i've had a lovely, relaxing day. i got up around 10, wrote out some postcards, read some mail. left at 11-ish for the post office. stood in a line that went all the way to the doors. bought stamps & more stamps. and international stamps. heh. then i went to the mall. the plan was to get a (late) birthday present for a friend. except i got freaked out by the parking lot. :( they had a big portion blocked off for ... idk what. i thought i had a spot, but then it turned out to be handicapped, and then there was another car backing out, but i missed that spot. and then there were just cars everywhere and... i got panicky. so i drove out of the lot, thinking i might go back tomorrow.
it was such a beautiful day! i drove around for awhile, taking pictures...
there were some crazy ppl out driving today, too! i only take pictures when there are NO CARS around when i have my big camera, because it's not the easiest to handle w/ one hand, and i don't need to cause or be in any accidents! i also do not turn in front of ppl when i have to turn left & there's oncoming traffic, especially if they have their signal on.
i was happy to get some pictures of the changing leaves, and hope to take more as the leaves change more. i don't want to miss them again like i did last year!!
once home, i spent the afternoon watching csi: NY, blue bloods, GH...aunt carol called me for help uploading pictures to FB. : ) today they celebrated aunts janie & jan's birthdays, with breakfast at symposium & then rousing games of hand & foot (canasta) and present opening. don't they look happy???
now i'm going to watch some more GH & whatnot. doesn't this sound like such an exciting day? *laugh* but it is just the kind of relaxing day i needed. next week will be busy, again, still, and i'm grateful for this time that i get to just veg out & rest up. : )
