Morning view

When I woke up this morning, this is the first thing I saw. I like to keep the blinds up so I can see the day as soon as my eyes open and this is why. It was like I was still dreaming, my camera barely captured what it really looked like. The air was so crisp, it felt like the morning was crystal or something. I went out and wandered aimlessly all day, shopping, smiled at everyone that helped me and said something kind to them. Poor things, having to work in retail :(
Everyone was kind right back. I nearly ran over one lady crossing the street and two cars almost backed into me, but everyone seemed happy enough, that was good. I met Gerry for dinner near our tiny but sort of interesting mall here in Chapel Hill, so he left to shoot a Duke ball game and I wandered again through the strange mall. What an odd place. It has this amazing art gallery though and I saw some beautiful paintings that need me and I need $1400 to have one of them. Also some beautiful raku vases and bowls, so Christmasy. The best part was a very flamboyant and I would pretty much guess a gay santa, and he was adorable! I wanted to go tell him what I wanted for Christmas. What a cool guy he was! Then I went into Cameron's, a really interesting store that has a religion shrine upstairs, so I took some pictures of Jesus and texted Wesley. She used to love to visit this shrine when she was younger. I think she might have left a note in there once upon a time.....they have the song Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, playing on a loop and it's fun to be in this space. Check it out if you are ever in this weird mall.
I found some interesting things, but people I got things for read this so shhhh.... it's a secret.
I did get my mom and her hubby a fun CD called Winter Wonderland with Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Judy Garland, Dean Martin, and more. Sending it out tomorrow so they can have some Christmas memories flood their brains. All the oldies but goodies!
Magical day... I'm off to wrap it up with a little Skyrim
peace ya'll

What a beautiful sight, and a nice way to wake up and start the day! Delightful description of your trip to the mall, I don't think I have ever been to a store that has a shrine upstairs! You sound happy!

You can't help to be happy when you wake up to a sight like that. The mall sounds really interesting, I don't think I've ever said that about a mall.

Lori, it's still a mall, and it struggles to stay alive, but there are some really cool stores there. They don't have Gap and J Crew and all of the other big name stores, just some unique shops, even a store that sells vintage items along with very nice clothing. I think right now there are three galleries although there have been others from time to time. We are getting a new library here, so the library is temporarily located on one of the spaces and the local Clayworks Guild just had their annual pottery sale in the atrium area. Its a mall I don't mind going to, that's for sure!
