RockStars & Capri Cults

As promised, here are a couple pics from the concert. There would likely be more if it didn't take me 15 minutes per pic to load them. Stooopid dial up!!! One thing I miss about my old job is high speed internet access!

It's been hot and sunny a lot lately and I ended up having to buy MORE clothes because every pair of pants I owned were dark black or blue. I've been watching what the other ladies at work were wearing and every last one of them were sporting capris! I've hated capris ever since they became popular and swore I'd never own a pair. Well, never say never because today I joined the capri cult and wore my first pair to work. On top of the fact that they were capris, they were beige and I haven't worn beige on my bottom half, in like, ever! I topped it off with a chocolate brown sleeveless tank (another color I haven't worn forever) and I have to believe that they've brainwashed me somehow! What's happening to me? *giggle*

We've been busy at the cottage. We're still having water issues. Two weekends ago we spent $260 on a new pump/motor. This weekend it was $240 on a new pressure tank. Still not working right. It's either an air bubble in the water line that's in the lake or the electrical line isn't heavy enough for the load. I'm leaning more towards the bubble. That means we have to go out in the paddle boat and somehow get the bubble out of the pipe. If the lake bottom was sandy it wouldn't be a problem but it's what I loving refer to as loonshit. Even Holly sinks up to her belly when she walks on it and she only weighs 10 lbs. On Sunday we took the day off and went fishing. When we got back to the cottage I cut the grass and wanted a quick shower to get the grass off me. That's when we discovered that the tank hadn't solved the problem. $500 later and still not right. Needless to say, we were not happy campers.

On the bright side, we managed to get the garden planted, even though one of the neighborhood dogs came tearing through it as soon as I was done. I'm thinking I may end up with a row of mixed vegetables. *grin*

I'm so excited about Niagara now. I've been bored to tears lately and I can't wait to get away and see some people. Things are so different this summer without our friends (the ones who split up) on the other side of the lake. It's been pretty quiet at the cottage. Dusterboy doesn't mind. He's a bit of a hermit while I'm more of a social butterfly.

Work is going well. I haven't been terribly busy and it's driving me absolutelyeffingnuts to have high speed internet access at my fingertips and not be able to use it. It's taking every single ounce of willpower I have not to check up on the blogs from work. I've got about 4 1/2 more months of probation before I'll even think about chancing it. *sigh*

As always, miss you all! *smooooooches* Special hugs for my Buggybaby! Love ya Bug! I'm thinking of you!

Good to see you back. I guess you're working with some fashionable ladies. It's nice to take a chance and buy something different once in a while.

Hey there stranger!

I don't like to swim in lakes...they scare me. I would much rather swim in the ocean. Less monsters.

Have you ever posted a picture of your cottage? I would love to see it in it's summer glory!

It sounds like the job is going well and for that I am very glad!

Lightsie! Lightsie! Not capris! Nooooooooooo...

Okay. I've adjusted now. *crosses fingers* It's always good to try new things.

And lol on "loonshit." That's a perfect description of several swamp-bottomed lakes I've had the privilege of swimming in.

Welcome to the cult! *grin*

I absolutely love capris! I have about ten pairs. They are great because we're not supposed to wear shorts while teaching, but the capris are acceptable.

As to your question in my blog, I'm still up in the air about the peep meet. Money & time are the big issues. *pout*

Yep, the capris got you. I made sure that the capris I bought were more pedal pusher length (right below the knee). This year I shut my eyes and bought the longer mid calf length. I also bought a couple pairs of shorts that hit right above the knee. Those I love.

And I've been buying some brown also.

Bummer about the cottage problems. But it's nice to have a cottage.

Enjoy Niagara.

I love love love capris. Love them. And yesterday, I wore that exact outfit. Chocolate is my "color" for this year.

You be a good girl at work. Even though I have missed you the mostest and you are dying to catch up with me.

I was your twin today: chocolate brown lacy top with beige capris. Yikes!

P.S. I wore my new "mules," backless Skechers leather and suede tennis shoes. I get so many compliments on them.

Me? A fashion trendsetter? Double yikes!

Capris, too funny! My 18 year old INSISTED that I invest in some and I'm glad I did..very comfy (and I'm actually in style for once!). I was resistent at first as well. *sigh* Gotta give in to the trends once in a while!

Gorgeous pics! Sorry about the water problems, but WOW are you so lucky to have a cottage! Someday we want to get a "get-away" place too!

PS - my name isn't BuggyBaby :) LOL!
