Holy Kamoly – I almost missed posting today. Yikes.
I enjoyed my shopping trip with mom yesterday. We both had Christmas parties for which we had to get outfits and I had birthday money to spend. So, after we braved Costco we went to Additionelle (yes I have to shop at a store that has the word “addition” in the name) and bought this top (click on #6 – novelty skirts) with this skirt. The skirt doesn’t look so nice in this photo, but it looks good on. The top is – eh hem – a little more daring than I would normally buy. Don’t let the photo fool you. It looks like it’s loose, but it so is not. It sucks in quite tight and shows off my…assets. I think I look good in it, but…well. It’s just different than I’d normally wear. I tend to wear more conservative outfits like #4 here. But I’m feeling a little old and boring lately and I’m in the mood to spice things up a bit. I also bought one of these contraptions. Oh yeah. I’ll be sucked in. And no pantie lines. Hooooo-rah.
After shopping we went for lunch, and then stopped in at Chapters – where I used to work. Adrian asked me to pick up a book of his that just came out and then, since I was there, I decided to get another one of Philippa Gregory’s historical novels – The Boleyn Inheritance. I can’t wait to dig into the story. Of course, I don’t know how much more cleaning in my basement I’ll get done as a result!
Today we had a Junior Forest Wardens event. It was a little different from our regular activities in that we were baking! We were getting ready for the annual craft/bake sale at our local community hall. We had fun while baking up some delicious cookies.
We also ran out of water at home today, which is very annoying. We have a cistern which is, essentially, 2 huge water tanks. We get the water delivered by truck about every three weeks. And today we ran out. This doesn’t happen often, but when it does it seems to be on a weekend when we can’t order more water. So, we had to go next door with jugs to pilfer some water from our neighbours. It’s amazing how grateful you become of water when you don’t have it at your finger tips.
And that’s my weekend. I was hanging out with my family tonight, getting ready to make myself a mocha, when the light bulb turned on in my brain and I remembered about posting. Whew. It would’ve just been terrible to have fallen out of NaBloPoMo! he he he 😉
