Better late than never! What have I been doing and thinking lately?
Reading: Alice McDermott’s Someone, her newest novel (and her best).
Art: “Hopper Drawing,” an exhibition of Edward Hopper’s drawings (most of which I’d never seen before!) at the Whitney.
Video: The final episodes of “Breaking Bad.”
Eats & Treats: Apples (and cider doughnuts!) that we picked on a recent outing to an orchard in Westchester.
Beauty Products: On a recent visit to Barneys, my friend N. and I explored quite a few fragrances, old and new, at the Serge Lutens counter. I fell in love with Bas de Soie.
Garb: Back to black tights! Now I feel like myself again.
Annoyance: My seasonal allergies have not yet abated.
Pleasure: A recent visit to friends in Detroit, which I’ll write about soon!

Wow, I already love Alice McDermott’s novels and if her new novel Someone is her best, I am in for a TREAT!
I’ve read “Charming Billy” and “Child of My Heart” and “After This,” but “Someone” is now my favorite of her books! I won’t say any more… I’ll just let you look forward to it.
