Brunch, Coffee, and Watch

A day spent catching up over brunch….

It Sucks And That’s Okay

Everyone talks about how wonderful life is?

Give to Get

Give what you want to get.

Is my Polish Showing?

Sometimes it only shows through a tiny bit. Other times, like today, it screams at you with the fury of one thousand Hussars. 

When It Won’t Go

Every once in a while, probably once or twice a year, I’ll hold a clothing sale.

A friend has this great tradition called Feast of the Swine.  On Easter, he gets people together and the menu is pork.  Various connotations, various servings – from pie, to sausages, to olives wrapped in bacon – but it’s got to be pork.  This year I attended the pork feast.  And a feast it was.

Bacon wrap grilled pineapple, and bacon wrapped olives, and also apple bacon bourbon pie.  Oh yum!  It was just yum!

If You Can’t Beat ‘Em, Join ‘Em

That’s the saying isn’t it?  Well, it’s a full on snowy gray winter here, so I guess since I can’t beat it and I have tried, I might as well join in.   It seems that no amount of wishing and hoping, and wearing bright colors and lace dresses will make this bitter chill or tufts of snow leave.

I think the time has come to embrace the snow and the cold and see what will happen.  The least I can do is try to make the white and gray as fabulous as possible.

p.s. I think it’s awesome that no one noticed that I got rid of my highlights and dyed my hair back to dark brown about a month ago.  I guess it was only a dramatic to me.  It always is.

This day I was on my way to assist at a shoot all day.  So the mantra of the day was comfortable, movable *to lift and adjust gear etc* and no jewelry *you don’t want it getting caught on some lever*

Since I couldn’t use accessories to brighten my wardrobe, I went for what Andrew calls ‘loud’ pants.  I love a good paisley.  Much more so than a floral, and this grey and cream pant was perfect.  They’re a bit big *they were on sale and the size left was a touch bigger than mine* so once I break them in it’ll need a good belt, but I kind of like the baggy boyfriend cord look once in a while.

Long Live the Monday Morning

Gotta say, I love Mondays.  I know most people who have a 9-5 hate them, but I love them.  All through my life I’ve been a freelancer or shift worker, and the fields that I work in have usually been most active on weekends.  So for me, the weekend usually meant work. Monday meant rest.

Now, Mondays are an extra long day for my girl as she has Spanish class right after kindergarten.  So now, Mondays are a big day of free space.  Space for work, for productivity, for a pamper day if I need it.  Mondays are full of opportunity.

Giggles. Tears. Jitters. Nerves. Laughter.

Oh, she’s fine. I’m talking about me.

My girl’s going to school today.

That’s pretty much all I can think.
