I Never Wanted Water Once

A beautiful bevy of beverages.

Today was another beautiful day right here in river city. The guy decided to try and take the bus downtown for the first time. I took an extended lunch and we walked to Prairie Lights and picked up a few more books. I got Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five (I haven't read it since high school and Coadster strongly suggested I read it again), Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen suggested by Facebook friends, and the guy bought me The John McPhee Reader. The guy is more of a non-fiction reader, so it's been nice for us to recommend books to each other that we wouldn't normally read.

After the bookstore, we went to Masala to eat at the Indian food buffet. The food was wonderful. We had a great talk and then walked around downtown for a bit before I had to go back to work. I still can't believe it's been in the 70's here today. I think we have one more day of that before everything gets a bit more seasonal, but there's no way I can complain. I went running in a t-shirt and shorts again today. So weird.

Gotta love Indian summer, old books and great food shared with a close friend.

Those drinks look tasty!

I'm loving the beautiful weather this week, I wish it would last much longer.

What a great lunch break! I love getting book recommendations, because if left to my own devices my reading preferences can be a bit narrow :-)

I wish I still had time to read, now that I work from home I don't have my bus commute to read anymore.
