A Simple Day

Today was complete bliss. Not a penny was spent, other than a quick bite to eat. As some of you know I don't have typical Monday through Friday work schedule. I'm at the store Tuesdays through Saturdays which leaves me with every Monday off. Normally I spend this day running errands and working on various projects that are in the works. I haven't shared this yet, but our schedule has changed around our house just a bit. We took the plunge earlier this year and David has decided to go back to school full time for a second degree. His heart and passion are in computers and at 18 years old when we were all asked to declare a major and choose what it is we're going to do with our lives - he didn't know that yet. After months of talking about going back, life threw us a curve that launched us full swing into our plan. One of the good things about our new schedule is getting to spend TWO full days with my partner-in-crime. We haven't had this schedule in a long time and it's simply blissful. I'm lucky enough to have a husband that's always up for an adventure - even if it involves antiquing. We hopped in the car and headed south to Architectural Salvage - a rusty, crusty, chippy, heavenly shop in downtown San Diego.

  4. Is this the one about a block from the Casbah? My husband and I went to a concert there earlier this month and walked passed what I think was this store. Definitely left breath spots on the window I was trying to peer in at all the goodies.
