Looking north from my building
Today was the first snow of the season, the winter season. I am not counting the storm we had in October as part of the winter. Despite the fact that my family and friends in Connecticut had no power for over a week, the snow melted quickly here and it was autumn as usual immediately after. I took this picture in the afternoon, when it had stopped snowing and the sidewalks were no longer slippery.
I am so tempted to stay home on snowy days, especially when I don't have to go out to work. But our synagogue book club had a great program and I got myself up and out. I live only a few blocks from where the program was held, so weather wasn't much of an excuse. Julie Salamon spoke about her biography of Wendy Wasserstein, "Wendy and the Lost Boys." Julie was interesting, warm and an extremely engaging speaker. I've been eager to read this book for a few months and I will be loading it to my kindle this evening. I think it will be a perfect book to settle in with on a cold winter evening.
On the subject of reading...I'm always looking for book recommendations and would love to know what my blog buddies are reading.
Tonight it's a good book, a cozy throw and a cup of tea. I can't wish for more, except that all of you have an equally sweet evening.
