The Sunday Salon, Monday Edition
Good morning. Is it Monday already? Thanks to a quick trip to NYC, our weekend flew. We left Friday afternoon and drove into the city. I usually prefer the train but, with a car full of necessities for Daughter #1, it wasn't an option this time. We arrived in time for a late dinner at a favorite restaurant, after which tired parents were ready for sleep, while twenty-something daughter headed uptown for a party. Saturday was spent walking, engaging in touristy activities, shopping, and eating. Sunday morning we headed upstate for a visit/brunch with Twin A and her boyfriend, and arrived home just in time to ransom an anxious greyhound from the kennel. And now it's Monday.
Believe it or not, I actually finished two books last week. Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple was just plain fun, and I loved The Bucolic Plague: How Two Manhattanites Became Gentlemen Farmers: An Unconventional Memoir by Josh Kilmer-Purcell on audio. A road trip to Sharon Springs is definitely in order, but in the meantime I'll preview The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Cookbook from the library. It may be a book I need to own.
Yesterday I started The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë and am looking forward to picking it up again later today... definitely a good sign.
I hope your week is off to a good start.
