A dear longtime NJ based friend came to NYC today
to spend the afternoon with me!
We started with lunch with Mr Husband,
then went to Lion Brand Studio,
then to get a new (pink!) cart for me
(she helped me decide on which one and I am so glad I got the
one I did get!..the last picture above is the place I bought it from
and the red cart I had before that)
and then we went to Tea and Sympathy, boy did I need that respite,
then we went to Purl Soho and then walked back,
got a bit turned around (a lady told us incorrect directions)
and had a lovely time walking and talking!
It was SO HUMID today here (and for NYC)...
I admit I bought a new purple bandana just so I could
deal with the result of such heat
(humidity, sun = I was drenched with perspiration,
reminded me of L'Engle's book
the other side of the sun when the main character
has to be in full outfit for an outing and her clothes were so wet
because of the oppressive heat that they had to be wrung out,
it was not that bad for me but I still was reminded of this!)
We also stopped at a Trader Joes on Spring Street that I had not
been to before and I got a few things that will get us through the next while...
It was a really fun day!
Then I ate dinner at the diner and then Mr Husband, who ate at work,
came and we went home...
did our prayers while waiting for light rail (20 minutes)
and a nice cool bubble bath by candle light was the perfect finish of
such a lovely lovely day!
(And of course, by the time we were waiting for the train home,
my Husband was saying, "so you had lots of girl time?!" just like
I had told my dear friend he would!)
I have various friends with such difficult struggles,
many medical in nature.
So many to pray for.
I pray and hope that no matter what you are facing,
that God's mercy, strength and comfort will carry you.
