Red lipstick and a Fedora

1. I am wearing a Fedora and red lipstick as I type. It's my Halloween costume. Actually it's not my actual Halloween costume. My actual costume, a little lame, is a flapper. Mr. P and I are going to a Halloween costume party Friday night as a flapper and a 1920's gangster. But I have to dress up for a work Halloween function tonight and I didn't want to wear my skimpy flapper costume to a work function I'm going as the 20's gangster. Hence the Fedora. I am also sporting men's dress shoes, baggy black slacks with a white blouse and suspenders. I am throwing in the red lipstick for good measure!

2. The weekend away was so nice. I read a lot and I ate soup and watched the fire and played with my darling little cousins who are 2 and 4 and so cute.

3. I am reading a really good book. It is called the Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I would highly recommend it.

4. Remember my lacto-fermendted corn relish. Last night for dinner I dredged thin cut pork chops in masa and fried them in a skilled and then topped them with the corn relish. It was super easy, fast and delicious.

5. Daylight savings is next this weekend and I am very happy as I love daylight savings. I am particularly looking forward to sleeping in Sunday and Monday with my extra hour.


  1. I want to see a picture of that skimpy flapper costume!

  2. I think a flapper is an incredibly fun idea! Love the styles from that era...

  3. I know, the last piece is wonderful- but $3000. Why do I have to have such expensive taste?? But my 2nd favorite is the red one and it is only $100.

    I like your Halloween costume idea. I am looking forwards to scantily clad photos!!! I hope you had a fun time at the work party.
    I just watched Twilight to see what all the fuss was about and to get into the Halloween mood. All I can say is, um....? The cinematography is beautiful and very creative though. We do come from a beautiful part of the country.
