Scenes From The Weekend
I found myself with a couple of hours to kill before meeting a former student for a playdate, so I decided to walk across central park, where blue skies, golden leaves and the most overwhelming sense of gratitude for New York City consumed me. Recently, it's been somewhat of a tumultuous relationship between this city and I, but at 2:00 in the afternoon on one of Autumn's most beautiful days, it was difficult to feel anything but unbridled appreciation.
After a joyous reunion with a very special four-year-old, I raced home to freshen up and then, on the arm of my love, attended a small dinner party where we feasted on lasagna and cherry pie while fussing over our friend's brand new rescue puppy. Sunday involved Thanksgiving-related errands, Nat King Cole on repeat and a few household projects and chores.
Now, it's two days of work and then...family and feasting! I can almost smell the stuffing...
