It is HOT in New York. HOT HOT HOT. Currently (8pm) my weather widget says:
95 degrees F (35 C). What is the best thing to do on a hot day? Get your nails done of course! (I actually had these done yesterday, which was almost as hot.)
This is a “UV manicure” which is supposed to last up to 2 weeks. We’ll just see about that. If it does I will never go back to regular manis, which only last 2 days for me. So far it hasn’t chipped, so it’s off to a good start 😉 The woman put a kind of gel on my nails that hardened; then she put on the color. I love dark nails – I always go for dark red/brown/purple, even in the summer. I think I will do purple for the wedding (it’ll be tasteful). Speaking of the wedding…
We got Bobby’s wedding band today. It’s very nice but you’ll have to wait until after the wedding to see it.
Oh, this is a food blog? Okay! Here is my lunch:
It’s a grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes. I put it in Mr. George Foreman before I left for work. It was a li’l soggy by lunchtime but still yummy.
- 2 slices bread (mine was the Organic Whole Grain Health Loaf from Bread Alone – from the Union Square farmers’ market on Fridays)
- sliced organic tomatoes (also from the Union Square farmers’ market)
- Dorset goat cheese from Consider Barnwell Farm (from the Greenpoint / McCarren Park farmers’ market in Brooklyn)
I made Bobby a similar sandwich this weekend – just grilled chicken (love you, George) with tomato; sauces were mayonnaise and teriyaki sauce… (same bread and tomato as mine):
He liked it.
Exercise of the day: Pick Your Level: Weight Loss Pilates with Ellen Barrett (Netflix). Walk home from work (1.4 miles). Walk to Tiffany’s and to dinner (Chipotle) (1.5 miles).
Was it hot where you live? What did you do to beat the heat?
