For the end of March and the beginning of April, we were blessed with beautiful weather on Sundays. Unfortunately, I ended up either straightening up the apartment or laying about making brunch of most of the early afternoon… followed by imitating a beached whale and napping thereafter.

This weekend, though (?!?!) was different! I was determined to go out. On Thursday and Friday I anticipated a beautiful Saturday and made my plan known.


Thus, Saturday was a marvelous day of just wandering around downtown. We met up with Ryan’s sister for Brunch. She invited us to go horseback riding with her and her friend, but I was in a dress and I planned to go shopping and sit in a park. (I was, really, a bit torn. Next time, I will be all up on that…)

From Union Square we went to Great Jones Cafe for their supposed awesome brunch. It was tasty, but it was no Huevos Rancheros at Life Cafe in Brooklyn. They did have an AMAZING Cajun Bloody Mary.

We strolled over to Soho and visited 4 shoe shops, to no avail. SHOES. SHOES. THOSE SHOES RULE. THOSE SHOES SUCK. THOSE SHOES RULE… THOSE SHOES SUCK!!!! I was sorta kinda looking at sandals. Finally, heading up town from Houston, we saw Miz Mooz next to a Game Stop… and that is where I picked up a comfortable strappy flat sandals that are pretty damn cute.

After that, we parked ourselves on Madison Square Park and did like trees… and soaked up all of the sunshine into our non-chlorophylled bodies… Swayed a bit. You know, the whole bit. I tried to convince Ryan to get Shake Shack, but he grumbled something about Jambalaya Brunch… In the end we hung out by the dog park and covetted puppies! PUPPIES! I WANT PUPPIES!

SO… no puppies. I did pick up some yarn at Union Square market, did some grocery shopping, and then headed back into Brooklyn.

I don’t knwow where my productivity came from. Obviously I am related to some sort of plant-form, because I took one look at our filthy apartment and mopped, scrubbed, and swept. I cleaned the bathroom, I tidied up the living room, scrubbed the stove, did the dishes, and I cracked the whip on Ryan too.

: D All in a days work.

In the evening we went to the (link) Bushwick Starr for some William Blake, piano music by our friend Jessica playing Ravel’s Histoires Naturelles, Poulenc’s Le Bestiaire, and Caplet’s Trois Fables de Jean de la Fontaine.

Then we invited everyone back for a nightcap our newly cleaned apartment. : )
