Mental Health Day....

I woke up to a cold, windy, rainy day.... My foot was hurting, my legs were hurting, my two fingers that I cut were hurtin.... and I just plumb didn't feel like going in and shelving library books today. So I went shopping instead in my favorite little town of Occoquan! Here are some of the treasures I brought home - the "sister" framed needlework will be a gift for my sister; the picture of the little boy pulling the sled with the cat on it went over my bed. I've wanted this picture for the longest time. Today it was on sale (a little bit anyway), so I splurged! The alphabet placque went in my downtairs powder room. I adore samplers with alphabets on them, so this placque was right up my alley! After leaving the little town of shops, I ran over to the needlework shop and was very very bad.... or very very good - depends on how you want to look at it - LOL!

Rainy Monday Smiles...

Driving into work this morning, I saw two geese on the strip of grass on the side of the road.... one was sitting, one was laying down.... they were smack dab in front of the bus stop! Cracked me up!

A little girl today at the library (where I work) running into the children's section - yelling back at her Dad - come on come on COME ON - books books BOOKS!!! Too cute....

What made you smile today?
