Well and Cheaply Weekend



I think a rule of thumb for judging how good a first fall weekend went should have to do with how many picnics it included. Well, my weekend included two picnics.  One on Saturday at Storm King Art Center and one on Sunday in Central park.  Complete with fried chicken and cozy hoodies.  And FYI: I have decided fried chicken is a picnic new must.

I will now dump some photos on you, because the sky was just so blue and the clouds were just so white, and words, at the moment, appear to be escaping me.


Other things enjoyed and only captured in memories include brisket and good wine and conversation at Erika's house, going back to my first Zumba class in a while and having a great yoga class this morning.  Scrambled eggs, avocado and red pepper flakes (AKA hot seeds, as my dad calls them) on an Ezekiel English muffin for breakfast, splurging and having our apartment cleaned while we were out on Saturday, and of course, cat love, all the time, every time.

Sigh, it was a very well and cheaply time.  I'd love to hear how yours went in the comments!

    1. I know, it's kind of a show off season. We get it fall, you're amazing.

  3. I had a fall out with the hubby but fixing it involved a massive heart to heart which I think we were due anyway!

    It included laughing so hard that I thought I was going to throw up! I laughed and made a funny noise which made me laugh and then I tried to stop laughing which made me laugh more so I made the funny noise again - it went round and round for about 10 minutes I think!

    Two lots of tears but feel better today. Looking forward to lunch with a friend. Taking Our Sidekick to the dentist and then maybe going to Open Mic tonight - I think my weekend bled into Monday

  4. I love art gardens. Beautiful sky! I haven't had Popeye's chicken in years, but now I think I must go get some.

    1. I think it was my first time ever having Popeyes! I know the thing about art gardens is that it's a museum outside, so you don't have to feel guilty looking at art on a beautiful day :)

  5. That first photo reminds me of the glass church from Oscar & Lucinda. Beautiful.

    My weekend was quiet, my husband and I went shopping on Saturday and I found a beautiful second hand coat and sauce boat. On Sunday morning, we went for a walk and I took a lot of photos, and in the evening we had a barbecue. Probably the last of this summer.
