We expected a hot, muggy, stormy day. What we got was warm and humid day that was quite tolerable, even pleasant, with no storms at all! So we passed the morning quietly at home and, after lunch, headed out to Great Northern shopping center for a quick walk-around and a visit to the nearby Half-Price Books. At the book store we both found treasures we could not (or would not) pass by: she in cookery, I in astronomy of course. We both regretted not being a bit more active out-of-doors but did enjoy a quiet, lazy day and a little exploration along the way. Even at that, we spotted some beauty both indoors and out!
