What do you do when you want to give yourself a little treat?

Q: What do you do when you want to give yourself a little treat?

A: I used to go down the street to a salon and get a pedicure as a treat. The salon had massage chairs, so it was very relaxing to sit in the chair for a while and soak my toes. Unfortunately, the salon has been sold, so I don’t go there anymore.

Sometimes I take a trip to an art supply store (the buses in Seattle are not very convenient, so it takes almost an hour to get to this store!) and walk around inside. Sometimes I shop, but sometimes I like to just look at the new products they have for sale.

There is a very special store not far from me. This store accepts donated art supplies, and random things that can be used in other projects. For example, you could buy 1 sample floor tile, a skein of yarn, 1 bottle of oil paint and a broken necklace at this place. It has a strange array of products, but often I get inspired to make something new just from walking around in the store. And if I do decide to buy, the supplies are really cheap, because they were all donated!


Q: 自分のちょっとした楽しみとしてやることは何?

A: 以前は街のサロンに出かけてご褒美にペディキュアをしてもらっていたわ。サロンにはマッサージチェアがあって、しばらくその椅子に座って、つま先を浸しているととてもリラックスできたわ。残念ながらそのサロンは売却されてしまってもう行かなくなってしまったけれど。
