What I've Been Up To

Did anyone else suffer from the Daylight Savings Time change? I certainly did. 'Course, it didn't help that I was out late Saturday night, into Sunday morning.

Saturday was a very gray, wet day, and I spent most of my day in my apartment, working on a baby quilt for a child that was born last year (got to finish!). It was surreal sitting in my living room and looking out to see only clouds where there are usually tall buildings.

I finally got cleaned up and went to dinner in Brooklyn with my boss and his family. We had a lovely time, and after I left there, I didn't quite feel like going home. I found a pub near my apartment that I hadn't tried yet and stopped in for a beer. I soon found myself engaged in a conversation about the upcoming Presidential election with a couple of firefighters. NY firemen are in general an attractive group, but these two were both married. Anyway, we ended up playing pool, which I am pretty terrible at. Fortunately for me, they had been drinking for several hours, and I actually won a couple games. It was nice to just hang out and talk to people.

Sunday morning came MUCH too early, but at least it was no longer raining. After church and a phenomenal choir practice (we are sounding GOOD), I walked around the city for about 4 hours, finishing up my photography for the books I'm making for my nieces and nephews. Here's one pic I took...can you tell what neighborhood I was in?

Well it's not the upper West Side.
For sure, but there are no chickens hanging in the windows so it mustn't be Chinatown?
