Home Again

I should have given you all fair warning that blog silence might be coming; I was positive I'd have time to blog on the road. Clearly not, so let's catch up a bit!
Mousie and I traveled east, spending time in NYC and Ocean City, NJ.
We saw knitbombing in Chelsea,
took a ferry to see the Statue of Liberty,
drank lots and lots of coffee,
saw Broadway shows on Broadway (!)
visited the New York Public Library (gasp!)
played in the Atlantic,
and came home with lots of Schriver's candy.

As summer's bounty starts to fade, the amount of iffy fruit in the fridge is rising. I seized on a smoothie as the perfect way to use up some of this waning produce without having to think to hard about how it looked in the package, and was really warming to the idea of a peach-raspberry-strawberry combo when I discovered we were out of yogurt.

So I had to do some creative substitution. Oh, darn!

Calloo, Callay

This morning I woke up to rain. Oh frabjuous day! I needed this break from the heat, the sun, the muggy air, and more sun.

Don't palm trees look nice against a backdrop of clouds?

The morning had a very back-to-school feel: me, tromping through the rain with a fresh haircut, wearing stiff jeans and yet-to-be scuffed sneakers. Fingers crossed this the beginning of the end of a frumious summer.
