Sick in Bed

Hey hey.

I have had bronchitis for a few weeks now. I finally went to the doctor last week and got antibiotics, which haven't made much of a difference yet as it pertains to the cough. Bed has been good to me so I've been visiting it a lot. Getting out of itt for work every morning is a real tear jerker. ;)

Halloween Costume | Cleopatra

Hi yous!

I hope you all got enough spookiness in to last you another year. I had such a fun night with friends. Everyone always goes all-out for Halloween and it's fun to see their creativity on display.

I threw together a Cleopatra costume from items I already had including: a vintage gauze and gold embroidered dress, a beaded necklace that I used as a headpiece, gold gladiator sandals, a necklace from LuLu*s, peacock feather earrings, and a plethora of rings from World Market and Forever 21.

Getting Good at Chopping It All Off

I got my hair cut yet again this week, just in time for today's holiday: Halloween! I am going to be Cleopatra to take advantage of my rare short hair. I'm sure photos from today's festivities will follow, but here is a sneak-peak of the new do!

Morning Pocket

I could sleep forever
No tangled 
In the paisley white sheet 
Always coming detached from the end of the bed

Wafting breeze from the open window
Climbs gently, like a vulture on the wind
Up my leg and across my back, 
Exposed because my shirt is wrapped, 
No Tangled 
Somewhere beneath me 

Chickens rustle leaves outside, 
Finding their morning meal of juicy insects, 
The sound wakes me for a dull moment, 
Opening and closing my consciousness 
Like an ephemeral bloom 

It only drives me to cling to sleep tighter,
In as passive a way as one can possibly cling, 
For too focused a concentration
And this jungle of slumber I have found myself in 
Slips away 

I find myself awake 
Hugging a dilapidated pillow, 
Like I am protecting my young from the many 
Creatures of the forest

And so the day begins 
My Amazonia dreams -
Or whatever they may be -
Slip away, 
Never to be fully remembered
But always to be revisited

I'll always come back to you

Comfiest morning pocket.

A couple months ago I did something fancy at the gym and somehow pulled a rib out of place. The misplaced rib consequently pulled two vertebrae out of place and by the end of the week I was tearing up at my desk at work from the pain and had to ask to go home because I couldn't lift a dress, much less write about it. The chiropractor popped me back into place and I've been fine until ...

I woke up this morning with the same twinge in my back - and it got progressively worse all day! I went to my mom's dance class after work hoping I would magically dance it into place, but I don't think that happened. I'm hoping sleeping will ;) The chiropractor has been called, just in case.

Yesterday I went to a going away party for my friends Brett and Paige that I went to high school with. We all work together at LuLu*s and Brett and I are both on the Creative team. He got into grad school in Oregon (whoop!) and so he and Paige are leaving us! It was a very fun evening despite everyone being sad to see them go. The party was up the hill a bit and the long, moon-filled ride along with the song below were a perfect combo on a nice Monday night drive. Windows downnnnn.

I want to make so many dances to these tunes of hers.

Pray for my tilty spine ;)
