I don't have any exciting stories to share today. Just a few pics of the living room. It was a gorgeous day today. Yesterday was stressful. I won't get too long winded but let's just say a good chunk of it involved a long wait at the vet with an antsy toddler and dog. In the end she (our lab) was found to be totally healthy thank goodness. Anyways, my point is that I decided to treat myself to some retail therapy today to recover. I only spent a few bucks I swear...
Today was all about driving to my favorite cottage antique stores. Places where I park under a big oak tree. Away from traffic and the hustle and bustle of city. Places where I have the place almost to myself, and I know the owners, and consider them friends. The shops feel homey. They have a unique "grandma's house" smell. My daughter plays with the cat laying in a patch of sunshine on an old chair while I stroll from room to room. I miss my mom because I feel like she should be standing right behind me so I can turn around and show her this neat old postcard I found.
Can't you just feel the blood pressure dropping as you read this?
Ahhhh. I walk on to the kitchen in the cottage.
And then I see that ironstone pitcher I've always wanted! And the blood pressure shoots back up! In a good way. : )
*sidenote..sofa cushions upturned to keep said lab off.
Today was a great day.
