Good morning! I hope everyone had as nice a week as possible. I myself was swamped with work, but have been enjoying the weekend and the cooler temps. This morning, I woke up early and took a long walk along the East River. Yesterday I did yin yoga, worked on research, and took a walk to the library to return the library books that I checked out long before COVID. I dropped them in a massive bin, and the books will have to go through a quarantine period before they’re shelved. I checked out some more books from the Libby app and spent the rest of the day indulgently reading and watching Gossip Girl re-runs in the background. It’s been a lovely weekend, and I’m sad to see the tail end of it.

We really need this escape right now: The Great British Bakeoff is coming back to Netflix.
