This past weekend, I attended a meeting in the ‘Carnegie Building’, in the town where I grew up. The building was the public library when I was a little girl. I was sooo upset when they built the new, big modern library and closed this one. That was years and years ago, when I had to ride my tricycle 10 miles uphill both ways, to get to the library.
This was my first time in the building since it was the library. These days, it is a meeting and reception venue.
After the meeting, I shopped the lovely downtown, just one street over from the library. I stopped in a cool vintage clothing store, and came home with two great finds. This madras dress will be excellent for bicycling. I had to take up the hem about 3 inches so it won’t look dowdy with my proportions.
Before–with the new hemline marked with the iron
I wish I could wear the longer length. But I’m not tall enough, and nothing will change that.
And then this totally awesome gem!
It needs no alteration…, as long as I don’t gain a single ounce.
On getting home that night, I did a run/walk on my 3.5 mile loop.
There was a rain shower in the distance.
Deer in my favorite cultivated field.
The six deer were hanging out at the edge of the field, but they headed into the trees when they saw me.
And then as I approached home, a rainbow.
Some days are this good.
