saturday stuff

it was my monthly massage
 i love 
having
 all my aches
 all my tightness
 stress 
vanish

 my body 
feels
 like
 overcooked pasta
 in a good way
 after
 being kneaded for an hour 

my normally 
very dry skin
 feels so soft 
looks normal
 vs 
looking like the parched desert

 after i left the spa 
i decided 
to walk
 back
 across town

 i have never walked across via the transverse
 in fact 
i have never walked across town
 ever 
before 

this fitbit
 is
 truly spurring me on

 i paused
 to take some iPhone  photos



 (neither of these are signed)

when i got out of the park 
i walked down 81 street
 to 
amsterdam
 i decided to pick up lunch
 there's a hummus place
 called
on the corner
 i stopped in
 they have a veggie wrap
 i asked
 if they could make it 
without 
the chickpeas

 i am not a big unmashed chickpea fan

 the woman taking my order said
 absolutely

 she asked
 did i want hot sauce?
 yes please

 plastic utensils?
 no thank you

 turkish coffee?
 yes please

 it took a few minutes to prepare 
i waited 
amusing myself
 by looking at the photos i had taken

 when i got home
 i opened the package

 the coffee had been put in a cup with the top taped
 and
 then
 in a plastic bag
a good thing
 because
 it leaked

 they also
 taped sugar packets to the lid 
i dont use sugar
 but 
 it dissolved
 mixed into the coffee  
due to the leak

the plastic utensils
 were fine
 even tho i didn't need them

 there was no hot sauce
 and
 you guessed it 
the wrap
 was 
99% chickpeas 

i picked out all i could 
before
 giving up 

biting into it
 i thought there was some plastic in with the chickpeas
 no
 it was just the eggplant rind 

picked that out too

 i was left with
a pita 
wrapped
 around
 spinach 
two small pieces of red pepper
 a little piece of tomato

 the coffee
 even tho it was sweet
 was good

 if you go to hummus kitchen 
dont order the veggie wrap

...

toonman and i decided to take a walk
 a variation
 on 
our normal two routes
we walked along the river
 it was beautiful
 but 
oh so windy

 i think the gulls were enjoying the wind
 they seemed to be wind surfing

 i got some
 i think 
great shots
by

keeping my finger
 depressing the shutter 
 i can pick and choose which ones to keep
 i wish i had video taped them 
they were having such a good time
 here
 see for yourself






oh yeah 
the buoys
 were
 sunbathing

  1. I so miss walking along the water and I am really looking forward to the beach!! The lunch did not sound good.

    Glad you had a good massage! xo

  2. Such a life you lead. I can't even really walk to a convenience store. I think it would be great fun to live for a year in a major city.

  3. What nice walks you took and wonderful pictures! It has been windy here too, the hawks have been wind-surfing too. So sorry about your lunch, I'm not a big fan of chickpeas unmashed either.
    Hope you have a beautiful Sunday - sleet and snow predicted here!
    xo

  5. Wasn't yesterday beautiful! Love your gulls and the clouds here. That chickpea incident pissed me off though, and it wasn't even my meal. Grrr.

  6. Beautiful gull and sky photos! Too bad about the lunch. I like a good hummus wrap, but not whole chickpeas unless they happen to be roasted and spicy.
