So that week happened.
1) Master Danger is now on (temporary) medication for a minor but annoying condition, and that medication means he has to go pee every two hours. He seems to be peeing each time approximately twice the amount of liquid he is actually consuming and I have NO IDEA what is happening. Also, sigh.
2) I am in the throes of allergy badness at the moment. This morning I went for a walk (damn the pollen), and then came home and collapsed in a little heap. For the next five hours -- a) I have told myself I can't take Benadryl because it makes me sleepy and unable to function, b) I have tried to do some Important Task, c) I have utterly failed because allergies also make me sleepy and unable to function. So yeah.
3) I love love love the Victoria Beckham Autumn-Winter 2017 collection that was shown today in NYC. I cannot even tell you how I want to live in these garments, including the gloves. Like, I want to wear this dress every damn day of the year. I would travel around the globe so it would always be the perfect weather to wear that dress. I LOVE IT.
And as I contemplated how I love these clothes and yet would have to lose weight to wear them, I made a batch of oatmeal-cranberry cookies. What is wrong with me?
4) I tried to watch the second episode of this Abbie-free season of Sleepy Hollow, despite not making it all the way through Episode One. (I have been thinking a lot about Tom Mison, for reasons which need not be explored at this juncture.) Made it literally three minutes in before bolting for the hills. Dear Sleepy Hollow Season 4 writers, While I know that the official line was that Crane and Abbie were Just Good Friends and Witnesses, the ACTUAL SHOW enacted for three seasons that their Witness-Bond was Too Intense to be Platonic Work-Colleagues. I mean, like this. So, writers, when the successor to Abbie as Crane's Witness partner is a very young girl, well, GROSS GROSS GROSS.
May you have better lists for your week ahead. :)

Here also all is sneezy, dopey, and grumpy. This has been the worst for allergies that I can remember ever.
You made cookies, that's okay. Nothing wrong with that. Can you give most of them away so you won't be tempted, maybe?
Health to Master Danger, I hope the meds and their side effects are of short duration.
Ugh, it is apparently the worst year for allergies ever. Dislike! I hope you can avoid the worst of them.
I've eaten all the cookies, so I guess the problem is solved. ;) (I only made half a batch, knowing my weakness.)
Hugs hugs to you!

I hope Master Danger is all better soon, and that your allergies abate.
I hadn't even realized the new season of Sleepy Hollow had started, which is just as well...
Yes, I think Sleepy Hollow's four or five episodes in. The ratings are subterranean, they're so bad. Which is a pity, because I DO love Tom Mison, but just no.
My cat doesn't take a med that accounts for it, but she definitely lets out more than is felinely possibly for a body to hold...
And I was just noticing tonight that the pollen is a month early. Itchy eyes, scratchy throat, ick. I take Zyrtec all the time because Benadryl is bad in other ways than just making me sleepy, and so now I probably should switch to Allegra, but I'm afraid that I won't sleep. So instead I use eye drops and lots of water and guaifenesin. Ick again.
Allergies are apparently awful *everywhere* right now except possibly the Northeast and the mountains. Dislike.
Cheers and joys to you!
Ugh, allergies. I hope you all DO have a better season, regardless of exploding flora everywhere due to the rain.
I would, of course, always wear boots with that dress.
Hugs hugs to you! So glad to hear from you!

That's a very nice dress, funny how the rest of the collection is very baggy and almost unstructured where a couple of the dresses are form fitting.
The vibe of the collection is very 40s and very Kate Hepburn, as fashion critic and commentator Tim Blanks said. I watched the runway video, and even the seemingly unstructured clothes move beautifully with the body. But yes, this dress is cut closer to the body. :)
