It’s not quite as satisfying when you don’t actually buy anything, but still quite fun none the less.
I decided that I needed a little fun time today so after applying for some jobs, I made myself presentable (my shirt has a collar on it…woohoo) and hit the Rideau Centre for some window shopping/Christmas looking. (and by Christmas looking, I mean, seeing if anything caught my eye for gift giving). I tried on shoes too. Oh shoes, how I love thee.
Anyway, I managed to escape after buying just what I knew I needed to get (some cards, lotion…that kind of stuff) and felt remarkably good. Though perhaps it was also because I was leaving with the knowledge that when I got home, I would get to eat the two shrimp salad rolls and chocolate croissant from Richtree. Originally, the plan was to get a coffee after my trip, but when I walked by the salad rolls and chocolate croissants, I realized it would probably be less than a dollar more to get those versus my coffee and I was sold. So now that I have enjoyed that delicious chocolatey goodness, I am satisfied with my day.
A good start to a week…hopefully it will continue to be a good one.
