I promise, it's not going to be All Project 333, All The Time around here. I'll try to post a collage of the week's outfits and maybe some comments about the project on Fridays. I did want to share my final list of items, though. I'm already really unhappy with the fit of one thing (note to self, try on sweaters before committing to wear them for three months), so I may replace it. I am proud that rather than buy new long-sleeved v-neck shirts as I was planning, I found two in my winter boxes that should work just fine.
Print jersey dress
U.P. LBD dress (still waiting for it to arrive)
Mint green cardigan
Gray turtleneck (this is the unhappy sweater; it fits oddly. I had forgotten.)
Black cap-sleeved knit shirt
Gray v-neck long sleeved shirt
Handknit sweater (trying to finish for Rhinebeck!)
Love me t-shirt
Black long-sleeved shirt
Gray a-line skirt
Yesterday I packed away the items still in my closet and bureau that aren't part of the list. I felt sad putting my jewelry box away, but I know I'll have a lot of fun in January when all these things seem new again.
What one item would you HAVE to have on your list of 33?
Today was a teaching day, so I went with my print dress and pink Pearl Harts, along with my watch and necklace. I wore my jean jacket to protect me from the rain and carried my purse. I was grateful for my umbrella!
I'm going to strive to post each week's outfits every Friday. My final list (I'm hoping for nicer weather tomorrow so I can shoot some pix of the pieces making up the list) will be posted over the weekend.
If you're visiting via Courtney's blog: hi! Welcome! Let me know if you're playing along, too, okay?
Thanks for the comfort food comments yesterday. You made my mouth water!
Hope you have fun plans for the weekend. I'm pretty sure I'll have a new window to show you by Sunday night.
1. Leftover birthday cake. I made carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. The birthday boy plans to have a slice a day until it is either gone or no longer good. I'm trying to refrain from eating any more than the sliver I had yesterday.
2. Homemade catsup/ketchup (I need to investigate the differences/usages of the word). I remember having homemade ketchup at my grandmother's house when I was a kid, but when I asked (on FB) if any of my cousins had her recipe, I was told she, in fact, did not make it. A different grandmother not related to me did. My father feels this is false information. Anyway, one cousin sent me a packet of starch/spices mix, and yesterday I made it. Pretty tasty.
3. Two pints of canned tomatoes. I canned pints of raw tomatoes in their own juice on Sunday, but the two in the fridge didn't seal properly. I may use the whole batch in lentil soup this week just in case.
4. Brita water pitcher. It sure takes up a lot of room, and one of these days we'll get to putting a filter on the faucet. One of these days.
5. Half gallon of Farmer's Cow skim milk. Neal toured some of the farms that contribute milk as part of a work seminar. He's not easily impressed, but he came home impressed at the excellence of the farm. I buy only their eggs, too, although I'm still hoping to get my own chickens to have REALLY local eggs!
6. Leftover pizza. Requested birthday dinner last night was pizza, so pizza it was!
7. Two sweet potatoes. Fall makes me want baked potatoes, and the sweet ones are even tastier!
8. Kalamata olives. I love to toss a few of these on salads.
10. Tube of tomato paste. Hoping to make my favorite tomato soup recipe this week, which needs only a few tablespoons of tomato paste. Tubes of paste last a lot longer than the cans.
How about you? Anything tasty in your fridge today?
Last week I dug into the difficult work of actually packing away my clothes for Project 333. One thing to talk about doing it. A little different to put my words into action. One more final box to fill by the end of the month, and I'll be ready to see where this experiment takes me.
