Mother and I went to Bismarck today to do some shopping... There were things we needed to get for the farm; groceries to buy; and parts to pick up for Dad's semi, but then we had a couple hours to run to different thrift stores and western stores to look for a cowgirl hat and some lace-up boots for me. I happily found a nice pair of boots at one of the first thrift stores we went in and they were just my size and the color I wanted!!!
However, no matter how many hats we looked at, nothing seemed quite right. There were some really nice ones at the RCC western store, but they were a bit beyond my price range. :) Also, one of Mother's clients kindly offered me her hat, but it wasn't quite the right color. I'm glad that I at least found out my hat size now so I can check on-line for some hats... (Prayers for finding the "Perfect" one would be much appreciated!)
It was nice to just have a day together with Mother... I still so much prefer country life to that in the city though and don't wish to go wandering away from home too often!
