Anyway, it's a lovely, purple, flowery scarf that I bought to go with my purple pantsuit. The white tank top I wear with the pantsuit needed some dressing up, and I decided I'd rather wear a scarf than a necklace. It must have looked pretty good despite the scarf, because I got complimented on it, which was nice. Maybe the scarf didn't look as bad as I thought.
I bought it at Chico's--which is a fabulous store, where the clothing is all color-coordinated to mesh with a person's complexion. Most of my clothes are therefore in blues purples, teals, turquoises, whites, and blacks, since I have a winter complexion. The jewelry and scarves are also color-coordinated to match the clothing, so everything works together very well. If you haven't guessed, I love that store. I shop at the outlet version of it, which is great, because it has sales often. Between clothing from Chico's and Hawaiian shirts from Walmart, I hae a quite colorful collection. *happy sigh*
Books: This week's book is The Way of the Ascetics by Tito Colliander. I love it already. It's sort of like the Cliff Notes version of The Cloud of Unknowing, which is my favorite book of all time. I can imagine wanting to buy a bigger purse so I can fit The Way into it.
I also want to read the works of St. Therese of Lisieux. I found out today that she was only 24 when she died, but she was already a sage who loved simplicity above all things. My kind of woman.
It is weird to think that St. Therese of Liseux and Dog the Bounty Hunter are two people who I greatly admire despite being completely different sorts of people.
