I am having a lovely time in New York. The weather has been nice and I have been busy every day with many activities and distractions. I have seen some lovely people, had some good snacks, purchased some nice things for my home and did a little damage at the A.P.C. surplus store where I found a few things from last winter for very cheap. So what if they're from a season a whole year behind?
It's been so good to get away from home. I have found myself dreaming of not returning to Seattle, not to live in New York (I never would want to- that dream has passed), but to live elsewhere. Maybe Germany? After all, I did tell myself that if a particular thing in my life didn't work out the way I'd hoped it would, then I would flee to Germany for a while to recoup and repair. Perhaps I could go WWOOFing there, or be a nanny for a family in Munich? Well anyway. New York City is a place for dreaming, and that's certainly what I've been trying to do; hope for my future and have good faith that everything will be okay, even though I don't feel very okay right now.
My sister and I are off to the Natural History Museum, but first, we are going to make one last stop at Babycakes (I wrote about this place so long ago and now I've finally gotten to experience it) for a delicious biscuit with cream and jam. We will be meeting our new friend, Vicki there who is actually from Munich, so I will have to smother her in questions!
I hope everyone had a lovely week. I'll be back with photos and stories very soon.
