I have a cold. And while normally I would either soak it up like a drama queen, and complain about going to work, or be incredibly peeved and ignore it until it got worse, I've kind of accepted it. I get to drink tea and honey, I can bring tomato soup to work, and eat it out of a mug. I can cuddle up in blankets at home, and wear socks and sweaters in eighty degree weather, well for a little while anyway.
I can forego obligations to clean my room, or wishes to sew, and I can cuddle up with a warm mug of tea, and read or watch Netflix. All things I love! Of course I am not one of those people who have cute colds. I don't get a pink nose, or an adorable little sneeze, I don't get clearer skin, because my face doesn't loose oil. My nose looks the same, though that's no problem, I always liked my nose. My sneezes are like fog horns, that wake my sister from across the room at night. My mind is foggy and unable to do one task without falling asleep or moving quickly to another that I won't complete, confusing the process of what needs to be done. Last weekend I left work with an empty desk, and now I feel like it will just continue to pile up higher and higher until I am squashed. Orders, Motions, Declarations, and the occasional letter are swarming around me like that last scene in Alice in Wonderland replaying a wonderful dream until it's a horrible nightmare. Does that make sense? I need to go to bed.

Boots; Netflix; Sweaters; Life

Well I have been quite busy and the past year has gone by in a flash, and yet it feels slow in someway. Even though it was months and months ago May feels like it was just a corner away. The beginning of the year was uneventful enough, I got a break from 4-H and returned in time for presentations, and Record Books. Finished my final year with an All-Star role, and ready to become the Cake Decorating leader in my club The Trailblazers this winter. This spring my great-grandmother passed away and it hit really hard. She had Parkinson's for so long, and was bedridden. It truly crushed me because she was such an amazing woman. She is very missed, though I know she's no longer in pain.

All I do anymore is work. I need to get my license at some point but I keep putting it off. Right now I'm just set on getting the house clean so we can put up Autumn decorations. As I mentioned in my previous post Carrie Fletcher's Letters To Autumn have been amazing to watch these past few weeks, it makes me so warm inside to hear another person say wonderful things about my favourite time of year.

I feel so ready to curl up with a good book, and a cup of tea. If only it weren't in the high sixties through the seventies like it's been for the past few months. I've started watching Gilmore Girls again, I am proud to say that I watched my DVDs to death and was so excited they were being put on Netflix. That show will always have a special place in my heart. Especially at this time of year. So far my Autumn has been great. I still don't know what I'm doing for Halloween, but I have three weeks to figure that out. I just hope the temperature continues to drop.

Today I wore an incredibly comfortable outfit. My blouse is from Target. It has some great lacing on the sides, but it was tucked in so you can't really see it.

The skirt is something I stole from my sister's closet, because I don't have a decent black skirt anymore. My sweater is from Anthropologie. I've had it for a while now. It's one of my favourites and I never wear it. I don't know why that is. It's got some really great lattice work on the edges and it's just so cozy! I also love the little carved buttons on it.


My Shoes are Dexflex comfort by Dexter. I've never heard of this brand before, I got them from my grandmother and all I know is they're cute and super comfortable, which I find is never present when talking about crunch flats. I love them so much!

As a side note, I actually bought a brand new pair of shoes this week, but they didn't go with my outfit, I'll have to ware them this week to show them off. They are Mossimo, and floral and so amazing! I have a new black dress I'm going to ware them with when it's a bit cooler.

Well that has pretty much been my life for a while. I'm going to try to post here a bit more this Autumn and Winter. and do some more outfit posts, as well as some stuff I'm working on. This next week I'm going to try to get my bedroom clean so that we can move kids around. And then hopefully get some new stuff on figment, since I have been neglecting it for far too long. Talk soon! ~Delaney

Leather Jacket

Quick post here because it's super late. I bought a new jacket, though it's not actually leather, so I thought I'd share it. Pretty uneventful day but it just felt long. Do you ever have those days? Anyway I got this jacket at Target, and I absolutely love it, it's just perfect. I've wanted one like this for so long, but they never seem to look good on me. I really liked it with this dress I borrowed from my sister, who's traveling the world at the moment, and this is the first time I've worn these legwarmers, so that made a nice change. It's finally starting to cool down so hopefully it will stay that way, we got really miserable in the middle of August, and then there was hope with some flash floods(one of which I walked across town with lunch, and no sweater, jacket or umbrella in. True story!), but it heated up soon after that. Now as we delve into the second week of October it has started to cool a bit more. Which means that my idea that if I dress like it's Autumn then California would get it's shiz together was not a silly plan after all. Anyway I am looking forward to Autumn more and more, and then Carrie Fletcher went and made the most amazing series, and I almost cried, because it was eighty degrees when I saw them. I love Autumn, It's my favourite time of the year. So pretty, and calm. Well I told myself I'd keep it short on a work night, and I'll stick with that. Hopefully I'll post soon. Love to all! ~Delaney

One Day

One day we will go there. We will see all the people we love, we will be with our friends, and family, even those we have never met before. We will sing songs, play games, watch one another discuss the future of our lives. We will be friends or foes, we will get lost in a sea of people who have been found. We will be ourselves by being someone completely different. We will meet our heroes, or we will be our own. In fact some of us could meet our heroes while being our heroes. We will quote fond memories, whilst making some new ones to treasure. We will find new armor and weapons that we will only use for joy. We will stand out while fitting in. We will look into the future while remembering the past. New foes, and new friends will be reviled to us, and we will welcome them all with open arms, because, as we all know too well, they won't be with us long. Yes we will be suspicious of them at first, for we will always be skeptics of those who join our family this way, but in the end we will either hate how much we love them, or love how much we hate them. We will see old friends, and new ones, and embrace them all as family.

And we will be a story. Because that's all we are in the end. Stories. But we'll make it a good one. One Day. Yes one day we will go to Comic-Con.

I live an hour away, and I have never been to Comic-Con. But by Grabthar's Hammer(50 Points to Gryffindor if you get that reference) I will go one day!

This year the members of my family are starting to go off on their own adventures: one in Texas, one in Norway. We've all been very, very close our entire lives, and now we're growing up(though more than half of us are over 18), and it's starting to become lonely at home. But I'm making a promise right now that one day, when we're all home here in California(and are early enough to get ten tickets), we will all go to Comic-Con.
Have a lovely weekend those of you not doing 4-H Record Books last minute like I do.
