The News: Saturday, July 13 Edition Beth Snyder July 13, 2013 Do you ever have one of those absolutely perfect days? They’re rare, but all the more welcome when they happen…and yesterday was one of them in my world. I got to spend the first part of the day hanging out and running errands with a good friend (we call each other non-boyfriend and non-girlfriend), and then he took me out for lunch. After I finally wandered home, I actually accomplished a ton of stuff that needed to get done, including actually completely unpacking from vacation, which usually takes me at least a week. Then, in the evening, my actual boyfriend came over for a while to hang out (I hadn’t seen him since about a week before I left). After he had to get back home, I sat around my house sipping on some good white wine, listening to my new Paul Thorn CD, and in general just relaxing and enjoying the summer night. Now today I’m heading off to a huge family birthday party, which hopefully will be another good day.
