I Have an Ear Infection!

Can you believe it? I thought felines don't get infections. Irritating, I tell you! Hope you all are doing well and staying cool!

What Did You Do this Weekend?

We had a busy weekend! On Saturday, we:

- Took Ruby to the vet. She was quiet while the tech was giving her vaccinations and drawing blood, but howled like a wolf when he cleaned her ears.

- Went to Brooklyn Indie Market, where my friends from wax carving class were selling their beautiful jewelry.

- Several more people from class came to the market; from there we headed to a bar and watched the U.S. exit the World Cup. :(

- Headed to South Sea Port for dinner and fireworks!

- While we were looking for a spot at South Sea Port, I had a bright idea that it would be much better to watch fireworks from the Brooklyn Bridge. We rushed there and 45 minutes later made it just in time for the fireworks. They were majestic!!! We also enjoyed unbelievable views of NYC.

On Sunday, we:

- Picked up the best lox spread bagels in the whole of NYC and headed to the park.

- After enjoying a delicious breakfast, I took Husband's pictures for a portrait assignment for my photography class. It was 90 degrees, we were sweating, but Husband complained only a little and patiently let me take all the pictures I wanted. A gold star for Husband!

- I also took pictures of these gorgeous hydrangeas.

- Got home and cleaned.

- Went grocery shopping.

I am exhausted and need another two days off! How about you? What did you do this weekend?

Boo to JCrew!

Look at this lovely top.

Don't you love it?

The description online says: 100% silk.

I buy it. It arrives.

I read the tag:

Shell: 100% Silk
Lining: 100% Polyester

JCrew, why oh why would you line a silk top with polyester?!

If you are going to ruin a perfect silk top, at least say so in the description.

Ruby is a Porcupine

I am taking a photography class! Want to see my results? These two are my favorite photos so far. Who knew Ruby is a porcupine? In the second picture, it looks as if I am taking her picture through a prism. I am not. She looks a bit mean in it too. She is not.
