My bed has been unmade for several days
as I have spent the better part of the past week hunkered down.
Pepper has been my companion and she seems to like napping with me.
I cannot decide if I have a bug or am over tired or have something else unknown going on...
I've made an appointment with my doctor just to be on the safe side
but he's a busy GP so I will not see him for another few days.
Many of my co workers have been sick too
so I know something is worming it's way through the ranks.
I make a very bad patient on all fronts.
I get frustrated laying about
and feel so unproductive.
I'd never be the kind of woman who likes to eat bon bon's in bed!
I have finished The Distant Hours and it was a great read.
I read her other book The House at Riverton
and I also have The Forgotten Garden on my book stack waiting.
I did get myself up and dressed to attend the memorial service for my BFF's husband's father.
I found it challenging trying to decide on my OOTD
with a foggy brain...
Black ponte knit skirt, Joe
nightshade hose, Secret
black leather boots, Naturalizer
grey V neck jersey top, Talbots
grey vest, Orange
a light spritz of eau de toilette
The service was held at the Yacht Club
and many familiar boaters were in attendance.
It felt good to connect with all the family
and to take a few moments to look at the board of photos taken throughout the years
and see his deck chair, burgee and boaters cap on display.
Driving home I felt a melancholy rise up in my chest...
Michael Buble's Crazy Love CD was playing in the car and I cranked it up on Whatever it Takes My Love
and had a good weep.
Music moves me
it always has and continues to do so...
I hope you'll take a few minutes and have a listen
to Michael and Ron Sexsmith
as they weave their melodic magic on this early Saturday morning...
What are your weekend plans?
I'll bet they are much more exciting than mine!
I plan to sink my teeth into a new novel
and keep hydrated
while keeping warm in bed.
You'll find me wearing LuLulemon Yoga pants in grey
and an oversized grey sweatshirt (eons old) by Tommy Bahamas
warm cashmere socks
my hair will be piled atop my head
and crudely fastened with a black plastic claw clip
no make up,
but plenty of Avene deep conditioning moisturizer
and a swash of Burt's Bee's lip gloss in pink
It's me at my least glamourous...
but it's the real me.
