I had such a great day, so great I want to post about it!
Strolled downtown in the beautiful weather mid-afternoon to get my fringe trimmed, hairdresser told me to come back in a few hours. So wandered downtown leisurely for the first time in months! Found a little specialty grocery store that sells crisps and chocolates from home. Cause great excitement and happiness, even though I was good and didn’t buy any. I know they are there for when I need a treat.
Browsed for ages in the used book store. I worked in a regular book store for 7 years, so love them in general. And I probably shouldn’t say this, but second-hand ones are my favourite for some reason, even though the shelves aren’t organized as nice and they didn’t have the specific books I wanted, it just has such a great feel to it. I spend a bit of time wandering Chapters near my house and in the mall, but the used book store just had some real character in it. It felt like the books wanted you to read them, as opposed to buy them for profit.
So I got a book and sat in the beer garden and read and watched the busy world go buy till I went back to the hairdresser, a little tipsy :p Then I walked to the campus bar and joined a big group of my friends for the quiz night and beer and dinner and lots of laughs. And home to bed nice and early, as I am tired!
It was just one of those perfect days, even though nothing extraordinary happened. Gorgeous weather, lovely settings, great people. Best of all it made me happy and relaxed and forger about my stress and worries :)
