This morning I was a responsible daughter and took my mom to her hair appointment and to the grocery store. This afternoon my dear husband practically ordered me out of the house to take some time for me. He told me he would keep an eye on my mother. The weather was great. . . in the 60's. I confess I stopped at the local antique shop. There were book sales in a couple of booths, and as you can see I purchased three hardbacks. The only other thing I bought was a tiny brown and white cup and saucer ornament that was 75% off . . . 38 cents! Those three hours and bargains on two of my favorite things (books and ornaments) helped to lift my spirits. It's therapeutic, and I highly recommend it.
