Yesterday was the younger daughter’s birthday. We had a delightful outing. First we hit Starbucks for yummy treats. My driving may have caused her to lose a bit of hers, but we overcame.
Then we headed to Cleveland to a Books A Million (aka BAM). The plan hub and I devised was to pay for all her books as a birthday gift. She had quite a haul, and tried to argue with the plan. The guy at the register who checked us out made things work. At one point an older woman heard the interchange and tapped me on the shoulder, “If you need someone to buy books for we’ll be right over here.” Then she looked at the daughter and with a huge grin and matronly authority said, “Let her buy the books.” Everyone within earshot was rolling with laughter.
Lunch came next. Her choice. We went to BIBIBOP. New to me, but it definitely won’t be my last trip! Delish!
Today we planned to go to the local library book sale. Before COVID, the library had three sales a year. Neither of us had been to a sale since some time in 2019. She found several books to add to her collection, and I came away with the twenty you see above. Together we spent $8.00 on books and then we renewed our Friends of the Library membership.
Now I need to start reading.
