Wednesday Women IV

Today's lunch was with Tammy from Texas. Sally and I met her at a St. Paul coffee shop. Tammy and her son are here on vacation. What a nice young guy (and isn't he cute?)! He took this photo. I wish he would have turned off the "make them look old and fat" button... why did he use that special effect? We all wondered.

Tammy gave each of us some Texas fabrics. Wasn't that nice?

After lunch we went downstairs to a local bookstore, Common Good Books, owned by Garrison Keillor. No GK sightings today, but we all found some books to buy. Upon leaving the store, Sally was muttering.. "it's like taking an alcoholic into a bar." LOL. Exactly.

I bought this book. I don't usually buy books like this, but lately I've been more receptive to this kind of thing. I want to open myself up to "awakened living." (In case you can't read the subtitle, it's "Daily Reflections for Awakened Living.")

What I'm thankful for:
1) books
2) friends
3) beautiful summer days! (Tammy and her son are basking in the "cold" they feel here in MN after the 100's of Texas)
4) flowers
5) family

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, used bookstores in the cities. Ahhhh, if I only lived closer I would be completely broke :)

Looked with great envy at the pic. Tammy came to a retreat (did you and Sally come to that one, I'm foggy today!). I thought you all looked great. Just signed up some sunnies for our next retreat. Hugs to all.

I just realized how much money camera companies could make if the sold lenses that made us look young, skinny and well rested? I'd pay for that....

Let us know about the "awakened living" concept.... sounds interesting!
Don't worry about the camera! You all look like you are enjoying yourselves. Isn't that what life is about?
