This weekend.

I wore ruby red lipstick everywhere we went. I baked a dozen blueberry muffins before church this morning. We wandered the Upper West and stumbled upon a great coffee shop and a little farmers' market. Husband started to teach Gus how to catch (he's learning, but all of those wrinkles get in the way). We had a date at Chelsea Grill on Saturday night. We took Gus to the dog park, where he spent half of the time hiding behind our legs. I woke up early and wished I hadn't, because the nest of quilts next to husband looked so terribly inviting.

And I thought a lot about work. About travel. About this time in our lives and how these days need to be longer. About a lot of silly things and other not-so-silly things. About how lucky I am to get to spend weekends with my very best friend and our very handsome pup.


  1. I love tulips, especially the pink ones!

    Too funny about Gus hiding at the dog park, maybe he will make some doggy friends next time. :P

  2. doesn't red lipstick make weekends that much more fun?


  3. That red stick looks like it's been made for you! And what a great weekend but the sounds of it. My favourite thing to do is have brunch on Sundays. Have a great week!

  4. Those are some lovely looking muffins & it sounds like a beautiful weekend! AND I agree...we wish our days were a little longer too :)
