Shops close tomorrow evening (Tuesday the 9th)before I leave for the Pacific Northwest to sing at a wedding and see the sights!
The shops will re-open on the 23rd of August.
After I return there are no more scheduled trips out of town, which means creative immersion here I come!!!
By the way, when I was filling out customs forms to mail packages today, I noticed the date was 8/9/10 and I was made really strangely happy by that fact.
