It's Monday and I'm in New York City! We're heading home in a few minutes, so this will be a quick update. It's been a whirlwind weekend of good food, great art, and beautiful outdoor spaces. We'll make one more stop at The Cloisters on our way north..
The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante is even better than My Brilliant Friend. I haven't been able to read very much this week, but always look forward to that hour in the evening.

On the homefront//
Angus, our visiting greyhound, left Wednesday night after a ten-day stay. The house seems very quiet now... and I think Zelda is lonely.
We picked up an early Father's Day present for my husband - a tandem kayak!
An impromptu trip to Manhattan seemed like a good idea. We decided to drive down Friday evening, but both girls were out of town until Sunday. We had a good time anyway, and enjoyed a family evening on Sunday.

The week ahead//
Will be a short one... A couple of doctor's appointments for Twin B and lots of book sorting in preparation for our annual Friends of the Library book sale coming up in July. And of course we'll be using that kayak!
