I am so happy to be home! As soon as I arrived, the first thing I did was sit down at the dining room table (with Law & Order playing on my laptop) and consume a gigantic meal. It was glorious. I ate sparsely on the train, although I did have a bit of dried mango and day-old French fries. After assuaging my hunger and doing some work on my computer, I went to therapy. Then I took Button, the neighbor's dog, for a walk. It is so great to get $10 for hanging out with a nice dog. Then I took my own dog for a walk, and now, as I type this, I'm sitting in my backyard while two of my rabbits munch on lettuce and the other two frolic boisterously. Hopefully the next time I get gloomy, I'll think about how pleased I am right this minute.
So, new dress: I won a giveaway on Bon Marche Couture (the blog) and got to pick out some stuff from Bon Marche Couture (the shop). The other item I selected was a dreamy rose dress, but if I were choosing again, I would be sorely tempted by a springtime sundress that totally wouldn't fit me. Anyway, it took me a while to wear this blue house dress because it needed extensive repairs, and I'm lazy. I finally mended it while watching The Unit with my parents.
Awkward stain-covering embroidery. I might need to add more, on the sleeve cuffs (not pictured, obviously).
