Not super private (in more ways than one), but the view is fun and the water is warm!

The tide and ships roll in.
Master always says he would never get anything done working in my apartment –
he would be too busy watching the World roll by.

dievca is off of work, again, on a Saturday.
Maybe she’ll wear lipstick for her workouts.
dievca is off of the electric scooter (borrowed from a friend),
back on to her bike (hills are tough),
walking upstairs (not down),
and moving more freely.
Not quite – unless its in her water aerobics class.
How are you doing?

Is that OZ in the distance?
No. New Jersey.
When that I was and a little tiny boy,
With hey, ho, the wind and the rain,
A foolish thing was but a toy,
For the rain it raineth every day …

As dievca made her way to the composting area along the Hudson River there was a double blossom rosebush that gave off the most delightful of smells:
The composting guy has a passion for what he does and he explained the various plants grown by the volunteers to the Hudson Riverway Park. In return, dievca was able to share the breakdown of corn starch packing materials via composting –> Carbon Dioxide and Water…

Getting to Times Square is a trick when you can’t ride your bike because of the thunderstorms.
Getting a cab is a trick when it’s raining and your PT session is at 7 pm in Times Square.
dievca was opting for a canoe.

Sometimes it is a reach to collect yourself for the day,
dievca was having a little bit of trouble today.
“We roamed the fields and river sides,
When we are young and gay;
We chased the bees and plucked the flowers,
In the merry, merry month of May.”

dievca spent 1.5 hours in the James A. Farley Main Post Office NYC standing in line for customs forms, filling them out, and paying for the shipments. At least the scenery was lovely – the renovations are complete:

Not quite sure what the graffiti is depicting – but its adorning a Midtown West abandoned building.

Not as bad as Long Island or Boston – but blowing snow and drifting in NYC.

dievca would like to drop everything and sit by a beach.
There is a house to clear, a house to sell and work to complete. Money that was spent on a previous trips, so its not readily available. Add COVID restrictions. And a body that is showing the ravages of no time for workouts, stress and perimenopause. But, everyone has problems and everyone would like to disappear on Holiday – right?
dievca will just dream and push through~

It seems like everyone dievca knows is skiing… In Upstate NY, a friend flew to Austria, another friend will be heading out to Tahoe, CA. How can dievca get on that train? She would really like to go to Banff or Whistler in Canada. Nah, probably not in the cards this year after that 3 week vacation out West.
But it would be really fun to go skiing!
Is anyone planning to ski any time soon?
Allow yourself to Dream!

to the West Coast. Rain in Sedona, AZ – Taos, NM – Albuquerque, NM – Flagstaff, AZ squirted dievca back to the West Coast. Maybe dievca is a “rainmaker”. Those rains were mostly good soaking rains (except for Flagstaff), not enough to help with the drought, but better than nothing.
This afternoon should offer some sun. Stay cool, stay dry! XO
