blather

left the office
 very early on friday
 hung out at home relaxing

 saturday
 i got up
 got dressed 
went out
intending
 to do
 the erranding
 after
 i did some 
beautifying

 well
 as i walked up the street
arms filled with dirty clothes heading to the dry cleaner
 there
 were 
snow flurries
 flurrying
 about

 damn

 after my hair appointment
 i headed home
 errands would wait til sunday
 especially zabars
 where
 bus loads
 of
 out of town shoppers
 were
 about to make it
 even more of a challenge
 for neighborhood shoppers

 my plan to stay in
 was 
thwarted
 when
 i went to get something for lunch
 only to find
nothing
 interesting

 i looked out the window
no snow

 put on a coat
 headed out

 as always
 i went to the furthest point
 i prefer to 
work 
shop 
my way back uptown 

 dropped off a broken necklace at gold mine jewelers on 72nd
popped into lululemon on 74th
westside market at 77th 
for their practically mayo free egg salad onion rye for toonman some guacamole some chips
 coffee at fika on 78th 
where i ran into an old friend and her husband
 a former co-worker of mine
 we had a good catch up
 before
 i went on to the eyeman on 81st
to find out 
why
 frames ordered in mid january still hadn't arrived

  all errands accomplished
 home again

sunday
 was
 a much nicer day
 it was palm sunday
 a fact
 that escaped me
 til
 i was almost up to broadway
 all angels church 
was
 holding an outdoor service
 i couldn't resist snapping a few photos


after my mani/pedi at polished
i met my sister for brunch
at
 eric kayser 
this time 
it was as good as the first
 good enough
 to erase the last not so great meal there

we walked back uptown
 stopping in papyrus
 did you know
 they carry some nice 
and
 not so cheap
 jewelry 
we both bought earrings

took this shot
 because
 who could resist bunnies!

  1. Well you had yoruself a day. One thing about Tulsa is that we don't have throngs of tourists crowding the locals out at anything.

  2. Oh god, tourists! That's Oxford for me. Can't move some days for the tourists. And what is it about that strolling arm in arm five people deep business? Drives me crazy. Or the crazy Japanese tourist groups following an umbrella holding guide. Usually those come by the dozen, or more, identically dressed, strolling and gossiping and not paying the slightest bit of attention to the guide swarms. (groan) Are you good at crowd surfing?

  3. The bunnies are cute!

    Since January? How long does it take to get eyeglass frames done?
