Feels Like 2

What do you do with a weekend when says today's temperature "feels like 2?"
 It's funny, but after the busy week I've had, nothing sounds better than to have an excuse to curl up in our apartment all weekend and read and cook and nap! 
Last night our apartment was completely packed with students and friends and some good hard laughter and a late night.
Just the way we like it.
Now it's time for the pendulum to swing over to quiet and rest for a day or two.

My usual defense against Chicago winter involves my North Face down, the best base layer, smart wool socks, and Cloud Layer fleece.
This weekend I'm arming myself with a few different weapons which include...

Book One of both Harry Potter and the Hunger Games... which one do you think will hook me first?  I can't wait to find out!
Bread pudding
Chai tea
My camera manual

The only venturing out this weekend we will do is to drop off a car load of items our small group bought for a refugee family from Burma who is moving in in Chicago today.
Chicago's giving them a harsh welcome, but I hope we can make it a bit gentler showing up at their apartment door with groceries and blankets.

Hope you all stay warm this weekend!
