alone time

I've written before about how I need to recharge after being more social than usual, or after particularly harrowing work weeks. Even hanging out and having a good time with very good friends can leave me feeling sort of wrung out afterward.

So I had a lot of fun and socializing last week - my regular movie night with Julia (who had never seen the 90s masterpiece that is Devil's Advocate), checking out a peanut butter porter at Resurgence Brewing Company (I quite enjoyed their porter, and I'd forgotten how rapturously good their Resurgence IPA is), and dinner and then a few drinks with my book club.

And then I burrowed into my apartment and stayed blissfully alone all weekend. I read a lot - I'm really into Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live right now. And I watched "Obvious Child", which I had wanted to see in the theaters, but I think it was only here for a week. I really liked it, I thought it was both sweet and unpredictable, and very, very funny.

I took some walks in the early gloom, and I kicked through tons of fallen leaves. I noticed a lot of cats watching me from windows.

And I took some naps, with my own cats draped all over me.

So refreshing.
