Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today we officially open the pool for the season and despite the cold temps, Pool Care Specialist will be onsite to reassemble the parts and add the necessary chemicals.  Every year I think about  purchasing a better pool cover so that the water won’t be too dirty when opened in the Spring.  It’s been over 10 years and I still haven’t gotten it but thanks to the mild winter it doesn’t look too bad and by Memorial Day weekend it will be sparkling clear.

We definitely will be getting a new Solar Cover because there is nothing worse than jumping into cold water!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Hubby’s day was nice and I want to thank you for all the birthday well wishes.  I didn’t get the Walgreen’s Gift Card but did cook a wonderful meal, we had baked salmon, stuffed clams, steamed potatoes and coleslaw, dessert was a Lemon Meringue Pie which is his favorite.

I had hoped for warmer weather to wear this sleeveless BisouBisou Peplum top, but it’s a rainy drab day so I added a lightweight cardigan.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Being outside this morning was a little more bearable because of the lack of wind however, the temps are forecast to remain in the teens until at least the weekend. To that end, I would like to say to all of my left coast friends …”STOP COMPLAINING BECAUSE IT’S 40 DEGREES!!!

I truly don’t mind the cold weather because it allows me to dress in layers and then make adjustments as necessary. For example today I am wearing a sleeveless grey dress covered with a blazer so if I have a “personal summer” I can simply remove the blazer until it passes.

This outfit started with shoes but in the sunshine the tights took on a weird greenish tint so I changed to my OTK, black suede boots.

This black faux fur once belonged to my sister so you know it’s been around since the late 80’s – I really don’t like driving in it because of the bulk.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

I apologize if when you read today’s title you thought I would be posting about Barefoot or Lindeman Sweet Red Wines – nope, it’s not Friday nor is this Instagram!
Today’s posted outfit is Wine in color, or you could call it Oxblood or you could call it Burgundy – whatever … I chose Wine because it starts with a “W” and so does Wednesday – u so silly!  How would you describe the color?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, I hope your day is proceeding according to plans.

 Today we are experiencing more unseasonably warm weather but the temps are expected to plummet tonight with a cold blast of winter winds.  This weekend I’ll sort through my “bin o sweaters” to determine which ones I’ll kept and which ones to donate.  I am not looking forward to the cold weather ahead but it’s the price we pay for living on the east coast.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

Today is Tayair’s first day of work  – Yay, Congratulations and welcome to the wonderful world of adulthood!  He was hired as a seasonal employee for Amazon.com and will be packing those wonderful holiday gifts being shipped from Delaware.

Today is also “Preppy Day” at Appo High School and here’s Malik’s version of being preppy.

Today was also the first time I used the tripod and timer and I must admit that it’s harder smiling for a camera when there is no one behind it – lol

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day and Halloween Wednesday.  

I am finally back to work after being off since last Thursday and it’s all good in the neighborhood!  This denim riveted skirt has been hanging in my closet for almost a year, hubby gave it to me and I love the big side pockets.  I was in search of a pair of booties from Goodwill but found these at Rugged Wearhouse for $10.00 (woohoo).  I am not overly impressed with the pairing of the shirt, so my next search will be of a plaid to give the outfit a more country look, right now it’s a little Gypsy!

We will not be participating in trick or treating this year – sorry kids, please don’t egg my house

but if you are, be safe and don’t take any candy from strangers – lol!!!
