Diamond Dust

Everything seems covered in a thin layer of ice lately--car windows in the morning are touched by ice crystals, sidewalks are patchwork quilts of ice and slush and salty pieces that you skip from like a child pretending the living room carpet is lava. One of the lakes near to me had frozen to such a degree that people were skating and playing hockey on it. I nearly always equate ice skating with man-made rinks and monstrous Zambonis, so it was quite charming to watch a family skate across cloudy ice along rows of frosty canoes. Despite the beauty of diamond dust and other winter scenes I'm still eager for slightly warmer days when venturing outside feels less treacherous and the walk to the store or your car doesn't seem to require blades on the bottom of your shoes.

I can't help but to notice...have you lost weight? You seem rather skinny and unhealthy, for some reason.

@Bivisyani Questibrilia, I haven't lost any weight recently that I know of. My clothes fit the same and I try not to weigh myself. I don't know why I look unhealthy to you, but other than eating too many french fries recently I don't think I've been particularily unhealthy in my living habits.

I love this outfit! Also to Bivisyani Questibrilia, I'm sure you're just concerned and not meaning to come across the wrong way but I feel it is important to say how it isn't okay to question a woman on how she looks. I'm sure you know that we are bombarded with messages and expectations about how we should look and present ourselves in order to be accepted in this society. Considering that, we really have no place to question each others bodies. Just like we need to be more accepting of bigger body types (we are all beautiful in our own way, there is more than one way to be attractive) we need to accept without question the more petite builds too. I hope this doesn't come across preachy, I just feel really strongly that we should all be giving each other a break when it comes to body stuff. Share the love and all that! :)
