"Me" time in the city

Late autumn morning on Park Ave

I meant to hop on the Third Avenue bus but ended up instead on the 6th, so I ended up taking the “scenic route”, getting off on 34th and Park Avenue and walked down to Grand Central.

Park Avenue is always a nice walk — and I had enough time to stop by a favorite church on 38th to say a little prayer, and snap this picture as I spied some trees still displaying the colors of autumn closer to my destination.

I had lunch with my friend, E.  No agenda — just to spend some “me” time, and help her get some ampalaya if she hadn’t yet.  I had fun.  It was a good way to spend a day to unwind, even if I have a long list of  “to-do”s.  Sometimes we just have to pause a while to just do something spontaneous, like deciding on the fly to have pad thai for lunch, and share a pint of banana pudding from Magnolia Bakery.

Day two of my week with the tyke.  (Conference in Vegas for his Dad.)  I am mentally getting to that point where I hope to put up the tree.  I had finally sent out my latest Artist Trading Card swaps.  Like I told E, I am withdrawing for the season from ATC swaps, as I try to get back to the shop.

I skipped a craft fair over the weekend because preparing for a craft fair would mean adding to the stuff I need to clear out for the holidays.  I figure I will get to it in the spring.

Meanwhile, I’ve to space to clear for the tree, Christmas cards to pull together and project to finish.  Soon.
