Winding Down or: Scenes from a Long Weekend

A sleepy Sunday night at the end of a weekend full of food, weird warfare fireworks, closet cleaning, listening to the new Beck record and five extra pounds. Astoria looked especially pretty tonight. [Sky photos taken with BF's Blackberry]


So, on Thursday, this little kid ran into me while he was riding his bike. I gave him a stern look and a "PLEASE watch where you are going!" but listen, he was like, six. What was I supposed to do? Here's the damage (This is primarily for my mom because she was on the phone with me when it happened):


Then I went home and flipped channels until I came to Les Demoiselles de Rochefort on IFC, which was beautiful and French and full of crazy costumes. And songs. Crazy rhyming songs. I didn't get to watch the whole thing, but here's picture from one scene to give you an idea:


We got around to cleaning the bedroom this weekend because it had reached red level:

And then we went grocery shopping and out to dinner...

looking at the lovely sky the whole time:

It always feels so good once you've completed a cleaning job.

Woo hoo! Congrats on the clean-and-purge. Hardly a thing in the world more satisfying, if you ask me. And you are SO CUTE in that little black frock.

I'm scared of kids on bikes! Two little girls almost got me in the park the other day.

I spent the 4th passed out, but the inside of my eyelids looked a lot like that sky.
