My sister is having a yard sale on Saturday. She told me that I could join her. I have 3 boxes of clothes plus 2 bags of books. I hope that I can get rid of everything. I also hope that it is not too cold. I plan on wearing sweats and a barn jacket.
I never sing along with the radio in the car, but tonight I couldn't resist. I was listening to the 70's on Sirius 7. They played "I Think I Love You" by the Partridge Family. I couldn't help sing along. I always liked The Partridge Family when I was young. I never missed an episode.
I hope everyone has a good Friday.

Queenie is on vacation this week. That means I get to do everything all by myself. It has been mainly sink or swim, but so far I'm doing okay. At least it is quiet. I think I am going to take my IPOD and docking station so that I can listen to music. Our local public radio station no longer plays classical music. It is just NPR talk radio now.
I hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

I got a lot of stuff done while in Huntsville. After the dentist, I went to The Fresh Market, Publix, Belk's, Talbot's, Sam's, The Pink Pelican, and McAlister's Deli. I was back at my mother's house by 12:45.
Today, I wore my LL Bean khakis, Talbot's long sleeved white tee, Talbot's hot pink cable knit cardigan, RL socks with hot pink polo man, leather Tretorns, pearls, and gold shell earrings.
I left my SUV at the Chevrolet dealer to have the signals repaired. They light up, but they don't blink. They had to order a part that was to be in by 3:15. Hopefully, it will be repaired soon. I want to leave to go back home by 4:30 0r 5:00, and it is 3:45 now.
I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their day. Have a great Tuesday, also.

I drove up to my mother's house last night (in the rain), but she's not here. She's in Cape Cod. I talked to her, and she is having a fun time. She has been planning this trip for months. I was going to wash a bedspread and comforter today and hang them on the clothesline, but I'm not sure about the weather. Maybe tomorrow. Don't you just love to hang your bed linens on the clothesline to dry? They smell so fresh and crisp.
I didn't realize until this morning that I haven't written a post since Wednesday. I know everyone is waiting anxiously as to what preppy attire I have worn. Thursday, I wore a Susan Bristol black/white mini houndstooth skirt, a Talbot's cotton mock sweater, silver monogrammed pendant, silver/black earrings, and Talbot's Mary Jane style flats. You know that skirt is several years old. Do they even make Susan Bristol anymore? Years ago, I used to love almost everything that Susan Bristol made. It sort of reminds me of Eagle's Eye. Friday, I wore my trusty LL Bean khakis and a Talbot's navy with white polka dot 3/4 sleeve sweater, pearls and gold shell earrings. This morning, I still have on my pj's. I'll decide what to wear when I decide what I'm going to do.
I'm sort of bored. I think I'll call my sister and see what she and her foster son are going to do today. I hate to get him out in the weather, but she probably needs an outing. She's been tied down to him for about a month now. She mentioned that Stein-Mart was having a sale. Maybe the three of us can go to Huntsville later. Maybe my brother-in-law and their other foster son wants to go and we can make it a family outing. I may call her right now.
I hope everyone has a great weekend.

I think this is the first picture of me that I have ever posted. I am wearing LL Bean chino capris, LL Bean red tee, Vineyard Vines hoodie and Tretorns with red gullwings. I think this picture was taken near Cape Elizabeth, Maine.
There's a lot of preppy going on here. LL Bean, Vineyard Vines, Tretorns, Maine, lighthouses...it's all preppy to me.
I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

Today, I continued with the preppy challenge. I wore a Talbot's navy corduroy jumper, an LL Bean light blue mock, silver monogrammed jewelry, light blue bead earrings, and Ferragamo navy wingtip oxfords.

I've finally got to the point in my new job where I am busy. It feels good to be busy. I like to be productive. I got a letter from my "team leader" stating that my new title was Sales Assistant. I was not happy with that. Over the weekend, I happen to remember that my boss told me that my job description was identical to a recent posting for an Executive Assistant. I emailed the "team leader" and explained to what was said. I requested that my title stay the same. I hope she doesn't think that I acted inappropriately. My ego is on the line. It's disheartening to have been demoted. At least, I'm able to keep my salary.
I hope everyone has a good Tuesday.

Saturday, my mother and I went to Huntsville shopping. I have been waiting for months for the Lilly Jubilee bermuda bags to go on sale at Belks. They are still full price. I guess it is not meant for me to have them. I went to Dillard's to check on some Austin Reed separates, but could not find them. Again, not meant to be.
Today, I helped my mother pack for her trip to the Cape. She is going with her friends, and they are all excited. I know that they will have fun.
FYI - I called the lady that wanted to room with my mother and I. I got her answering machine. I left her a message letting her know that I hate to tell her no, but my mother was hoping that this would be some kind of mother/daughter weekend, and that I hope she understood. I felt bad, but I didn't think it would be a comfortable situation for any of us. Thanks for all of your advice.
I hope everyone had a good weekend, and I hope everyone has a good Monday.

Tickled Pink & Green posted about Laura Ashley today. It got me to thinking about a LA black watch plaid jumper that is hanging in my closet. I may wash it and wear it one day next week with a yellow turtleneck. What color is appropriate to wear with black watch plaid, navy or black? I've seen and wore both.
I have a predicament that I need advice on. I am a member of a local ladies club. We have a national conference in a few weeks in a city that is about 6 hours away. I am taking my mother along as my guest. A member of our club asked me if I had a roommate. I told her I was sorry but my mother was going with me. She then asked if she could room with us and use a roll away bed. It sort of blind sided me. I didn't know what to say. I told her that I would have to check with my mother, and she said, "Okay, let me know what she says." This woman is very nice, but she can get on my nerves sometimes. She travels like she's going on Cleopatra's Barge. Plus, I'm the national president this year, so I have a lot of stuff also. I really don't know what to say. If I told her that my mother didn't think it was a good idea, it would make my mother look like the bad person. I can't use the excuse that my mother doesn't know her, because she has met my mother. I really don't know what to do. I don't want to hurt her feelings. Any advice?
I hope everyone has a good Friday.
