Sometimes life just doesn't seem to care that one is a style blogger who likes to post several times a week. Since I have lasted posted, I've graded 75 papers, learned that my father-in-law is hospitalized, dealt with a problem about which my lips need to remain zipped. On Saturday, I attended a baby shower hosted by my sister; I arrived to discover that she had been hospitalized for a kidney stone! This coming week I'll begin to move the first of my mother's belongings so that she'll be settled in before Thanksgiving. And we are hundreds of miles away from the storm that devastated the east coast.
A package from Krista at Peetee's Palace was another delightful surprise. I've coveted one of her bright sugar skull bracelets for months. And what a way to lift my spirits about the raft of things we're contending with at the moment.
I've tried to take photos at the end of my work day, but in most of them my fatigue and worry is showing. Forgive the vanity that keeps me from sharing most of them with my readers.
Nothing very special about this except the collection of nut & seed necklaces around my neck, 3 strands.
Today, in a small burst of daylight savings optimism, I took photos of what I thought might be blogworthy.
Tonight, I discover I've managed to lop off the top of my head in EVERY photo! So, have a laugh at my expense!
This charcoal gray dress by Ralph Lauren has a high waist also like last week's plaid. While in theory I love the scoop neck, in reality there is a difference between the skin on my neck and the skin on my chest. I pulled out this silk scarf that Citizen Rosebud used to wrap up an item I'd ordered from her and the blues and purples gave it just the touch of color (and cover) I needed.
I probably won't do much better visiting blogs this week. I have two stacks of papers to grade in addition to everything else. And I'll be so glad when this election is over!
I'm linking up to Visible Monday, mostly as a way to let everyone know I'm still kicking. Hope to see you there.
