I love that bookshop - I like the way the girls working there just pile things up while they're cataloguing them or whatever they're doing. Huge piles of books almost falling over. My kind of shop.

I can get a lot of stock from them - they pretty much always underprice things.

That sounds cool to look at (picturing in head what it looks like).

Or is that the store you showed in a photo on here in the past?

Sounds like a good supplier of books.

I saw a pretty waterfall on a long walk then did two yoga workouts to help with anxiety and they really did help

Been struggling to learn a new skill for my job. The resources were either too wordy and talked to the reader like a child, they weren't detailed enough and I'd still be confused, or they were just dull and couldn't hold my attention span. I just found a resource that's straight to the point, explains it well, and doesn't put me to sleep lol. So excited to learn and keep this momentum going.

Sorry mate - don't think I got a notification about this one. No, I think I put a picture of Kay Craddock's shop on here one time. It's a beautiful place - she charges quite a lot to make up for the expensive rent she most likely has to pay. I used to sell books to her sometimes wholesale.

This other place is not fancy at all - down in a basement. But I like it much more - lots of cheap books.

Sounds smaller if selling books for less.

You've got a very good memory mate, much better than mine.

I was mixing furniture in a house that is old school coated, polished with that colour carpet.

So sort of off a bit about the cabinets.

Carpet is more a purple under those lights.

Bad memory for me.

Surprisingly I got my entire security deposit back from my apartment that I moved out of a few weeks ago. I thought for sure that it was a lost cause. I put a bunch of 1/2" holes in the walls mounting TVs and monitors. I patched them up and painted them myself and thought my work was shoddy, but apparently not.

I went to church with some a friend and he made me the best sandwich I had ever had in my life. Also I played a very fun board game.

Felt better for a while yesterday, thought of a few things I can do. Went and got a decent haircut and had breakfast, then met my wife at the mall again. I like it when it's so busy there - a good atmosphere but it makes me a bit tired.
