The weather has finally turned to summer here and it feel so good. I assembled our teak table and set it out in the courtyard yesterday. I had lunch outside and it was really lovely. All of our neighbors went by while I was out there and stopped to chat. Funny how just putting a table and chairs out there makes it feel much more like a yard and a community.
In the evening, I took one of the manual typewriters out and wrote a little. The glare was too strong for the laptop and somehow the typewriter felt more indulgent. I have to finish the story tomorrow since I won’t be lugging a typewriter to NYC and switching to computer will change the voice some.
Today I had lunch out there again. Then in the evening biked up to the Kennedy School to have dinner with Beth Wodzinski and Felicity Shoulders. It felt so good to be outside and have it be something other than cold and rainy.
This evening was my last gym session before heading off to NYC tomorrow. Things are much easier than they were when I went in last week. It always amazes me how quickly things come back. When I return from NYC I’ll keep going but at a somewhat saner pace.
Anyway, that was my weekend. How was yours?
