Winter wonder, I can't drive in this stuff

Winter wonderland in Victoria today. David sent these pics of his house, and not a trace to be found at my house...but BLOODY cold

i'm wearing:
cardigan from Costa Blanco
tee from Costa Blanco
Joe grey harem pants
beige Costa Blanco boots

paired with a thrifted beanie cap

I heard today was Dad's best day ever, they let him have JELLO, wiggly jiggly jello.  seems silly but after almost a month without food by mouth, hhhmmm yummy, I hope it was orange, thats my favorite. Yesterday in physio they had Dad sitting on the edge of the bed and even standing. guess he thought he could do that by himself today..not so much

poor thing, looks like I gave my new friend a little too much light loving

Elvis mania!

Oh my gosh after 22 days the man finally gets a drink of water, what!  not scotch

Dad has been asking for water since I talked to him prior to his surgery, finally got it today. he looks alot better as well

they did a rush dialysis yesterday as he was getting fluid in his lungs. who would have realized all that the kidneys do?

today he looks tons better and has even started physio for his bones, I laid in bed for four days with the flu and felt crappy, work hard Dad

my favorite house of Elvis'

1174 N. Hillcrest road, google it and go down to street view, I love looking around

I just love this house and have studied it throughly, the pics I copied are crappy but you can go to Pricillas website and check out all the houses he lived in, quite a bit of info on all types of things from the time Pricilla was with Elvis

scroll down and go to Presley homes

he was such a private person, a recluse actually. poor thing, he was so famous he couldn't really go out in public. I've read more interviews from people that travelled with him and felt sorry for him. while they were all say, going to the beach to enjoy, Elvis had to stay behind cooped up in the hotel so there wouldn't be a mob scene. other than his inner cirlce he trusted few and had few close friends.  one of all people that sticks out is none other than Tom Jones

Graceland and this home in LA were the two places that fans lined up outside day and night to see the King come and go. he was soooo good to them always stopping to sign autographs and coming out to the gate to greet people

as it looks today

whomever owns this house today has it listed as a lease at 25,000 a month, here is the link to that site

1174 N. Hillcrest road

what i'm wearing:
Costa Blanco purple cardigan
Target black and grey striped tee
black Joe balloon skirt
black opaque striped Target tights
thrifted black Billabong leather belt with attached coin purse
newly thrifted black wedges

I was so pleased to finally find these black wedges, I have been searching for ages and knew it was just a matter of time

oh and look at these chanellesque quilted black wedge boots I found at the thrift store recently. I like them but wish the faux fur wasn't on them so I could wear them year round

and sharing a little heat and light with my new friend, trying to stop and smell the roses or tulips in this case. i'll do anything to add a little brightness into my day

The unkown state

Well lots of good things are happening

Dads kidneys are still giving it a good go, not quite 100% but doctors are hopefull for a full recovery because he didn't have any prexisting condition

they say it could take months so plenty of time.

he is anxious and seemed to calm down once Mom arrived today.  their wondering why he's still confused...Ah, Dad's never done drugs before, i'm not a doctor, i'm guessing he's pretty high.  hope its fun.  oh Mom should video his antics and we can see if he remembers anything.  he has at one point pulled out an IV so his hands are teathered from time to time, how horrible does that sound

its a waiting game and maybe i'm asking too much for now?

i'll post a couple of outfits I haven't yet as one day is rolling into the other right now

what i'm wearing:
newly thrifted 80's mock up dress
black Jacob sweater
newly thrifted Kenneth Cole moccassin boots
gifted bacalite bracelets from my Mom
Express flower ring
Tibeton ball bought in Thailand

what i'm wearing:

R&W sweater which I realized I don't like and gifted to T
H&M black faux leather patch leggings
black and neutral patent pumps
thrifted bone like belt

looked up the other night at work and saw this beautiful sky, couldn't resist a pic

no wonder we talk about our weight at work, this is what we get up to on a Saturday night

this is what I prefer to eat. its like eating pie
you cut up an apple and banana and sprinkle with cranberries and walnuts
heat in the microwave for 3minutes then add two no fat yogurts, it is soooo goood

I can look out this window for as long as good health takes to it coming soon?
