Blue dress has been usurped by purple dress. Purple dress fits better, and is frankly more flattering. It is nonetheless, still borrowed.
What’s with all the wardrobe woes? For someone who delays clothing shopping as long as humanly possible, this is an awful lot of mental cycle expenditure. What you are going to wear is important sometimes. Sometimes, like when you are performing wedding ceremonies. Read more
The free seems to be flowing in my blog o’sphere lately. Lots of talk of sugary drinks, coupons, etc,. As it is still the month of my birth, I’ve cashed in on a couple Corporate Dining perks, enjoying both a shortbread cookie and burger this week at no cost to me. Also good reminders to keep up with my running. My best freebies go beyond that though.

I will also be capitolizing on my rural location to do a little shopping. Hitting up the small town Farmer’s Market, where prices are cheaper. Shopping the un-trendy Farm Supply Stores (as opposed to the trendy ones here) in hopes of finding a better price on a pickling crock and perhaps electric fencing for Chicken paddocks.
