On the other hand:
On my iTouch, the weather app face is a little picture of a sun and a temperature reading of 73 degrees. So when I get up in the morning and turn it on, I always have this frisson of pleasure, then disappointment because 73 is like a magical number. What a perfect temperature. When I was a teenager, I knew I could go sunbathe in my bathing suit if it was 73 degrees. Isn't it always 73 degrees in Hawaii, or something? I confess that I could easily live out the rest of my life anywhere that holds a constant, steady 73 degrees.
Here's a pic of our pond. I love how the look of the pond changes from day to day.
If I hadn't been doing this project, I probably wouldn't have gone to the trouble of taking this picture. I try to keep images like this in my mind, but the Internet is, sadly, much more reliable for archiving.
I'm happy to announce that the Norma Kamali gray sweater/coat has been redeemed! I put it on in the morning with a scoop neck white t-shirt and gray leggings. The entire ensemble was dull as dishwater. So I ditched the knitted self-belt and replaced it with a big woven leather one that is much better for the sweater when it comes to scale. I added a black turtleneck, black boots, and leggings. Finally, I'm loving this sweater.
Norma Kamali gray sweater/coat: $20; No Boundaries belt: $8; Norma Kamali leggings: $10; Chaus turtleneck $12 (Sam's Club); L.E.I. faux sueded slouchy boots: $29; pearl stud earrings: $7
Can't wait to wear this again!
And one last Halloween treat that won't rot your teeth--The pumpkins that Bengal and I carved. Now they are getting nice and gooey and scary on the porch.....
Hope your week is full of blessings--and chocolate. Kind of the same thing!
