Jumped on a train yesterday morning to get out of the city and see my aunt, uncle, cousin, and her baby (the 3-year-old), for my Wednesday and Thursday weekend. Desperately needed it (ignoring the Amtrak costs).
While still waiting to find out if I'll get time off for Florida at the end of April (requested in January and April was the earliest time permitted), I saw my request scrubbed from the list and no one 'available' to chat with me and explain what's going on or its status, Tuesday
But by Wednesday night, last night, went to bed without remembering having even left Manhattan just that morning. Was perfect. And the weather was too! Despite there being snow on the ground in parts, this morning I spent around two hours sunbathing on the patio: bare arms and feet. Trying now in fact to figure out if the reason I'm not feeling well was because of the amount of sun... or this mysterious bite I got from the woods... and my body's shock to two meals of red meat (against my wimpy city diet of ham sandwiches every now and then).
Back to the grind tomorrow, but wanted to quickly share some gorgeous pictures from the Catskills.
So thankful for being able to get away <3
