The next morning was lovely and in an effort to achieve the top goal on my living list -- becoming trimmer and fitter -- I started the day at the physical therapy/exercise facility I've been going to. In some ways that's the most important item on my living list and it felt great to begin the day with exercise. It kept my eating very focused for the rest of the day and I felt so good doing something so good for me.
The evening was pure fun! I met friends for a drink at The Campbell Apartment. Former offices of a early 20th century business tycoon it is a posh place for a drink. It is very crowded during the week, but perfect on a Saturday night in the summer.
We exited these doors at Grand Central Station...
To go up these stairs...
To slip into the world of Jay Gatsby.
This picture is not the Campbell Apartment, but a cubicle in Queens transformed into a wonderful birthday setting. My colleague Donna baked her delicious lemon bars and the cake stand is waiting for a red velvet cake from a terrific bakery in Brooklyn. A million calories and worth every one of them! My colleagues at work could not have been sweeter or more thoughtful.
Thanks, too, for the wonderful posts and good wishes. I will be around to visit my blog friends and say thank you for birthday thoughtfulness and your friendship. Wishing you lots of sunshine!
