I was trying to find a different location today, as I am getting tired of looking at the deck, so I pulled into the dog park! But, as my mind thought things through, I could see it all in my mind : Big, furry, tongue wagging German Shepard, running full tilt towards me and my tri-pod toppling over. As I try to grasp my camera, I get my foot hung in a hole, or worse, a pile of poop, and throw my back out in the process. Sooo.... Here I am in the parking lot. Safely popping off a few! We hike these trails a lot, and there's no worse feeling than an un-leashed angry pair of teeth heading at us. The owner ALWAYS says, "he won't bite!" Yeah, right! O.K., enough daydreaming, or day-night maring !!! ( disclaimer: I really love all animals ).
I am getting "ansy" as the library hasn't called to rave about my on-line application and I want a "real" job again. If I were going to work, I'd have this crocheted scarf and brooch over a simple black tank and long,full skirt with boots. But, since I was running errands and going to the doctor, I did a "vintage countryish" look. I bought this skirt for a song, as I can't resist a vintagey print, only to find it was sewn wrong. I pleated the hem to give it some fullness. It was a random stitch-a-thon , but bubbled pretty well. I am loving this washed denim shirt and see it as a summer staple for sure!!!
The booties are mine from several years ago.
The dogs are to my left. I got my eyes on em' ! I do love all kinds of animals, but the leash law isn't enforced on these trails very well. I usually stand really still and let the dog sniff me til the lovely owner shows up!
" Awww, He Won't Bite ! "
I managed to spill orange pop on my scarf. It came out with a little Dawn!
My sexy,come hither pose! As a blogger, I don't really get camera fright in public anymore.
Yep, the dogs looked on..............
As I am usually late to the show, I saw a few of my bestest blogger pals are into a weekly challenge. It's about dressing to accentuate your best features rather than hiding your flaws. I began to really think about it, and I do dress more to Hide Flaws, rather than the positive alternative. So, next week I plan to try this approach and see what happens! I am open to new discoveries, especially when it is a positive adventure. I know what I like to wear, and I kinda know what looks best on my frame, so we'll see!
Have a howling, running full-tilt, wonderful weekend !!!
