we've got a flight to catch this morning, so I'm going to run. Just wanted you to know that the tooth is going to require a crown, but not a root canal, and the work can wait a couple of weeks. Appointments are all lined up at the new-to-me dental office my husband's been going to for years, and I'm feeling really good about them (although the hit to my wallet will hurt a bit).
So I'm all set to sit in the sunshine by a pool with Pater and my sisters and brothers and their partners. . . Back next week, and hoping Vancouver might have arranged some better weather by then.
If you haven't yet seen the post where Sue (of High Heels in the Wilderness) calls me an "It Woman" -- well, you'll want to stop giggling and go check it out -- Her thinking about style is always interesting, balanced, and realistic, and I like her perspective on the phenomenon of "It Girls" for Women of a Certain Age. . . . even if I can't really think of myself as any kind of It Woman at all (but am, I admit, quite chuffed that someone else might have thought that, however briefly).
Even We It Women (hahahaha) need help from those with better eyes for jewelry length, and Duchesse lent me the benefit of that eye last week when I posted photos of the outfit I wore to the opera. Duchesse left me a helpful comment about a fairly simple fix I'd never thought of -- and then she posted a very useful primer on determining the proper length for wearing your pearls. Gorgeous photos of pearls to enjoy as well. . .
And while I'm pointing you in various directions, I'll just mention that I've a new post up on my Reading Blog.
Now if you'll excuse me, there's a budget plane seat waiting for me, and after that, a chaise longue, poolside. . .
