WIW again, Heading into the Weekend
Can I get away with another What I Wore quickie, low on the chat? The term pace has slacked off a little bit, now, as my students work on their research papers, and once I clean up the last bit of marking (about 15 papers), I should have two fairly light work weeks. (Of course, that's only if I ignore the reality that I'm teaching a brand new-to-me course next term, and have to get moving on the prep for it. . . .the reading never, ever stops).
These slower weeks during term, however, always reveal what got sacrificed during the intense rhythm of the first 8 weeks. I managed to get a cleaning team in here last week, Hallelujah! (Pater means well, even cleans well, but we have different tolerance levels for different tasks). But sorting out household filing, some financial tasks, catching up on personal correspondence, making appointments with dentist, doctor, optometrist, and audiologist, spa (What? I really, really need a facial! It's about the incipient moustache as much as it is about needing to be pampered.)
As well, increasing my running mileage not only takes more weekly minutes. . . well, okay, hours. . . but it also demands extra from my body -- uh, duh, what was I expecting? . . so I'm tired and need to find some napping time.
I do have many ideas for blogposts, but for now, they have to remain ideas, almost-drafts, until I'm energetic and organized enough to write them. Meanwhile, I've been snapping my outfits in the door mirror as I head off to work in the morning, and if they're halfway decent, I'll share them with you. As with Wednesday's, this is one I added Text to with PicMonkey. In case you can't read that lettering, here's the lineup:
brown v-neck pullover, Bompard; leather jacket, Mackage; printed skirt, Smart Set (a Canadian HighStreet/Mall franchise -- haven't shopped there in years, but I love this skirt); Acne boots.
