Guys, the weather in NY this weekend was hot. No, no, you don’t understand. Don’t complain to me about your warm 85 degree weather when I’m talking temps in the 90s H.O.T. Still, even though I would personally have rather stayed home with the AC on, we spent most of the weekend outdoors. While Mark was down at the Food Film Festival, I was at back to back birthday parties in Prospect Park and playdates with the girls on Saturday, and back to the Park for another class picnic on Sunday where Claudine got a little diploma. It was a busy social weekend, even if I did have to take 5 showers over 2 days just to cool off. Also, this all day activity and running around in the sun all weekend is for the birds. Or at least young people. My aching back, feet and sciatic pain is making me feel really old.
We ended our weekend with a lemonade stand in front of our building. Mia’s been asking to do one for ages so we set up some leftover limeade and cookies from Saturday’s event. The girls held their attention in and out of those 2 hours so Mark felt like he was back at the Flea as he ended up pouring Limeade and ice in cups to “customers”. If you were lucky enough to pass by, you would have had regular Flea goods at a highly discounted price. In the end, the girls made $18 (not bad!) and yes, it was mostly from neighbors who came out after I posted on Facebook. But that’s what neighbors are for, right?
