shopping spree

That last post was a tad depressing, so how about a happier topic? Buying stuff is always happy, right?

090913 01 stuff

Yesterday I went shopping and spent about $20 on crafting supplies. Yikes! Why the high total? I went out to get some keys made, got lost a MILLION TIMES, had to get my friend to Google directions for me, and once I got there, was told that they didn’t have any of the correct sized keys. Oh and it was raining all day. I had been out for over two hours (on what should’ve been a 30-minute trip), had no keys (which was the main purpose of my trip), and in addition to being stressed out, was wet and sloshy. So naturally I bought stuff, because that’s what I do when I feel like crap – retail therapy.

090913 02 rain flowers

I didn’t feel so great when I got home, but the rain really was quite pretty and I normally do like rain. I took this photo when the rain let up a bit and my camera wasn’t in serious danger. The white flowers just looked so calm and peaceful against the background … if only my mindset would match.
