It was cold, cold, wet and rainy day today..and I was wearing the thinnest of ballet-slipper-type shoes and the longest jeans I own..not the best combination. I tried to romanticize the weather by pretending I was in England, with varying success. My old residence hall in the rain always reminded me of Hogwarts.
Yesterday was a horrible day, so today I decided to take some time for myself and my mental health. I ate lunch alone at Subway and read “Little House in the Big Woods”; went to the Christian bookstore, but didn’t have my coupon so I didn’t buy anything. I read the first bit of Rob Bell’s new book; has anybody read any of his stuff? It started off pretty good, but I don’t know..Feedback would be much appreciated.
Later in the afternoon I went to one of my favorite antique malls. I was thinking I’d look for little vintage houses for a Christmas village like Alicia’s (I pretty much want to recreate Alicia’s entire house; we have exactly the same taste) and plates for a plate wall like this amazing one. (Would a plate wall like that look dumb on a bedroom wall? I thought at first that it might, but then I saw this (the second picture) and it changed my mind a little bit). Anyway, I didn’t find any plates, but I found lots of other little treasures, including some I’m going back for after I get paid next week. But more on that later; one thing is still in my car and I want to get the others set up well before I share them.
