When you're feeling down in the dumps what do you do? A little retail therapy usually helps me feel better. I don't even have to buy anything although it's LOTS better if I do. Just the process of going into a store, realizing that we have so many choices, and so much available to us, makes me feel better.
If I buy fabric, or books, well then it's just been nirvana. Not the band. 😉
Here's what I did yesterday:
Stopped by my local library to pick up a book... and on the way out there's an area of shelves where you can buy books for pennies, really, nothing over $5 and many for much, much less. I was on my way to the car and I thought I'd just take a peek.
I found these four books plus one other and spent $7 total. I mean two of these are hard covers, and you know the price of hardcover books these days! They were $1 each. The Alexander McCall was 50 cents! I love his books! The one on the top was $2.50 but it's the latest DCI Banks mystery (of PBS fame...)
Here's a very bad phone pic of Sara singing about the Chicago Cubs before she started the interview. The other person on stage is co-emcee Dana Cameron. I am on the lookout for copies of the Emma Fielding novels, one of Dana's multitude of series, she's very prolific!
Sorry for the fuzzy focus. I did get a nice shot of the back of the lady sitting in front of me. Here's one of Dana with Tom Schreck who was giving us the opportunity to learn some boxing moves. He's the author of a number of novels involving boxers, and he also coaches boxing. He pointed out that if you read about someone using a right hook there might be some inaccuracy in the fight description because that could get you ko'd! Who knew he'd let Dana get that close?? LOL!
