Our fortieth anniversary, we spent the morning at Barnes and Noble, who hosted my first book signing for my newly published novel, MATTIE. It was a sellout requiring additional orders. For lunch, we drove forty-five minutes to eat at the Green Spoon. In the heart of old town, and like all the other businesses on the street, the restaurant was skillfully renovated, maintaining its quaint charm. I ordered a delicious Rachel Sandwich—as opposed to a Reuben. My husband ordered grilled salmon.
We came home to laundry.
John said I let him off easy. He expected a hold out for Hawaii.
Add popcorn and a late night DVD, I say the day was perfect.
