Thank you, all, so much for your sweet comments from my last post. There's still a bit of work to be done (by professionals, not us!) in the basement today, but after that we should all be good to go. As we drove to get groceries last night, my husband and I passed through a few neighborhoods where you could tell people also got flooded. I am just glad that we're all safe and that we managed to save some stuff.
I haven't been feeling very enthusiastic about dressing up since the weekend, but my newly-acquired floral jacket keeps on begging to be worn. It's still pinned at the back, but I wear it out anyway. It's relentless, and I'm powerless against it. Don't be surprised if you see this jacket in a bunch of posts soon. (Kidding!)
