Today’s weather was the best we’ve had since I moved here. Beautiful cloudless blue skies and not too hot.
I actually opted to take a walk to our neighborhood shops on Maple Street — and if you know me, you know I’m not into getting hot and sweaty on a walk so this was a big deal.
I stopped by Swap, a second-hand store for women’s clothes. I got some shirts for work and the staff was really friendly. I’ve been there before and gotten a less than pleasant experience with the staff, so I think it’s kind of hit-and-miss.
I also stopped in and met the lovely staff at the Maple Street Book Shop and bought a great book for my little cousin called Goodnight Nola — based off the popular book Goodnight Moon but with a New Orleans theme. After grabbing a snoball from Plum Street and heading home, I watched some t.v. and now I’m off to make fish poboys. Wish me luck!
