It’s starting to look and feel a lot like Fall in New York City. There’s a chill in the air and Trader Joe’s is regularly selling out of any and all pumpkin flavored/spiced/labeled products. I’m gearing up for my 10K next Sunday and finally bought some new running kicks. All in all, life is good. Go ahead and take a look at a few of my wanderings from this past week:
1. Look Ma, I can bake!
Ok so…I cheated a little. My hands-down favorite pumpkin-related product from Trader Joe’s is the easy Pumpkin Bread & Muffin mix. Just add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, and 1 cup water to the magical mix and voila! – pumpkin muffins that are not only edible, but seasonally delicious.
2. Don’t get in the way of a Girl and her Bike.
Just don’t. It will never end well for you. (Taken in Grand Central Terminal)
3. Just Do It.
How awesome is this drawing on the wall in the Nike Running Store? I don’t think my feet are that flexible though, even in my brand spanking new Nike Frees. More on that later.
4. The Grapes of Wrath.
I was meandering through the Union Square Greenmarket on Saturday morning and caught this Yeti of a dog sniffing up the grapes. Grapes can be pretty toxic for our canine counterparts so thankfully his owner intervened. Plus, grape juice on that beautiful white coat would just be a major faux
As I was taste-testing some of my greenmarket finds, this little fella scampered past at full speed. I’m just glad he wasn’t stalking me for my food since these creatures no longer harbor any fear of human beings. Unless of course, you try to steal their nuts.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
