I got up this morning and went to work for half a day. The donuts were a stunning success (duh). I spent over an hour on the phone with an individual who has been having a terrible week and then and hour and a half in meetings.
Not much else got done. The morning flew by and Pk and I met at the train station at 12:45. We were off on our adventure.
I don't know if I've told you how much I like dansko shoes. They are so well made and they're comfortable to my back and legs. Pk heard that there was an outlet store and suggested I might like some new shoes for my birthday.
Now, I don't know what you think of when you hear "outlet store" but I don't think of a store that looks like this
I found three pairs, two pair of suede clog style (one black and one a wine color) and a pair of mary jane style with straps.
They're beautiful. And about half of what they cost in the store. I got three pairs of shoes for less than what two pairs would have cost in the retail stores.
We got home and had some dinner and then Pk took me to the electronic store to replace my mp3 player. My old one still works but after 3 years of hard usage, the battery doesn't hold a charge like it used to. I can still get a few hours out of it on a charge but those bars drop off pretty quick.
I spent tonight loading some of my favorite music and downloading some books from the library. I can't transfer the last Song of Ice and Fire book because technically it's expired. I'll have to listen to it on the old player. No real problem.
And it looks like Mr. Martin is writing at least 2 more in his series so it will be at least 7 books. I hope he doesn't make it one of those endless sagas. I'd like things to come to a head and then there to be an ending. I'm enjoying them but I can't see myself listening to them forever.
So, that's the photos for today. 54 years ago today I was born. I have a good life. I am so very grateful for it and for all the people in it.
See you tomorrow with a photo of cake! (Pk told the waitress at the diner that it was my birthday and she brought me a huge piece of strawberry shortcake. I shared it with Elanor)
