It’s Friday and I’m very much looking forward to the weekend. The weather isn’t supposed to be particularly nice and other than the start of BIG 10 football, there’s isn’t anything in particular that’s getting me excited. All the same, fall weekend have a particular vibe. The fall light feels just perfect for napping or reading something that I probably could allow to sit on my bookshelf for a few more months until the urge passes.
I hope that all my readers have escaped the recent uptick in COVID cases and are surviving the bumpy road to the election next week.
