nyc | beautiful sunday

Jet Skiing
we had beautiful weather this weekend and jet skiing on the east river looked so cool. the coast guard had a lot of boats around the united nations because there's a big summit this week, which will come with big traffic jams.

we enjoyed some lunch and people watching. i love salad bars where you can have breakfast, lunch & dessert all at once.

these two just made me laugh. she was doing some sort of tai chi while he kept touching his toes and looked like he was bowing to her. i love ny!

someone else saw this grasshopper and then it hopped my way before heading into the grasses. i love ny, again.

WWII Postcard
scott's father charlie on the left with an army buddy in hollywood during training for WWII. looks like they were training to be captured! he's been under the weather this summer, but most of his ailments are under control, except one. the doctors see a small spot on his lung even though he never smoked. he's getting a biopsy today and i just hope they don't puncture his lung. then, i hope it's much ado about nothing. i know charlie has some fans here, so please send him some good luck. hope you had a nice weekend!

xo, cindy

ps i was a guest over on wishful nals on friday with some favorites, including a terrific book all budding photographers should absolutely pick up.

she looked pretty rough and had the worst gash on her left knee. thanks for the good wishes, line. it's going to be a long day. i'm pretty emotional about it and work is very stressful these days, too. ugh!

One of my most favorite cities in the whole wide world. Certainly was a beautiful weekend, particularly as seen through your beautiful eyes.

Keeping everything tightly crossed for Charlie. He's in my thought and prayers.

Gosh, the second I read "Beautiful Sunday" that 70's song popped into my head - I still love that song and have it in my iTunes :) Beautiful Sunday indeed!

Love the Hollywood pic of sweet Charlie with his buddy! You know I am definitely a fan - he is in my thoughts and prayers and I will be anxious to hear what the outcome is Cindy. xoxoxo

Must check that book out too!

Dawn said...

i need to get out more! your photos are so full of life :)

cindy said...

thanks everyone ... the weather continues to be wonderful!

charlie did ok, just a small deflation of a part of his lung. they blew it back up like a balloon and we took him home. sloan kettering is one scary place. we don't want to have to go back, but the people there are absolutely terrific and kind!

thanks for your well wishes. i'm sure they helped. we'll see what the results say and are trying not to think about the c-word.

we did some housekeeping while we were at his place cause we stayed with him overnight so things are getting a little bit more ship shape, but we're tired.

Pascale said...

A lovely post with lovely photos as always.
I'm thinking of you and hope Charlie will feel better soon. Take care!
xo, P.
