You know how some days are almost perfect? Tuesday was one of those days.
I started the day working on an etsy order and got it done and packaged while having my coffee.
Then I hunted down my walking shoes and gym clothes, and headed to Edgewater Park for a walk. It was a cool and breezy day, and the lake was choppy and the sound of waves washed out all of the typical city noises.
Then we stopped at Half Price Books to drop off boxes of cookbooks that I never used and were cluttering up my cabinet. And I actually got a decent amount of money which I spent on these....
Herbs! Basil, Thyme, Parsley and Pineapple Sage. I had never seen pineapple sage before. If you rub the leaves between your fingers, it smells just like pineapple. I also got some verbena. Couldn't resist something called Cotton Candy Mix!
We found the most awesome garden center that has almost every plant you can think of. Their pre-made planters were amazing, and the best part? Big band music playing! For me, that is the equivalent of every day Christmas music. And it makes me happy!! It was a blissful hour of looking at pretty flowers. listening to happy music, hearing birds chirping and water fountains bubbling.
I came home and put on a pot of Starbucks coffee. It is my bi-weekly splurge to pick up a bag of their coffee. YUM!
I am off to plant my herbs and finish my coffee. I hope that all of you have a day like Tuesday!!
