thankful

apologies
to all 
my many blog comment leavers 
to all my friends whose blogs i follow

 i have been delinquent 
in 
both replying and visiting/commenting

 i blame it all on this long holiday weekend
 on all the friends 
i have visited with
 broken bread with
 i have been on the go 
since 
i left the office on wednesday at 1pm 

thursday
i slept til almost 11
watched the end of the parade
watched the dog show
then it was time for
thanksgiving prep

i ordered oodles of food
(all pre-cooked so it was a simple heat up)
my sister brought 
pies
and
 some additional veggies 
i was so worried
 we'd not have enough 
we had plenty

nope 
no photos of food
we ate it all
 before
 i could even
 think 
of
 sharing
 a photo or two

friday
 i met my friends and their daughter
at 
the whitney


after
 we saw 
the Stella exhibition


 and
 the Archibald Motley exhibit


we took a short walk on
the highline

a


then 
we needed sustenance 
so
 we went to 
Bubby's 
it was highly recommended
 and
 it did not disappoint


we walked off brunch 
took a stroll 
down to my office
photo ops from the 43rd floor 
plus
 photo ops on the memorial plaza

then we all hopped the uptown express
they got off at times square hoping to score tix for Hamilton

i headed home
when i got up to 79 street
the christmas tree sellers had their iconic santa up
for me 
this signals 
the real beginning of the holidays



saturday
was a much needed spa day for me
my back has been aching for a month
i feel a lot better now
after the spa 
i met my friend blondie
 for
 brunch and a catch up
after
 we eat 
we usually go shopping
 but
 it was
 nasty rainy 
heading home seemed smarter

sunday 
i was supposed 
to meet another friend 
for a visit to MoMA and brunch
 but
 i cancelled 
the non stop fun 
left
me exhausted
and
i hadnt spent any time with my honey
as i write this he's yelling at the football game

life is good
i am 
thankful 
for 
all that exhausts me
without it 
life would be empty

  1. Wow!! Busy, busy, busy -- though sounds like fun. We spent a very quiet weekend at home. Much needed for me. Now I'm gearing up for the winter holidays and festivities.

  2. Look at you go! No wonder you felt exhausted. But still, you had a Thanksgiving weekend of joy and fun and family and friends so that's wonderful. You lucky girl! That's one aggressive looking piece of sculpture. It's one of those things which I can't decide about. Do I love it or hate it? I love the fluidity, the shine and the mat aspects, but don;t love the shape. Oh well, I guess if it invites conversation then it's a winner! Love the Motley painting though, no doubt about it. :D

  3. You're moving faster than a race horse 'round one of our Ocala tracks! The Motley work is wonderful - so full of color and energy. I really love that last shot of Santa and people and early evening lights...superb!
