Different strokes for different folks – I went with some friends to a “sort of” clothing boutique. A local woman sells a brand from her home. The brand is known for comfortable, stretchy and patterned clothes. Some are wildly patterned. There were four of us. It was amazing to see the different reactions. The organizer has clothing from the line and loved almost everything. Another woman found something that she likes. She was pressed for time and had to leave without buying. Another woman did not have a “vibe” for the styles and I was overwhelmed with all the patterns all together. It was sensory overload.
Speaking of folks – The seller has a full-time job and three kids (age 11 and under — way under, like 9 months). She has the energy of that bunny (you know the one I mean). She had at least a thousand pieces of clothing inventoried and an enthusiasm that would be hard to match. What’s that saying? “If you do what you love you won’t work a day in your life.”
Animal people — Gracie (youngest cat) is doing well after her surgery earlier this week. I was at the veterinarian three times and met or talked to people on each trip. No one gets me like a fellow pet owner. We can talk for hours about the mundane as long as it involves pets. Pee, poop, litter texture, size of kibble – nothing is boring.
March blows – Big time! We are closing out the month as one of the coldest. After above normal averages for January and February, March in coming in pretty far under average. I’m looking forward to April Fool’s Day just to turn the calendar.
Being an adult blows too – We don’t have a lot of “dress up” affairs to attend. Our area is very casual. However, I have a wedding in a few weeks. We don’t have many of those either as everyone is grown. Those who want to wed, probably are. That means only one dress up event this year. So do I buy shoes I don’t need because it would be fun or do I be the practical adult? Time will tell. BTW I’m wearing my funeral dress. It has nothing to do with the wedding but a year or two back I found a great dress that I love. My rational was that I would need it for funerals and damn, my friend’s mother died within a month. Haven’t had an event since.
So how was your week?
