High Desert Self Portrait

Here I am at my new home in the high desert. It snowed last night. I took this this morning. The air is so chilly and the puddles have ice in them still. So I gave up on drying clothes on the line and headed to the laundromat where it was nice and warm. I managed to forget my purse but I called home and got my library card number so I could use the library's computer. My computer at home is stuck with a dial-up connection until Verizon adds more DSL ports. So I'm behind on all my blogging. I can only blog at the library because it takes about an hour to make a blog post from home, if it works at all.

Yesterday it rained, hailed, then snowed.

The snow on the local hills behind my house.

Purse Repair

Today's task was to fix a handbag for a friend. She got it used, with broken straps. So that's what I'm doing in my self-portrait.

New Self Portraits

I've started doing daily self portraits again. In some way it helps me learn about myself and focus my energies. I just realized how often I wear blue.  For it not being one of my favorite colors, how do I end up with it so often?I'm trying to learn to appreciate myself no matter what my age or weight is.

Here are some of my recent self-portraits.

Sunhat and Glasses

As I age, it's harder and harder to keep taking self portraits. I become obsessed with every new spot on my face, every new wrinkle, jowls, sagging, and my lips getting thinner and thinner.  Still, I hope I have some redeeming qualities. I can find beauty looking at older faces. I just wish I could find it in my own.

New Year's Day Outfit

I wanted to dress up a bit for my new fashion blog. Even in January, it's t-shirt weather in my Anaheim, CA neighborhood. So I'm wearing a sleeveless t-shirt and the new scarf I just bought.
