this and that

i thoroughly
 enjoyed
 all
the comments
 yesterday's 
sales associate photo
 provoked 

a lot of you 
wondered
 about her shoes
 others
 were concerned about her attitude

 it was interesting
 to see 
what you saw

 thats kind
 of 
what
 got me
 sharing photos
 of 
what
 i see
 and
 blogging about it 

may i say thank goodness for auto correct because i seem to be mistyping a lot today 

before
 i share 
another photo
 from last weekend 
eastside adventure
i want 
to
 share
 two wonderful books
 i read
 robert ferrigno
 is a favorite author of mine
 he writes involving novels
 with really good characters 
the girl who cried wolf
 is his latest
 after a really good trilogy
called
 the assassin
 i enjoyed the assassin series
but 
i really like his other books more
 this was a return to that style

 the other read
 was bittersweet 
louise penny's latest and possibly the last
 tho she seems
 to have sort of left the door open for more 
of 
chief inspector gamache of the sûreté du québec series
 how the light gets in
 followed
 a beautiful mystery
 which
 did not
 in any way
 end beautifully

 so when i downloaded this new one
 i did something
 i dont often do
 i read
i peeked
at
 the beginning
 of the last chapter
 i just needed 
to be able 
to read the whole book
 calmly
 without rushing
 without skimming
 so i could learn what happens
 to one of the central characters

 i must say
 this book
is
 so well plotted 
even tho i knew what happened
 i didnt know how it came about 
she saves
 all that 
for 
the next to last chapter
 which i didnt look at

 both these
 well 
all three of these books 
are wonderful
 i highly recommend them

 and
 now
 here's a photo
 i hope 
sparks the same sort of response 
the last one did



 this is my last fridaycation
 and
 a 4 day weekend
 woot 
so
 i promise
 i will get out and take more photos

  1. I often read your 'this and that' and absolutely love them but am a little shy about the commenting! Thanks for the book review, I think i'll pass on both of them but it's good to know I won't be wasting any more money. Great photo...what are they standing in line for?

  2. Oh, a juice bar.

    Your last Fridaycation? Well that is just sad. It means summer is over.

  3. I haven't yet read Louise Penny, though everyone loves her work. I really need to get around to reading her. Ferrigno is new to me, so I'll have to check him out. Hope you enjoy your last long weekend of the year (I assume you'll be working next Friday)

  4. Hope she's not carrying too much in that big purse. Just the mere size of it makes my shoulder ache. Looks like a really neat shop though, and the colors in this photo sort of pull me in. xox

  6. such a classic morning scene in NYC
    the place looks so small and I would pass it by as it would make me irritable and bitchy almost immediately

  7. Looks like a really popular place, is it a deli?

  8. Daryl, I think everybody must be lining up for a lunch sandwich. Looks like an interesting place! I really like their bench out front!

  9. A juice bar that also serves soups. Tasty Liquids: Hot or Cold. I'd call the place Gazpacho. Or Juicepacho.
