An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau
Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Denim Skirt

 Back to walking laps in the basement today.
13 degrees, snowy and slippery.

This morning we went to Walmart.
We haven't been there in ages.
Went to get lotions and potions and some things that we can't get 
at the usual stores we go too.
It was nice taking our time and just looking around up and down the aisles.

I have been looking for a long denim skirt for the longest time.
Looked in every store I could think of and could never find one I liked
and just kind of forgot about it.
Then today in Walmart there was my skirt marked down to $17.
Tried it on and it fit perfectly.
That sure made my day.

Haven't been working on the latest puzzle all that much
but here's what we've done so far.

Reading Winners by Fredrik Backman now which is the third book in the trilogy
and the book that was chosen for my book club.
I'm glad I read the first 2 books before reading this last one.

That's all I've got for today.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Wednesday

Hi Karen. I love that denim skirt. I have a couple of denim skirts that I wear to church frequently. Church is about the only place I still wear dresses. It's so great that you could get it on sale too! We have warmed up a bit here and it was a balmy 32 degrees this afternoon, so Charly and I went for a walk. I hope you have a good evening. See you again tomorrow.

I love wearing skirts. Your newest one is nice and full so it won't hamper your long steps when you go walking.

Tom said...

...long denim skirts seem to be popular on and off. If it were for denim jeans I wouldn't have a thing to wear.

Ginny Hartzler said...

The skirt is adorable, what a find!!

Vee said...

Cute skirt!

I'd say that puzzle will be a challenge...lots of blue you already have done on shape alone.

Hope you can get back outside to walk soon.

Rose said...

Isn't it wonderful to find something when you least expect it? And then for it to be on sale is an added bonus.

Good for you, finding that skirt. I like it! I have 4 puzles on the shelf waiting to be worked. Hope to get that done soon.

Mari said...

That's a cute skirt, and what a great deal!

Granny Marigold said...

I hope you can walk outside tomorrow but it's wise to be cautious.
Your skirt was a great find and at a good price too.

That jigsaw puzzle looks difficult.

God bless.

I wish I could avoid going to Walmart. Unfortunately there aren't many other choices around here.
I like that skirt.

Walmart is one of a few choices for our shopping. The skirt is cute.
We bought our last puzzle at Walmart. We are expecting a few cold days and than a big warm up. Take care, have a happy day!

Love the skirt you found...denim is such a comfortable, cool, material.

Pom Pom said...

I like your skirt! VERY cute!

Sue said...

Beautiful denim skirt,love the pockets, and price. Karen, finding any skirt with the proper length now days is hard to find.
Wishing you and your DH a very happy anniversary, you are almost catching us.. ~smile~
I admire your commitment to walking so much, I finally got back to a regular routine of walking which was short lived and am now sitting on a couch nursing a sprained ankle which happened this week.

Denim is popular with us. My wife has made handbags from old jeans she finds in charity shops.

Once you have the perimeter it's a go from there.

Woohoo on finding that denim skirt and that it fits. I don't think I've ever done the sky first on a puzzle. Maybe I should change my strategy. :)

Jeanette said...

That is a cute skirt. I have two denim skorts that I wear all summer but I would like to have a longer skirt like that.

Kim said...

Oh, I'm so happy for you finding your elusive denim skirt! Those little thrills make life special, don't they? I haven't been in a Walmart for several years. Might visit one this weekend to see what kind of men's dress shoes they have. Frustrated with the more expensive ones at the department stores not lasting as long. Maybe we'll have better luck with Walmart! 🤣 Happy Weekend!
