The other day I was coming home on the subway
snapping randomish sorts of pictures and discovered a man reading the Hollywood Reporter. I always like to snoop and see what people are reading. Yesterday on the way to Queens a young woman was reading The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. We agreed it was a very good book. Most really studious serious types are playing video games.
Usual Saturday at Union Square with
a plethora of pears
tasteful herbs (rosemary sage and thyme)
Brussel sprouts galore
and a winesap apple which reappeared as
cupcakes with apple in them.
Wind chills in the teens, a wicked wind and snow last night tore down most of the remaining leaves and deposited them in convenient piles. (The gray splotch is my winter coat).
This last picture is of a leaf in the paper that wrapped the lovely Thai paper I ordered from Novica.
It's that time of year again. I have a $25 Novica gift code to send to one lucky person who leaves a comment here by next Sunday December 1st. I just happen to be addicted to paper, but they have silk scarves and clothing and all sorts of beautiful things from artisans all over the world.
