I Love the (Quiet) Night Life

I've returned to my more regular schedule after last week's whirl of theater going.

What's a regular night? I left work and got a ride to a subway station in Brooklyn to check out a health food store that I like very much and to look at the Hallmark store. Then I took the subway to my neighborhood, during which trip I read the 'Science' section of the NY Times and did today's crossword. I like doing crossword puzzles a lot, and look forward to my train ride home and the puzzle. I walked the four blocks to my building from the subway, stopping at the grocery on the way home and buying two bottles of flavored water, melon mango, which is my new favorite. Had curried chicken for dinner, which I'd cooked over the weekend and blueberries for dessert. Read the mail, read email, and downloaded pictures. Thrilling? No. Priceless? Yes! There are a lot of blessings in this one quiet night and I am grateful for all.

"The Marvelous Wonderettes" was adorable and I enjoyed it very much. The four women in the play had great voices and it was so much fun to hear '50s and '60s music. It's a cream puff of a show, light and sweet and very enjoyable.
Sweet dreams, gentle readers! Wishing you sunny days and quiet evenings.

They closed our Hallmark store. Sounds like your evening was heaven. Mine too. Worked on my novel. Cleaning it up. Almost done. YAY! :)

Your night sounds like it was very enjoyable! Quiet, I like that, too. Really, a peaceful evening with blueberries on top -- who could ask for more?

Dear Buttercup,
Thank you for your prayers for Amy and Leila. I cannot imagine living in New York. My daughter and myself are very artsy and I love plays. I have never been on a subway or been to a place that even had a sunway...are the people friendly...is the noise level high...
I love hearing about the plays you have been to...the restuarants...art exhibits
I like that you have resolved to see the good in people and things around you
enjoy your blog very much
