We were both fortunate to get out of work at a reasonable time, so we headed downtown to a bank that would change dollars into euros, then we went to a French restaurant for dinner. We rarely get downtown anymore. I feel out of place. I have become so suburban. All the best places to eat are down there and it is only a fifteen minute drive. We also stopped by our favorite place on the lake to get some coffee. Unfortunately, we haven't even hit 30 degrees this week and so it is not the type of weather to enjoy this great summer hangout, but it did get us in the mood for summer. Hopefully this summer will be a bit warmer than last, but I will take green grass, and leaves on the trees again. Couple more months.
Here is the brilliant spirit, the woman of sorrows, the woman of transcendent joy, who would rather be elsewhere, who has consented to perform simple and foolish tasks. Laura Brown The Hours
