Stop and Smell the Flowers

Just a few steps from Carnegie Hall...

And a few less steps from a new favorite fun restaurant...

is my little oasis. 

I took a slightly different route home last night and found myself walking up West 57th Street towards the bus. I've walked this block many times, but hadn't noticed this little oasis right in the center of Manhattan. It was the perfect place to stop, rest, read some pages of "South of Broad" and smell the flowers. I had a lovely time reading and just enjoying being outside at the start of the weekend. 

Today continued the theme -- stop, rest and read. I did a few errands, too, but it has been a totally relaxing day. I'm still reading "South of Broad" so my thoughts will have to wait for next week -- or the week after. I'm enjoying it more as I keep reading and I'm not in a big rush to finish it. I've got more scheduled for tomorrow, including a very fun event. And yes, there will be pictures. 

There's just about 24 hours left to enter the Yoplait giveaway. Comments may be left on the June 1 post through tomorrow night. Don't be shy -- the prize is great.

Wishes for a great Sunday!

For some reason I've never made it to the "Carnegie Deli". I've been told it is very good! Oh well...maybe next trip?

What a pretty little area :) I think with all those tall buildings, I'd need to see a little green once in a while!
