Except for the long part where I worried (and I still do worry) about my little brother-in-law.
Work was good. Afterwards, Mr. Micah and I had dinner and went out to Borders on one of our coffee dates. Only this time, I got to buy the book! I ended up going with 2 books (looks sheepish), total of $25, The Interior Castle by Saint Teresa of Avila and Dark Night of the Soul by Saint John of the Cross. I’ve been meaning to read these books for a while. And I think they seem worthwhile enough to actually buy them. I’m very aexcited about both! I looked at so many, it was deliciously fun to browse.
I still have $25 of birthday money left. My plan is to buy another big saucepan/pot for making big batches of yummy food! And if I have something left over, it’ll go towards the craft budget. 😀
To make my birthday even happier, I browsed my bookshelves here for things I haven’t yet read, or haven’t read all the way but want to finish, or want to reread. Then I set aside all the ones that look interesting. It was like book shopping all over again, only with an unlimited budget (since I already own them!). That was fun.
