It’s been a busy weekend, but now the chores are done, the groceries have been put away, and the car is refueled. With a good book to enjoy — Echoes of Sherlock Holmes, a terrific collection of short stories inspired by the world’s first, and forever foremost, consulting detective — and only a few idle hours remaining before the work week begins again, it’s time to lean back and crack open a sour. Today, it’s a Farmer’s Reserve Nectarine brewed by the Almanac Beer Company in Northern California. Try it before California secedes from the Union and import duties make it crushingly expensive. It’s light and tart and very fine, indeed. (Thanks, Emily!)
Sunday afternoons are to be savored, even in a crazy world.
