Happy Veteran’s day. I hope everyone out there celebrated with their favorite veterans even if it was from the safe distance of a zoom call.
I spent the day inside, working today. I thought it was going to be hard to resist taking a walk so I had not one but three post it notes all with reminders of not walking today. Yesterday the blister caused by my new walking shoes ruptured and was rubbed raw. i wanted to give it time to heal up a little.
Turns out, I didn’t need a single one of the post it notes.
I woke up to find it was raining buckets. The rain has been intermintet all day and any attempt at walking would have resulted in a wash out. I’m pretty sure the park is flooded and will remain so through tomorrow. So it looks like i get two days for my blister to heal up. Probably not a bad thing. It does mean that I am going to have to watch my calories though. It’s not too bad though. I’m back in the habit of recording things and our sneaky little candy supply has dwindled to nothing. At least a far as I can tell. My baby doll may have hidden some away, but as I on’t know where it is, I can’t snack on it.
Which is fine with me.
Other than that I am taking frequent breaks to look at the Singles day sales. I have actually completed the bulk of my shopping. There are a few little stocking stuffers to get but not many. So with everyone else taken care of I can start to look at a few things I want. I actually took out my list and saw there is a very long list of things I want to try. So I will have to be selective. So much to try. I think that is really my problem. I want to try everything. even if it is just a sample size of something. Its actually why I love when companies offer samples with sales. I know Peter Thomas Roth does that. Admittedly currently two of the samples I picked up when I ordered the full size of the Skin to Die for Primer are now on my list of things I want to test out in the full size (Those would be the Hungarian Thermal water Mineral Rich Moisturizer and the Pumpkin Enzymatic Face mask. I adored those samples) And yes I realize that is the point of samples. Enticement.
Oh they are so good. PTR and Kerastase are both very good at pulling me in with samples. I picked up the Genesis Serum Fortifiant Hair serum, fell madly in love and was teased by several samples of really good hair masks from various lines. They have hair care for every concern so there are so many products I want to try. Since I’m going out less and heat styling my hair less I am having a season of the grand hair repair extravaganza. Basically attempting to repair a lifetime of abuse over the period of a lock down. i suppose there are worse things to keep me busy.
So no walking, calories in check and strategizing retail during my free moments when i take a break from work. That about sums up my day. Butternut squash soup for dinner. Warm and delicious. Pretty good for a rainy wednesday. Hope you are staying warm and dry wherever you are. And if you are planning your retail attack, I hope you dominate.
