Chambray Boots…

Posted on: November 5, 2014

I am an eternal optimist and a realist…

I woke up this morning feeling much better than when I’d gone to bed  and thought,

“Oh good, I can go to my son’s first small group coaching  for bowling!”  

By late afternoon reality hit and I was huddled under two blankets with a hat shivering trying to get warm…

So much for the low grade fever…

Well, at least I managed to get dressed and take a short jaunt for a few groceries….

I unpacked my faux fur vest and couldn’t wait to take advantage of the 70 degree day to wear it…

I recalled vividly an outfit I put together last year with chambray and brown and discovered it was actually two years ago…

That’s not too surprising as this vest was a “You’ve lost weight and can now own the bulkiness of a vest purchase!”

These next three photos I am posting to humor my young photographer who decided to play today with something new…

None of these have been cropped, they are what he chose to take…

I looked at this one and thought , yep love my cheekbones and single dimple….

How nice of my son to feature a shot with my fabulous purse from Just Fab

and my new boots….

These blue boots  were purchased in Ireland because I loved the color so much!  

I actually sought out a charity store to give my black boots I’d taken on the trip, so I would have room 

in my suitcase to bring these home….

I had to laugh at his composition in this photo as the one afterwards was a full length shot…

You can’t tell here as much , but my head is cocked funny and looks weird full length…

Gratitude

I am grateful that my being sick meant my son and his father got some guy time to go to the bowling alley without me….

I am grateful to my husband for agreeing to take Tuesday late afternoon and early evenings off to be part of the bowling coaching for our son.

I am grateful that my son came home from the coaching session and was quite frankly worn out  ( he needs the physical activity) and liked the coach and is looking forward to going back next week..(he’s a kid that always acts disinterested and I have to push to try things and give him the out if he doesn’t like it… probably a common trait for the youngest of four, lol!  I feel like it’s a dance we do and have perfected the steps on….)

I am grateful that I at least felt better most of the day and my sore throat from yesterday has subsided… still no headache either, Can’t believe that one as it’s such a common issue for me!!!!

I am grateful to my son for taking the initiative and playing with pictures and having fun with the chore of being my photographer…
