an unexpected guest (haiga)
pile of clothes await
A new home
nagging cold impedes
still so much to do
pile of clothes await
pain of choosing
A new home
bathing suit and sunscreen
Mounted on wheels

I have not been writing for quite some time. I find it more difficult writing on my iPad even if I purchased a few keyboards. It is just not the same as a laptop. I wanted to purchase a Mac Air but I have spent so much lately. My trip to Mexico for my son’s wedding, clothes and wedding gift…so I thought since my 8 yr old laptop died, I just wanted a very light weight and inexpensive, so I bought a Chromebook Asus. Perfect…hardly any memory at the price I paid but I don’t need any since I save everything on my cloud .
I am quite pleased with this purchase among many other clothing purchases I have made all ON SALE! My mother educated me well on sales [chuckles] I could not help but think of her especially when I was shopping at Taylors which was one of her favourite stores. There are only 5 in Quebec…four on the South Shore and one in Granby, in the Eastern Townships. I went across the street to the Mall to get one dress for the brief wedding ceremony performed at Fort Chambly outside by a Notary because the legal marriage cannot be done in Mexico. It was just the immediate family and so lovey at the Fort on a glorious sunny day and the pictures of the rapids made it even more special. My children were raised in Chambly so it made it even more special they they chose this spot.
So back to my shopping. I went downtown in Montreal two weeks ago and found some tops and pants but I was not really impressed. I knew there were a few items at Taylors I wanted but found it too expensive. Already one dress was above my usual spending budget. Anyway I decided to go the first Taylors that is in Saint Lambert. Little did I know that the summer sales had begun!!! So I purchased two outfits and one is definitely the dress I will be wearing at the wedding ceremony in Mexico,
This heat has not been easy this past week though. In fact, our offices’ AC was not functioning properly and working at 30C is not easy especially since we work on a crisis line…comfort is certainly appreciated. Even more appreciated was that the supervisors understood and management shut down the offices in Montreal for two days so our other centres had to pick up the slack. I felt bad for them though.
Today I woke up nauseous from a migraine and fighting a head cold. It took a few hours before the migraine meds kicked in and I walked to the drug store to pick up some things for my trip. I sure hope I don’t have a problem with the food…I know, I know, I heard not to drink the water and peel fruits before eating. I had food poisoning three weeks and my tummy is still sensitive. All my meals have been based on white rice or quinoa. Good think I love rice!
I played around with my laptop when I got back to download a few apps and the time just flew. By nine o’clock, I finally had sup’, which was my first meal of the day. (I don’t eat much when I have a headache). I do prefer eating later though, so I don’t much all evening…well, not as much.[she chuckles at her own joke!]
And that is what I have to say in one stream of consciousness for this week’s prompt at Linda Hill’s Saturday’s Stream of Consciousness which is “sup”.
