Delaware is delightful. It's one of those towns that when you open your copy of "Country Living," the article starts something like "When Bob and Lucy Luckypants found their charming 120 year old brick colonial in Delaware, OH . ." It's blocks and blocks of beautiful old homes, a downtown that has maintained it's retro charm, antiques stores, cafes with good food, and Crossroads Music, in which Eric Clapton (yes, god lives in Columbus, Ohio) has been spotted. Oh, and it's home to Ohio Wesleyan University, which is about as picturesque and top-notch as a university can be. Old homes, retro downtown with tons of antiques, college town . . . the perfect combo.
Today I'm hanging in Beehive Bookstore, a great little bookstore with an outstanding selection, good coffee and cappy, free wifi, and lots of comfy chairs for reading. Oh, and this really cool mural on the back entrance.
The time goes by Really quickly, then it's back home to laundry, yard sale preparations, and the general work of being a mom. But what a nice way to spend my little bit of free time!
