Hearts



Lately I have been selling off some of my shoes that I no longer wear on Poshmark. Not only have a cleared out some of my closet, I have also had some Posh credit to play with. When I stumbled across this dress and it was an instant buy. It is the same brand as the one in my post a couple of weeks back, it is a little too big in the waist but overall I adore it. I am always excited to add more red to my wardrobe, I have been told it is my color and I wholeheartedly agree. I tend to lean towards warm colors more than cool.
The past few days have had a nice breeze. I love warm weather but the pup I walk gets hot on our walks (guess I would too if I couldn't sweat) and even a bit of a breeze makes it so much more pleasant for him.
I just got a new seatbelt pad (a pink shag one) and it is shedding a bit, time to put a lint roller in the car

Clip in ponytails are the way to go in hot weather. It looks like you spent forever on your hair with only a few minutes work. I swear my hair took less than five minutes to put my hair in a bun, dry shampoo my bangs and tease them a bit, then put on the ponytail. Plus it is a great way to hide two (or three) day hair. And now that that horrid burgundy dye mess is almost out of my roots my hair almost matches my ponytail again. Needless to say, water/sweat proof makeup and setting spray is a godsend too.



The 2016 Ravellenic Games were a success. I challenged myself and was able to medal in 3 events.
I made a TARDIS shawl, a granny square bag, and 3 large knitted winter headbands.







I earned some laurels too. The last one is for number of projects.



Apart from my car repairs, things have been pretty uneventful lately so I have had lots of time for KnitFlixing (currently watching Murdoch Mysteries). The Ravellenics really revved me up,  I liked the headband pattern so much I bought more chunky yarn and I am knitting them for holiday gifts. I hadn't picked up my knitting needles for several years so it was nice to get excited about knitting again, I mainly crochet nowadays.


I am looking forward to a quiet evening in tonight. Fridays are my "me" day, I have a glass or two of wine, paint my nails, soak my feet, and do a facial mask.
