In PA with The Kid

All went well this morning, despite my paranoid worries. I made it to the bus on time, early in fact, and the ticket booth was open. The trip was uneventful, I dozed most of the way, and we arrived about 20 minutes ahead of schedule. The Kid and SIL picked me up and we went back to their house, where the SIL made waffles for us. While The Kid got ready to go out I watched some episodes of a British TV show about people moving out to the country. More entertaining than you might think.

Anyway, then we went to 2nd and Charles, a wonderful bookstore like the lovechild of a union between The Strand and Forbidden Planet birthed in a Barnes and Noble. The Kid bought me a tee shirt for my Mother's Day gist, and I bought myself books. A couple of Mercedes Lackys, a copy of Paladin of Souls for Oldest Brother so he can stop borrowing mine, the P C Hodgell book which combines God Stalk and it's sequel, which I used to own but no longer did. And had just been thinking about very recently. An Ellen Kushner, Thomas the Rhymer. and from their free books out front, a Jonathan Kellerman Alex Delaware mystery I don't think I've read. Happiness!

We went to Wegman's after that for a snack and some shopping. I got sushi, cause nothing says day with the kids like raw fish on rice.

Then we came back to the house and read cozily for several hours. The FWiB called and we had a short conversation, and then we went out to dinner at a crepe restaurant. Delicious!

And now we are reading again, and I borrowed the SIL's computer for this post.

Gratitude List:

1. The Kid.

2. The SIL.

3. The FWiB.

4. Trip went smoothly.


6. Wonderful day.
