I have been accused of "nesting"

Well, you see, I had to go shopping to get new running shoes (my old ones are getting to the stage that enough of the internal support has died that they begining to be painful). Nicole and Perrin had nothing to do tonight, so they came along for some window shopping.

We went to Carindale shopping centre, and after we had some dinner (Chinese), and checking out Granny May's (Perrin didn't know what they were) we went our separate ways. I went and got shoes (on special too, regular price $200, down to $159), and they went window shopping.

After getting said shoes, I also window shopped.

We all ended meeting up again in Lincraft, where we proceded to buy things that we weren'y originally intending to. They bought two hat boxes, and some stuff to decorate them, and Perrin bought a snake draft-stopper (really cute).

And I bought about $90 of material that Nicole is going to make into curtains for the living room. Mostly they are going to be calico, but with a grey/blue strip through the middle of them. I also bought a small stainless steel shelving unit for the bathroom, but we get it home and it won't fit, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it.

I also was thinking of buying a rug for the front room (regular price $448, down to $195) but the rug shop was closed by the time we got back, which means I'll probably get it on Saturday.

I have also bought copies of two of the Roborally expansions, Crash and Burn and Radioactive. Now all I need to do is find a copy of the basic set!

Accused???!!??
I'd say it was more of an outright statement

:-p

It's good to see you happy! :-)

(and remember to wash the fabric before sewing... calico's a b!tch at shrinking...)

Possibly accursed, I'm not sure.

As for washing the fabric, that's Nicole's area of expertise. She's making the things, I'm just putting in my order for what I want.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
