Hopefully, I'll catch up on blogs and get some editing done today before this wet, heavy snowfall brings down the powerlines as predicted. We have enough firewood in to keep the chill off one room if needed. Usually I found the first snowfall of the season lovely but getting it in October kind of takes the charm off the experience.
The only good news is the weather will keep me at my writing work.
While in Chapel Hill, my daughter and I did our usual routine of investigating any local independent bookstores we can find as well as Barnes and Noble. We found a terrific store called Flyleaf Books. My daughter invested in two thin books of French poetry published in the 1920's and I found an early book by an author I've been meaning to sample. If she decides to attend college at UNC, that store will see us again.
We also made our tour of the coffeeshops. She's of the Starbucks generation but I was thrilled to find a Caribou Coffee shop. I like Caribou better and their cafe was very comfy. I wish we had one of their places around here. Today though is a hot chocolate day.
So Caribou or Starbucks for you? Snow or sunshine today? Hot chocolate or hot coffee or wine?
