the kind of days where tension manifests itself in painful knots in the upper back and shoulders.
Pepper our elder cat is still not well despite the meds and it looks like surgery is imminent.
More tests, X-rays, blood work, urinalysis the list goes on...
There have been tears shed and sleep has become sporadic and restless.
And somehow a ray of sunshine appears on the horizon...and it's our darling daughter!
She knew I needed her support and so she accompanied me to the vet visit.
Daughters are so lovely...I am so very grateful to have her in my life.
After our appointment we went home and got Pepper settled and went out for a healthy lunch at Pure Vanilla in Oak Bay. The day was sunny and warm so we opted to sit outside on the patio.
I had mentioned to my daughter how I had been toying with the idea of a new pair of jeans so we popped over the the mall and checked out what the Gap had and I tried on a few pair but nothing had that Wow Factor.
As we were cruising the mall we detoured into Banana Republic where I spied a cute pair of petite sized jeans...
I tried them on, and well, the rest is history!
I want to tuck my cream silk blouse into the waist so I bought the 30 inch size in petite.
The jeans can be rolled up slightly or worn straight...depends on my mood and the footwear that I choose.
Thinking the red ballet flats will be a great pairing with these and the Breton striped Tee will be "Oh So French!"
Banana Republic "touch of cashmere" sweater
longer in the back
cozy like a warm hug.
I said Yes.
It looks much better on than it does hanging here.
Chester loves bags!
Pepper watched with amusement in her eyes...
Darling daughter shared some of her secret weapons with me...
thank you sweetheart!
The lip balm is AMAZING!
It smells like roses and moisturizes like none other...
The apricot cuticle cream is going to be a mainstay in my arsenal of tricks.
As a gardener I tend to have ragged cuticles despite wearing gloves the hands take a beating.
The pot of cream will be at my bedside and I plan to rub it into my nails every night before bedtime.
I replaced my brown leather watch strap with a new black one and it is like having a new watch.
Well I must get on with my day...I need to keep busy.
so more cleaning is in order
as we await news from the vet as to Pepper's fate.
Hope your week is ticking along nicely.
