not buy new clothes for a year (10.04.13 - 10.04.14) (read all 16 entries…)
big purchase

I was down to 0 walking shoes [besides my exercise sneakers] and ordered a pair of boat shoes and sneakers, adding $64.03 to the running total. Hopefully, they’ll pass the walking test. (Walking shoes: ones one can comfortably walk several miles in; socks optional.)

I’ll likely add sunglasses to the list soon. I own(ed) three pairs, but two are missing and two are notably scratched & bent (picture a Venn diagram).

Running total:
jeans
+ skirt
+ dress
+ dress
+ flats
+ orchid hair clip
+ 9 black dresses
+ 2 pairs of shoes
= ~$142.53



100 day happy picture challenge (read all 2 entries…)
Day 2

It’s hard to decide today.

The top contenders, in random order:

1. My favorite glass. It’s vintage, an amazing thrift store find, and an ergonomic phenomenon.

2. Our tortoise outside, eating dandelion. It’s outdoor weather again for our growing guy/gal.

3. Le Petite Monstre playing with water on the back porch. Not having her in all of the pictures will be a challenge.

I think I should do one which brings attention to the newly warm weather and save celebrating the glass for a rainy day.



100 day happy picture challenge (read all 2 entries…)
1.

My friend came across this challenge with (I’m told) is currently making the rounds on the interwebs. She asked that we all do it as a group – 100 days, 100 pictures (each) of things that made us happy.

Yesterday was Day 1. My dogs stole a loaf of sourdough bread, but I couldn’t help but be entertained by those guilty Boston Butts.
