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.
