My area hasn't been hit too hard by Sandy yet (comparatively speaking), but I'm monitoring the weather channel website for updates. Much of Hubby's family and my niece are further east, as are some of our friends... We have heard from many people that they are OK. I'm hoping Shybiker checks in online at some point, just so we know she's alright!
I didn't get all fancy at work today. I had cleared my calendar because I expected to be staffing a Red Cross shelter last night. But it must not have been necessary, because they didn't open one after all. So I took the rare opportunity to wear jeans to the office. Trouser jeans... not my mom jeans. There is only so far I will go:
I figured I should save my court clothes, just in case doing laundry becomes a problem. When I mentioned that I was wearing jeans to the secretaries, they didn't believe me until they got a closer look at the fabric. So I suppose they would "pass" in a pinch. Good to know!
Here's an older pic for a better look at the colors:
The jeans in that pic are my mom jeans... ugh!
Mrs. Spendy came out to play again today, as I was harmlessly dropping off some clothes at the dry cleaners. There was a rack of the "left behind" things for sale... so I took a look. then bought a couple things, which you will see later!
Didn't wear anything new today. I am surprised at how much use I get out of this cheapo plastic necklace that I got on clearance awhile back:
My lunar globes weren't so cheap, though. I always liked the "moon and tides" feeling I get from this pairing... but maybe not the best choice of imagery in the middle of a massive hurricane?
Let me see... I took my shower at night again, just in case. So another ponytail today with a hair flower. This pic is so old that it doesn't even have my usual border on it:
I knew it was going to rain like crazy... so I picked my trusty black shoes with a bit of a platform... to help me keep nice and dry:
I was asked if I would be willing to deploy to White Plains, NY with the Red Cross for at least 2 weeks. Willing? Yes. Able? Not so much. We have a small office, I have a large caseload. I had to say no... so why do I feel guilty?

FYI: I was doing this entire blog from my Android phone, snatching moments out of my busy life for quick photos. But I hate auto-correct with a purple passion, so now I'm using the computer for most of the work. I am still using my phone for the photos, though. My photo sizes may be erratic, and the quality isn't stellar. I am not a professional blogger, and do not have time for lots of scenic poses with a great camera. I don't even own a great camera! However, I DO appreciate your continued feedback, even in the absence of photographic artistry.
DJ/Radio Producer-turned-Lawyer attempts to dress like a grown-up. Sometimes I comically fail. And I occasionally post fun stuff, like music videos, book-club reviews, or photos of beauty or oddity.
