Looking for...

It really does feel like I've been dragging stuff around in my prospecting quest.

DD#1 and I had a marvelous time hunting up the things she had listed on her to-do list!  It took a bit to get her to take her clothes off, ahem; but once we got her into that change room the sales gal and I undated her with all kinds of options and now she has a pretty exciting wardrobe!

I suspect her favourite outfit was the Canada sweat shirt.  She is dressed for Canada Day and all our birthday celebrations!

We got all that done the morning/day I flew in.  My fitbit clocked 8 miles!  I was wonked but pleased.

Early next morning we checked her in for day surgery on her sinuses.  Among other things, she cannot breath through her nose nor taste nor smell.    When they wheeled her back I was sure we needed some kind of red alert but she is a trooper and 2 hours later I got her back to the hotel and we both collapsed!

We spent a quiet day in the room, me running room service (Yay for Timmies!)  and Laura trying to get comfortable.

Next morning we headed off to her home for the next week.  She shouldn't lift so I'm the packie! Maybe we shouldn't have shopped so much!!!   Only problem was I slipped on some water in the grocery store aisle getting groceries for the week and my ankle knew it!   So we both shared the couch and watched old movies!

Back to Edmonton for her follow up and it was a very rainy, miserable trip.  My brother and sister in law greeted us with candles as trees were down and power was out!

My plane flew out the next evening so we thought to kill some time with a few odds and ends at the BIG mall.   I didn't know I needed Royal Dalton dishes.  I thought I was safe in there while she added to her tea cup collection.  LUV!!!

Speaking of tea...

Expensive chocolate is wasted on the grand kiddies.  So I got expensive cookies.  lol

I did strike some gold in my shopping.  I was looking for purses and not shown is my lovely neutral backpack purse.  My dishes are awaiting a new kitchen which hasn't quite arrived yet as the Rooster didn't get the place we were hoping for so we are still prospecting.  Hopefully there is more gold ' in them thar hills!'.

In the mean time we'll keep looking!

Such activity! My head is spinning! Glad you got to enjoy some shopping before your dear daughter had her surgery and you hurt your ankle. Trusting both are healing well! Hugs!

How is your daughter? Too bad about the house but "your new home" is out there waiting for you to find it.

It sounds like you had a great trip and were a true blessing to your daughter. I'm sorry that your house fell thru. I know how disappointing that can be!!!

I am exhausted with all you accomplished my dear. Healing Energy for your daughter and your ankle. Love you newly acquired wardrobe pieces. I like to use my backpack purses when doing major Big Box shopping to keep my hands free. I hope you get to relax and recharge now...<3
