Fall Colors

Forty percent humidity today, and a high of 67 degrees in my classroom. Needless to say, it's been a bit cold lately. In fact, my fingers were turning a lovely shade of blue by the time this little photo shoot ended!

I am really enjoying the challenge  of finding outfits to wear with my new shape. I tend to think that my belly looks like a spring tulip in this sweater. The skirt is courtesy of my lovely sister who is, I'm afraid, about two sizes smaller than I am. This might be the last time I wear this skirt, too. Sigh. Time to hit the local Goodwill for some more preggo pants.

Red Noses Go With Everything!

This was a hurried shoot, because nobody wants to see my parka every day. (Actually, I love my parka. It's from L.L. Bean and it's my favorite jacket ever...but it's not super fun to photograph every day.)

We had a two-hour delay today due to five inches of unexpected snow. Southern Colorado can be a little unpredictable - go figure. Nevertheless, my day was made better by the fact that I made up this new outfit. I've finally procured a pair of navy pants, which I think went well with my thrifted mustard sweater. I know, we were doing mustard last season...but I'm slow to catch up. And the thrift stores are slow(er) to absorb last season's cast-offs.

Baby's First Novel

Please excuse my diversion from regular outfit posting...but today is the first day of National Novel Writing Month, and I had to wear my awesome NaNoWriMo t-shirt! If you are so inclined I suggest you check out the NaNoWriMo challenge for adults, or the NaNoWriMo Young Writer's Program. If you've ever thought about, entertained the idea of, or considered writing a novel of your own, this is the time!

My novel this year will be based upon a manuscript that my Grandpa gave me last year. He said that it was passed down through my family and tells about my maternal Grandmother's family, who made the journey from Indiana to Washington. It's all here, and I'm fictionalizing the whole thing! Yay!
