last year was the summer of iced tea. this year, i've decided that it's going to be the summer of fresh. i'm going to take advantage of the bounty of the season and eat as many fresh fruits & vegs as possible. started with a warm pasta salad with red & orange peppers, cherry tomatoes, spinach & arugula. yum!

in addition to nashion, one of the highlights of last week's trip to nashville was the new spring 2009 skymall. enjoy a few fabulous items:
forget piggy banks; your modern offspring can have their very own ATM.
neck hurt? try a cat.
what garden couldn't use a trio of giant marmoset?
are we sure this is going to massage your head an not suck the brains out of your skull?
i've never been a fan of gummy things. gummy bears, gummy worms, etc. but i get it...you have to eat a lot of small gummies to feel satisfied.
admirable to create a larger size. but, 1/2 lb? and on as stick? coco loco.
also, good to know that they are handmade with gloves on.

a bit of brunch on the upper west side and then a wander through central park home...
(Mr.) Belvedere Castle.
Turtle Pond living up to its name.
The Great Lawn looking green (for now).
Happened upon an obelisk.
Post-modern sidewalk chalking.
Overheard: "Did you see that statue of the big Polish guy?"
Cedar Hill - one of my favorite spots in the Park - where, "passive activities are encouraged."

i've have always wanted an old, vintage school map. unfortch, anytime i've come across them, they haven't been cheap.
miraculously, a few weeks ago, i found one on the street outside my church! it was partially water damaged on its right side - sorry, japan & australia.
but, a little field trip to ikea and some cutting and i have new artwork for over my sofa. (please pardon the cluttered coffee table and collection of plastic bags next to the couch.)
yesterday, i took a field trip to red hook, brooklyn to visit the new ikea. what could be better than a free ferry ride on a beautiful sunny afternoon? i even managed to not get lost in brooklyn for once.
waiting on the ferry.
give me liberty, or give me low-priced swedish furnishings.
red hook waterfront. the black dots on the bricks are actually patriotic stars.
in case you need to bundle up your purchases.
