I had such a fun day today!I love my days off from my wage earning job. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate my career and especially love it when people get better and tell me how much I helped them. That is a grand prize of satisfaction for a job well done! And that DID happen this week too~!
All the more reason to treat myself on my days off, right? RIGHT!!!So today I did. First I enjoyed a morning at home...swifting my new floors (which was really fun...I am amazed anew at how pretty they look!) Have you ever been obsessed by floors? It's crazy I know, but a wonderful kind of CRAZY~! Then I gathered my things needed to go run errands. First to the post office to mail Kaeli's birthday gift [the fabric pocket book] (and a few other parcels)...(This is NOT Kaeli) Then to the library where I picked up my art that has been hanging there the past several months! I got LOTS OF Positive FEEDBACK on how it was appreciated, oohed and ahhed over by patrons, etc. Photos of it taken by cell phone camera etc.
That feedback is worth all the tea in China!I was very close to the thrift store so I had to go in. I hadn't been other than to drop things off for donations in a very long time. I got some FREE BOOKS, lots of tissue paper for fabric art making; and other odds and ends for crafting!
And finally I went to Michael's for art supplies for ART AND SOUL. I had some coupons. I LOVE Michael's COUPONS!
I got a $20 art journal for $10.99! (45% off) And I got Acrylic Matte at 40% off! And acrylic paints were only 77 cents instead of $1.39 or more~~~ I got some other cute inexpensive doo-dads for my treasure pocket books! I am saving my list of things I need for A & S for other days with other coupons! I am a smart shopper! LOL
And THEN...I took myself out for Espresso Gelato! (see first photo) ANd it was GOOD!!!!!!
My energy level was sky high long before I ate it. And now I am REALLY FLYING!
I have three orders for my treasure pocket books so will be busy sewing all weekend long!!!!!!! (the little kid photos are old photos of a fun ice cream day with them...all the photos just show my jazzed, happy, elated state of being!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
