We were on the road in good time and had an hour or so to spare so she directed me to turn into the mall.
An hour to peruse the new lines...
she likes to keep up with what's current and I think shopping is a habit or hobby of hers.
(she was the manager of a ladies boutique after her many years of nursing and she loved that job)
Mother said "I'm going to look around so off you go and good luck."
I said "Mother how will you find me later you don't have a cellphone?"
Mother "Oh I don't think I'll have any trouble!"
Hostess "Well if you are having trouble make a "hoo hoo" sound and call my name!"
Mother "Oh I'd have you paged over the loud speaker before I'd resort to that nonsense."
So we parted our ways and I went foraging in the aisles.
Here's the Loot I scooped...
woven black and cream flats with rope/jute detail.
leather flats with cut out detail at the heel
raised textured insoles for foot stimulation
new health technology perhaps?
Jones New York
black and white striped polo style shirt
I'll wear the collar open and maybe some pearls at the neck.
lightweight tunic top in a BOLD shade of salmon
I'll wear this with leggings.
Black lightweight jacket
material has a sheen and is rainproof.
I managed to find all of these in 45 minutes
for just under $200.
Fast and Frugal
My sister snapped this photo of Mother and I
I snapped one of her with Mother as well.

I considered deleting this image
as I have mixed feelings about posting it.
I don't feel like a large woman but I am
especially when you factor in my height and my weight.
Body image is a funny thing
some women see themselves as fat when they are stick insect thin
then there are those like myself who spend years avoiding mirrors
Mater mentioned a bit about our insecurities about revealing our true selves recently on her blog
go have a read...
On the morning of our departure we awoke to
a dusting of snow!
I had not packed for the cold and I wore my ballet flats sans hose
thank heavens for seat and car heaters!
these crocus look chilled...
There were flurries on the way home but we were warm and cozy
and arrived home safe and sound.
Mother was quite anxious about the weather
being snowbound is a concern
it's melted and thankfully she's able to come and go as she pleases.
I'm going to go to the pool and swim some laps
I love swimming!
