Another not-nice day. Have we really hit the I-won't-be-warm-again-until-June time of year? Already? Sigh.
I had to work to convince myself to go out for a break this afternoon. It wasn't raining, it's just that I was cold and I figured I would be colder if I went outside. But. I always find the day so long if I don't get out of the office for a little bit, so out I went.
I took the shortest route that would get me indoors again - straight to Brunswick Square (5 minute walk). From there, I walked all the way through to Market Square (another 5 minutes). I see this happening a lot in the winter. The round trip would give me about 20 minutes.
While there, I decided to have a look around my favourite store in Market Square. Too see if they had anything new and interesting. Which they did. I could not resist. Into the dressing room I went. Inspired by Jaime, I took some photos with my iPhone.
Full disclosure here - they have skinny mirrors in this store. Hey, but maybe combining the skinny mirrors + the camera adds pounds thing = true representation? Probably not, but that's the way my convoluted brain works.
Could these count as my before pictures for the Holiday Challenge? As long as I go back and take the after pics in the same skinny mirrors? I'm sure there will be sales in January
that I would love to shop which would give me a cover story for going into the dressing room and taking updated photos...
Anyway, on to the photographic evidence!
Still in my own clothes, trying out this self-portraiture thing.
And my two favourites looks of what I tried on:
I may have walked out of the store with some purchases. And there you have it – a rare JavaChick sighting on the blog.
I ended up being gone for about 45 minutes. When I got back to the office I had a snack.
We headed home from work around 6 PM. And we’re done until Tuesday! It’s Thanksgiving weekend which means Monday is a holiday and we both took tomorrow off. No big plans, just really looking forward to have four days at home.
We had planned to stop for Thai takeout on the way home but Husband had a craving and we ended up with:
I know. What’s that doing here on a healthy living blog? Once every 2 – 3 months Husband gets a craving and we hit the drive thru. I generally just go ahead and have my favourite thing which is a Spicy Chicken with fries. And of course I shared my chicken with my pal.
I also had 2 Girl Guide cookies that Husband brought home from work.
Did my workout for the day – intervals on the treadmill. Had a good stretch. Now I’m just relaxing, soon to head to bed.
