Running Away Was My Only Choice

What does a gal do after a very long week
and she needs to run away?


She books hubby and herself into the
Temple Gardens Mineral Spa in Moose Jaw, Sask

There's nothing like sitting in the 30c (102F) outside mineral pool
when the temperature is -28c (-18F) outside.


The she does a little retail therapy.
Although not a 'shoe' girl,
I couldn't resist these suede and leather boots
that were 50% off!
Truly they were calling my name.

And how about treating yourself to a new weighted hula-hoop
since your old one has seen better days.



Yup...that's what this girl did this weekend!


Thank you for all your concerns and kind words.
Not to worry - this girl will get back on track soon.

It's going to be another busy week
(3 days of business travel)
but I will be spending my
hotel evenings catching up with you all!


Love to you all!

Oh, that sounds wonderful! Try to retain those good feelings when you return to the routine. I know it is hard, but try...it helps.

I hope you have a better week ahead!

Willow said...

Good for you ! Love those boots , um I won't ask about the hoola hoop ~ unless your telling of course lol

Dearest Catherine,
That was lovely! Can't believe it is -28°C already. We find it COLD tonight with 'only' -4°C!
For such climate your boots are super and I love your weighted hula-hoop. You make me long for using mine again, as soon as the bad Hematoma in my belly has completely dissolved...
Hugs to you,
Mariette

If I could run away to something so wonderful, I would too! That was a great idea Catherine and so was buying those boots! Safe travels this week!

I'm in love with those boots, practical, and pretty whooooo whooo!

And the hula hoop sounds fun, just think of the work out it will get after a mug cake.

That spa looks like a wonderful place to soak, both in the daytime and at night with stars shining. Your boots are cute and different looking.

That retail therapy sounds like an excellent idea.

Ann said...

that's my kind of running away. I don't think we have a spa like that around here though.
I'll just have to go for the shopping.
I just saw one of those hula hoops the other day when I was out shopping and I thought about buying one

Now that "therapy" was better than any to be found in a professional's office. :-)

I think you were really left with few choices and were forced to take extreme measures. Well done. *grin*

Stay safe on the roads this week.
