We went to the bookstore. I do enjoy a good wander through a bookstore and thankfully the rest of my family does as well. I only bought two things.
The other thing I bought was this:
Seriously, how could anyone resist this? I loved Nancy Drew. My best friend and I used to buy the books and trade them back and forth. That picture on the bag is just fantastic. Don't you want to go solve a mystery while wearing a dress and with perfectly done hair? Well, maybe not. I am sure she drove there in her blue convertible. And Ned Nickerson is waiting nearby to save the day. But Nancy doesn't need him. She does it all on her own without ever getting a smudge on her dress or a hair out of place.
I stopped at a little state park on the way home. It was almost empty. The kids are back in school so the swimming pond was deserted. The only people I saw were some grandparents taking their grandchildren for a walk. I don't think they were going to get very far. The little girl just wanted to run back and forth across a little bridge. The park was so peaceful. It is a good place to clear your head. I usually like sitting by the brook and listening to the sound of the water. However, we have had so little rain that the brook has almost completely dried up.
Are there any little things that have brightened your day recently?
