This was a bit of a wind-down week…end of the month, end of summer, end of vacation. One more day off and then it’s back to it on Tuesday. I don’t feel ready but what are you gonna do?
The week started off with a minor miracle. I was meeting long-time online friends in the city and pulled into a spot at 5:50pm IN TIMES SQUARE right across the street from where we were meeting for dinner…and saw this sign. For those of you do not live in NYC, please understand – You Never Find Parking in Times Square. And here I pulled right up as if by magic. I sat in the car til 6 and presto – parking.
We ate at a crazy place called Ellen’s Stardust Diner where the wait-staff sings all night long. It was a fun atmosphere but very hard to have a conversation.
Tuesday I met my bestie at the beach and we had a lovely leisurely day of sun and surf. It so wore me out that I fell asleep in the afternoon back at home and was way late meeting friends later for dinner.
The next day we met again at a friend’s pool and had another relaxing afternoon just floating and chatting. I stopped at the bakery on the way.
I bought a watch for my birthday…but when it came it was GINORMOUS. I like a large, man’s size watch but this was ridiculous. It’s all packed up to be returned.
I was on puppy watch one evening.
Really? Is that my best??
We got together for pottery painting reveal night and s’mores making.
I forgot to take a picture of mine. I’ll slip it into another post this week somewhere.
The town library has a Little Free Library box.
I left off my copy of The Nest and took the Kathy Griffin biography. Not really my thing but pickins were slim. I may just hold onto it for a couple days, see if anything better pops up.
And this weekend I have just relaxed…did some tidying up…read a harsh book called My Absolute Darling. I’m not recommending it, it was a brutal read.
And now it is past my bedtime, so goodnight. Sorry for the boring week, but…second week of vacation.
