Whew! What a week! I'm looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning, even if that means 6:00 a.m. instead of 5:43. The academic semester has a predictable cycle to it, and right now we're in the "am I ever going to catch up on grading" part of the cycle for professors and the "crap! There's not much time left to get my grade higher" part of the cycle for students. I'm getting lots of requests for extra credit, which I'm not inclined to entertain. Show up and do the work the first time around. Did I mention that bitterness sometimes creeps in at that point in the cycle? Just a touch!
Week 4 of Project 333 ended yesterday, and here are my outfits. Christina asked me via Flickr if I was starting to get bored by my clothes. There are a few items I'd like to have back in the wardrobe--a shot of red would be cheerful about now--but for the most part, I'm still enjoying living out of my pared-down closet. I finally replaced the ill-fitting gray turtleneck with a nice cozy one from L.L. Bean. Languishing gift cards from last Christmas meant that the sweater didn't cost me a dime! You can see all of my outfits for Project 333 here.
It's pretty chilly and gray today, so I rounded out the mosaic with a picture to remind me of the heat of July. Ahhh, yes!
I'm fortunate to live less than 30 minutes from Hartford, CT, which is the location for Stitches East again this year. I am pretty shopped out, but I've been keeping my eyes on the Signature Needles circulars. A pair might come home with me this weekend.
How about you? What are your weekend plans? Are you dressing up for Halloween?
