monday monologue: the weekend recap


It was a very busy weekend.  
Lots of pampering, 
lots of beautifying™, 
lots of walking
 and 
taking of photographs  

There was eating, 
drinking 
and 
celebrating
as well as tech calls to Apple

Lets start at the beginning
turning my usual schedule of 
beautifying™
upside down
I got mani/pedi'd at 
on Friday

On Saturday
 I had a massage scheduled at exhale, 
a good thing, 
as my back had been wonky all week.  

After the massage 
armed 
with a container of fresh, organic lemonade/juice 
(lemon, cayenne, agave/honey) 
I walked 
from 
at 77th St/Madison Avenue 
downtown 
I got to 72nd St 
and 
had to stop 
to snap this antique coke machine 
for my friend Kate
on display in the Ralph Lauren shop
window 

Onward 
downtown 
I walked 
as I got toward
 65th Street 
I thought
 I might need 
a pit stop 
Barney's their bathrooms are always clean.  

I was 
about 
to walk 
under this 
construction 
shed


when 
I looked
up 
and 
across 
at
this


flag waving 
horseman 
and 
his steed 
rest 
atop 
Hermes store 
once a bank 
the store now just rakes in money


walking south 
from 
the loo stop in Barney's 
down to 
Salon AKS 
where 
works magic for me every time 

After my hair appointment I headed down Fifth Avenue, 
why? 
because 
Sixth was busy crazy with a street fair 
disappointed I didnt snap some pix there? 
Well I apologize 
but after a while one street fair looks like another hot crowded  
did I say hot and crowded?


At Fifth and 42nd Street 

these 
tourists 
armed 
with umbrellas 
to keep 
them in the shade 
were looking 
at


Leo the Literary Lion

I too snapped his noble repose

Later in the evening 
we had dinner at 
Recipe 
celebrating 
our 
33rd wedding anniversary


 two toasts were made one with steak in this self portrait 
and 
this one of my darling husband toasting me!
(apologies for the bad iPhone photos)


Sunday 
was 
spent 
first dealing with Apple engineers 
to help ToonMan 
uninstall Lion and reinstall Snow Leopard 
due to some non support issues of three programs he uses for his business
once the reinstall was underway 
we took off for a walk

it was 
HOT 
but not 
humid 
and 
I wanted to give my new 55-200mm lens 
workout

the George Washington Bridge always looks a lot closer than it is


obviously the only morning glory eating caterpillars were in my window box


in among the tall ornamental grasses the Queen Anne's Lace thrive


 someone with a sense of humor put sunglasses on this sculpture
see it 
w/o the sunglasses
and 
no 
it 
wasnt 
us
