Yesterday was such a good day! I don't have classes on Fridays, so I like getting lots of work done so I can have at least a bit of free time on the weekend. I usually head over to 'Snice (on West 4th and 8th) in the morning. Usually this guy is sun-lounging on the outside stand of a flower shop on the way over, like he was yesterday. Which just completely makes my morning.
When I get to 'Snice, my favorite table is the one in the front window. It was taken when I first got there yesterday, but I strategically positioned myself to be able to see when it became available and then nabbed it. (Yes, it is kind of an involved process. What can I say, I really like that table. It's sunny and if the door is propped open there's a nice breeze.)
I read a good amount of the first two acts of A Midsummer Night's Dream for my (awesome) Shakespeare class, but I was getting warm and sleepy, so I went over to the High Line to finish reading and do the response questions. It was such a good day for seat-getting, I was able to snag one of the wooden lounge chair things, which are usually full (and which were swarmed a few minutes after I got there-- yay for unplanned good timing!)
I was in the water-feature area, which is lovely because it softens the noise of the city, and little kids get all excited and run around in it. The chair-ish thing that I was on was surrounded by greenery on three sides and it felt like a private little reading nook.
hope you had a wonderful Friday too!
