Have you missed me?

I forgot to post anything about being maybe less available this week. My lovely and amazing fifteen year-old goddaughter Sylvia is visiting from Florida. We’ve been having such a great time.

Wednesday we went to Rockefeller Plaza, saw the tree, the skating rink, and went up to the observation deck. Thursday we visited the Palisades Center Mall. Which isn’t special to Arthur or I, seeing as we live here, but for a teen from Florida, the second-largest mall in the U.S. is definitely an attraction. We shopped together a little and then I let them off to be teens on their own.

Friday was goof-off day. We stayed home, and I did Sylvia’s makeup and taught her some girlie arcana. Then Arthur wanted to play so I did him up “emo.” Then we drove around Pearl River looking at audacious holiday light displays.

Today it was Woodstock, where we shopped, visited an art gallery, looked at waterfalls, and hung out with the hippies. Big fun. Tomorrow morning EARLY I take Syl to the airport.

Regular blogging will probably not resume until after the New Year.
