The Weekender | No. 3

I am a bear in the winter.

Besides work, the occasional dinner, book club or special event, I love to be at home. With the time changing and the last rays of sun disappearing from the sky later and later each evening there is a comparable upswing in my desire to go out. I am so excited that my seasons of outdoor reading and socializing is close at hand.

This week, I attended the Daisy Jones & The Six book launch with Mari, had lunch at Tue Thai with my aunt, attended Company’s Women’s International Women’s Day Event, and had dinner with friends at a new-to-me wine bar, Pierre Loti.

  • I dnf’ed a book this week. It pains me because it was a relatively short book. Only 238 pages! I only had 60 pages left and I was just bored and irritable every time I picked it up and started reading. In the end I just let it go, and finished this book, which I really loved.
