A Good Saturday

Well this Saturday is going quite well so far. Kevin and I lounged around the house in the morning, then headed to Ben and Jerry's for a nutritious and filling lunch (I had Vanilla Heath Bar Crunch--or whatever it's called).

Then we headed over to the grand opening of the new San Jose Public Library. Talk about impressive! The new library combines the old public library collection along with the San Jose State academic library. One library card works for both. The 8-story building is simply gorgeous--light, airy, and nice and cool on a hot day like today. Sad to say I haven't stepped foot into a library since my grad school days, but I'll definitely be making use of this new library. It's right on the SJSU campus which is conveniently located near to our house. I already saw one book I'm ready to check out (Jon Krakauer's new book). Unfortunately, they don't allow beagles. Which is sad, really, because there's nothing more relaxing than reading a good book with a beagle at your feet.
