This morning after walking Minnie, I decided to go to one of my favourite spots to walk and take pictures. It’s a crazy beautiful day today, so it’d be silly to not want to capture it. Yesterday and today we got the first frost of the season, and I keep looking at the weather report hoping for that tiny snowflake symbol. Here in the pacific northwest, however, that tiny snowflake symbol comes rarely in winter. It’s more like once or twice per winter we get a big dump of snow, and then it melts within 2 or 3 days. But alas…I keep hoping…maybe this year will be the one when we have a white Christmas.
As I was walking back to the car I noticed an area where the sun hadn’t quite gotten to, and it was covered in heavy frost. As I approached, the sun was just peaking up over the trees and shining on the frost, making it look like the whole area had been covered in glitter. So pretty.
…I celebrated my 27th. With pumpkin pie, of course…
…These things have been changing colour and falling like crazy. Best ever…
…It’s been cold enough in the mornings that this little one wears her plaid cloak for our walk…
…It’s been raining. A lot… (which I like)
…Walks in places like this get better and better…
…I’ve been editing/working in this kind of light. Much more relaxing. Also, lately I just redid the lining on my vintage jacket, which up until now has been named “Kitty”…however…
…As I was taking off the fur on the collar (to re-line it) I found a coat check ticket slipped in between the fur and the collar. Turns out Kitty’s name is actually Dolores. I plan on sewing the tag back into the coat, along with my name (and the date) on another piece of paper.
I’m excited that fall is in full swing. I’m taking full advantage of all the pumpkin/spiced/basically-any-festive-fall-foods that I can. All the while wearing slippers, cozy pyjamas and reading on the couch while it’s cold and rainy outside. Those are the best kinds of evenings.
I Hope your fall is going splendidly! Next thing we know it we’ll be singing Christmas songs and sipping eggnog. Oh wait…I’ve been doing that already…(to be fair, I’m practicing Christmas songs in choir, and Dave bought eggnog because it was on sale…so there. :P )
I’ve been watching a lot of 70′s TV shows lately…can you tell?
Last year I got this dress at the thrift store just before my birthday (*ahem* two weeks 1 day) and I failed to take any pictures during my birthday party, thus the dress was never shared. So a year later, here we are. To be honest though, fashion blogging has never really been my strongpoint. But every now and then…
I LOVE this dress. It’s comfortable…feels like a good fall outfit (and looks good with purple tights. Yes.)
Hah…side story: I never like taking pictures of myself outside because…well…people watch and it’s awkward. But today…Minnie watched. And barked. Maybe she could tell I looked awkward.
PS: I curled my hair three times today. THREE. My hairdresser says flat irons are the best for long lasting curls, but I tried and they all fell flat. I tried again with the flat iron after my walk (after all, it was a foggy damp morning) but those fell flat. I’m about to head out for this evening so I curled them again (with a curling iron)…and they are not looking so good. How on earth does one get curly hair to stay put??
