I need to figure out a better way of transporting groceries, because this is the second time lately that I’ve carried A MILLION POUNDS of groceries back from Whole Foods. Also each time I do that I regret spending so much money at Whole Foods. I did get a lot of food, though, which I’ll need.
Before Whole Foods, I went to the Athenaeum and checked out a Gail Carson Levine book I hadn’t read yet, plus an American Girl book about a character that was invented after it was my time to read about her. This, of course, is prompted by the fact that Levine is going to be at the book festival I’m going to tomorrow.
All I want to do now is get into bed with my book and maybe have some soup. Very tired out from walking in the rain with a bunch of heavy bags.
I only just found out about a big used bookstore that’s actually really close to where I live here… I was talking about it for like 5 minutes to Chris when he says, “There’s one on ___ Street” …. The very bookstore I had just described to him, address included. Thanks for listening, bro. It didn’t have the book I wanted to buy and I was in a hurry because I had to go meet with my group (though that didn’t end up happening), so I didn’t look around too much, but I’m glad to know about it. I’ll definitely go back when I have more time.
The other day, I was looking at this skirt (which I want but should not buy because I have spent enough money on clothing) and thinking about the pattern:
This tiny-flowers pattern is very appealing to me because it reminds me of the dresses I wore as a little girl. I started wondering if perhaps that was why it was in style… the generation that is buying this sort of pattern is nostalgic for the time they wore it in childhood.
Also, Kirsten was my favorite American Girl (even though Molly was my doll). I wonder if this has anything to do with it. One of my floral dresses was a light blue like Kirsten’s.
