This weekend my sister dragged me to the store with her. Neither of us are really big shoppers (don’t disown me, Liz), but it is a good way for us to visit and be productive. She had a list of things she needed, but I did not. I still managed to do some damage. Home Goods-two huge purple bottles to fill an awkward space above the fireplace. Target-a new duvet cover that is not really at all my typical style (it has flowers for god’s sake!), but I love it and needed a change. It fits much better with the feel of my new bedroom. Michael’s-3 frames that would have been on the list if I had made one, and a completely impulsive purchase of a poster (and frame). It just spoke to me and I was unable to put it back (and my sister wouldn’t let me). When I got home I looked it up and got the details…”The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt. Evidently, it is a famous painting, but I don’t know if I had seen it before. Online, the woman is clearly a redhead, but in the store her hair looked brown to me. Nevertheless, I have it and I like it!
I also did a somewhat bravish thing related to the phrase in my heading “figure out what I want so I can figure out how to get there.” I sent an email that will change the tenor of a relationship that is very important to me. I’m not being coy, but the details are not for publication right now (and may never be). I just know that I feel good about what I did even though I am not really sure that I will like the outcome.
So, who bought what recently? Who did something out of context? Who got a purple tattoo? What are you doing this weekend?
