Lovely day yesterday. Was out and about enjoying it. No winter bundle up. Spent time w/ DS on our deck and I was looking forward to enjoy my cuppa there this morning, but -- oh, well.
Snow Friday? Are you serious, Kar? Re your bras. Since my weight loss, I needed new ones as well. So I ordered 3 on line. My favorite bra, I have worn for years, but a band size smaller. Of the three only one fit perfectly. The band on the other two was not to measurement. One was too small, the other too large (even using the measuring tape). So they are both going back, and I will keep returning and exchange them, until I get 3 that is just right. It is a real pain. The problem, as I see it, is that a lot of our clothing these days is made overseas or South America, where there is no quality control. They just crank them out with cheap labor. DH had similar problem with a pair of designer jeans. He tried on one pair, that fit him perfectly. Then picked up a second pair from the shelf to take home. Same model, size and length. Would you believe it, they were 32 inches long instead of 30? Marked wrongly. Fortunately I could just shorten them, so not much harm done. But the lesson learned is, that these days one has to try everything on, before buying.
November, I am always so pleased to hear, when someone nurses. Makes me smile. But don't be surprised, if you can't wear your old bras. You will most likely need a larger cup.
I am sure you must be looking forward to Lily and family's visit on Sunday, tt. My hips and knee felt fine yesterday, but I am aching this morning. What about you? Feeling better. The weather change has definitely something to do with it. Hoping the warm weather in TX will do them good.
Not much on the docket for today, except for getting the house ready to go away. And that means a good watering for all my house plants. And setting up watering systems for the ones that can't live for 10 days. DH will be back in a couple of days, but he kills them by over watering them. So I rather, he doesn't touch them. And then of course, I have to pack.
Oh, and this I want to mention. If anyone is looking for roses for their garden this year, Costco has the Knock-Out-Roses for only $13 each. They sell for $25 - 30 at the nurseries. DS and I picked up 5 yesterday. Beautiful stock. Nice and healthy in large pots. We can't plant them right now, but I know, they would be gone, when I get back. I will leave them in my mudroom, that has a skylight and they will get plenty of light and hopefully sun there.
Have a good day everyone.
