blather .. lazy blather ...

i walk
 from
 the subway
 to
 the court house
every morning
 taking
 one of two routes

 either 
i take 
the express
 to
 chambers
 walk 
along
 west broadway
 then
 down 
worth

 or
 the local
 to
franklin
 across
 franklin
 to 
centre

 both ways
 i am walking
 iPhone in hand
 ready
 to
 snap
 whatever
 catches my eye 

the other day
 when
 i was reviewing the photos 
i taken
 i found this one


i didn't take it 
not intentionally 

seems
 my camera 
has
 a point of view 
all its own

 on the upside
 at least 
its
 not
 a photo 
of
 the inside
 of
 my pocket

i spent
 saturday
 mostly hanging out at home
 slept til 9 
ignoring
 the caterwauling
 of
 both harry and jack
 outside
 the bedroom door

dropped off dry cleaning
got a muffin
the world's worst coffee
which i did not finish
i dumped it
seriously 
it 
was
that
 bad

got
 my hair 
washed & blown 
had 
words with the stylist 
she kept me waiting
 not
 the
 'just five minutes, ok?'
but
 20 minutes

 then
some window shopping 
picked up coffee beans 
for toonman 
got myself
a salad 
came home 

we watched
 a lovely
 little
 7 minute
 short film 
pixar's the blue umbrella 
its delightful

 did some photo editing
 thank you
 topaz labs
 for
 fixing the issue
 i had 
with
 details 3
 after
 the new
iOS
mavericks
 upgraded
 my iMac and iPhoto 

now
 some of that salad with leftover fried chicken 
and a glass of wine

tomorrow
 sunday
 my indulgent weekly mani/pedi at polished

 maybe a red?

 we'll see
 looking forward to the court being on recess monday for veteran's day

what are you up to?

  1. Reading your blog - and enjoying it. Sounds like a relaxing weekend in the city. Yes, red. The holidays are coming.

  2. Sweet you have Monday free this week! I enjoyed listening, and like that shot your camera took. Nice effect.

  3. The fire escapes on the buildings there fascinate me! I'm busy making Sunday lunch for us, my MIL, youngest son and two grandsons. One of my blog friends, Ron (Vent http://www.triloquist.net/), is hoping to come to NYC when we are there and I wondered if maybe we could all meet up together and I could introduce you? Ron likes the idea. He's a keen photographer like you. x

  4. You know, that's one difference I notice so strongly between Britain and North America, and I bet NY is even more extreme, the people in Britain apologise profusely, explain the situation beforehand and bend over backwards if they have made a mistake, (generally), and people in N A feel they have some sort of a right to bad behaviour, never take the blame and don't take nearly as much care, (generally). What's that all about?

  5. I'm wanting to spend a little time up in The City (SF) before the holidays. I need to find someone to care for all these critters so I can do that. Bad coffee? There is no excuse for that. Better stick with someplace tried and true. Enjoy your Sunday!

  7. I'm in for weekend--allergy/head cold crud. Getting a bit done here and there around the studio apartment. Looking forward to surely feeling better on Tuesday when I return to work. I like the perspective here.

  8. Yesterday, I picked up and cleaned in anticipation of keeping 2 of the grands overnight. Today we have played Lego, space, cowboys, dolls and raked leaves. After one wakes from her nap, we will visit a nearby park before I take them home. Tomorrow I recuperate. Thank goodness I'm off.

  9. Finding lots to do inside this weekend, since the weather has been pretty awful. :-(
    Got lots done though.
    Enjoy your day off tomorrow! :-)

  10. My phone took a photo of my knee this week...all on its own! HA! I like the angle of that shot though with all of the windows and detail. Your phone did good!

    Doing the usual around here, cleaning and catching up on household chores. Puttered with the chickens and did a little coop cleaning. Farm chores are never done! Weather has been nice, in the mid 60's. Enjoying it while it lasts!
