It's less dangerous than a flat out panic

DKNY Dress (thrifted)
Seychelles Leopard Print Wedges
Icing Necklace
Dockers Knee Socks
Leather Clutch (thrifted)

It was still cold this day, so a warmer dress with knee socks was nice. (I suppose I could have just worn pants.)  But after working on the roof and on the house all week, it was nice to put on a cute dress.   It's been a lot of work and were3 really trying to stay on top of everything since winter just isnt that far away.  At least the house is starting to look cuter on the inside,  I'll toot my own horn though and say that I'm a freaking awesome painter.  So fast even if I do the stationary Panic when a spider drops on me.

Patrick McManus reference aside, I finally got Ev hooked on those books.  My dad got me reading those at a very young age and they always delighted me so much, even to this day I can reread one and within a chapter be laughing so hard I'm crying.  Ev didn't really get the books until he went hunting with dad last fall and dad pulled a classic out, the good old "You go that way to the old logging road and we'll meet up a few miles down it.  You can't miss it!"

Hours later, Evan emerges from the woods....

If you've never read those books, I urge you do to so right now.  His tales about his dog Strange will kill you, mostly from not being about to breath while laughing so hard.
