What are you all up to this weekend? My husband is hanging with the kids on Saturday to give me some long-awaited time to myself for a few hours. What am I going to do with all of that freedom!? Walk the Loop Trail with my dog? Camp out at a coffee shop with a book? Speaking of which, do you guys have any good book recommendations? Right now I’m re-reading Timothy Egan’s incredible 2009 book “The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America” because Egan is coming to the Numerica PAC in April. After that, I’m open to suggestions.
See you all back here on Monday! In the meantime, here are a few fun links from around the web.
