Practicality with pleasure
“He has gained every point who has mixed practicality with pleasure…” — Horace

If the weather is gloomy, browse in a bookstore or library; if it’s sunny, take an afternoon walk. A small break in the normal routine can brighten up a winter’s day. What are some of your favorite practical pleasures?
