Mr. HB takes shopping seriously, it's something more of a chore or a job that must be tackled.
He does a major shop twice a year and buys in bulk...trousers, shirts, ties and jackets.
All are put together in a mix and match fashion which can be worn for the next 6 months (at least).
He has a lot of meetings so he must look pulled together; he is a partner in the firm and does have to look professional, which of course he does with his creative and arty eye and my love of shopping.
We went shopping this weekend and he did not find much to his liking.
He did buy 2 shirts and some casual wear...so another trip for business attire will be coming soon.
After traipsing about many shops he suggested lunch and I jumped at the chance!
One of his favourite foods is pasta and we were fortunate enough to find a table available at our favourite pasta place on the way home.
Mr. HB's Pasta Bolognese
he had a glass of locally brewed beer with this
Hostess's Penne with Peas and Gorgonzola
I indulged in a glass of Bacchus
from a Cowichan Valley Vineyard
It was a delicious lunch
when we came home we were both very sleepy!
This casual shirt exudes warm weather and says vacation to me.
Simple blue linen short sleeved shirt
I can see both of these worn aboard the Chris Craft
or lunching in a quaint seaside cafe.
Look at this postcard
it is from the lovely blogger
While Mr. HB napped with his current novel in hand
I read through recent magazines.
Pepper lay beside me in a patch of sunshine.
A day off to relax is so important
a day to spend
with someone you love
be it a friend
a day to focus
that we all must pay our dues.
