On a Bicycle for Two

Today I was relatively crafty. I made two feather fascinator clips and a little owl bow (the owls actually kind of look like totoros!)! I'll be selling them on etsy by the end of the month, so if you want one, you won't have to wait very long.
I went to work again today and so I didn't feel like wearing anything too spectacular. Thank God "training" is over so I can work alone. I like working alone so I can be a neat freak. I got a $27.00 paycheck today. Wooo. One day of pay! Kind of like instant gratification!

So I've noticed something recently and I wondered if anyone else does it. I started noticing that I don't like getting dressed in front of a mirror. For some reason I like to put on a whole outfit and then look at it, not as it's in progress. Perhaps this has something to do with my purist sensibilities when it comes to things like peeking at presents before they are given, or opening a bag of candies during the previews at a theater. I feel like if I watch myself put on different things, I start doubting the success of what I'm wearing. If I just put it all on and then look, I can assess it more objectively. I don't know. I think I am a very strange human being, but I rather like being me. Do you guys do this?

I don't remember where I found this photo, but it is so beautiful and ethereal.

I am watching
An Officer and a Gentleman, which I probably shouldn't be doing. I make a point of not watching romantic movies, it just makes life a lot easier. This one is so good, though, I couldn't pass it up when I scrolled past. It's a classic.

I found this little book that we've had for years and years, it's called Life's Little Instruction Book. I think I'm gonna share five of these every once in a while...

1. Compliment three people every day.

2. Have a dog. (I like this one!!)

3. Watch a sunrise at least once a year.

4. Overtip breakfast waitresses.

5. Remember other people's birthdays.

Sorry if I haven't got back to you all who've commented! My brain is kind of scattered and I'm trying to get back into a routine here. I will do my best to get back to y'all!
