Since starting this monologue I am no longer dreading Mondays.
I still wish the weekend was longer.
Especially this past weekend because it was a good one.
It was a relatively quiet week at the office,
the bosses were all on vacation,
a yearly event all us not bosses look forward to
it means we can come in/go home pretty much as we please.
It pleased me to leave at 4 p.m. on Friday.
Of course this confused the cats who think when I get home its dinnertime.
After all our real dinner times
Toonman and I watched a movie.
a British comedy,
with Bill Nighly, Emily Blunt and Harry Potter's Rupert Grint.
A funny farce, get it at NetFlix.
was a very cold and windy day, typical March weather.
After beautifiying™ ,
I dropped off the dry cleaning, picked up a few things we needed and headed home
Toonman was up for a walk.
We headed out walking north on Riverside Drive
after the incline
(small, very small hill)
between 83-84th Sts
we crossed to the park side
and had a sit
on one of the benches
in the sunshine.
I snapped a few photos
the trees are budding!
I took a page from my friend Kate's
'the back of my husband'
He really only uses the cane when he's outdoors walking.
He's walking just fine now.
We walked 12 blocks
his new personal best!
there was more beautifiying™
and another movie!
Its a very predictable movie,
the outcome is fairly obvious
it was still fun, at times edge of the seat exciting
Less exciting was the basketball
Toonman watched before and after the movie.
Sorry Kansas lost, Annie!
And a shout out to the self proclaimed
that emailed me.
Thank you so much for your kind words
I havent ever been up to The Pool in Central Park
but I think next weekend if its nice I will head up there.
