Welcome to my website. I mostly talk about books and writing, but you never know what else I might chat about. I'm glad you're here!

Gloomy Day/Bright Colors

I hate it when the clouds cover the sun, especially when it’s April and we just got some nice snowy rainy sleet.  I’m tired of this.  I just want summer and sun and warm-weather clothes. So, what’s a girl supposed to do on a gloomy, cold, April morning?

Wear neon.

I was sifting through clothes baskets that are clean, but not folded and put away this morning when I held up a gauzy coral-ish orange shirt that flows freely and is light and comfortable.  H wandered over after his shower and asked if that’s what I was wearing to Easter.

“Nope.  Today,” I responded.

“Why?” he asked.  “Why are you dressing up for work?”

“Because I don’t want to go to work and I’m tired of the cold and I want to wear something bright.”

He smiled at me.  “Okay.  That shirt looks nice on you,” he said.

So I’m wearing bright orange today.2014-04-18 10.18.34

And I’m completely okay with it.

Happy Friday, everyone!  Oh!  The sun came out a little bit!  Can it finally be spring and stay spring?
