We went out on Friday night to The Oak Bay Beach Hotel pub for a quick bite and stayed up late watching the TV so we slept in on Saturday morning and had a lazy start to the day.
I went to browse the local Target store...aka "the RED STORE" as Isla calls it...
sadly they are closing all the Canadian stores and I am so very disappointed.
I have shopped there more than any other retailer since they opened. I purchased all kinds of things from...toys, bedding, clothes for the grandchildren, kitchen tools, linens, pillows, candles, home decor items to cards and books.
Sunday we had the grandchildren over for a visit and served up some comforting tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches with ketchup...
Henry and Isla both love to chase the cats around our bungalow and they laugh and squeal with delight...
the cats are not used to this pace and got wise to the game and made a hasty retreat downstairs and stayed there until they left.
Grammy and Grampa had a super fun time!
I made a pot roast for dinner...
It's the easiest recipe ever...
I served it with parsnips, carrots, peas and "gravy" made from the cooking stock thickened with a bit of cornstarch mixed with water.
It was just the two of us for dinner but we lit the candles and sat at the dining room table...
not quite Downton Abbey but civilized nevertheless!
Lands' End tunic in black and white stripes
Nygaard ponte knit pants
Mee Too black ballet flats
I have wanted to find red shoes to add some pizazz to my small shoe collection
so when I ordered the Thermacore capris from Lands' End I ordered some red ballet flats.
Harvest Tomato is the name of the shade of the Bianca flats...
They look nice with our kitchen rug...
In the style of the iconic Repetto's from France...
and as a bonus they are currently on sale so they are "budget friendly."
I'm wearing them to French class
g21 denim skinny jeans
Dex grey bulky knit sweater
I'm feeling more energetic and incredibly optimistic today
and Hooray for the sunshine!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
