I woke up early on Saturday morning to meet my friend Liz in the Flower District. After stumbling upon the most beautiful sidewalk covered in pink petals in Astoria, I hopped on the train down to 28th Street to get to the market by 8 am. Liz and I perused the flowers in several shops before selecting our bouquets. I had never been to the Flower District before and was impressed by the selection and variety. Saturday afternoon I had two of my old students over to bake cookies and play board games. The girls won my baking afternoon through our annual Staffle Raffle fundraiser at school. We had a blast playing Uno and Clue while our cookies were in the oven. By Saturday night both Brian and I were exhausted, so we opted to order pizza and watch Parks and Recreation. On Sunday I watched several episodes of Gilmore Girls before spending the afternoon in Central Park. Everything was in bloom and so green! I found a little patch of grass in my favorite corner of the park and read until I was too hot to stay in the sun. How was your weekend?
