Happy Monday ladies. I am smack dab in the middle of my second two weeks of quarantine:) I finished the first with my daughter last month and I’m now doing it with my husband. The air quality was so bad back at home, I spent weeks trying to convince him to join me here in Vancouver. He finally decided to come up just in time for the smoke to blow in from Oregon and Washington state causing the worst air quality Vancouver has ever seen! Can I hear it for Murphies Law? We’ve rented a little condo in downtown Vancouver with lovely views out over Englishmans Bay, that we can finally see because the smoke has cleared.
So besides freedom, here are a few things on my mind this week:
Yup, I have had slippers on my mind before but I forgot to pack mine. Seriously, what was I thinking because now that I’m in quarantine again, I’m wearing them ALL the time. No quick trip to the backyard to pick tomatoes. No quick trip anywhere so I am living in them. I popped into Winners after the last quarantine and picked up these which are really cozy. I know the holidays are coming and I’ll need a fresh pair by then so I’m pursuing ones online.
I was in some strange brain fog when I packed for this trip because I only brought clothes for warm summer days. The weather is changing to fall here so I had my husband bring an extra bag with some cozier things for me. The first thing I put on was a cashmere sweater. He brought my four Everlane sweaters which I was thrilled to get. Until I put this one on and found a tiny moth hole in the sleeve! That means the little suckers are inside my armoire at home where I keep ALL my cashmere and feasting themselves into bloated cashmere coma’s! Argh!!
I always clean my sweaters before I store them for the summer so this is a very unhappy surprise. Because I hate the smell of mothballs, I use cedar boards and lavender inside my antique armoire, but apparently, it’s not enough. I fully intend to mend this tiny hole, but moths are nasty little stinkers and I know they’ll get to it again one day so I ordered a replacement.
I never thought of myself as the plaid flannel type of dresser until I bought this one several years ago. It gets softer with each washing and is so comfy. I wore it the last weekend we were over on Vancouver Island and it was a perfect weight. I love the color and its relaxed vibe is perfect for weekends so I have my eye out for other pretty colors.
I’m bored with everything I’m trying to read these days. I keep picking things up and three pages later, I put them down. They may be great books, but I’m not feeling the love. Until my husband showed up with my dog eared copy of Rules of Civility. I love this book so much I’ve already read it twice! Since he finished it on the plane, I started it again. I wonder how many times you can reread the same novel and enjoy it. I’m going to find out.
What books have you read multiple times?
Have a great week ladies and remember to wear what makes you feel confident and fabulous!
