For someone that isn't fond of red, I wear a lot of it.
I was dressed in red almost exclusively as a child because my mum thought I looked good in it-which I did, but everyone needs a bit of variety in their wardrobe. Worse. she'd buy things like coats too big and I'd still be wearing the red Hudson's Bay blanket coat she bought me in grade four when I was in High School. I finally threw it away on my way to school one day, and told her I lost it on the bus. No, I'm not in love with wearing red but all these years later I admit she had a point-it is my best colour.
1980's silk dress-Goodwill
1970's polyester jacket-Thrift World
Vintage Stylecraft purse-Godwill
Vintage Brooch-New Life Thrift
Fragrance- Watt Blue for men (el-cheapo cologne in a wacky bottle that smells of vetiver, oakmoss, mint, and cedar. It was instant love. Like Cool Water without the headache inducing aquatic notes).
How impossible is it to photograph patent leather?
Today's cocktail is a Bunny Hug:
1 oz. gin
1 oz. whisky
1 oz Anesone
Shake well with ice and strain into a glass.
We'll be doing some birding this weekend (Danny has bird-banding, and there's a local lake that's been attracting an unusual collection of species). I had to laugh at how Danny left this toy owl atop his bird guide. The little fellow looks like he's studying.
"Oooh, I wonder if they have Little Bunting at Branched Oak Lake?"
We're in the planning stages of a spring trip out to Western Nebraska on the Colorado border so Danny can see some birds we don't get around here. Our state is very wide and 500 miles can be a significant difference with respect to local birds. I've only been out that way once, years ago and there were signs posted everywhere about rattlesnakes. We won't be camping!
Hope you're having a nice weekend. We had our first bit of snow, but it mostly melted as it hit the ground.
