Today was my first opportunity to wear this vintage hat I bought last spring at Hand-Me-Ups. It has a union label, but no designer label. The design is interesting with the crown ever-so slightly off-kilter. It reminds me of those topsy-turvy cakes people have at weddings these days. This isn't an easy hat to wear, but it does look rather sophisticated once it is on-even on the likes of me!

Being Sunday, there was public silliness. Really, the three of us can't be trusted to behave together!
It was no small feat staying on that carriage as he raced through the store. Probably not the best activity in 4" heels. There's no graceful way to stand without my behind sticking out either.
I don't bother wondering what people must think...because I don't care.
Danny has his tools laid out like a surgeon.
That twisted-up wet tea towel has an inportant role wiping clean the rim and treads on the jars. It is an easy to overlook step, but having the damp towel at the ready helps ensure the task is completed. We use two-part jars with lids and screw-on bands, and the tiniest bit of food stuck under the lid would be enough to spoil the seal.
Hope you had a nice weekend, and the week ahead treats you well. Remember, when you hurt...ah, fuck it.
