Guilty pleasures........
I just discovered J. Jill since it opened here a few months ago. I never shopped there before we moved, I'd always pass it by. That being said...........I have turned into a CLOTHES MOLESTER!!! All their sweaters FEEL absolutely yummy (and the colors are cool). Much softer than any chenille throw you could wrap yourself in. My children find extra reasons to touch me when I'm wearing one :).

I also just learned you can have "audioblogs" (might be something I play with in the future). I mention that here because I WISH there was such thing as a "sensoryblog", then you could FEEL exactly what I'm talking about 'cause the picture just don't do it justice. This IS the sweater I have (no, that's not me, I have a head and I'm not that stiff), the color is "vicuna". I never heard that word before, so curious me, I looked it up (I woulda just called it cocoa or coffee bean or BROWN for heaven's sake!). And lo and behold, I learned about an animal I never knew existed before now!! Here's a picture...

Hmmm...shopping has become EDUCATIONAL!!! I wonder if anyone (any husband) will buy that as an excuse for a girl's day out. "Honey, I'm going to go learn with the friends today."

Anonymous? ANONYMOUS??? You're ANYTHING but anonymous. Glad you stopped in. I might like sharing my pensieve with a few beloveds...or those bored out of their minds surfin' blogs... See? I think we could come up with a few more "educational" things to do if we just put our minds to it.

If you did an audio blog... maybe you could get one of those creatures bleating in the background. I'm curious if they bleat or what.

lol learning -- now I have 2 reasons to shop.
I learned that shopping is biblical. you see, Adam & Eve had a really bad day (ate the fruit, sinned, fell, lost their home, eternal curse, etc), & God gave them new clothes. So, when I have a bad day, I tell my dh I need to go get a new outfit :) Now, I can use the "learning" line, too.
Or, research :)

Married to my college sweet-heart :)...three GREAT kids I'm not selling to the circus today...I LOVE to laugh (& smile often)...love to read & cook, hate to shop (unless the store is very small and doesn't leave me dazed and confused). I'm scared of flying so although I'd like to travel more, I don't.

I've been pleasantly surprised to find life in my 40s to be an amazing time of transformation & discovery--of self, others, creation and the Creator.

Here's a partial explanation for my Blog title. I think it'd be cool if they really existed.

A Pensieve is a stone basin.... [One] can extract his or her own memories and place them in the Pensieve, especially to relieve the mind when it becomes too flooded with information. Anyone can examine the memories in the Pensieve, which also allows viewers to fully immerse themselves in the memories stored within...

A Pensieve first appears in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire...
