3 on Thursday

Everyone around here is anxious to kick off their 4th of July weekends a bit early, and I am no exception.  I can't wait to leave work and finish up a few last minute errands before a little date night.  Then tomorrow it's party time!  Now that the fireworks are back on the East River, I've planned a little shindig on my rooftop where relaxation is the name of the game.

  1. I dug into my treats from Myers of Keswick on Tuesday night and now realize they won't last long.  Both cookies - I'm sorry, "biscuits" - were very different from what we have here.  The Hobnobs (great name for the "nobbly oaty biscuit") weren't too crunchy (phew: I like my cookies like I like my boyfriend's heart, soft) and I like that they have a dark chocolate variety since everything in the US seems to be milk choc focused.  The caramel wafer cookies may have looked like a Kit Kat but the texture was softer, like a Belgian waffle.  Plus, I'm a sucker for such great packaging.
  2. One of the best ways to beat a case of the Mondays is to do something extra fun on what is typically the lamest night of the week.  I headed to Central Park to see Counting Crows at Summer Stage and it was a total throwback to middle/high school.  They're still great.
  3. The Empire State Building was lit up in all the colors of the rainbow for Pride this past weekend.  While I didn't get to take my Mom to the West Village for the parade on Sunday because of her flight time, she could tell that there was some craziness brewing in the city and loved being surrounded by that energy.
