#365feministselfie: Week 21

I am participating once again in the #365feministselfie project, now in its sixth year. Here is a thread for others to share selfies and/or talk about the project, visibility generally, self-appreciation, and related topics. And also because I always just love seeing your splendid faces!

A few of my selfies over the last two weeks:

image of me in a full-length mirror, wearing grey-framed glasses, dark blue jeans, a white t-shirt, and a grey cardigan, with my hair pulled up into a bun on the top of my head
Probably the last chance I'll have to wear this sweater this year!

image of me from the shoulders up, wearing grey-framed glasses and a grey tank top, smiling
A thank-fuck-it's-Friday grin.

image of me standing in a full-length mirror, with my hair down, wearing black-framed glasses, a long black tunic, a pink skirt with a pattern of black insects on it, and black loafers
A honey bee in an insect skirt for her 45th birthday.

image of me from the shoulders up, with my hair down, wearing light makeup, black-framed glasses, and a black top
This is 45.

image of me standing in my garden from the shoulders up, wearing grey-framed glasses, a black and grey t-shirt, and a bright yellow and pinky-orange straw hat, the brim of which I'm lifting with my hand clad in a yellow gardening glove
Weeding and planting.

(And wearing a too-big hat that I carried in my hand all the way back from Puerto Rico, because I wore it all over and didn't want to leave it behind or smash it in my bag, and I'm glad I didn't, because it is a perfect gardening hat.)

image of me from mid-chest up, standing in front of an evergreen, wearing grey-framed glasses and my Mr. Celery t-shirt, pointing to a sticker on my chest reading 'I Voted'
I voted!

image of me standing in a full-length mirror, with my hair down, wearing grey-framed glasses, a blue blouse with a floral pattern, pink jeans, and white sneakers
'Twas a pink jeans day.
