A Rainy Day….

Today I was expecting a Fed Ex package , a gift for my almost 14 year old son…

When planning an outfit, I chose the poncho first, hoping to hide the small package , so my dear son would have no idea the size or shape of the box… 

A definite issue for a mother of a homeschooling child…

I gave the Fed Ex guy a good laugh when I tucked the package under my poncho and explained I was hiding it from a b’day child… He needed a laugh as it was torrential downpouring as he brought the package to my door and he was saying it was a rough day…

I really like how these colors look together and definitely feel they are  colors from nature.

I also think the snakeskin purse really is a wonderful neutral and deserves more use… 

I like the way the purse is lighter than the darks, but more a midtone and not a sharp contrast. 

Not a good hair day with the rain, but at least the sun peeked out later, allowing for dry photo shoot...

Dear Readers,  I never like rainy, grey days, but have to say when it happens on a Monday, it always feels worse…Not a good start for my mood….

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son was in his room reading and never heard the Fed Ex package arrive, so the surprise is solid.

I am grateful that my husband had a successful day at work a  good start for what promises to be a very busy week…

I am grateful that my daugher received her last notice from graduate school applications and is now closer to picking between just two of the four acceptances… 

I am grateful that I completed all the verification paperwork for my son’s financial aid ( a pain I put off for two days)

I really love that snakeskin purse! I have a pair of snakeskin patterned flats and now I’ve thrifted a pretty gray/cream blouse in that pattern. I’ll be glad when it warms up more so I can wear it.
And I definitely always love a slip on mule shoe. 🙂
