Weekly Round-Up

This week I.....

.... did some modeling for art.

Here's me back in 1912:

It was a Downton Abbey Tea/fundraiser for the Lincoln Choral Artists, and I volunteered to model as part of a little fashion show they had amid cucumber sandwiches, scones, and some AMAZING singing.  The outfit came complete with hat, scarf, gloves, cameo necklace---and petticoat.  It had a series of tiny hook-and-eyes in the back that pretty much told the world that madam had a lady's maid.  The dress was from an estate in here in Lincoln in the Sheridan area.

... had tea with Aunt Monica.
... worked on not one but two freelance writing projects.  I actually had to turn one down that sounded interesting, but if I get overbooked I can't do my best work so.....

And now I'm home sick, trying to write, hoping it's not strep throat, and wishing I was hanging out with my friend Elizabeth making art.
