Here Comes the Sun

I had a nice day today.

Brian was at NYU for a few hours so Ben and I ran errands around the neighborhood. We don't usually do that together and it was fun. Of course the fact that our rain marathon finally ended contributed to the good vibes all over the city.

First we bought stuff at an art supply store. Then we went to Whole Foods at Union Square and came across Drew Barrymore every time we turned into a new aisle. It's nice to know we share the same food groups.

We then proceeded to the green market across the street where we bought much needed indian corn, a gord and a miniature pumpkin. Ben immediately started lobbying that we take the extra long bus home so he could stand in the center accordian part when it turns onto Avenue A. It wasn't difficult to cave in on this request. I was loosing circulation in both my hands as I carried four bags and a large plastic art portfolio case that I purchased for Ben's artwork "archives".

Brian and Ben took off for the afternoon on the scooter,while I agreed to walk around with my sister while she went shopping. I spent $240 and I wasn't even three blocks from my house. Sure hope my husband isn't reading this post.

Then I went to the dog run and looked on compassionately as my dog Saki made multiple attempts at mounting Mario - another male dog. Saki is totally into Mario and Mario can't be bothered.

We've all been there.

Love Whole Foods. So cool you running into and shopping with Drew B. Whenever I am in the city I often have a celebrity sighting. Was in yesterday and saw Rosie O'Donnell. And the weather finally being sunny is soooooooooo wonderful.

What a great day. I never recognize celebrities. I could literally trip over one and I would just say excuse me and walk on. Or if I were in a particularly bad mood I might say watch where the hell you're going and walk on.

I wish we had a WF. My parents do in Michigan and my friend I went to see in June does in California. Why can't I have one!

It sounds like the best day.

What did you buy? I wanna see!

How is it that we live in the same neighborhood and you run into Drew Barrymore and never run into ME?

Sounds like a really great day. Especially the spending money part.
