Woke up at 6 and couldn’t go back to sleep, so got up and tried to get my co-op shift covered for next week.

Tried to tame my hair.

Let Gogo drink from the tap a little….it seems to be the only place she likes to drink so I try to do this a few times a day.

Left the house by 6.45 am.

DSC_0076

Went to the office to pick up keys and check a couple of things on the computer.

Didn’t bother to turn on any lights. Seems appropriate for early morning to sit in the dark and watch the world wake up.

DSC_0078

Went to the bank to get cash.

DSC_0079

Got coffee.

DSC_0081

Picked up the dry cleaning.

DSC_0082

Scoured my cookbooks for things to make for dinner tomorrow, when we have 3 guests.

DSC_0083

Ate breakfast.

DSC_0084

Worked on my volcano cake.

DSC_0087

With a brief interruption to send my mother photos from Ireland (which she has repeatedly texted me about).

Boxed up the cake.

DSC_0003

Started to clean the kitchen, which always looks like a bomb hit after I made a cake.

DSC_0002

Took a car service to deliver the cake to the West Village.

DSC_0006

Back to the bank to deposit my cake check.

DSC_0005

Then to the Village office to print out some forms, which took forever because my work account only links to Brooklyn printers so I had to get various people involved.

Got on the train at Union Square…

DSC_0008

where this guy was rocking out. He was very good!

DSC_0009

Off the train at 51st.

DSC_0011

Got a cup of tea at Pret a Manger. These ladies saw my camera and asked if I was there to take pictures of them. Of course!

DSC_0012

Had to show an apartment in this building…

DSC_0013

but got there early so I sat in the slightly depressing yard, rested my very sore feet, and read the New Yorker.DSC_0014

DSC_0016

Then back on the train to Brooklyn.

DSC_0010

Stopped at home to change my shoes, then went to the co-op to shop for tomorrow’s dinner.

DSC_0020

So many veggies!

DSC_0021

Finished cleaning the kitchen.

DSC_0023

Let the cats out in the hallway to play.

DSC_0022

Made Irish soda bread.

DSC_0024

V. came home after having a drink with a friend, and we sat on the couch with the cats and chatted for a bit.

DSC_0027

Then bed!
