A good book should leave you... slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading it.
Writers at Work, 1958
Today, I spent a glorious morning (2 plus hours!) sitting in Barnes and Noble with a few books and big stack of magazines. Add a grande hot chocolate and I'm in a literary paradise. My sweet husband had a photography club meeting and I was very content to spend time all by my lonesome until my eldest daughter dropped by. What a lovely surprise!
I wasn't certain that she would be able to visit but she was and she did. I wanted to give her the little baby booties that I had made. She was thrilled with them and I was thrilled with her. We chatted for a while and then she left to run errands.
I barely touched the magazines. I decided to work on my Bible Study homework first. I joined a Ladies Bible Study at the church and we're going through a study on 2 Corinthians by Kelly Minter. It's been ages since I've joined a ladies study and I am so glad that I did. I am generally very shy but with God's grace, I went and enjoyed the study and getting to know the ladies.
After Barnes and Noble, my husband and I went to our favorite hamburger joint, the pet store, and Costco. Home again and it was time for a quick nap. We are still stuffed from lunch so dinner will be light and delicious and maybe just dessert. ♥
