Hello there! There was a tiny phrase printed on my calendar last Saturday. It said, "September 22 - First day of Autumn". My heart sank a little. Don't get me wrong, I love Autumn and everything associated with it -- apple-picking, amber-colored leaves, thick sweaters, delicious scarves, and knee-high boots. But I have a love affair with summer, and parting ways is absolute blah.
Sorry for the melodrama. To make-up for it, let me tell you about my "Splendid Summer". It's a board on my Pinterest page. I put this board together because I joined a contest over at Oh Joy. The winner was to receive an iPad plus a few other goodies just by pinning images that defined "splendid summer". Instead of random images, I made the exercise purposeful by listing through pictures, "50 Things I'd Like To Enjoy this Summer."
I didn't win, but all wasn't lost. As I ticked off the items on my list, I felt I was making the most out of a fleeting season. Blah to TADA!
Number 50 on the list is, "Create a summer album", and I'm doing just that. All this week, I'll share the things I've done this summer.
Today, it's all about the yummy things I ate:
|I baked a batch of cookies (chocolate chip walnut)|
|I indulged in some shaved ice - this is a |
Taiwanese kind with strawberries and
condensed milk purchased at the
Fulton Stall Market, South Street Seaport
|Another kind of shaved ice, this |
time Korean, called Patbingsu
from Paris Baguette
|Instead of making popsicles, I bought some!|
They're gelato pops dipped in chocolate.
Found them at the Pop Bar.
|Ate some lobster (lobster rolls |
|Grilled a few burgers at home|
|Took the annual pilgrimage to |
Dairy Queen for a blizzard!
I wish you a delicious day! More photos tomorrow.
