dressing for a heatwave, a date, and leftovers
posted by soe 2:31 am

Three beautiful things from the first week of September:

1. I bought a seersucker dress back in the spring before the weather was warm enough to justify it, put it in my closet, and then never thought about it again until I was contemplating what to wear during our latest heat wave. Since I’ve been feeling mopey about wanting to buy new clothes lately (why is it that several decades out of school, I still think I need a new outfit come September?), cutting the price tag off the dress felt especially good. (Plus, a coworker complimented me on it!)

2. I swallowed back the fear of rejection and asked someone I only know slightly to a movie based on a book we’ve both read. It doesn’t come out for another six weeks, but she said yes!

3. Last night after their ride, Rudi’s bike group went out for pizza on their club’s dime. When they were divvying up leftovers, they asked if he’d like to take a few slices home to me. They made for a delicious supper.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world lately?
