and adventures!

{As the world gets ready for winter}

It snowed at 04.30 this morning.
2 of my cats are sick.. one with liver issue/constipation and the other with worms/diarrhea.
It's so much work taking care of them.. but worth it.
I hope that they are okay!

{Lady in water}

Made the 45 mile journey yesterday for precious, pesticide-free produce at Whole Foods.
I witnessed a pumpkin avalanche in the produce aisle!
On the way I stopped at Elizabeth's Timeless Attire and acquired for myself a new 1940's purse and lacy white 1940's slip.
I fell in love with a dress.. a black beaded 1920's flapper dress.
However I did not have $150.

In other news..
I never thought that I would be going through a divorce.. and yet here I am.
I need to do what makes me happy (and safe).
I really just want it to be over already.. and it's not.
He hasn't even been served the papers yet because he's in jail.
Oi.. how do I even get myself roped into these situations?
