Today was a great day – beautiful weather, beautiful day!
After teaching my middle school drama class I took a break with some knitting buddies in Maplewood, then on to Brooklyn to visit a shop, Red Lipstick that I had read about on the internet.
Let me tell you, this shop is fabulous. Tiny, yes, but lots of cool stuff – lots of fun pins, watches, hand and machine knit items (natch) and a proprietress who is a blast. Visit this store, it’s worth a look!
Then a much too short visit to a good friend, Sue, in Brooklyn and home again on the 9:38 train – I didn’t make it to the Mad Hatters meeting in NYC (my reason for going into the city to begin with!) but I’m slowly learning to pace myself and not to be too hard on myself when I don’t achieve everything I set out to do. Besides, it was just so gorgeous today!
Today was also Hannah’s first ever baseball game (minor league Newark Bears, a home game) She went with her summer camp and, from reports, was a little bored by the whole thing. I should have taken her with me!
