April and May

April and May have been wonderful and mostly sunny.  Here I wore a short skirt and a long cardigan.  Everything is super old.  

My favorite dress, currently still for sale at Target.  I am wearing it backwards.  The wind was whipping the dress when the pic was taken, so I have a weird dress outgrowth on my left knee.  Cardigan is from Old Navy.

My very close friend Leah visited us in April - it was so much fun.  This pic was taken at Carkeek Park.  Shirt and cardigan from Target, Torrid jeans, scarf unknown.

And one of Waffles - I love the diffuse light from sheer curtains.  This is our bedroom.  She is adorable, as always, and loves the house and yard so much that she seems much younger than her 8 years lately!

I hope you are all having a wonderful spring.  Blogging has been light but things are good!  I'm hoping to get back into the swing of blogging and, more importantly, commenting on your wonderful blogs.  I'm still reading though!

Backyard clothes-drying, and an ootd

Hello lovelies - I hope you've been enjoying the spring so far! It's been shockingly gorgeous here in Seattle.

So much so, that I decided to dry some clothes outdoors :)

That tree is a super old lilac bush-turned-tree. We have two of them, they smell lovely!

Lest you think it's all classy "dresses drying in trees", here's how I'm drying our jeans:

That's right, a camp chair and a tv table. Because this blog is not about a carefully curated life, nosirree :)

We mowed the lawn on Sunday - I did the whole backyard all by myself! I've never used a lawn mower before. I was so proud - I even started it by myself.
(hello you sexy beast of a lawn mower)
Waffles is really digging the yard too (not literally, thank goodness) I've also been wearing clothing lately, so here's a very belated ootd:
I think the back yard is going to be a great place to take outfit pictures! Outfit details:
Dress: Asos curve (now on clearance)
Cardigan: target, years back
sweater clip: gift from Bob's family
old lady boat shoes: fred meyer

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!
