Scottish Phone Booth – I mean Dr. Who

Yesterday…yes, back to yesterday!

We a car ride over to Edinburgh….a nice drive through the country….got dropped off up at the Edinburgh Castle…we did not go all the way in but had a nice look around…Leahna and her  kids Adam and Maricella, also Lauren, Stephen and Margaret….

Headed down the hill to the main street of shops, music, vendors and general cheeriness but……then I started getting way into Souvenir Overload…I did purchase a flower pin made of wool plaid (I do love me some flower pins) – a favorite Scottish brand called “Ness” and a pretty pair of multi colored fingerless mitten/gloves. One more item – a bound journal for Xander and I was done…

I had heard the phrase a few days ago – “buy verbs not nouns” and it was really hitting home that doing is more fun than buying….I think it was Marti, our Executive Dean who shared that – 1000% agreement!!! Buy less, do more.

The rest of the day was “shop avoidance” buoyed up by a great pub meal and good conversation with friends. Yes please!

What Verb can you buy today?

Have a Nothing New Day! ~Kristin
