I had two back to back doctor's appointments this morning, so I decided to treat myself to a little wander afterwards. I was disappointed that I had forgotten my camera, but that's okay. I visited my favorite local bookstore and ate lunch in their little cafe, while reading one of the new books I bought, No Running in the House Without a Helmet, by Melissa Fay Greene, the author of Praying for Sheetrock. It's a book about her family's experience of adopting five children, and as you would expect if you've read her work, it's a great read. I had a delicious lunch of tuna fish salad with Craisins and enjoyed the solitude. I even kept the radio off in the car as I ran my few errands, just listening to the silence. I must be saving up that sound in preparation for the upcoming school year, as silence is in short supply in the high school environment.
I'm not photo-less though, since Steve and I took a morning walk yesterday.
