Wrap It Up. August 23 2013.

Jasper in Box Hammock

Aww, it’s Mr. Jasper.  I don’t know if any of you are familiar with the ways of cats, but this orange tabby has never met a box that couldn’t be lounged in. This particular box was approximately 1/3 too small for his husky build, but he assessed, wiggled and found a way to make it work, hammock-style.  The world is a nap surface.

It’s been a busy week, and I’m looking to forward to some quality putzing time on the New York City streets and my couch.  Earlier this week, I applied for yoga teacher training, which I have been thinking about for a long time.  And then I got in!  (Yay me!!) Plus ten grownup points.  And then I accidentally paid for it twice and threw my finances into a tizzy.  (Boooooooooo.)  Minus ten grownup points.  Rules for the weekend: Less money spending and less alcohol drinking.


Animals jumping on trampolines.  My favorite part is the Shiba Inu, who is analyzing the trampoline so hard he can’t possibly enjoy himself. Like, ugggghhh, if I only had the right tools, I could only fix this gosh darn broken floor and everything would be fine.

Have you guys seen Maisy and Lennon Stella on Nashville yet?  Their rendition of Ho Hey by The Lumineers is just the best, I can’t get over how talented and adorable they are.

Guys with fancy lady hair.

I’m trying to get the family to go to a new place in Flushing for dim sum.  I love our standby Dong Yi Feng, but sometimes you just want to try something new.  Any suggestions?

Have an amazing weekend! (Can you believe that summer is almost over??! Go outside!  Fly a kite! Tan!)

Love, Grace


Simple Is

Isn’t it amazing how things can go from crazy-hectic-stressful-panic inducing to super simple in just a blink of an eye?  I spent the first half of this week with this constant tight, hyper caffeinated feeling in my chest, and spastic amounts of sleep.  I blamed it on the iced coffee from the beautiful La Colombe (which I had no idea included a secret espresso shot), but since that was on Monday, I can’t quite convince myself it was the culprit.

Possible suspects: The pine needle bit in my finger that has been there for a week and half and just won’t come out.  Dating. (ding! ding! ding!)  Writing a business plan / starting a new business.  Planning a bachelorette party.  A mysterious 25K uptick in a small part of a large design project.  Making time for friends.  Accumulating dishes.

Anyway.  But here we have Rory.  He really likes the sun, and cat sized divots in the comforter.  His worst fear is vacuums.
