This is how my day started:
I'm going to be crude here, but in order to get ready for work this morning I had to do what my father used to term a "whore bath." That's where you stand in the tub with a bucket and a rag and wash the "important" parts. Ahem. I also washed my hair, which is equally important. ;-) The biggest pain was emptying all the darn bottles into a big bucket. Arghhhh.
As you might have guessed, we didn't have water when I woke up this morning. And we still don't have it now. And I'm really spittin' nails since someone is just now getting back to the project at nearly 10 PM. It seems a certain boob tube was more important. I'm really hoping it gets fixed before morning, but I'm not optimistic so I've got my back-up case of water ready. I decided it's more of a pain to pack to go to a hotel than to do bath gymnastics with bottled water. Plus, the dogs.
Luckily, I was cheered up by the arrival of yet more shoes. One pair is a duplicate of the semi-metallic brown shoes but in taupe suede. They're very oooo-ahhhh, but unfortunately they feel half a size too big even though they're the same size, and so back they go. I sure wish I had invented Zappos.
But these I think are staying.
Yes, I know they are not my *most* flattering style, but I still love them. So hush. ;-)
Plus, they're extremely comfortable and are going to look great with my Moneypenny Pussycat blouse. And a twin set I bought a few weeks ago that you haven't seen yet. The color is Cabernet Savignon, which makes them even prettier, right? I love the shiny black accents too. But my orange toenails are going to have to go. By the way, this is NOT what I wore to work today. It's the top half of what I wore out to dinner with Alex and then a skirt thrown on in place of the jeans so I could "model" the shoes.
As you can see, I didn't do diddly squat about my dresser top last night. I was sawing logs by 11:30 PM. I don't think I'm going to do anything about it tonight either. But it's on my short list, especially since I've put it all out here. ;-)
Speaking of the blouse, here's the fabric I'm going to use for the skirt to go with it. It's very similar to the skirt I had on the other night, but just enough lighter to not be such a drab combo, I think. (Especially with those shoes!) It's lightweight wool crepe, so it ought to sew like a dream and drape beautifully. If I ever sew it.
