And just like that, it’s back to work! Tomorrow I spend eight hours in training, and then Tuesday it’s back to my classroom. I actually went to my classroom on Friday, and guess what smell greeted me as I walked through the backdoor? SKUNK. Ugh. It was wafting through the heater vent and it made me want to gag. I found a janitor and he said he saw a skunk walk by my classroom that morning. We checked my room. No skunk. He checked the room next door. No skunk. He checked the heater/boiler near my room. No skunk! So, I’m hoping ol’ Pepe Le Pew just decided to spray and kept it moving. Can you imagine if I got to my classroom on Tuesday and there was a skunk in there?!
One thing that I continue to play around with while getting dressed is textures and layers. To be quite honest with you, I used to be very matchy-matchy. I remember an instance when I was in middle school where my shoes HAD to match my top. If I wore a yellow top, I wore yellow shoes (TRAGIC). I’ve slowly grown out of that phase, but every now and then I have a scenario like this morning: “Hmmm. The stripes on this blazer are navy. I need a navy skirt. Oh. But I don’t have navy shoes. Well, I can’t wear this today.” Since the stripes in my blazer are very dark and my textured wool skirt is a mixture of white and black threads, I decided to wear the skirt anyway. I’m thinking of wearing this outfit to my meeting tomorrow with flats.
Last year around this time I was living in my hometown and sweating like a pig. You know, the normal summer routine. I just checked the weather for Delano today and the temperature is forecasted to be 106 degrees. I used to complain about the heat during the summer until I traveled to Chicago, Louisiana, and a few other places and felt the heat and humidity. NO. THANK. YOU. I’ll take hot dry heat over humidity any day.
I said all of that to say THIS: I now live in the San Francisco Bay Area annnnnnd I am able to get away with wearing a long sleeved top in the summer. It’s crazy!
While I was taking these pictures today I noticed that I’m going to have to replant the succulents from our wedding. Look how they’ve grown!
If you have any other inexpensive vacation/staycation ideas I’d love to hear them.

My bright mango-colored dress is totally saying “Spring”. Unfortunately, here in Florida, Winter lasts a week, Spring lasts a weekend, and Summer is already in full swing by now. Even long flowy dresses feel like a winter coat and boots in this mid-80 degree weather. I suppose every season wherever you are has its quirks.
How are you enjoying Spring in your state?
