So, how are you? Ready for the weekend?
I always find the second week back to school the hardest, as the routine is not set yet nobody has that first-week nervous energy to rocket them out of bed anymore.
To compensate, I binge-watched season one of Greenleaf and am waiting for the next season to be on Netflix Canada. Love Lynn Whitfield as Lady Mae. Her character is fabulous.
I’ve always loved big family dramas with terrific houses and clothes. My tastes are firmly-rooted in the 1980s, I suppose, and Greenleaf fills that bill. I also love how each character wrestles with his or her faith. The hardest part of believing in God’s goodness is the fallibility of His followers and, oh, do these people set trials for one another. I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
I’ve been cleaning out the kitchen cupboards at home. I have no idea why I felt the need to stockpile chicken broth like that. I’ve put the things I need to use up at the front so I remember them the next time I think I have no food in the house.
I’ve also been rearranging my closet to bring forward the fall-ier pieces. I decided to add the Ruffle-neck Silk Top in Black from J. Crew during their stock-up sale. With that neckline, it could be exquisite or clownish. We will see if it’s a keeper when it arrives.
In general, this fall I plan to take a nod from Dr. Paula Agard on Suits with lots of simple neutrals.
