Yesterday after several splendid hours with friends I made two stops on my way home. At Barnes & Noble I splurged and bought two books. Although I hate to pay full price, this time I did. It was truly hard to leave the second store because I could look around at craft and art supplies all day. Lots of gardening decor to see slowed me down, too. The lady in front of me at the checkout offered me two 40% off coupons to use. How nice was that! I paid for my art supplies and headed home. I felt like jumping for joy. This was my kind of day... treasured friends, inspiring books, and art materials. Too bad there wasn't enough time for antiquing and treasure hunting, too.
