I just never thought it would be so soon!
Colour is creeping into White Wednesday
and the other days of the week for that matter.
Mother and I are planning to go to Seattle for some cross border shopping soon.
We stay at our Home Away From Home
award winning martini bar Oliver's
room service for a superb breakfast
and a great restaurant for dinner
I felt the need for a cross body bag
one that allows easy access
and is hands free.
It is customary that I take Mother's arm
we link arms so she can walk unencumbered by a walking stick
and I help her negotiate uneven pavement.
Red roses on a black leather background
made in Italy by Maurizio Taiuti
my friend L suggested this rose bag to add that "fun factor"
she knows me well
and accepts my conservative style
she who has a flair for fashion
embraces arty bold and creative styles
and buy the bag
after all she says
it's only money!
I can be Brave
and I do like Fun!

Friend and house guest L
I went for a pedicure
at a local esthetic school
it was a no frills experience
"Houston we have a purple"
was chosen by both of us!
we enjoyed a complimentary hand wax
this treatment was very moisturizing
The young woman who gave me my pedicure was so sweet
she couldn't have been a day over 19 and she has already secured a job in a Spa in her hometown.
The cost of this experience was 1/3 of what I usually pay...
the atmosphere is very plain, it's a school
there are no soft cozy terry cloth robes
mineral pools or saunas
fresh bowls of fruit
water or herbal teas
Bento Box lunches
the treatment is the same...
and the students are closely supervised
I might go back!
Houseguest L has now departed
the Bungalow is quite quiet
it's amazing how much two friends can talk about when they get together!
I find that spending time with friends who have a certain style
I see myself in a clearer light
while appreciating the uniqueness that makes them who they are.
I cherish the time that I spend with my family and friends.
Wishing you a Rose-y Fun Filled White Wednesday!
