What I Planned to Do This Weekend:
See Gone Girl and/or The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby
Visit the Holocaust Museum
Make homemade bread
Return a sweater that looked so good in the dressing room, and so terrible at home
Clean house/do laundry
What I Actually Did:
Walked to the National Mall
Sat down on a bench
Read for hours
I finished Julia Child’s My Life in France and started The Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family. I wore jeans and flannel button-ups. I ate 3.5 Honeycrisp apples (I was dive-bombed by a huge flock of pigeons while eating the last .5 and dropped it in my hurry to shield my head). When it actually became chilly (DC, you darling!), I put on a jacket. I smiled at the good, and frowned at the bad, and passersby thought me utterly rad.
Except for the pigeons, evidently.
