Skirting the issue
Zut alors, I am behind again with my Web log! I have catching up to do. Tonight I will catch up. I have been slipshod with everything recently. I do not know what it is, I am like a six-year-old. It is all I can do to get dressed in the morning.
Honest, I keep thinking of kids trying to get out the door to get on the bus. That is me!
And speaking of your inner six-year-old, there is this skirt I bought last weekend at one of the garage sales I went to with my mom.
It is funny how you can fall in love with clothes! I remember being in kindergarten and wanting to wear the same skirt over and over. The nice thing is, now I am a grown-up and I can do that!
There is no one telling me not to!
So, this skirt. I paid $3 for it. It is Ann Taylor Loft. Knee length. Made in China. Light green and white print.
I came home from the garage sale and put it on. Then I went to my friend Gary's house that night wearing it.
We got home late and I put the skirt on the chair by the bed. Sunday morning I rolled out of bed and put the skirt on again and wore it to Mass.
Today I am wearing it again! I just cannot help it.
It is a great feeling when you find something new -- well, new to you, anyway, in my case -- that you love. Once in California I went to Goodwill and found a skirt, a short yellow skirt, I loved. I still have it somewhere. I will wear it once I get a chance to go through my summer clothes. Which may be never, let us not be naive.
