These thoughts were in mind when Maya and I each created our impromptu circus. Check in with her today to learn about hula hoops and training wild animals to jump through a ring of fire!
When it comes to clothes, there are only a few items in which I’m really comfortable…
There’s a “Summer Challenge” out in the blogosphere that dares the reader to wear only 10 items of clothing for the 91 days of summer. Is that a challenge, I wonder? Mmmmh. Isn’t that what most people would do if they didn’t have to dress up for work? If you have a husband you already know that. Don’t all wardrobes house “the comfortable”, “the beautiful” and “the forgotten”?
All my fancy clothes which are beautiful, but restrictive, enjoy a good retirement in my closet. Every once in a while a vintage dress made of mystery fiber ends up in my wardrobe, because I get inspired by the look, the colors or the inspiration it creates. I imagine wearing it to a party, looking glamorous and having a sophisticated evening with pleasant conversation and soft music. In reality, here in the countryside with cows as the main spectators, the only time I ever wear these dresses are the 5 minutes right before I go to bed when I try them on to see, if they “still fit”. Then I get “the look” from my daughter, and I meekly return them to their retirement home secure in the knowledge that tomorrow, I’ll still wear one of my favorite things; likely something comfortable, probably made from recycled t-shirts.
