we had another black out yesterday that lasted well into 5 hours - it happened midway into the work day and there was lots of sewing for me to do and I was so annoyed, we were at the mercy of the hydro company and j and I decided to take the kids to buy them and myself clothes for an upcoming cousin's wedding.
I think it's rather funny that I make things to sell, yet am not a big fan of shopping. I went looking for a dress that would fit and that I would like. I am not a picky dresser but I do know what I like and even though shopping was a nice distraction from the power outage - I was pretty frustrated - I would like the style and cut of something but it would be in a horrible synthetic material that made me sweat the moment I put it on. we were out for three hours shopping - thank goodness I have a patient family - by hour three I was ready to wear jeans and a t-shirt to this wedding. j had other things he needed to find so we separated to better manage our time and I took lliam with me and he was just as determined as I was to find me a dress. I went to the last store feeling defeated and just as I was ready to walk out the door, I spotted a colour I liked in the corner of my eye and there it was the perfect blue coloured linen dress. the change rooms had a huge line so I threw it over what I was wearing and with lliam's encouragement bought it and afterwards lliam and I ran to find j as if we won the lottery.
looking at beautiful flowers and plants keeps my mind off this humidity.
