This weekend was gloriously spring-like here in the middle Atlantic. I escaped from Washington with a few friends and drove to Baltimore to meet up with the fabulous Meg for a house tour of Homewood (more on that in the coming weeks), a delicious lunch at Donna's, and a quick trip to the Book Thing (my haul: a 1952 edition of Daphne du Maurier's My Cousin Rachel, a 1968 compilation of three Mary Stewart novels ~ Inkslinger, I thought of you! ~ and a 1950 guide to the Vatican museums). Leaving Baltimore, we managed to get ourselves lost (despite Meg's excellent directions) and ended up on Federal Hill, in front of Rub BBQ. Clearly, some pork ribs and margaritas were in order ~ our first al fresco meal of the year!
Well, I am off to the UK for a week. Cheers.
