We are having an unseasonably cool August.  As a result, I have been bundling up more than normal.  While I am not impressed at what appears to be an early fall, I know the dogs are loving the cooler temperatures…  I suppose that can be the silver lining…

Unfortunately, since is has also rained on-and-off every day this week, I was unable to watch the Perseid meteor showers (clouds blocking the view).¬† This is normally one of my favorite summer rituals –¬† I can spend hours watching the night sky.¬† It really grounds me – makes me realize how we are part of something so much larger.¬†

I am slowly trying to fill gaps in my closet – for example, I finally purchased a plain white button-down shirt last week {this one}.¬† These flats were bought in March as part of the same initiative.¬† A beige shoe is a nice neutral that can be paired with almost anything ūüôā

Sorry for the lack of recent updates Рwe are in the middle of an unseasonably low cold-snap & I have been trying to avoid going outside whenever possible.  Normally the average for this time of year is about -5C.  At that temperature I can still be outside with the dogs Рtake them running or snowshoeing.  However, with our recent temperatures in the -20’s, they want to be outside even less than I do.
