Graype Soda

Here I smile, though I feel yucky, so forgive the no make-up/hair up in a bun look,
I promise this will not be a re-occuring theme.

This is me without makeup. Which is big for me- (I divulge I am a notorious glam camper- I can't leave home without it.) Spent the whole day in my pj's today. But I felt a bit better after throwing some clothes on to run a little errand. It gave me a great opportunity to debut my newly dyed purple top. This little guy was originally white, with white eyelet trim at the neck, and I absolutely loved it. That is until I noticed the little unsightly little yellow stain in front, how long and how it got there beats me. I'd tried several of my faithful over the counter spot removers with no luck, so it's been banished to the get rid of it pile- until now. One of my roomates- (and when I refer to roomates I mean inlaws and sister in law because my husband and I are in process of building our home right now and this allows us to save and build- we are so lucky to have them). So yes... my roomate was dying a costume for her school dance performance and at last minute we ran around  the house looking for other things to try dying. No need to waste a batch of perfectly good dye, right? Suprisingly, the shirt came out better than I expected, and due to the different materials it absorbed different amounts of the dye.

With all of the beautiful spring-like weather we've been having these past few weeks, I forgot that it's still tecnically winter. Last nights storm dropped a few inches of fluff in the higher elevations, so they cancelled school for all the kids. I planned to make a quick trip to the grocery store to pick up soup, lozenges, tea and juice before the next storm hits. Who know's what tomorrow will look like...
