fun Christmas earrings, Claire's
This outfit has been sitting on my camera card for weeks, as evidenced by the silver Christmas ornament earrings. I actually bought this dress before the school year started, but it's gone unworn until recently due to the hot weather. I appreciate that the modest neckline and length make it work-appropriate, while the ruching adds some interest and figure flattery.
Last week was my first week back with my students after winter break, and I had to call in sick two days due to laryngitis. I'm also out today, but my doctor has kindly squeezed me in for a quick visit.
All grumbling aside, I'm thankful for many things, such as entertaining books (I blasted through "Shadow of a Bull" and "Running with Scissors" on my sick days), my ever-helpful colleagues, and hand-written notes in the mail. The latter amused the husband to no end -- he doesn't quite understand that an e-mail does not possess the same charm as a personal note.
What are you thankful for today?
