We’re having a great time visiting New York City. My stepdaughter, Sarah, lives in Queens, so we get out here from time to time. Since we visit fairly often, we don’t need to rush around and see all the major sights. Instead, we meander, going where the mood strikes us.
This time, we met a new member of the family: Mason the dog. Mason is a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix who was rescued from a home with 60 other dogs during a recent Staten Island house fire. He’s a bit timid, but I get to play grandma and spoil him. Here he is with the dog sweater I made for him:
Yesterday, while hubby spent time with Sarah consulting with her on her business (she organized and runs the Ridgewood Market in Queens), I went to a neighborhood hair salon and got a makeover. I’m facing the double nickels b-day soon and felt the need for a new ‘do. Turns out it takes a LONG time to cover up gray hair! I’m notorious for not keeping up with these things, but I have to admit, I’m pretty happy with the look.
Monday night we went to see Big Fish on Broadway. Hubby knows this is one of my all-time favorite movies, so he grabbed tickets, even though the reviews weren’t great. I loved it! Last night we saw Buyer & Cellar, a wonderful one-man show with Michael Urie of Ugly Betty fame. Urie plays an unemployed actor who is hired to work in Barbra Streisand’s basement. It’s good, silly fun!
We’ve also visited the Museum of Chinese in America and the National Museum of the American Indian. In between, we are enjoying lots of ethnic food: Korean, Polish, and Italian (complete with gluten-free pasta).
We’ll be here a few more days, then off to Pennsylvania for a week or so before returning to the City.
