Here I am after a long day at work, pretending to be a supermodel. (cough:cough) Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my job? Yep, still do. This door leads into my bathroom from the pool. Hopefully, the pool will warm up soon and I can actually use it (the door and the pool). And the new Walmart shoes? Completely comfortable all day long. Love 'em!
I did actually make some bra keepers last night while watching Drop Dead Diva. I kinda love that show, even though it's kinda dorky. But then, so am I. It's good mindless Sunday night entertainment. Anyway, the bra keepers not only kept my bra straps in check but eliminated the need to tape down the neckline.
As you can see, I went with the sash. It's just a length of the border looped around the waistband and through the gathering loop (you'd have to be familiar with the pattern to know what that means), and then tied in a double knot. I had a nice compliment on my dress early in the day and I said, "Thank you, I made it." And she said, "WHAT?" lol And then at our weekly department meeting, my coworker announced that I had made my dress and we all had a little conversation about that, ending with me saying, "Nope, no wedding dresses," to my coworker who just recently became engaged. She didn't ask, but I wasn't leaving anything to chance. With age comes wisdom. ;-)
Here's the back view. The neck is still a vee and it looks floppy only because of my posture for this pose. What the heck was I looking at?
Here's the trippy pup staring intently into the plant, willing a lizard to appear. I think he's addicted now. It's easy to joke now that I know he's OK.
And Dani, who would spend every minute of every day and night out here if we let her. She prefers to hunt the squirrels but has been known to nab a lizard. Or 50.
I had this idea to take pics of all the flowers currently in bloom in my yard but it was going to take me an hour to resize and upload all of them so you get just one. Hibiscus. You can see my bathroom door above the back bloom in the center of the pic, to give you some idea of where I was standing in the first pic. It's a really nice yard. I hope I get to stay here for a long, long time. It's even nicer because it comes with a yard service.
