Today my friend, Shelly, and I went on a long overdue outing. We did some early Christmas shopping then she took me to Chili's for a late birthday lunch.
We were ecstatic to find that the dollar shop had everything marked down to 60 cents (it takes so little to amuse!) and I loved looking at all the pretty new yarn at the craft stores.
At Hobby Lobby we discovered all kinds of cute snowmen that we're absolutely positive we can make ourselves. Of course, I had to snap a photo so we could remember what one of them looked like (is that permissible?!)
Being with her was just what the doctor ordered. It's been a very long and exhausting week and I really needed some time with someone who "gets me". We talked and laughed and recharged our batteries. It felt good just to be "me" for a little while.
I think I may even be ready for Monday...
