Nice time yesterday morning making a circle through the East Bay. First to Berkeley Bowl for nuts for the squirrels and then over to the fringes of Fourth Street to see if Anthropologie had the wrapping papers in their store that are in their catalog. Happy deal! They were on a 40% off table. Many, many book covers to come out of Nepalese lokta handmade papers. The clerk wrapped them in their own bundle with the store tissue (almost waxy) a milk chocolate brown with custom masking tape securing my golden present to myself. Literally- golden, gauzy, hand-made pulpy paper. Amazing.
Over to San Pablo for a quick-lunch at Cafe Fanny
confirming again my desire to be a barista in my next life because I think I would be pretty good at the designs in the foam on top of cappuccinos
to Acme Bread for whole wheat with walnuts (nuts, again??) and New York rye.
and into Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant for some bottles for presents.
Then back home…considered a good days work after I had started on some book covers…
