Scenes From The Weekend
We were out adventuring this weekend. First, on Saturday, after a visit to the nursing home to see my nana (another kind of adventure in itself). We spent a few hours in the town of Nyack, where we ate a burrito lunch, popped into a local chocolate shop, and strolled along the Hudson River shoreline. It was windy, but not quite enough to temper the sticky air.
On Sunday, we spent the day exploring in the New York Botanical Gardens with friends. It was fun to visit my old stomping grounds: I attended undergrad at Fordham University, just across the street. Despite the 100% humidity index, I immensely enjoyed myself and the time with the flowers and greenery. I'm still editing those photos, so what you're seeing is mostly from Saturday, along with a glimpse at my newest piece of art--an original fruit print from the 1930's. It seems appropriate, as fruit is about the only thing satiating me in this heat. Sunday night's rainstorm helped a little, but I still slept with one leg out and the air conditioner cranked up high. I find myself yearning for a forty degree temperature drop and the excuse to curl up inside all day and not feel a lick of guilt about it.
How was your weekend?
