The weather cooled a little so I wore a skirt and sweater-yay, favourite outfit.
The skirt is thrift, the sweater new, the shoes new and the glass bead necklace thrift. I took a close up to show off the necklace, which I love and forgot there was a spray bottle of cat vomit cleaner behind me. Well, this is a reality blog. There is also the reality of my hair flips, shiny scrubbed morning face, and general goofy look.
Then it felt even colder so I changed my skirt to a longer, warmer one. It's navy with a white stripe but it doesn't show up well in pictures. At least not the kind of hasty and terrible pictures I take, with my out of focus face. It's meant to be a maxi skirt but it can actually be hiked up and worn like a strapless dress or sort of scrunched up to make it a less maxi and more midi. As a maxi it's a bit too mermaid style for my taste and I am not a strapless dress person, but like this I am quite comfortable.
The writer's club of two meets every last Friday of the month. I always look forward to this as I love my dear friend and of course the chance to talk about and share writing is not something I have with many people. I presented her with a second short story. It connects to my previous story which she loved and made me feel quite full of confidence. This story, since it contains scenes of gay love and sex, which I hope I wrote with good taste and compassion, is not a story I will share with my parents. They don't really know what to make of my writing but this story would leave them speechless.
Almost as fun as writing, is shopping so Sheila and I did some. She needed me to convince her to buy the most gorgeous leather cross body bag, which she had wanted for ages but had felt guilty buying. We looked at it and a whole bunch of others but she kept going back to the one she really liked. I'm so happy she bought it for herself. Sheila has very good taste. Of course she does; we like mostly the same things and she likes my stories. Clearly her taste is excellent.
More glass beads, yay!
Please tell me that either the awesomeness of my shoes or the blinding whiteness of my legs will detract from my weird hair.

Have lovely weekend! I hope it is full of sunshine.
