Went to Jackson’s with two favorite people on Friday night.
On Saturday, had breakfast at Wendell Smith’s with Stephen, then went to Rhino Books where I bought three more than the one book I was “allowed” to buy (per my budget, or lack thereof). After that we went to Centennial Park and sat at the Parthenon, reading. It was extraordinarily bright; or anyway, it seemed that way after all the grey, rainy days we’ve been having.
Later, we went to a house show, and when we got home made cocktails with gin, crushed garlic, and pepper. It was a full and good day.
Sunday, we went to Fido and then Village Pub where we mostly read, sometimes talked, and did some writing/watercoloring.
After Village Pub, we went to the Frist to see their exhibit closing yesterday — the Art of the Dominican and Franciscan Orders. Then to JJ’s for a caffeine pick-me-up before heading to a birthday party that one of Stephen’s friends throws for Mozart every year. The concert featured a lot of Nashville Symphony players and was really excellent. I was fairly exhausted but really enjoyed the music nevertheless.
Whether it was the late afternoon coffee or something else, neither of us slept very well last night, but nevertheless — it was a good weekend. I’m looking forward to being chill the next few days, though.
