Today I had one of those mornings. I have a Company lunch at a nice Italian restaurant today. I’m looking forward to it very much, and already know what I’m ordering! I plan on ordering linguine with marinara sauce and large prawns. Since a holiday back in 2004-ish I always order prawns/shrimp with my pasta.
I knew I had to dress up a little more this morning, but for the life of me couldn’t get it together. I was looking at my wardrobe full of skirts and dresses, and felt confused. It took longer to get ready, longer to get my food together for the day and longer to brush my hair… yes, it was one of those days. I ended up being 5 minutes late for work. My brain was asleep. I never drink caffeinated coffee in the morning (I figure if I need caffeine to wake up each morning, there is a problem. But this morning I relented and slowly poured a strong coffee without any guilt.
Once the coffee was downed I looked at my odd ensemble for the day. My outfit doesn’t quite make sense. Its ok. But odd. My tights don’t quite match the skirt I’m wearing. The proportions of my outfit are a little off. I’m ok with that though. There are far more important things in this world that don’t quite make sense.
Yesterday we had a storm in California. It was so nice to have rain, although I wasn't prepared for it. At lunch I took a walk in the rain with my weak umbrella. Thankfully my umbrella didn't pop inside out!
I was hoping it would rain tomorrow (my day off!), but there are blue skies again. Still, its nice and chilly. I plan on cleaning, reading my book and starting a mosaic on a terracotta pot.
