Days Off

I’m not a super social person.  My Sundays are usually spent sleeping in, creating and eating a glorious breakfast, lounging & cleaning, going to dance class, a bit of cooking for the week, and lots of homework.  Today was slightly different – there was no homework involved.  What? Yes.  I still have two more days off school for silly national holidays, so I took the day to just chill a bit.  I wish I could say I went to an awesome party or something, but the things I do aren’t generally that exciting.

Saturday’s fast went rather well (I slept most of the day), and I broke my fast that evening with some Jewish deli food – bagels, etc.  And about an hour after I was hungry again, so a friend and I went to 16 handles, for $8 worth of self-serve froyo.  I wish I had taken a picture!

Today was much of the same Sunday routine, except I decided to go on a little adventure – with or without company.  It was actually really nice to walk just walk around the city by myself.  I didn’t have to worry about timing, or anyone else – and I did some quality people watching and photographing.  I’ll let the pictures do the talking:

I went to the High Line Park! It's an old rail track that's no longer in use, and was converted into an elevated park.

the standard hotel at the high line - this building is right on it! some great views 🙂

Of course, I stopped for a green juice, as there was a juice bar right by the stairs to the park. Perfectly refreshing!

Gelato on the high line - this place looked so good! But I wasn't in the mood, and didn't have enough cash. Next time.

the tracks are still in tact, they did the landscaping around them

more cool buildings

...and a green elevator?

the best part - sunset over the Hudson River. Oh hey, New Jersey!

I also did a bit of cooking 🙂  Which recipe to post first… one with squash? or with chocolate…

Did you do / cook / eat anything interesting this weekend?

Do you ever go on solo adventures?

  1. That looks like a perfect day right there. Love all the photos! I’m not very social either, and so a day of walking around and eating good food is how I’d prefer to spend a day off too.
    I’m glad to hear your fast went well. I’m impressed by the 8 dollars worth of fro-yo. Yum!

  2. These are such pretty photos, some of those buildings are pretty nuts! I am also a person who prefers to be alone and goes on solo adventures quite often. I can’t decide if this is a “good” thing or not, the fact that I like being alone more often than not… but for now I think it is just fine
