After yesterday's excitement today was a quiet day. I spent the morning catching up on indoor chores and made a batch of carrot-apple-ginger soup. The apples were a new addition to my favorite standby soup and they work well in it. I went out this afternoon to a benefit book sale which supports social service programs in the neighborhood. I found some great Christmas presents and am feeling (somewhat) organized in that area.
While yesterday was bright and sunny and a perfect fall day, today had a much more reflective look of late November. It seemed that the leaves had dropped off the trees overnight and I saw more bare branches than bright autumn leaves. One plus is that the details on the wonderful turn-of-the century brownstones in the neighborhood are much easier to see.
I hope everyone is having a sweet Sunday. I've got a cup of coffee -- at this hour decaf, of course! -- and the NY Times puzzle ahead of me. I hope your evening is as relaxed and happy.
