Never-Ending Holiday

Haven’t really said much about what we’ve been doing for the past few weeks but as the MIL extended her stay so has our holiday mode. Today was a trip to the legendary Balthazar Restaurant in New York City.

We always start any trip with a long walk to take the A/D train.

The D train was throwing a hissyfit over the weekend so we had to change trains. Got here in the end!

Then we went to Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken.

Good stuff.. tender chicken and impossibly thin and crispy skin.

I then arrived home to find a box of this at home!! 🙂 Okay most of it is not for me… but still look at that super cool and cute free fun-sized thermometer they threw in! Picked up a chef alarm cos really that’s how I work in real life. That’s it! 🙂

Wasn’t feeling too good today but going out was a good move. Went downtown to Clinton Street Bakery, waited at Pause Cafe and went to Central Park for a walkabout.

Today was a cold day! In fact as I write this just past midnight, it looks like the temperature is dipping to 9 deg tonight. Had a pretty normal day, walked YX to school, had a croissant and a coffee at Joe and a birthday song from ZJ and JT over a video call.

We napped and then went to dinner at flat top.

I have taken so many pictures of as I pass it. Here’s one of them:

I had been missing my key for the past 2 days so when I arrived home and turned the key I noticed it had been latched. Weird. Opened it up carefully expecting maybe some bad company and found this bunch instead with a mille crepe cake from Lady M! 🙂

Was nice chatting into the evening. Left at about 2330 to go home. Washed up, basic packing 🙂 Good day.
