Just a quickie post to show you a bit of what we bought in NYC. We aslo made a quick stop at Old Navy and picked up a few clothes. Usually, I buy underwear while I am away, but this trip, I just didn't have time. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up some drawers in Boston at the end of the month.
It's a mix of sun and cloud here today. Very nice out when the sun is shining. The dogs have been out on the deck for a couple of hours now, just taking in the fresh air. They will sleep well tonight. I raked one bag of kulch off the lilies and rhubarb in the back yard. Things are just starting to poke their heads up out of the soil... We still have a fair amount of snow in the back yard, but another week should put an end to that.
Did my 21 k in the bike today (so nice to have a 4-day weekend!) and cleaned up the house a bit. Brad has a concert tonight (he sings in two choirs - he's a tenor with a great voice). We are also expecting a friend from out of town to visit tonight and tomorrow. Will be great to see him.
Wishing everyone a great weekend and a Happy Easter (even if you are heathens, like us!) :)
We actually brought home two bottles of the Pinotage (first one on the left). The next one is from the same vineyard, but a slightly less expensive bottle. The third one (far right) is a Brunello from Tuscany.
Opera Playbill, ticket, and MetroCard. I bought a weekly pass for the Metro ($25 US) as we took the subway a lot.
All of this stuff below was free except for the 2009 Time Out Eating and Drinking Guide. It was about $11 and will be an invaluable resource for our next trip to the Big Apple.
AKEA purchases (chocolate and coffee) and Vanilla Coconut BodyScrub from Sabon. It's really amazing stuff. Salt from the Red Sea, doncha know. Your skin is VERY soft after using the product (and you smell good enough to eat, to boot!)
