I was delighted when I saw this picture of Amber.
She and I have thrifted the same 70s REI anorak. These days I wouldn't be caught dead shopping at the mock-log-house-monstrosity that is, but this Co-op era jacket is awesome. I sincerely hope that their current wares are equally durable an well-designed.
Today was a kind of a non-starter, due to lack of sleep last night, something that almost never happens to me. I bummed around, went for a wee walk, dug in the garden, wrote, made dinner from the back of the cupboard. Nothing spectacular, but a good day all the same. It's lovely to be at home together, just the two of us, with little that has to get done (though lots that needs doing). The wind in the trees, in the garden we heard an eagle sing, yes! sing. Just before dusk C. saw two herons flying low above our house.
Here's the rest of what I wore today:
I got this dress from the Dump last summer, wore it once to work where it garnered tons of compliments and then promptly forgot about it, in spite the fact that it's a perfect fit, flattering, and in my latest favorite color: purple. I shall be wearing this more often to be sure.
I'm also wearing two amethyst necklaces, from the Dump and the thrift store. Amethyst is my birthstone and for whatever reason people are always giving me them, whether they know it's my birthstone or not.
It's like Eugene Hutz always says: Start Wearing Purple!
