A bit of warmth peeked out this weekend, and I almost lost my head over it. I honestly felt like hugging myself, like I could preserve the warmth by clutching it around me.
I decided to celebrate this hint of Spring by gifting myself with a treat that I haven't given myself in a while - a long, leisurely wander through my favorite, local, public library branch. After careful perusal and deliberation, I walked away with four books and an audio book (approximately half of items that I had originally picked up). I don't really know what it feels like to delight over a shopping spree, but I imagine it feels like this - a wonderful, satisfied feeling.
Some other treats from the weekend:
Best eat - Alvarado St. Bakery sprouted multi-grain bread - a new-to-me loaf with an excellent, chewy texture.
Best read - "The 'Boys' in the Bunkhouse" via the New York Times - A nuanced look at the lives of a few dozen men with intellectual disabilities, their neglect and eventual re-introduction to society.
