Quite a Perfect Day

Yesterday was one of the best I've had here. The weather was a brilliant 67 degrees, and bright and sunny, I didn't have too many pressing homework assignments so my friends and I decided to go and visit Lexington.

Lexington is a beautiful tiny town, peppered with boutiques and other fun knick-knack type of stores. We found a wonderful used bookshop, a chocolate store which has been voted the best in America (with good reason) and we got our tickets to the midnight showing of Harry Potter.

Along the way we stopped in a tiny little shop that had everything under the sun. tea-pots, cards, journals, ornaments, piggy-banks, and other beautiful trinkets. Our friend Bren was actually able to find a gift for their little brother there. He apparently likes bow-ties and we found a "emergency bow-tie" in a box. Perfect Gift!

Also there was an "antique" store, run by a man with the worst southern hick accent I have come across. It looked like someone had just emptied 200 hundreds years worth of attic and stuffed it into a space that wasn't nearly big enough for it all.

It wasn't a particularly spectacular day. It was just a quiet, fun day out with friends. Those days are the best...don't you agree?
