sick


yup

chicken soup
with the celery removed
tea with honey
lots of room temp water

doctor's appt thursday

they're back!


the day i went to get my stitches out 
i was delighted to see
the fountains in columbus circle
 were back

as it seems
is
my sore throat

gah

après le déluge


this weekend was a 50/50 mix 
saturday was somewhat sunny
while
sunday was mostly rainy

weather peeps say the beginning of may is usually
unpredictable
temperamental

i think that just means
its as weird as the rest of the year

the only snow storm we had this past winter
occurred over a weekend
got rated as being a top contender for one of the worst
then
 this past week 
the meteorologists 
decided 
after a recount
 of
 snow on the ground aka accumulation
that
 it was 
indeed 
the worst one
 in
 new york city history 

huzzah

i cant wait for summer

i have said this before 
nyc doesn't do spring

this year was no exception

i wonder how hot the hottest day it will be

meanwhile
i wish it would stop raining

up or down


my mom
 used to say
 she was sure
new york city would be wonderful
 once they finished it

downtown there's a lot of construction
a lot

and an airplane!


its amazing the things we see and the things we dont

i was so busy
 trying
 to get those budding trees
 to be part
 of
 my water tower photo
 i didnt see the airplane



eye-catching


another 
stopped me in my tracks
 image

not that
 i think
 it would have done the same for you 
necessarily

back to work monday morning

i think it got me seeing things differently 
or 
maybe just seeing things

i wont relate all of it 
but
 i had the weirdest dream
 sometime
 before 
i woke on monday morning

in it
 i knew
 i was dreaming

in it
 i thought 
i kept waking up
yet i was still dreaming

cue the twilight zone music

when i finally did wake up
i sat on the edge of the bed
i said out loud
i am awake
i am definitely awake


hugs given

thursday morning before my surgery
