Old and Older

Stripes and Leopard and Bubbles--Sunday, 5/24/15

I can easily replicate these three elements of the outfit below for a comfy weekend ensemble.


Here's my take on it.

*Black/red/beige striped short-sleeved T (thrifted, Kohls), $4.00/wear
Black cardigan (Walmart), $0.91/wear [woo, below $1]
Bootcut jeans (thrifted, JCP), $0.33/wear
Red bubble necklace (Outfit Additions), $2.33/wear
Leopard flats (Nordstrom), $8.33/wear

I don't have any tattoos, but otherwise--nailed it.

I've shown you the exercise area/TV/sofa view of my living room before.  Here is the little wall next to the sofa that has the St George poster I picked up at the Treasury in the Munich Residenz on our family German vacation 15 years ago or so.  (Can y'all believe it's been that long?)  The small table is actually patio furniture, but we stuck it here while it was frozen over on our balcony and it seems to have made itself at home.  Robert piled all those tiny stuffed animals (two frogs, two bunnies, and one javelina) on top of the wooden cat (that I purchased over 25 years ago in high school at the health food store in my hometown) and put it all out of the way on the table, where it is now one of the world's silliest centerpieces.  (I fell in love with that cat at first sight, but it was $50, so I didn't buy it.  By the time my mom and I had driven the 5 minutes or so from the store to home, I was feeling sad and regretful about it, and my mom encouraged me that we should go back immediately and get it.  I'm so glad I listened to Mom!  Sie ist ein richtiger Schatz!)

In other news...Seeing all these photos of our apartment, I'm really glad not to be moving any time soon.  My sister just moved to a new apartment in her city (again).  Tam's cousin is 3/4 of the way across the country next month.  I hope to be staying here for a while.

I feel sick about the flooding that's ravaging OK and TX this weekend.  For example, the Blanco River at San Marcos, just south of Austin, crested at over 43 feet--the flood stage is 13 feet.  It rose 17 feet in 30 minutes--how is that even possible?

I haven't heard about any flooding in Sand Springs, but Sapulpa has been hit. Luckily, our house is so high up from the river that we would need Noah's ark if it flooded here.

Yes, you're in pretty good shape short of the End of the World in your location.

Sorry to hear that Sapulpa has taken damage, though.
