Casual Weekend Wear…

Posted on: May 18, 2014

Sunday was a very lazy day for me….

I am still trying to get my sleep patterns back in order after a week of crazy sinus issues….

I haven’t succeeded as I didn’t fall asleep until 5am… and was back up before 11am…

Warning this post took a surprisingly sentimental twist.. I never know what is coming when I sit down to write….


I felt like wearing vibrant colors to embrace our cooler temps after a week of unseasonably hot temps…

I began with the pants , then grabbed the blouse and pulled the green color out of the blouse print for my sweater choice..

That really is the easiest way to put together a look, pull colors from a print piece…


Funny, I typed that last line and instantly went to my mother’s funeral where one of the women from the church told me that she so admired my mother’s ability to put colors together…. That was her trick to pick an inconspicuos color in a print…..The woman who mentioned that at the funeral knew of my mother’s skill in this because my mother babysat her son and would do clothing changes and she would come home and marvel over what combinations my mother put together…. She raved about it to my mother and made my mother feel so appreciated and happy…


I love that memories like that swirl around me, especially with times like rigtht now… You see my mother wanted so much to attend my daughter’s high school graduation and died in March, missing it.. With that being the first family event without her, I cannot help but feel that loss again as my son is getting ready to graduate from high school… It’s so funny to remember this young man at 13 giving his grandmother’s eulogy and telling his sister that my mother would have the best seat in the house for her graduation…. I hope he remembers that as he crosses that stage for his diploma…


I am grateful that I indeed had the less active slower weekend I really needed

I am grateful that I have such wonderful memories to cherish…

I am grateful that my daughter lent me her camera, something hard for her to do…( I bought myself a new one, not so expensive one , but if my daughter’s takes this quality, it should do fine..)

I am grateful for these new fun recipes for fused water , as anyone who concentrates on weight maintenance knows the importance of drinking water…

I am grateful that my sinus issues seem to have passed for now!

Sharing the fruit fused water recipes with you my dear readers…

And how about this unusual Idea…..Cinnamon Water-   Thanks  to my friend Erin for pointing me in the direction of this recipe. Must buy some cinnamon sticks.

When you dine at WoodSpoon restaurant in Los Angeles, the waiter often brings a carafe of ice water with a cinnamon stick inside. It’s an unusually refreshing beverage – and one that’s easy to make at home, too.
