Miriam's Week of Feminine Dress - Day 2

I want to apologize for getting this out so late. I wanted to do it this morning, but I had to leave for work and didn't have time.

I woke up at about 6:45 am this morning. Dragging myself to the kitchen, I got a cup of coffee (yes, I love the stuff!) and sitting down, I finished my book. Then I put on my denim tiered skirt and button-up blue blouse. I bought the skirt at Walmart a couple of years ago and the blouse I received from someone many years ago. Yet another all-blue outfit. =) Note the sleepiness of my face. I'm still really tired. After staying up late the night before, I was a little sleepy the next morning.
After getting dressed for the day, I practiced a little piano and flute. Then I got on the computer for about 25 minutes before our piano teacher arrived for lessons. I took my lesson first so that I could go to work. After my lesson, I got together my things and left for the library (where I work and one my favorite places!). I wanted to get pictures at work, but didn't get a chance. Before we opened, I shelved books to make space for the books that would inevitably arrive throughout the day. At about 12 o'clock, the other volunteer showed up and we got to work on the Summer Reading Program. As the name of the program is "Catch the Reading Bug!", the children get little bugs glued onto paper jugs for each book they read or class they attend. So, we get to glue the bugs on the jars...and believe me, by the end of the day you wouldn't want to see another bug for the rest of your life. =) I wanted to get pictures of working at the library, but I was too busy. Oh well.

About six o'clock, Mother picked me up and we headed to Prattville for band practice. Mother had made me a grilled cheese for supper to eat on the way. By this time, I was wishing I could go home and fall in the bed, but I pulled myself together for practice. Mother was able to snatch a picture at the end of practice, but please excuse my looks. I look the way I feel at that moment in the picture.

Thankfully, band practice ended about 20 minutes early, so we got home about 9:45 pm. I got ready for bed and turned out the lights but I couldn't go to sleep for the longest, so I read a little bit, then tried to sleep again. It was still about 11 pm when I actually fell to sleep.

Yay! I finally got Tuesday posted. Now I have to put Wednesday's post together.

Thou are busy! Just don't get too busy. :)

Your pictures are pretty! I don't have an ounce of musical talent and I envy anyone that can play. ^^

You have some full days! It's fun to do this together with you. The funny thing is, I almost wore that same skirt on Tuesday. =)

Miriam Rebekah said...

Yes, this is fun. I wore my brown skirt on Wednesday that you wore on Tuesday. =)

I think it would be fun to work at a library. Even if I had to glue bugs all day. :)
