I love the smell of a mall in the morning

Friday, April 20th, 2012

We had our last MN Yarn Shop Hop meeting this morning.  Winners were chosen!  More on that later.

 

Anyway, I was out and about.  I don’t get out and about much anymore.  I decided to stop by Rosedale Mall to look for a dress.  We have a lot of weddings coming up this summer and I wanted something new.  I was early and so I had to sit and wait for 20 minutes before Macy’s opened.
.
I don’t wait well.  I am not super patient.
.
I didn’t have knitting with me which is a bummer, cause I could have knit a good inch of my April Sweater which is looking cute if I do say so myself.

I also had just enough time to take the photo below before my phone died.  (By the way, if anyone has a tip about why my Iphone battery is draining from full in just under 30 minutes I would love to hear).

the mall in the morning

.
So, with nothing to do but sit.  I sat.
.
I don’t think I have sat down, without knitting or a cell phone, or a computer, or a book, or a kid next to me in years.  I venture a guess that you are the same.
.
I noticed a few things…
.
1.  There are a lot of mall walkers.  People are still walking in malls.  Men, women, young, old, fast, slow.  Yep, they are walking.
2.  The mall plays pretty good music.  Not muzak, but music.  Carol King and the like.
3.  My feet hurt even when I am sitting down.  I have retailers feet now.
4.  I slouch.  I can’t sit up straight even when I try.  I always end up sliding down into the slouch.  Might be why this happened?
5.  Fingernail polish is easy to pick off.
.
That is all.  It is a good thing I have a day job.
.
Because I am sure you were wondering…I bought a coral colored pencil skirt,  a white tank and blue sweater on sale at J Crew.  It’s cute.  It was worth the wait.  I am sure I will be just as cute in mine as this girl is in hers…
