My Week in Review: Week 33

When thinking about this blog post and this past week I thought, oh, meh, I didn’t do much this week. Ha. So funny how the brain works.

The week started with another night of dog-sitting.

The next day a friend and I went to a place we’d never been a little bit out east on the Island, Quogue Wildlife Refuge. I was hoping for a little exercise with some nice foliage views. But it seems like the foliage is turning sooo slowly here this here!

On the way home we stopped at a charming farm stand in Westhampton.

How cute are these white pumpkins? I think I like them better than the traditional orange ones!

While I passed on the bread-pies, I did pick up a couple ears of corn that served as dinner a few nights this past week. Yum.

Ya gotta love a big ice cream cone.

I’m still trying to assemble a full 2-weeks’ worth of work outfits. I liked this one in theory but not so much in actual execution. I did like this black I.N.C. cardigan from Gwynnie Bee, but I sent it back because I know I have a similar one somewhere that’s been in hiding since September. Where could that thing be??

I haven’t been cooking much recently, but the little bit of cold-snap we had this week inspired me to make something warm and cozy…so vegan cream of spinach soup and garlic toast crouton sticks. Yum.

I posted this fun shoot. I LOVED this dress. It’s SO easy and comfy…but it didn’t make sense to spend money on it now as it’s really more of a warm weather item. I sent it back to Gwynnie Bee but I’ll recloset it next March.

The kids yesterday morning as I was heading out.

Yesterday we visited Welling Court in Astoria, Queens, which is a several-block-wide street art/graffiti collective.

I love this one. Look at the detail in the little fox curled up in the lower corner.

Two-faced man.

Elephant has many stories to tell.

I would live there.

Pretty.

Everything important is invisible. Amen.

Fake wooden sneakers.

Someone had a good night. Or a bad one.

Schlubby but comfy on our day of a lot of walking.

Jimmy the Angel. Not to be confused with Johnny Angel.

A little birdie told me it’s almost Halloween.

I liked this funny little squished-in house.

And this one, part old shiplap type wood and part modern concrete brick.

Looking up.

Then I got to fulfill a bucket list item – riding the Roosevelt Island tram!!!

img_4498

We were almost as high as the 59th Street Bridge. For a million years I’ve driven across this bridge, wishing I was on the tram. And now I was!

img_4487

We were so high!!!

Hello Tram Friends!

On the Manhattan side, we tried to go in here for lunch. Fail.

More looking up. Never forget to look up.

The End.
