I haven't been to Grand Central Station in over 20 years so I really wanted to stop by this trip. Lucky for us there was a Shake Shack and Magnolia Bakery. I enjoyed burgers and banana pudding! #episbackinthebigapple2016
I've been wanting to take the tram to Roosevelt Island for years and finally did it today! It was $2.75 each way (using a Metro Card) and so cool! Next I want to explore the island. #episbackinthebigapple2016 #iamenlargingthisphotoforsure
My friend Susannah Furr (who lives in Paris) emailed me this morning that they were in town and going to be looking at MIT today (her daughter Lizzy is interested in MIT) so we met up and I showed them around. I feel so lucky; I haven't seen Susannah since they moved away from Boston in 2002. She's so so so cool. #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever
I'm totally obsessed with this old observatory that I saw when Carolyn and I were out on the jet skis. We went back the next day to get as close as we could and I took more photos with my "big camera". I'm so curious about this building and I think it's so cool. I've ordered a 24x36 poster for my living room wall.
I asked my chauffeur driving me home (Becky Rebentisch) if we could stop at Lyndell's Bakery (6 small chocolate eclairs for me and six for her) and La Victoria for a steak and cheese torta and soda. I'm starving! They didn't mention any after-colonoscopy food restrictions (there are plenty before) but to go home and rest and not take care of anyone but me. #notaproblem #perkofbeingsingle #lookingoutfor#1
Maybe my brother Robes was looking over me. My favorite part is when I woke up and they asked if I wanted apple or cranberry juice and graham crackers or saltines. Gah. Cranberry juice and graham crackers please. #generalanesthesiaisok #sleepEPsleep #robespatton
Was I more excited about seeing the Temple or getting a cheesesteak?!? The cab driver waited for me and I got a cheesesteak "wiz wit". This hit the spot. I can't be in Philly and not get a cheesesteak.
I was born and raised in Van Nuys, California. I moved to Boston sight-unseen and have loved living in New England since that day when I said, "this apartment is OLD". My hobbies are antiquing, reading books and magazines (bring back Blueprint and Domino please), sewing, quilting, sightseeing, watching movies, and photography. I love the color red and have a retro red refrigerator (and kitchen aid mixer and ice cream maker and toaster and...) to prove it! I live in a converted high school and love decorating my loft condo (w/ 18 foot ceilings) that was formerly the auditorium. I have 3 brothers, 11 nieces and nephews, and a bus fleet of friends.
