I bought Geoff this green gingham shirt at the mall. A slim fit, extra small. Oh my little darling. I hope he likes it because I can't return it. Yikes!
The lovely young man in large glasses and a bowtie who helped me dig out the one extra small from amongst the many larges and extra larges asked me if I was a university or college student, because I would get a discount. I said that I wasn't, and he said I looked like one. I wanted to hug him.
Then I went to H&M where I bought these ridiculous lavender (lavender again!) sunnies. This is the trashiest photo I will ever post -- I am feeling brave today! Me in my underwear showing you the tattoo I got when I was a teenager. I know, I know, 'tis a beaut! In any case, there is a certain young lady arriving in Toronto soon; when you arrive I promise to spirit you away for the occasional ridiculous accessory binge at H&M. Sometimes a pair of $4.90 lavender tights does wonders for the poor soul who is writing papers on metadata retrieval & whatnot.
I can testify! Here are my new lavender tights, worn with my Frye t-straps. Oh, you noticed my mismatched ankles? Yes! One of the perils of living in the hinterland is ice. Sometimes one falls and breaks one's ankles and they never heal in a pretty way again.
Now I am at home, Geoff has come through the door, I have fresh coffee, and Belle & Sebastian playing. I am also admiring the recipe cards I got for my friend Kate for her birthday. They arrived today: custom letterpress cards from The Petite Press. I am in awe of these cards! Inexpensive ($18 for 20), beautiful, and the packaging was so lovely! I know Kate will like them. She has the prettiest name!
I hope you are all enjoying this glorious day wherever you are. xo
