My favorite month of the year!
Video: Mr. TC and I are glued to our weekly viewings of “Home Fires” and “Indian Summers” on PBS. Yes, we are old folks.
Audio: The Replacements (Tim is 30 years old?!)
Reading: Ta-Nehisi Coates’s Between the World and Me, thanks to my friend C. who loaned me her copy
Art: “Impressionism and the Caribbean: Francisco Oller and His Transatlantic World” at the Brooklyn Museum
Drink: Le Palais des Thés Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope tea
Eats & Treats: Ginger snaps
Garb: Fall layers…tights and cardigans. Hooray! Also, wedge-heeled mary-janes from Hotter.
Beauty Products: Lots of Aquaphor to treat chapped, itchy lips caused by seasonal pollen allergies. Very glamourous.
Purchase: A James Coviello/Anna Sui cardigan from the “final sale” rack
Pleasure: My recent presentation at the Brooklyn Brainery, and very possibly more to come!
Worry: My favorite downtown-Manhattan stores and eateries keep moving and/or closing. I know this is status quo for NYC, but lately it feels so personal.
Stray Thought: Our younger cat reminds us so much of Felix.
