Friday marked the start of the long Easter weekend and I’m really enjoying staying in and reading. It’s a lovely time in the city, as most folks take advantage of the long weekend and leave town. John took me to a very cool Nordic restaurant, Sal, Friday night — the chef had catered an event John attended at the Norwegian embassy and came home raving about the food. On Saturday night, Jill gave us her reservation at Anchoita; they open reservations a year in advance and they get snapped up quickly — yikes! It was our second time there, and it was also very good. We sat at the bar surrounding the open kitchen, which was fun.

I finished the very excellent memoir “Salt Path” (thanks, Joan!) and really enjoyed it, then read “High Conflict,” a really interesting discussion of how people get into an “us vs them” mentality. I’m now reading our book club pick, “Just Kids,” by Patti Smith. We’ve been watching “The 3 Body Problem” on Netflix — a local billboard says to the series’ aliens: “We’ve got more than 3 problems – are you sure you want to come?”
