It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Two days ago, there was no snow. Like most people, I was disappointed because, even though I don’t celebrate Christmas, there is something special about a white Christmas. That’s what Christmas looks like in story books, after all.

Yesterday, it snowed, giving us the following:

And, naturally, there’s no Christmas for my family without a trip to Starbucks; the only Starbucks in the area that remains open on Christmas Day. Clearly, we were not the only ones.


While I do feel badly for the employees who have to work, I hope they’re happy knowing that they’re making the rest of us happy.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Afternoon Coffee

I don’t typically take myself out for coffee on weekday afternoons, but I did today. This is the inside of Starry Nites Cafe, one of my favorite haunts.

The “dining area,” for lack of a better term, is another room that you can glimpse underneath the chalkboard. There’s a tiny table in a corner that I love, but someone else clearly loves it, too. As a result, I sat at one of two tables right by the door, which let me watch the eclectic customers wander in. Naturally, I had a book to hide my peeking.
