the other half

sleeping in
 i did get up at around 7
 to feed the cats
 to shut them up
 they sit outside the closed bedroom door 

 after i fed them
 with my eyes closed
 i went back to bed til almost 9

 i love sleeping
 when i am snuggled under a comforter

i got my act together
 took it on the road

this week
 my nails are
an essie color
 thats a 

a perfect 
beginning of fall color

  after my morning at polished beauty bar
 i walked
 across to columbus avenue

there was a huge street festival underway 

i didnt stop to shop
 i was on my way to dramatics
 for my wash/blow dry
 i am wondering
i will be trekking
 all this way
the weather gets nasty

 i sure miss going to sam and chris
since tina is gone
 there's no one there on sunday
 who i really dont like


i stopped at citarella
 for some of their own brand salad dressing walnut vinaigrette
 its light and tasty
 also picked up a salad
granola peanut butter banana chocolate cookies
 i suspect
 if they are good
 they will be deslish
 on the other hand
 they might be gross
  i will let you know

 toonman and i took a short walk 
he needed to escape the giants who were losing
 (and continued to do so, he is very unhappy) 
we took a short walk
 up through the park
 to the community gardens

it was chilly
 when the sun hid behind the clouds
 the breeze that had been lovely
 earlier in the day
 a lot stronger and less pleasant
we walked 
always a good thing

i got a few shots of people 
 the end of the weekend


  1. Glad you had fun getting all beautified! Don't you just hate it when your favorite person leaves? Fortunately my daughter is my "beautified"!! Looks like everyone is getting ready for Fall...I love it!

  2. love street fairs.. and those should begin here in a few weeks.

    don't think I have been able to 'sleep in' since Tease arrived...
    15 years ago.... oh someday ....

  3. Hope you find a closer hair place; I know I wouldn't be happy walking too far when it gets snowy and icy. Yesterday was a perfect day for walking -- not to hot but sunny.

  4. NO beatification here... Still all summertime schleppy looking unfortunately. I need a haircut but putting it off until it gets a bit more length so I can continue to use my groovy hair clips.

    Is that woman gardening or what? Looks suspicious. LOL

  5. Autumn is more gentle here - I put a jacket on for the first time this morning! Despite the wind, it looks like you had a great weekend!

  6. Oh you energizer bunny! Love your Sunday photos, and it looks like you had some lovely weather. :) Saturday was our last stolen summer day here. Sunday it rained so, so much that I took a complete rest day and didn't do much of anything. (I guess we all need a day like that once in a while) Love the woman gardening; I used to drive around a sharp corner to my old house which turned the car to face a house where a woman really loved to garden. But many, many times I'd turn that corner to have a view of her enormous bottom in her semi-transparent, stretchy, lycra sweats as she bent over her task. It got to be a funny sort of joke where we'd be turning that corner shielding our What are we like? Have a lovely, lovely day back at work. :)

  7. Daryl, glad the second half was as good as the first half!

  8. I love your glimpses into your weekend :-) Have a great start into the week!

  9. I do believe I need to find myself a local spa for massages:)

    Wasn't it a lovely day on Sunday after all?! It sounds like you had a perfectly wonderful weekend!

  10. Our Miss Kitty starts the noise at about 5:00 am, and there's no stopping her until she gets what she wants. :-)

    I LOVE the color of that nail polish! xo.

  11. Diggin' the Essie color! Even chilly, your weather sounds perfect for walking. Cannot wait for Autumn weather to get here (yes, I know...I'll be waiting a good long while...ugh). I shall continue to live vicariously through you & (my favorite) the upper west side. Kiss the orange boys...xo

  12. I was thinking of the Toonman as I watched the reports come in of the game. I wouldn't leave him alone with sharp objects.
