still on everyone's mind.

  2. I so remember Y2K. We went paper route to try to save our digital files.

    Love all the funnies and I want that dress.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  3. That dress is quite something!

  4. Heeheehee! Thanks for the grins, and the dress was a feast for the eyes as your research was food for thought.
