Ice Breaker

I couldn’t wipe this stupid grin off my face, today. I was too excited, awaiting my evening Toastmasters meeting and delivery of my first speech: The Ice Breaker.

Raspberry Repeat

As I was driving to work this morning, I looked down at my outfit and thought, “Gee, this looks familiar.” It turns out that I wore almost this exact outfit last January. Don’t worry, I won’t repeat it a third time. I’m tired of taping this dress closed over my boobs. It’s going in the donation pile.

I hurried home after my calls to change and take Jackson to the vet. He did not appreciate getting his temperature taken. (But all is well. He has kennel cough, despite vaccination, but no fever.)

Old Navy

Old Navy is mostly a miss for me. The styles are too basic (and the few interesting garments sell out quickly). The sizing is so erratic it seems almost arbitrary. Every so often, though, I find an interesting basic that fits, like this dress. And you can’t beat Old Navy’s prices - especially when there’s a sale and you use your Gap card.

Winds of Change

I love windy days in Sacramento. The rushing air seems to promise better (or wetter) things to come.

My new favorite photo spot is Parking Lot B in the Vic Fazio Yolo Wildlife Area. The view of Sacramento across the marsh is especially beautiful when the clouds are blowing across the sky.

Walk It

My recent running injuries may have been one of the best things to happen to my style and health. They forced me to buy, and wear, more sensible shoes. When I’m wearing a low, chunky heel, I don’t dread the walk from my car to a salon. My 30 lb bag seems to weigh only 20. Inventorying a color bar isn’t a torture session. I think I’ll make a habit of purchasing shoes I can walk in.
