Yesterday and today have been fairly busy. I have been having to play hostess to some people that are using our auditorium for a class. Friday can't get here quick enough. Tomorrow, I have to play hostess for a meeting that my boss is having. I don't mind his. Tomorrow night, our entire department plus a couple of others have been invited to my boss's house for a casual dinner. This takes the place of our Christmas dinner that we didn't have, because the holidays snuck up on us. My boss's wife is a wonderful cook. She likes to cook "fancy" food. She said that she may just grill hamburgers, but I'm sure she will somehow make them "fancy". My boss has such a sweet family. Can't wait to visit with them.

What did I wear today? Let's see. I wore a navy wool skirt, a light blue Brooks Brother's merino wool twin set, Talbot's 15 inch faux pearl choker, and Talbot's large faux pearl earrings. Tomorrow, I am going to wear a black wool skirt, Talbot's black watch plaid blouse, pearls and pearl earrings. Since it is going to be chilly, I'm going to wear my Geiger black boiled wool jacket in lieu of a coat.

It will be foolish for me to go home between work and dinner. By the time I get home, it will be time for me to turn around and go back. I think I might go to Gus Mayer and try on shoes. I've been eyeing a pair of Tory Burch Revas. I haven't bought any shoes since I broke my foot. I did buy some Tretorns, but they don't count.

On a sad note, my dear sweet father passed away five years ago today. I miss him so much. I have such wonderful memories of him. I need to cheer up.

I hope everyone has a great Thursday.

Time helps, but I know that it doesn't completely heal the loss. I'm so glad that you have good memories to help you.

I love sweater sets. And good for you, keeping the memory of your father alive.

You are sounding oh-so-stylish in the outfits, and the accessories! It would be fun were you able to actually do a new pair of shoes, it has been a long time since the surgery!

I send you hugs on the anniversary of losing your father, I know too well how that feels.
