Art: “Edgar Allan Poe: Terror of the Soul,” at The Morgan Library.

Eats & Treats: Some very tangy cheese that my husband’s friend brought back from Amish country.

Drinks: An Oktoberfest beer or two.

Garb: A new pair of Rieker ankle boots. Also, just because it makes me smile, this dress from H & M:

Pleasure: Cool, crisp autumn weather.

Anticipation(s): A haircut and a massage! I really need both.
