Sitting in a quaint coffee shop, drinking a latte, and taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi. Kids are at the lake with their grandparents. Hub is sitting across the room on a cozy couch instant messaging me from his Blackberry. We’re such geeks.
A guy just came in and pulled an iMac out of his tote bag and set it up on the coffee table. Now there’s an idea. Maybe I don’t need a laptop after all. I should just pack up my iMac.
The weather’s kinda crappy, and it’s not supposed to improve much. It’s the perfect opportunity to hunker down with a good book. Speaking of which, I’m about to turn the laptop over to Hub and finish the book I’ve been devouring – S is for Silence. Do I have any fellow Sue Grafton fans out there?

I hate it that the weather is not so good. But I love the fact your in a little coffee shop without kids….how wonderful. Enjoy this time alone.
its actually nice to have crappy weather when you’re snuggled in a cozy coffee shop with NO CHILDREN!
I live in the Portland area. I think we’re supposed to have nice weather tomorrow, but rain the rest of the week. It is good reading weather. What about a Maine author- Elizabeth Strout is good.
I love the Sue Grafton books! I have saved all the Kinsey Milhone books. She’s a great writer, I hope she doesn’t retire after “Z”.
Love your blog, and Chic Critique, too.
LOL! That is so funny that someone put their iMac in a laptop bag and travels with it! It is small enough but it is still so funny!!
i JUST lifted mine up and it is heavy!!!
Sue Grafton is one of my long time favorites. *I* just keep hoping she doesn’t DIE before she gets to Z! I need to know how Kinsey comes out in the end! (I was shocked to see she actually entered 1988 in the last book! I think all the other books have been set in 1987! LOL!)
Enjoy the peace and quiet!
You guys are geeks. 🙂 But here’s a little secret: Jeff and I would probably be doing the same thing. Shhh!
I would give my right arm for a day like that. I spend today at the beach with the 4 kids. Well, just 1 hour – that’s all I could take! That is a post for another day!
Enjoy your vacation!
oh that sounds lovely. glad you were enjoying your day. happy vacation ;O)
Sounds PERFECT. Weather notwithstanding 😉 A good book is definitely my idea of a pleasing vacation accomp… accomp… accompn’ment. 🙂
I think I’ll stick with the laptop;)
Sounds like you are having a good time with your coffee house visits and your naps in the afternoon! I’m just sitting here fighting a stomach bug!!
I hope your rain goes away! The quaint coffee shop sounds like heaven. Enjoy!
I just listened to “O is for Outlaw” my first experience with Sue Grafton – she’s a good writer!
Curling up with a good book is perfect for a dreary, rainy day in Maine! (with hot coffee, too, well that is priceless)
We’re in NH, heading Down East in a couple weeks, and since I have no laptop it will be sans computer. I definitely need a good book.
Sometimes we are crazy and drive from Colorado to Georgia. I heart Cracker Barrel because you can rent audio books and return them anyway. I usually get a Sue Grafton book, so I’ve heard several of her books. They are great for road trips!
