In previous years, I would take off on my own for a day for myself, to do as I please or not.
This year, I decided that I should take a whole week instead to celebrate, after making it safely through a half-century. (Hmmm … does that make one sound really old?) A relaxing day/week should be enough to get me through to the next year.
I started the weekend before actually, with the trip to Philadelphia for the Flower Show. As I had posted previously, the stand-out for me were these purple, blue and green orchids. So I’m giving them another day out in blog-land, for everybody to admire their beauty.
I wonder if I can get any of these out here?
Celebrating continued into the next week with a Broadway show for which I had bought tickets several months ago … only to find out that day’s performance had been cancelled due to a flood on the stage from a show the day before.
I had seen the first run on Broadway some twenty-some years before, so I thought it would be fun to watch the revival. Well, maybe some other time.
Since the show was cancelled, I played tourist for the day. Christopher said I blended in well with the crowd in Times Square, with the camera around my neck, stepping in front of people, taking pictures.
No singing naked cowboys, but there were a lot of other characters walking around
and a free performance …
After lunch, a trip to M&M World – that was a bit of a color overload for me, but it was fun anyway.
Can you imagine having a wall like this in your home? Or these bottles on your shelf? LOL !!
