What's a grrl to do when her spirits need a lift? There are several things that came to mind on Saturday morning. First was to spin. I did just that and finished up the third bobbin of CMF Satisfaction, which was a very satisfying moment. The next thought was to head out for a work out...exercise is good for what ails. But, that thought was quickly set aside as the much needed under*garment broke a strap! Crap!
What's a grrl to do when her spirits need a lift and the universe just told her it's time for an foundation overhaul? Go SHOPPING! Yes, a trip to the LYS would have lifted the spirits, but done little to lift the 'grrls' (as Laurie calls them). So, it was off the dreaded mall, a place I haven't stepped foot in for well over a year. A very helpful clerk spent an hour and half with me, brought at least 18 (or so) items for me to try, and finally found the perfect thing (or two). Just to make sure that the mood stays as lifted as the 'grrls'...I went all out and bought the prettiest one, loaded with frills. Sheer brown with green embellishments...what's not to love! (One in pink with black trim and second, all lace in nude, will also soon be mine.) Oh and the proper work-out wear was also purchased, so I made it to the gym.
What's a grrl do when her spirits need a lift? Read the guesses to my contest! (Post below.) You can enter a guess until the warming trend actually comes our way. It snowed a bit on Saturday and that was a nice change from the haze. A sifted layer of new white powder covered the dreary landscape. The below normal cold remains, however.
What's a grrl to do when her spirits need a lift? Read MAIL from a dear friend and talk to other friends on the phone. This grrl loves her grrlfriends from near and far. Thanks Norma for bringing a lift to my day and to my life, too. (You all do, actually.)
What's a grrl to do when her spirits need a lift? HEAD up...up the canyon! Sunday dawned a little brighter as the storm had slightly lifed the inversion. It had been several weeks since our last trip to SF and we knew the trip was a must if the spirits were to continue on their way up! Our spirits were lifted even further, when in walked Cheryl and Larry, only a few minutes after we started to eat. Talking to pals, breathing the clear, crisp air (that was still warmer than the valley air) and seeing the clear blue sky was a big lift to our spirits.
