Yesterday, being sunny and relatively warm, seemed as fine a day as any for a good ol’ fashioned 100% thrifty floral mish-mash of an outfit. A series of storms are reportedly headed our way and beginning this weekend there is rain forcasted for about the next 10 days straight. So why not pretend it's spring before there's no denying that winter isn't going anywhere anytime soon!
Clover and I went for a lovely walk downtown stopping off at the bookstore. I flipped through the latest issue of Selvedge (silently oohing and ahhing over the photos in the article about this beautiful Swedish clothing line) while we hung out in the children’s section.
Clover got together a collection of stuffed animals, or “animal friends” as she calls them to gather around her while playing with the noisy books, the ones with buttons that result in obnoxious noises and/or songs, the ones that mysteriously disappear a week or so after your child receives one as a gift, kidding. Or am I?
Also, stopped off at the library to pick up this book. It's my next book club read. It's a new book club and unfortunately we all found our first book disappointing to say the least. Breath, Eyes, Memory looks promising though, not to mention timely with the heartbreaking reality that the people of Haiti are facing right now.
