Still pretty in it's own way. But let me tell you it put us smack into the biggest lightening rain storm I've ever been in. On the way home. On the highway. Full of semi's and other traffic. Who will not slow down! It rained so hard at one point we could not see the big truck in front of us. The windsheild wipers couldn't go fast enough. They were like some kind of pendulum on steroids. Did people slow down at all? No way. They were still driving around 120 kms (74.5 miles per hour). So no amusement park rides but 2 scarey rides, all the same, in one day.
Needless to say, the next day I
craved, desired, had to have shopping therapy somewhere nice and safe. So off to the big malls we go. First downtown, where they have a huge shopping centers all connected up by walkways over the city streets. We got to relax and walk through a thoroughly beautiful peaceful garden located on the roof of the centre. 2.5 acres of beautiful, lush flora and fauna, fountains, birds, turtles, fish, lots of places to sit and relax. And it's free to walk through. Ahh, starting to feel better already.
In said shopping center is lots of designer stores, because it caters to all the big oil money folk and I came away with a great summer jacket at a steal of a deal. Regular $159.99. I paid $45.00. Yay! And finally the cute little number that totally brought my blood pressure down from the drive the day before? Voila.
Chocolate brown and red leather with brown plaid interior. Yes, my clothes may scream middle aged mom, but my purse is too cute! Destressing complete.
