Early this morning (though it felt like very late last night), I posted about our wonderful weekend so far. Today was even better. Bob and I hiked under the pine trees at Bastrop State Park, and visited our favorite rock shop where Bob bought a few bright marbles and hearts for the treasure box for his students. Thirsty from hiking in the heat we treated ourselves to oversized diet limeades from Sonic - and enjoyed them immensely. As we drove away from the rock shop, Bob saw a sign that said "BEADS" and turned down a driveway to follow it. We found an out of the way little bead store where the man teaches classes in wire work and makes his own pendants - and where he sold beautiful semiprecious beads at really reasonable prices. I bought three colors of jade, two sizes sodalite, and some really striking sardonyx and jasper. I haven't bought semiprecious beads in some time and am excited - and was especially touched that BOb found the store and encouraged me to buy. I felt like a young woman on a date with him today - the hiking and shopping, and on the way home finding fresh juicy peaches at a roadside stand and letting the juice run down our chins. What a lucky woman am I!

Those are the kind of perfect day that make you glad to be alive. I'm glad you two got to share that. What joy!
