my stress is starting to ebb.
Mother gave me a list of things to do for her as she is not quite ready to step out of her condo and pop herself into her BMW convertible just yet.
I finally got to wear my newest grape drape bamboo dress by Gilmour.
I paired it with my newest Hermes silk scarf.
donned some artsy earrings
these are as old as the hills
made by a creative girlfriend
I have never tired of them and they have survived every jewelry purge.
I took myself out for a bite of lunch before returning to Mother's condo.
Beet, orange, feta and kale salad
I sat outside among the plants on a French iron chair and a matching table
in the nursery/cafe that is known as The Demitasse.
I took deep breaths and savoured the tastes of the delicious ingredients and sipped a tall cool glass of water.
Kale is so delicious and nutritious
it was just what I needed.
I had my hair cut and tinted today
I feel refreshed.
I bought this in Seattle on my hour at Nordstrom's.
baby soft linen
unconstructed with a relaxed summer
off white on the outside pure white inside
this will be going out with Hermes peinture fraiche at some point
Did you see what clever ideas Janice from the Vivienne files came up with for my scarf?
I bought two new tanks for layering
women in mid life know all about the advantages of layering
it's not a secret that
we can keep our cool with grace.
can you see the theme going on here?
is inspiring me no end

since having discovered bamboo clothing
I think I could live in yoga pants and tanks all day long
and be very happy inside my wee Bungalow.
The kind of happy that says a freshly brewed cup of tea,
take one magazine
a sunny spot
a comfy chair
in view of some gorgeous roses...
Mother's on the mend and I am feeling so relieved
immense gratitude is filling me up.
I've booked myself into the spa for a manicure/pedicure next week
so I am taking care of myself
and thank you all for your kind comments.
If anyone knows where I can find another bread tin like this vintage one please let me know.
Peg from Comox covets mine and I'd like to help her find one.
give yourself permission to be lovely and beautiful.
