Better Than Last Year
Saturday I spent the day with an old friend. We checked out the two exhibits at FIT. The main one, Japan fashion was not my cup of tea. Their fashions are just too strange and box like for my taste. The other one, His and Her, is a comparison of male and female fashions from the 1700's until today. This one is worth the trip. We then hiked over to 68th and Park, to the Spanish Institute and saw the Balenciaga exhibit--worth the $15 admission. Today, my husband and I saw seeing Flying Karamazov Brothers which was a lot of fun. Not one for fancy meals, we had pizza at John's in the village, hot chocolate at Grom's Gelato (dark chocolate with chocolate chip ice cream) and then dinner in the car from Prosperity Dumplings. (A $2.00 meal of vegetable sesame pancakes makes me happy.)
As I get older, I've learned to take nothing for granted. I know I have fewer years left than have already passed so I better take advantage of every one while I still can.
