Here we are, smack dab in the middle of summer, the humidity high and the heat index even higher. It’s too hot and rainy to go outside and play, so I’ve been spending most of my days indoors, working and reading—not much to talk about on a blog. So I’ve let it slide, until I started getting e-mails from friends asking if I was okay.
I’m fine. Better than fine. Life is good. Dull but that’s good. I have some writing and teaching gigs that I enjoy, family to love, and everything I need close by. But still, I wanted something to perk me up yesterday.
So I went to a fashion jewelry sale. I love to accessorize with dangly earrings and fun necklaces, so I was in accessory heaven. I fondled at least a hundred different necklaces and held dozens of pairs of earrings next to my face to see how they looked in the mirror. After more than an hour of perusing, I narrowed down my selection to a few things that would enhance my wardrobe, although I'm not averse to finding clothes to go with my jewelry. But that's a blog for a different day.
I chose pieces that would accent some of my Carolyn Strauss and Antthony fashions.
