As I'm currently between jobs, I've been taking it easy the last few days. And they have been wonderful.
Wednesday was my last restaurant shift. On Thursday, I got coffee with the editor of Edible Manhattan / Edible Brooklyn, and then lunch with an old friend in town from New Zealand. Then I went swimming, did laundry, and worked on NC housing.
On Friday, I went to the Met. On the way there, I walked through Central Park.
|Sheep's Meadow in the morning|
|These bird-watchers were excited about a barn owl in this clump of trees. A different cluster of bird-watchers were excited about the same owl when I passed by the next day.|
|Happy Caro in sunny Central Park|
|The Met was spectacular, of course.|
|I loved this fountain (designed in the early 1900s).|
|I can't get enough of Monet.|
|I hate when people take cell phone pictures of the art, but I am one of those people.|
|This amiable old man read next to me for awhile. He was reading a biography about Einstein. When he left, he said "enjoy your perfect spot."|
|Sheep's Meadow in the afternoon|
|That evening, I went on a sunset run in Prospect Park.|
|Truly a perfect day.|
The next day, I met up with my long-lost cousins, whom I hadn't seen in 10? years.
|And then my friend Carson joined me <3|
I went to bed super early that night and slept many hours. I guess reading and lounging and catching up with friends and long-lost cousins can be tiring!!!
