Out And About Today

Today I am having a nice day out at one of my favorite happy places:  Barnes &  Noble.  School has started so there aren’t very many people here except for the older set and a few moms with sleeping babies in strollers and one actual carriage.  A venti mocha frapucino with whipped cream and an extra shot of espresso at my side, books galore (several of which are on my table), my tablet, and the Internet available I am a lot more relaxed than I was earlier today.  There is even knitting available because I made sure to slip a couple of projects into my Barnes & Noble bag.

Is it strange I have a bag set aside to come to the bookstore?   There is also a writing bag I try to keep stocked for taking out with me, too.  However, since this is a bookstore day I honestly didn’t see reason to bring two huge bags with me besides the over-large purse that accompanies me everywhere so my tablet can accompany me at all times – except on dates, of course. 

When I first arrived I almost paniced because I remembered I didn’t have a journal or notebook with me to just write in.  I then chastised myself because I’d forgotten all about the Nook!  Old habits die hard. 

It is time to head into the ink mines for more words on the novel/novella.  Here’s hoping everyone out there has as great a Thursday as possible.


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
