Musings & Miscellany


It’s another Lazy Saturday post, but there is nothing lazy about this coming weekend. I have been privileged (that word again) to be able to sponsor a women’s retreat this weekend, and will be there part of Saturday, and then I want to get our Halloween decorations up this weekend, along with the grocery shopping, and regular weekend runaround. Halloween is my favorite holiday, and our wedding anniversary as well! This year will be the big 25. We always know what we will be doing on our anniversary… Handing out candy to small monsters and monstresses!

I started my Baker’s Dozen Capsule last weekend, and it has already been making my days easier, except for needing to take a snap each day to document it. Pffffft. Forgot about that part. If you are looking for daily snaps you can find them on my Instagram.

Here’s a brilliant and quick video on questions to ask yourself before choosing a hairstyle. Hint: your face shape is NOT the first consideration! Take Imogen’s advice and eliminate “bad hair day” from your vocabulary. Yes, you can keep the ball cap, but now you won’t have the excuse!

If I have hours to spare, the YouTube rabbit hole down which I could tumble headlong is The Ultimate Fashion History. Amanda Hallay is immensely knowledgeable, and intensely funny, to boot! You would be hard pressed not to find a video that will interest you. There is something there for everyone, even those who can’t imagine fashion history being of any interest at all!

As I always try to include a “real book,” I didn’t want The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared to end. I realize I am late to the game, and that it was made into a movie in 2013, but OMGoodness. My poor husband has been subjected to more than half of it as I am unable to stop reading aloud to him every time I burst out laughing. Just when you think it can’t get any more ludicrous, it does.

Wishing you a peace-filled and/or restful weekend! Whichever it is you need to recharge…
