Saturday was a lazy, lazy, lazy day. I mean lazy! Yvan was sick with a cold all last week so he slept most of the day Saturday. I stayed in my p.j.'s watching movies etc. until about 3 p.m.
Yvan had been bugging me to make our favourite whole wheat chocolate chip cookies - don't scoff -they are delicious and you would never, ever know they were whole wheat.
Anyways, at about 3p.m. I decided to shower and go to the grocery store. So, after I showered and had dried my hair I declared it a "No Make-up Day" with the exception of a little under eye make-up - cover up the dark circles and bags ya know! No make-up day isn't hard because I only wear mascara and blush!
My sister-in-law called and asked if I wanted to go with a walk with her and her dogs and since Leroy was in need of a walk I figured why not.
So, off we went for a walk! After the walk, I figured I better get to the grocery store and get the goodies needed for the cookies.
I hopped into the car and off I went to the local Sobey's. I wandered around the store taking my time, smiling at people, etc. - I love grocery shopping! Now I am a regular at this Sobey's and while I am not on a first name basis with the cashiers - I recognize them and vice versa. There is one lady in particular that I often try to get in her line-up because she is friendly and efficient.
This day I was lucky - she was working and didn't have anyone at her till. So, we went thru our routine of chatting etc while the groceries were being rang thru. She asked my if I wanted to buy a reusable shopping bag - "why yes of course I do", I said. "What color would you like?" she asked in return...we had a lengthy discussion (time permitting of course) on the switch from plastic to reusable and plastic vs. reusable vs. paper. We discussed how much you could fit in the bag etc, etc. We had a face-to-face conversation - with only the counter between us. (You will understand the significance of this in a moment.)
When I got home with groceries, Yvan got up and was sitting on the other side of the island from me as I was unpacking the food stuff. Here is our conversation:
Yvan - "you didn't go out like that did you"
Me (offended) - "um, ya, why?"
Yvan (cheekily) - "no, seriously! you didn't go out like that right"
Me (a little peeved)- "of course I did - there is nothing wrong with how I look today"
Yvan (laughing) - "you went out with that stuff under your eyes like that?" " those make-up dots?"
Me (mortified) - "what make-up dots!!!???"
Yvan (roaring) - "the ones under your eyes, you know, two under each eye."
Me (groaning) - "ooooooh noooooo", "oh no, I did, I totally did!" "I went for a walk with Danielle and then went to Sobey's." "no wonder all those people where giving me funny smiles in the grocery store" "Why didn't someone say something or motion or something."
Yvan and I laughed and laughed. I mean I couldn't even be embarrassed about it. To be fair to Danielle, I had my sunglasses on while we were walking so she wouldn't have seen it. But the cashier lady - I mean come on - she could have said something - we have a relationship ya know - a common love of groceries - not to mention that you should always look out for a sister friend!
So, in order for all to have a laugh at my expense!! Here are a couple of re-enactment snaps of me with the dreaded under eye make-up!
I am seriously losing my mind, this adoption has me losing my mind!!!
Happy Monday :)
