A perfect day

I think I had close to a perfect day today. Here’s what I did:

  • 2 hours working in the garden, listening to philosophy podcasts
  • Went into town with my daughter to a multicultural festival. Ate great Italian gelati, drank Polish beer, ate Thai mussels (in that order)
  • Went to a bookstore (& found Dan’s book on the shelf, which was good as I owe a copy to someone as a prize)
  • Visited friends & spent an hour doing nothing but chatting
  • Did some weaving
  • It rained – something that has not happened for months
  • Now the frogs are jumping around outside, and the crickets are chirping, in rainy joy (I haven’t seen frogs or heard crickets all summer as the drought has been so bad)

The only thing that would have made it more perfect is if my husband had come to town with me. But he was home making beer – one batch of which is a Scottish Ale for me, and I can’t complain about that…

    How’s that – both mentioned Dan’s book in the posts on the same day! It’s a damn good book though.

    If you don’t mind me asking, what podcasts were they? Might be interested …

    Damn, I thought it was my book you’d spotted! :)

    Dan – I’ll look for yours next time & will let you know!

    Thanks :-)

    Sigh, your day sounded great (though I’d skip the weaving & replace it with baking).

    Thanks for the link to the Philosopher’s Zone – love it!!
