Wow, where did last week go? Sorry about that. I'm not the sort of person that gets laid-out by colds/flu but this one really did (and continues to) kick my ass. Don't worry, I won't cough on your computer screen.
Most of the last couple weeks remain a blur in my mind, but I snapped some photos here and there when I absolutely had to get dressed, and go out. Well, I didn't go out today, because Omaha had a tornado (see previous post). I don't understand storm-chasing. I mean, why would you want to go looking for a tornado?! Anyway, I did get dressed nicely today, but one look at the weather forecast made me re-think my plans for the day. I'm glad we stayed home. Still, no point wasting a perfectly nice outfit, so....
Vintage nylon wrap skirt-Goodwill
1970's leather and tapestry Spanish-made handbag-Salvation Army, Lincoln
Vintage 1940's Naturalizer shoes-Thrift World
Bakelite bangles (both arms) various stores
Vintage lucite earrings-Hand-Me-Ups
Vintage beaded necklace-Hand-Me-Ups
I'll give you a glimpse of some other interesting stuff I've worn recently but am too tired-out to write a post for. You'll forgive me, I hope. My brain just isn't working at capacity right now.
Modern shirt and skirt, vintage accessories.
More modern clothing with vintage accessories. All clothing, thrifted.
My inner-Hyacinth Bucket was screaming to be let out. head-to-toe 70's vintage. I'd say I'm dressed like my nan...but she dressed much better than this!
And that's about it for the week. I made it to the Spring Affair plant sale, but my heart wasn't in it this year. We bought a few herbs and flowers, but nothing terribly special. The garden does look good (after all this rain, it should!) but I've not really been able to get out there to do much.
Our holiday has been quiet, and house guest-free for which I'm quite grateful this year. I don't think I could have managed a big seder. We're eating lots of salads from the garden, and fish which limits the amount of cooking I need to do. I have enough sense to know when it is time to plant myself on the sofa in front of the television, and call it a day.
I'm going to need my rest because tomorrow I'm picking up 40 lbs. of apricots so Danny can do the yearly, "Apricot Olympiad". The first crop of California apricots are more expensive, but they're always nicer. We were able to negotiate a good price this year, so that was lucky. Danny's planning jam, preserves, apricot butter, apricot chutney, pickled apricots, and some other stuff I've forgotten. The best of the caning will be his State Fair entries in September, so there's quite a bit riding on getting good apricots. Anyway, that's our weekend plans. I'm getting tired just thinking about it, so I;d better go have a lie down. Between apricots, the flu, and a tornado I'm ready for a snooze.
I hope your week is going well.
