Outfit || May Showers

  
   April showers bring May flowers, right? Well, this May has had its flowers and showers so far. After a sunny week, the Lord decided to give us a bit more rain. I don't know why, but I do know that it called for another impromptu umbrella photo shoot! :)




  A unique piece, this asymmetrical red skirt is something Mom found at a consignment store, and told me about after coming home. As you can see, I went to that store and ended up buying it! Today I paired it with a long-sleeved gray tee, an item that I wear often but haven't featured yet. Long gray socks and knee-high boots kept me warm and safe from the puddles I splashed through on my way to and from the office.

   How have you been these days, readers? I have been sick (part of the reasons for last week's break from posting) for the past week with an appetite-killing, runny-nosed respiratory bug that won't seem to go away. After taking a couple of days off last week, I was a bit behind on my work, but am tackling it day by day. This evening after getting off I had my first experience with my car battery dying as a result of forgetting to turn off my lights - oops! Thankfully, one of the salesmen was kind enough to help me get it started back up. In spite of the not-so-nice things in the past week, there have been pleasant things to enjoy, such as ice-cream, movies, and dachshund cuddles! :)

Have you been staying well lately?
Have you ever left your headlights on all day?
What have been some highlights of your past week?

“So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord.
His going forth is as certain as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the rain,
Like the spring rain watering the earth.”
Hosea 6:3

  1. Hello lovely friend...so very good to stop by...it has been much too long! {{smiles}} This was such a sweet photoshoot...love the umbrella! Do send some of that gorgeous rain this way - our water is drying up so quickly! Ah yes...we have often left our headlights on and had to plead with some kind person to help us start the car up! Aww...sorry to hear you have been ill - must be the change of seasons, I am down with a cold too! Sniff!
    Love and hugs to you today, Paige...

  6. My Chevy truck has auto lights so I never have to even think about it. Glad to hear you're feeling better. You're pics reminded me of this past rainy Saturday when I changed some zoo plans to go to the aquarium instead.
    I like that big umbrella! The outfit also looks cute on you. (red's my fav color, no wonder. :)
