This is what happens when the cherry blossums fall off the trees. Lots of pink petals sticking to your shoes. The last few days of 90 degree weather are gone and it's back in the 60's where it should be.
The big council event last night was a beer and cheese tasting lead by the brewmeister at the Brooklyn Brewery. It was fun and pretty interesting. During the lesson on beer and cheese he also talked about business and customer experience but it was an engaging way to learn.
Went out to a bar in TriBeCa and then the lower east afterwords with some long time creative good staff. Some of whom are moving on and I won't see at the next event. Gonna miss those guys.
On the plane going home now. Can't wait to see the family and new floors.
I've been in the financial district for the last couple days for the first time since about 2002. It's a whole different world from the rest of manhatten and a little confusing. I prefer the village and mid town to be quite honest.
The most obvious part of all the housework going on right now is the new fan over our bed. I have to look up at it every night and most mornings. Can't help it, it's right there. It creates some serious wind on the lowest speed and looks dashing in that brushed nickel kind of way. I love my new fan and look forward to it cooling me for a long time.
Work and coordinating all the materials needed for all the work being done on the house made up most of this week. We are getting the guest bathroom redone (goodbye fishy wallpaper) and are have most of the inside of the house painted and the wood floors redone. Nicole picked some great color combinations for the living room and dining room. The whole place is looking better with new ceiling fans and fixtures but they are not done and the place is kind of a mess. New furniture for the living room is next and that will be fun to pick out.
Watched Bolt with the boys tonight and we are watching Young@Heart now. Both good movies. I'm diving into the taxes tomorrow, hoping the amount owed is reasonable.
