This skirt was also in the enormous two year mending pile. I like it's shininess.
There is absolutely nothing else to say about this outfit. I was a few weeks ago and I can't remember anything else about that day. And as such, I need to blog more often so that I don't sound like a nincompoop.

Today I'm thankful for finding old things and being able to use them again.

So here's the thing. I've always hated the idea of the gym. Our ancestors would think that we are crazy to go inside and run around going no where, accomplishing nothing. Of course, our ancestors were also out tilling the field and making babies to help till the field and had no time for leisure.
I always thought that I'd rather go outside or play a spot. Except that I didn't. I'm pretty good at convincing myself not to do something.
So when we got back to Canada after travelling the Gentleman Caller and I decided to get (slightly more) fit. We found a gym that cost only $10 a month. WHAT A BARGAIN!
We've been going 4 times week so it's pretty good return for money. But going that often means that I needs exciting outfits that make me feel fabulous. And by going more often I am more confident to wear sassier things. It's a pretty good circle to be in.

And while going to the gym hasn't made one ounce of different in my weight, it's made heaps of difference in my strength. I love going to the gym and blasting through my pervious personal record.
Today I'm thankful for having a body that is strong enough to carry me around in my day to day life. Really, I'm pretty lucky.
I'm around. I'm just having unpacking, decorating, coffee making, heat, busy, tiredness going on.
And a computer that is being a brat. Just because I have 20,000 photos on it doesn't mean it's time to slow down. (It actually means that I need to hit delete because I have them all saved on my hard drive and am just emotional and paranoid).
Lover of naps, cuddles, wine on patios, travelling, shoes, friends in near and far off places, food, blogs, dancing and most of all giggling.
Philosophy: We are here for such a short time. Shouldn't we be using it to take good care of each other? Shouldn't we have small adventures while we are planning big ones? Shouldn't we all encourage and share our magical talents? Shouldn't we be filling the world with nothing but lovely things?
Yes! Just jump if you have the courage, just jump and be happy!
