Our carbon monoxide alarm went off at 4 am on Monday morning.  This was the first time the alarm had gone off (we’ve had the CO units for about 2 years), and our digital readout was showing ~250 ppm (bad!).  Fortunately, the alarm did it’s job & we quickly left the house (although not before opening most of the doors and windows – which, in retrospect, we shouldn’t have spent time doing).  The local fire department came to investigate & a few hours later we were allowed back inside.  Our wood stove was the likely source of the carbon monoxide & we have negative house pressure issues that are not helping the situation.  An HVAC tech is coming by today to look at the problems & hopefully propose a solution.  Even though this ended well for us, I can’t stress the importance of a CO alarm.   If we did not have a functioning alarm, we all would have continued to sleep through the rising CO levels (very dangerous!).

 

Another snowy day

I bought this skirt during a brave moment a few weeks back, and I am surprised how much I actually like it.  It’s a little outside my comfort zone, but also surprisingly wearable.

Another casual running-errands look.  Despite looking light purple, this shirt is actually has blue and red narrow stripes.  Which was surprising when I opened my Club Monaco order (it photographed light purple on the CM website too – so I was expecting to receive a light purple shirt!).

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope everyone is having a great long weekend!  I was fortunate enough to have all three days off & so far I have spent most of my time working around the house or on the blog.  I am definitely a home-body, and nothing makes me happier than spending days outside with the dogs and working on my gardens.  I know this isn’t everyone’s idea of a great long weekend, but for me, it’s an absolutely perfect!

There’s a big blog change in the works.  I have decided to move over to a WordPress platform, and will be re-naming the blog A Closet Full of Clothes (if you’re reading this, you are already on the new site!).  Until everything is fully migrated, I will be posting at both A Closet Full of Clothes AND Laura Wears…, but eventually (probably by the end of September) I will start using the Laura Wears… Tumblr account to share single photos, as opposed to full posts (kind of like a more conventional Tumblr).

Since an outfit post is long-overdue, I took a few quick photos last night in our backyard.  Georgie decided to join in on the fun too 🙂
