That warmup finally got over to us this weekend. Now the snow is starting to melt, although there is a lot still. One thing when a lot of snow comes at once, people actually get out and clear their walks. When snow comes in dribs and drabs, walks don’t get shoveled. Then they melt and get icy and just are difficult to walk on. After the last bunch of snow, people were out and clearing. Much of our walks were like this:
Amazingly clear – unlike last winter. It was great to get out and do a lot of outdoor walking. I was so tempted to get my bike off the trainer and ride on Sunday, but there was a lot standing water in the shoulder from melt and the bike paths, of course, were not clear at all. So walking it was. It feels so much like spring. It’s hard to believe we are still in February!
Both John and I worked on Saturday and we punched out the last bit of things in my parents’ kitchen on Sunday. It was then our time to relax, have some coffee and do a little shopping! There was a warehouse sale at Peter Harris (one of my favorite shops for clothes). I got a pair of slacks for $2 and this coat for $20!
It’s dry clean only, which made me put the coat back at first, but then I decided I wanted it. Plus John liked it. I don’t know how people take mirror selfies and show most of a whole outfit without looking like a dork.
I think I was impulse shopping a bit. We stopped at Target so I could get some hangers and I came home with a lamp! I needed a lamp for my new desk since it’s in the corner. I’ve been poking around in a lot of places lately and not finding anything. Then stumbled on this lamp, which has 2 of my favorite elements – copper and marble!
Plus it has the pull cord, which is fun. Don’t you love the top of this desk? I’m hoping I can restore the luster of it when I get to work on it…
It’s nice and bright. Now I can see to color in the evenings:
This is why a desk was needed. I sprawl and take up too much space with this stuff for it not have its own home. It can be left just like this, too, without getting in the way.
Monday we are having our Mardi Gras party. A little earlier than usual, but coordinating schedules and all that. So a little meal prep is in order for tonight.
Did you get out and enjoy any good weather this weekend?
