No embroidery this week because I’ve had company and a pretty bananas week all around.
I went to Brooklyn Flea over the weekend. This is the view of Manhattan from the Williamsburg waterfront, where they host the flea market.
While I was there I bought this adorable towel now hanging in my kitchen. Look at that fat little penguin!
Then I video chatted with my family and we talked a bout Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, our Family Book Club! Our next book is Icy Sparks by Gwyn Hymen Rubio (Kindle version here). I’ll post our discussion soon!
I also started reading Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi for real life book club at Word bookstore, and that killed any chance of productivity I had for my unscheduled time. It’s so charming and I really like it so far.
Then I had company come in for the weekend. Here’s our remnants from Sleep No More. Sleep No More is a live performance/art installation that takes up five floors of an old warehouse in NYC. You walk around the set, which is huge, and actors perform a play across different rooms and floors of the “Hotel McKittrick.” No description I’ve heard does it justice–it’s crazier and bigger and more everything than what you expect. I highly recommend going if you get the chance.
Then we went to brunch and a baseball game. The Yankees beat the Blue Jays 5-4 while we enjoyed beer, onion rings, and gorgeous weather.
So it’s been a little busy around here. It’s been an absolute blast but I haven’t been able to catch my breath yet!
