A Perfect Wednesday

Last Wednesday was a wonderful, wonderful day and I thought I'd share a bit of the happy.

First, I went to the library.  And saw the hot manfellow I saw at a different library earlier in the week, which leads me to one conclusion: we're destined to be.  I mean, two libraries, two separate days, exact same time?  And we drive the same car?  Tell me that's not cosmic!

Unless he's way younger than he looks.  Then I'll just make friends and advise him which YA books to read, because I'm kind of an expert on it.

Anyway.

So after, I met up with Sarah, who is so amazing beyond words.  I beg you to click to her page and look at what a talented artiste she is.  We headed on over to Encinitas, perhaps one of the most typical beach towns in California.  Palm trees?  Check.  Ocean?  Check. Beautiful, toned people carrying surf boards to the water, hair sunbleached and skin suntanned?  Check.  Cute downtown with eclectic mix of boutique and second-hand stores?  Check.  Street lined with pubs and bars and varying international-cuisine restaurants?  Check.

God I love San Diego.

The goal of the trip was to visit Book Tales, an adorably quaint second-hand bookstore.  We know by now that I have a thing for books; and second-hand ones are absolutely lovely.  There's already an entire world within pages, and second-hand gets to encompass an entire other life, a history as to someone else owning it.

And you can't beat the weird titles you will inevitably stumble across.  (Hey Sarah!  We Need to Talk About Kevin.)

After spending quite the amount of time in there (in which I acquired Charlotte Bronte's Wuthering Heights, since I've never read it and figure I should one day), we walked up and down the main street, popping into the random shops.  At Sarah's suggestion, we headed down to the beach!  Which, I mean, really...why would we go two streets from the beach and then not go?  Plus, it was a beautiful day.  Sun shining, not sweat-inducing heat but a nice warmth...perfect.


And yeah, I'm definitely wearing jeans and a jacket while at the beach.

Finished off with a ridiculously amazing and ultra-cool two-woman a capella concert in the car--with a few dance moves--of the discography of *NSYNC, and it was safe to say that that day was pretty much the highlight of the year thus far.

About Me

I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
