*exhale*

and a Quick recap of Saturday before we Dash out (merrily) into the brightness of a sunday to be very sociable (surprisingly so – we seemed to have booked a breakfast, morning coffee, walk in the park, drive to somewhere-to-be-helpful, tea and some Diego-time, then another meeting-up-with-friends – blimey)

last night we happened to be in Los Feliz and saw a large pair (too large, actually) of retro circular blue glass in white frames sunglasses in the window of a Vintage Store and Popped in to say hello, try them on, sadly reject them, but make a new Instagram friend. 296ee804b78e11e3b9060e0eee734f32_8

just before that we had a lovely long Telephone call with william in england when, suddenly, there was a VAST SHUDDERING and we interrupted him talking about the new garden turf over at the Essex Street Pleasure Gardens to say in a small voice:

um, gosh, william – there’s another earthquake.

and it was ever so nice to be on the phone with someone (with a reassuringly deep basso profundo voice) until the shaking passed.

the pleasures and pains of living in paradise darlings ;-)

the constant sunlight delights – and yet there are movements beneath the earth’s crust that tell us very Clearly that we Live ON A Fault Line. eek.

moving swiftly on.

we popped in to skylight books to visit their copies of the book and *giggled* with a tiny blush to the (apple) cheeks to see it is reclining lusciously next to the naughty section. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a fresh pair of DMs was bought.

the other daywear pair (as opposed to special occasion patent leather one for night-time and Interview purposes) were a Disgrace and we are heading back to England on Thursday (red-eye – the gods protect us from crazy jet-lag) and Must be Suitably Shod. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the sky has been resplendent thus far this weekend. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

admiring the buildings off the shore that resemble 1930s Ocean-Going-Liners. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAsurfboards on road warrior sales VP vehicles abound as soon as the weekend hits Town.

are you enjoying the Vivaldi?

it just says SUNDAY, doesn’t it?

*happy_sigh*

must apply mascara (lightly) and get into the car (no surfboard but plenty of writing paper in the console between the driver’s seat and the passenger seat where the messenger bag rides nestled with a small sandwich bag of grapes for the journey – that’s for us, not the messenger bag – it prefers plums).

*waving*

 

eat, pray, love, bubbles, parcels, fierce footwear, caffeine, paranoia, medical bills = wednesday.

hello darlings.

it’s wednesday.

isn’t it?

the throat aches with a vengeance now (scar tissue? problems? chill wind descending on manhattan? breathing re-constituted air inside a skyscraper all day?)

who knows. actually the surgeon will (if it’s physical rather than spiritual) and we see him tomorrow at 3pm. so we’ll let you know..

in the meantime, this is our wednesday so far – do describe yours!

we were a Bit Gloomy upon awakening: so blew bubbles while the synthroid kicked in and the coffee percolated

listening to eat pray love with the utterly delicious elizabeth gilbert reading it herself made applying mascara ever so nice. felt like she was with us, reading to us (although our manhattan bathroom is Awfully Small so she’d have to have been sitting on the side of the bath but still, Awfully Sweet image.

TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS poorer now :-( #medicalbills

gasp. for. air.

sent a parcel (we Adore a Parcel) to the lovely Stacy Morrison (yes, we do know her in RL, we’re not being strange and stalk-y ;-) it’s one of our decoupages and it reminds us of the bit in her book when she talks about moving to the big city to become a glam-and-glossy-magazine-editor.

en route to the subway: caffeine and paranoia (new york observer mental health issue)

then AT the office (at last – <ahem>) we just had the Most Fabulous meeting at the Day Job today with a glorious young woman who wore such Fierce Footwear (see pic)

we have never worn such spikey-cool-heels (while sober) but she walked with an Attitude that a drag queen would die for.

of course, we prefer doctor martens – like these – especially the shiny ones.

and it’s only just lunchtime (tummy growling) so we’re going to nip out to forage for something comforting (that isn’t bread – sigh – yes, we’ve been skating close to the edge with the “spelt” and “sprouted wheat” that is So Dangerous for us…..just felt like sharing. please don’t judge. or if you do. please Be Kind (we’re Very Sensitive) ;-)

tell us about your Wednesday!
