A Hyperlinked Saturday

Yesterday was one of those late winter days that seems to hold the promise of spring. The sky was clear and the temperature soared into the mid-20s. In the morning, we walked down to the Northfield Arts Guild to check out the all school art exhibit (Peter has an artwork on display) and listen to the 8th grade brass octet (with Peter on trombone) play in the downstairs dance studio. All of this was part of the NAG's "Imagination Celebration." It was the kind of Saturday that, in England, would have sent Clara and me out on an hour-and-a-half walk across fields of wheat, rape, and sheep to one of our favorite country pubs, the Tipperary Inn. Instead, in the afternoon, we walked circuitously around town for an hour until we arrived at the Contented Cow. After a quick pint of Belhaven, we walked to Just Food Coop to buy ingredients for salade ni├žoise; we also bought a baguette, some good French camembert, and smoked oysters. At the Muni, we picked up a chilled bottle of white Coteaux de Languedoc. After the meal, we finished off the evening with a viewing of The Awful Truth (1937), starring Carey Grant and Irene Dunne, followed by one of the odder episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
