was in store yesterday
madam woke up with a case of the grumps
and a pain in the
that felt like a pulled muscle
and made me very very .....
the temperature had plummeted overnight
and it was cold and gloomy
but the sun eventually came out and made everything a little brighter
and I remembered that shopping had to be done
and that there was a new shop to go and explore
right next to the
so I made things ship shape and off we went
in the bright sunny day
with a brisk breeze blowing
I don't usually need retail therapy
I don't actually like walking aimlessly through stores
looking at "stuff" I don't need or even want
but I have done it
mostly with friends who seem to need rather a lot of therapy sometimes
so I gave in to the grumps and entered the store.
what a mess
things thrown onto the shelves because that's better than leaving them in the boxes or on the floor!!
lots of stuff I won't be bringing home any time soon or ever!!
I'm sure many of you in the States know this store
and I do remember going into one a while ago, with a friend in her area
and more or less thinking the same thing in that store
messy and not much there.
the prices aren't that much less than the original either, so I don't get all the fuss
that's me.... so I'm all
whatever floats your boat
after wandering about for a while
picking up things and putting them back
aisle after messy aisle
this ^^^^^^^^ up there ^
and any blue blooded crafty type
isn't going to leave with out checking
these babies out
now is she???
so I indulged myself with these
75% wool 25% silk in this one
only one ball unfortunately
my colours too
:) :) :)
this one 100% wool
three balls of that
in soft green and a mauvey mauve!!!
that isn't showing here at allllllll
but believe me when I tell you
and on the sticks already
so with my tiny bag of goodies clutched to my rather ample chest!!!
I hurried to the grocery store to find the man, before he completely filled the cart with
and home we came
another exciting installment of that which is my life
:) :) :)
well the cat was happy to see me back with supplies
after surviving another
couple hours with an empty bowl
the day had become very pretty and after all the domestic things were done
I put on my hoody sweater and went and sat in the sun
with my new therapy aid and started
with the sun on my face
and a smile in my heart
and a few less grumps
all the way across the big pond
oh and this was at the checkout and it was
and it reminds me of the Easters of my childhood
when we would get them filled with luscious chocolates
and keep the boxes
and it was made in Germany
so it's real!!!!
and today I don't have the grumps or a pain in the
I may still BE a pain in the.....
but I can work on that!!!
so off I go to knit knit knit
for a while
and I'll see you all later
thank you for the sweet comments you all leave
that really makes my day too
I am so lucky to have such nice visitors
and so today I'm going to send you
somewheresomeplace nice to go
and even if you aren't into this kind of thing, I'm sure you'll just enjoy the beauty
I found it yesterday and just drooled
all over the keyboard......
