Good afternoon my darlings. Today is going to be a short post. I started my day with a nice long walk, which proved quite fortuitous as I doubt I will get the chance for an afternoon one. So I at least have my calories on track. I thought today was going to be a nice and quiet day. I had a lot of work to do, but after Monday craziness I thought I would be okay to do it.
Apparently I was wrong.
Agnes’s daughter dropped by with a plate of cookies. Agnes is my neighbor with Alzheimer’s. Her daughter wanted to thank me for helping out when Agnes goes wandering. She has done that only a couple of times this year. I end up calling her kids and then having strange conversations with her in the back yard. I actually kind of enjoy the conversations. They are completely bonkers and I can see how a constant stream would wear on a person, but Agnes just doesn’t leave the house much anymore so for me they are only occasional things.
But now I have a nice plate of sugar cookies.
I also have some chocolate fudge that My babydoll is going to love. It was from another neighbor. We looked after their dog when they had to deal with a family emergency one weekend.
I thought that was very nice. Although the polite conversations took a bit of time. I then got to watch dueling delivery vehicles in the neighborhood. Our neighborhood does not have very wide streets so when a FedEx or UPS vehicle goes down the street it drives down the center of the lane and pretty much takes up the whole street. We had FedEx, UPS, DHL and a garbage truck all trying to use the same set of streets at the same time. It was interesting to watch everyone negotiate for space. There was a lot of backing up, parking and walking on the part of the drivers. I actually got several packages today as things have started to arrive. For me next week is going to be the big delivery week.
I thought In the absence of makeup today I’d share a few of the goodies that arrived.
The glasses are not a new arrival, they are fairly recent though. They are my reading glasses from ThinOptics. I absolutely adore them actually. I just took them off when I took the picture and they were in the frame. Thinoptics is still having a sale though if you ae interested (35% off sitewide).
The box is the Time Revolution essence from Missha, they too are having a sale (40% off sitewide with an extra 20% for today’s miracle deal if you find anything interesting about this brand, today is probably your best day to go for it. The miracle deal changes daily so that extra 20% is just for today.) and so I stocked up on my favorite essence. This is the one I am holding back for my use once i finish my open essence (which will be a while) the second bottle I snuck into the medicine cabinet for my baby doll to use. I know it isn’t medicine but if it is there he will use it to soothe wind and sunburned skin. If it is with my skincare he won’t. Somehow it becomes something else when it with my skincare. He will use it from the medicine cabinet though, so I put a bottle there.
I have finally worked my way through a large chunk of my sample body lotion collection. Okay i also added several to stockings this year as well. So I ordered a full size of the Korres Body Butter. I really love the formula. I also like that it has the green scent of the fig tree rather than the jammy fruitiness of the actual figs. Sometimes with sweet smelling body lotion it makes me feel sticky just by the scent. This one doesn’t. It just gives me soft skin. Plus it is also nice to have a full sized body lotion again. I was using so many sample tubes just to use them up that I had a different body lotion every other shower. It’s nice to be able to just stick with one for a while.
The timer I got from Amazon, mostly because I needed a new timer. I do timed writings every morning and my old chicken timer was starting to stick. So now I have anew one which I think is quite adorable.
And finally in today’s collection of randomly arriving packages I have a Sparitual Gold nail polish. I really like sparitual nail polish, and quite a few of them are on sale at the moment. I also picked up a dry body brush from them that is quite excellent. Its about a year old now and still looks and works fabulously. this nail polish is a gold top coat that you can put over other colors. I have a couple of them but the ones I have are all silver based and I wanted one in gold for the holidays. I’m going to put it over a dark green for Christmas and I’m thinking about over a dark blue for New Years. I haven’t decided on that one yet. But there is still plenty of time.
And speaking of time, I can feel it slipping away from me. So it is back to work for me. with luck tomorrow life will be back to an regular work day. One can dream right?
