Cool Stuff!


It's not my birthday.

It feels like it though.  

Today, the Husband and I drove over to Freedom to buy food for Molly the Cat. Our task was done quicker than we estimated, so we headed down the road to Watsonville to visit the art store and bookshop before lunch.

I'd only planned to buy a couple of new colored pencils at Wild Rose's Artists' Supplies and Custom Framing, but you know how it goes. I checked out the shop's art paper. Marbled paper. Oooooh. Wavy, corrugated paper. Gotta have that. Small rectangle-shaped suede paper. 25 cents, sold! My plan is to make masks. Yup.

At Crossroads Books, I bought a mystery called Shaking in Her Flip-Flops. Can't go wrong with a title like that.  Another neat thing about the book is that it's written by Joyce Oroz, an author who lives in nearby Aromas. The Husband and I also decided to purchase a copy of The 2016 Farmer's Almanac. That's always fun reading.

To top off getting all this cool stuff, we found a new yummy place for lunch—Imura Japanese Restaurant. Not only does it serve delightful sushi but awesomilicious Korean dishes. I've been missing Korean food.

So, you see, buying cool stuff and eating Korean food have me feeling like it's my birthday. Happy smiles all around.

    1. I find myself talking out loud about how I might do something. People around me think I'm talking to them so give me advice. I like that.

  3. I am such a sucker for art stores, book stores, and hardware stores. Unless I'm there for a specific thing (and it's written down in a list) I have to put my hands in my pocketses and walk away, quickly.

    1. Oh, gosh, yes, the hardware store is another one. The Husband and I purposely go down the wrong aisles.

    1. It was. Haven't had a chance to play with the papers yet. I'm enjoying my new pencils though.
