On Fridays I hear people at work say "T G I F" and I feel like saying "T G I Have a Job." This Friday I rode my bike down to my new job at the advertising agency. This Hudson River Park used to be a deserted parking lot. People were opposed to this park. Why? Because it ceded power over the land to the Port Authority which can do what it wants. So far I haven't seen any bad developments, and this park is a spectacular improvement over a deserted parking lot. These trees get bigger every year; that's the beauty of trees!
This is one of the views from the offices where I work, with the Hudson River and New Jersey beyond. I walk around all day amazed by the views.
After a week of work and a trip to the gym I decided to treat myself/us.
To cupcakes and roses. I won't tell you how much four cupcakes cost, you'll think I'm insane. But that's the point of a treat isn't it? Extravagance. Soon there will be a cold glass of pinot grigio, and sushi, delivered, and we'll be on our way to a happy holiday weekend.
Treat yourself too, and have a happy Memorial Day.
