This week was almost like one in my ideal world. First of all, I had a whole week of fall break which I spent in Manhattan. Second, until Friday the weather was still summery. I know that it is different in New England, but in the city foliage is only…

Of the last six weekends, I spent only two at home. One of them being this. While I was still a little active and social yesterday, e.g. we met friends for lunch and I accompanied my boyfriend to the train station, I needed a lazy, quiet Sunday today. A…

I am sitting at my kitchen table listening to the rain slowly and evenly coming down outside. Canavar is taking a long cat nap on the bed. It is one of those great quiet summer Sundays when I don’t even have to leave the house. I have been home since…
