weekend blather

it was a real summery weekend
 sadly
 its over 
 rain is expected through wednesday
 this is one wet june
 ugh

 fridaycation
 was spent 
with
 a good friend
 we went to the whitney 
we had lunch
 in
 the cafe 
its on the 8th floor 
its got a terrace
 in fact 
floors three through 8
 have lovely terraces 
with 
seating
 views 
and 
art 
that rivals the views 



before we went 
i called to see if reservations were needed
 i thought 
untitled 
(the clever name of the restaurant)
 was where we wanted to dine 

well 
no

 its on the ground floor
 while
 i am sure the food is good 
there's no view 
so
 after we got there
 we opted for the cafe 
 sitting outdoors under an umbrella 
yielded 
immediate seating
 vs 
a 15 minute wait to sit indoors
 and
 look out the glass wall
 or 
ogle the other diners looking out


a no brainer 


the move downtown for the whitney
 i heard
 was a tough choice
 the whitney family worried 
no one would come 
now 
you can't keep them away


 renzo piano
 designed the building
i am in love with this building 
it reminds me 
tho probably no one else
 of 
the getty in los angeles
 both
 are 
open airy using lots of natural light

another thing i like about it
it contrast sharply with the rest of its neighbors


 i digress 

saturday
 was spent 
in an equally lovely way
my beautiful goddaughter 
was in town 
for law school friend's wedding shower
i was/am thrilled
 she had time to meet me for brunch
we also dined outdoors 
it was an almost humidity free day
spring kitchen on columbus 
is
 noisy indoors 
but
 a delight
 if weather permits 
to sit outdoors


sunday
 was
 devoted to beautification
 being a sloth
 thinking 
about 
monday 

a full plate weekend

i hope you had a good one
