Corner paradise

I love Shoppers Drug Mart.

For my international friends, Shoppers is one of the big pharmacy chains here in the Great White North. It is so big, in fact, that they almost compete with Walmart. Not only do they carry pharmacy/beauty products, but also a small selection of groceries, as well special seasonal items.
They also have Optimum points - basically frequent buyer points.

I've been saving my points for a while, and when I walked into Shoppers yesterday, I discovered just what to use them for:
A gravity lounger and a the prettiest little glass table - almost free with my Optimum points!

And, as you can see, the boys are thrilled too. It means we'll all be spending much more time outside, because Valerie will be much more comfortable!
We spent an hour outside tonight, reading... and just enjoying the fresh air!

Apparently it's too early in the morning. I read Opium points. Fortunately, the brain kicked in.

Isn't it nice to be able to spend time outside again?

My Mom used to collect the points; she even had the VISA that got Optimum points. We used her points at Christmas on the "Santa for a senior" program run at our local Shoppers. It was fun loading up on little treats to brighten a Christmas morning for folks at the local nursing homes.

The lounger is very cute. Looks like a perfect place to park it and knit!

Great way to use your points!

Love it! The closest Shoppers to us is half hour drive away. I have one of those cards, but I've only ever used it once or twice. I should check it out, though, they moved from the mall and had a big new store built that opened last year.

That looks comfy! I'm surprised you could get a picture of it without a cat in it, though...
