She knows I’m going somewhere, so she has to be nearby…
3×1 cropped jeans (several years old)
Everlane cashmere turtleneck (old style)
Patagonia nano-puff jacket
Transcience Swing Bag (gift from the designer)
Vince Warren platform sneakers (quite a few colors on sale!)
I’m wearing my old, stretchy jeans lately because they fit me, and hold me in. I wore my 100% cotton jeans, but they are literally falling off of me right now, like I can take them off without unbuttoning or unzipping falling off, and that’s not comfortable. Having my clothes be too big is really disconcerting to me. I don’t know how to explain it, besides I don’t feel strong, or sturdy. My sister told me when she was here right after my accident that she thought I looked fragile. Maybe that’s what I feel. Fragile.
I got my Elizabeth Suzann Clyde culottes and right now, I think the size 8 short fits. They’re actually maybe a little short? But not really, and if I do decide to keep them, I believe I can get the hem taken out a half inch, or even a quarter inch, since there’s room there. I haven’t worn them yet, because it’s FREEZING here, as it is all over the country, and I don’t like to wear socks, or boots, so…
Not buying anything, hardly wearing anything. Not really going anywhere. Sort of in a funk, to be honest. We haven’t seen the sun for days and that always makes me feel sad. Family so far away does it too. Also…not being able to eat solid food LOL.
I finally got around to reading Just Kids by Patti Smith (the kindle edition is $1.99 now!) and I love it so much. I’ve never really been a Patti Smith fan, but since I discovered Robert Maplethorpe in the 90’s, I have always been interested in his life and work, so this was fascinating. I also came out of it really liking Patti Smith – not her music, necessarily, but as a person. I respected her ability to stay relatively grounded even in the chaos of the Chelsea Hotel, the rock world, and all the uncertainty in her life. And their love for each other is inspiring.
Now, I’m reading random fiction and I’m not really interested in any of it. Maybe I just need to stick to non-fiction for a while? Any biography/memoir suggestions?
We went to see Star Wars yesterday and I really liked it. Going to watch Wonder Woman this weekend 🙂 It was $2.99 to rent on Amazon today.
Nothing much. I’ve been working on repotting a lot of my plants that need it, which I’m glad to be getting done. This always involves one or two trips to the nursery though, and it’s taking all I have in me to resist buying MORE plants. I have so much room and so much light now that I can have ALL THE PLANTS, but I need to pace myself. Anyway, right now I have more plants than pots, so I need to get more pots (I like the white ones from Ikea), but I will inevitably end up with more pots than I need now, and will have to get plants to fill them. See what I did there? 🙂
I’ve been back on the Peloton a few times a week, not trying to burn too many calories, just trying to get some physical activity. I feel really good, physically, but I know I’m not getting enough calories to exert myself too much. I miss Pure Barre like crazy though, but am waiting at least until I get the elastics off before I go back. It’s still weird to be out in public like this, especially when I really have to interact with people. It’s hard not to smile!
I really dislike New Year’s Eve in general (too many bad ones), so just waiting for January 1 so things can get somewhat back to normal.
Sorry to be a debbie downer today! I’m not really very down, just feeling the weight of things today. You know?
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! And see you again next year .
