I'm feeling a little lost this morning. I dropped The Sprog off for his first day of high school. I'm so excited for him and he's definitely ready for the change. But I can't figure out how it happened so fast. One moment my little boy was cuddled in my lap and the next this gangly almost-man is telling me I can just drop him in front of the school.
But I did spend lots of time working on two different sweaters I'm in the middle of knitting while watching hours and hours of Dr Who. Both sweaters are in "just knit" phases which means I don't need to think very hard about what I'm doing. My hands can do their thing while mind does something else. Very relaxing.
And I dyed my hair - finally! I got black dye everywhere (what a mess!) but in the end am very happy to have my ebony tresses back.
All in all it was a very nice experience.
This week's Share-in-Style prompt, "Sailor" inspired this outfit.
It's a bit of a departure from how I usually dress but that the fun of responding to outfit prompts! Besides, the fancy linen jacket (originally from Nordstrom but bought for a song at a thrift store) needed an outing this summer. The brooch has bits of abalone shell and the hair clip has a (faux) pearl. Definitely marine!
Here I am dreaming of sailing to far away places...
with Giant Dog at my side!
And on my wrist this really cool stretch bracelet made of scale-like celluloid pieces.
