a la daily prompt…

My foxing and I took a long walk in the rain last night. Surrounded by inky darkness, the street lamps threw orbs of yellow back and forth across our path like a breadcrumb-trail of beacons. The air was warm enough to generate fog, which sat high in the treetops; a canopy to keep us safe and sound. Muted by the weather, our voices echoed across the yards and cars, bouncing off snowbanks and our polka-dot umbrellas. It felt as if we were the only creatures on earth, so deep was the quiet. The squish of our sneakers padding thru puddles threw water up onto our calves, drenching our jeans, which created a bubble of laughter from my foxing. I am in love with the fact that she still wants to spend these moments with me. =)

This morning, the rain continues, and I am beyond happy that we are not getting more snow today. My joy is short lived, however, as the forecast is predicting flurries again this weekend. I cannot impress upon you my absolute NEED for spring to make her appearance… sooner would be better than later, Mother Nature. Just sayin’…

I have been browsing the Daily Prompts, and loved the most recent post from LDG, about fashion. The question was

“What fashion do I like, or think is stylish?”

Clothes shopping rates up there with dental work in my opinion. I used to find a few very nicely cut shirts or shorts, then buy them in shades of blue, black, tan and white so I could throw on anything at a moments notice and still look good. Of course, when you are young and super skinny with full hips, anything makes you look good. =) I never had much passion for fashion, preferred to spend my money traveling and adventuring. As I get older, and am beginning to lose more weight, I have been thinking of what I would like to buy to complement my body type. I am tired of looking  my age, and would prefer to look appealing and pretty, without much fuss. While I would never copy her, I have found someone whose style I just adore.

Robin Wright is just so elegant, in an understated way… she reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. Of course, no one is Audrey, but Robin has a way of dressing simply with an effortless grace that accentuates her fantastic, classic beauty. She has aged slowly, and while looking fabulous, she still looks mature… no Botox for her. =) Check out her character in HOUSE OF CARDS… the way she dresses is just unbelievable. Powerful, sleek lines, menswear-inspired shirts and pants. Smooth, clean, super sexy, very feminine … =) Her super-short haircut complements her wardrobe perfectly, and is dyed a multi-faceted blonde, which lightens your complexion and looks youthful. She is one of those women who is so beautiful, she could not look bad in anything. But her fashion choices accentuate her strengths and she looks perfect, at all times. She really captures classic, timeless beauty as a woman of a certain age. We should all be so lucky. =)

The other prompt question from around the web that caught my eye was

“What is in your fridge right now ?”

Since Saturdays are my time at the grocers, I do not have much in there at the moment. A half-dozen organic, cage-free eggs with Omega-3’s… A clamshell of fresh, organic spinach and one of baby lettuce… half a large container of Fage yogurt, one apple, an onion, a tomato, an eggplant, some mushrooms and two carrots. 1/2 gallon milk, a quart of half and half and a couple of pickles. Finally, some hot Abruzzese sausage and cheese for my foxing and The Professor to enjoy tonight with a baguette.

And that’s all she wrote, folks. Have a lovely weekend, will be back soon… =)
