Hello Blogland!!! How is everyone today?? It was a somewhat somber day at work being the 11th anniversary of 9-11 working here on a military base. The somewhat odd thing is this Tuesday 9/11 is exactly like that Tuesday in 2001 was. A beautiful cool day with the most blue sky. Also ironically, 9-11 took place in the same week of September that the Battle of Antietam/Civil War took place. It still stands as the most bloodiest one day in American history with the horror of 9-11 coming in second. We must NEVER FORGET!!!
I’ve been getting my never-ending mending pile done. I swear the stuff multiplies when I’m not looking!! I’ve taken advantage of the fabulous cooler weather to pull out some fall stuff. Looking at the pictures I’m coming to the conclusion that I look better in long pants or maxi length skirts/dresses. Definitely taller and thinner. I’ll have to think this over in regards to wearing crops next summer. Maybe linen trousers would be a better choice. HMMMMMM
The cardigan I wore Monday is in the donate pile (it’s thrifted) It made me itch and break out in a rash!! I had to take it off at work and wear my black work hoodie (tres chic) It has no tag but there are “furry” fibers in the knitting so I’m thinking angora or maybe mohair. Whatever it is I can’t wear it!! There is a small “fleck” of magenta in the print of the cardi which is why I paired it with the magenta top.
Today’s outfit was super-neutral for me. Y’all know I love me some color but once in a while it’s fun to shake things up a bit. I thrifted the top for $3 yesterday and HAD to wear it today. I had a leopard print top on my “wish” list and now I have three!! A mock turtle T, the peasant one I found this weekend and this silky tunic. The leopard prints are all different. You can’t have too much leopard!!
Anyone else watching “The Voice”??? I started last nite-lots of talent out there. I’ll also give X-factor a look-see. I love me some singing competitions. I’m an american Idol fan since season 1. Of course, my TV boyfriend Mark Harmon and NCIS will soon be back on!!!
Everyone have a lovely evening and chat with y’all Thursday!
