A Fur Coat for the Winter

post signatureBonjour! It's been a while since I've browsed the Blogosphere, and sadly it will be even longer once school starts. This semester I will *finally* find out if I have made it into the College of Education, and from there everything will be all set (hopefully). It will be my 4th time getting into a college, because I transferred from high school into General Studies (because I didn't know what I wanted to do), then from General Studies into the School of Art and Design, and from there back into General Studies (because I realized I wanted to teach a wider range of subjects, rather than just art), and hopefully from General Studies into Education. It's been a crazy ride so far, but hopefully it will smooth out in a few months.

I thought I would share a doggy outfit in the meantime, just as something a little different and because this dog is just too cute. She is a Bichon Frise- Poodle mix, is hypoallergenic, loves anybody and everybody, and is just a sweet little furball. And she wears clothes like no other dog I know :). Sometimes her haircut doesn't allow her to take very good pictures, but right now it is just right.

Now if only she would leave the earmuffs on long enough to go for a walk!

Cape Carnation


That was quite a storm that went through here! Fortunately the house is still standing, and just as soon as the temps are decent, there's going to be some major snowman-building going on. It's just a tradition. :)

I found this cape (most people call it a poncho, but it's called a cape. I have to kick myself not to correct them :)) in a mail-order catalogue last Christmas. It is double-sided and has a huge hood and is just so fabulously pink that I couldn't resist it. I've even had a male TA ask what it was and where I got something like that. Then he questioned me when I said I got it from a mail-order catalogue, and pretty soon the history discussion class began discussing the history of mail-order catalogues... Unfortunately, it is not overly warm and does not wear well with a backpack, as there are no sleeves. But all in all, it's my favorite coat substitute.

Anyway, I am in the process of beating the beans out of my little sister on Wii Monkeyball. Until next time!

Baby, It's Cold Out There


Just when you thought warmth was in the air... BAM! Polar cold front hits, leaving nothing but negative temperatures and Mr. Freeze landscapes in the forecast.

I think I better start looking for those magic heat packs... you never know when your house will become your freezer.

Stay warm and safe!
