Can I just that I love Fridays? Particularly when they are not followed by a working Saturday? I'm looking forward to having some time tomorrow to just relax, get stuff done, etc. Need to replenish the veggies (Farmers' Market, here I come!), clean the apartment (which hasn't really happened for a few weeks because I've been so busy), hang the last few pictures.

Oh! pictures! And by 'pictures', I actually mean 'records'. My local goodwill (not much more than a hop, skip and a jump from my front door) has proven to be a treasure trove for old records. So far I've picked up some Chicago, Eagles, Kiss Me Kate, Elton John, Carly Simon and (the one I'm most excited about) Carole King. I'm working on getting frames for all of them and hoping to have them all hung up by the end of the month. Gina helped me with the first few so I've got a good start.

Nothing really special for the weekend -just hopefully regaining some sanity and preparing for the week to come.

Reading some good books now. I'm loving my local library (even if they are a bit slow to put things on the hold shelf) and they appear to have a pretty wide variety.  Right now reading "Speaking of Empire and Resistance" by Tariq Ali. Pretty interesting stuff. I'm hoping one of these days I will find a modern novel I actually want to read. Most of the stuff I see these days (and it really isn't supposed to be an offense to the authors) just does not interest me as much as non-fiction or old fiction does. I would rather settle in with a Bronte or an expose than read "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest". Granted, I don't really know anything about TGWKtHN, but the name doesn't really strike my fancy... and in the spirit of history, I am judging this book by it's cover.

Well, lunch is almost over, so I'm off to finish the last half of my day and greet my weekend - with arms wide open, running in slow motion to a sappy 80s ballad.
