Above: My hood this morning on the way to coffee; it was so quiet, doesn’t it look empty?
Sooooo, you may have noticed I clean skipped over day 2 of vacay and launched into day 3, but I’ve been taught when you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all…that being said, I don’t always adhere to that rule but in this case I will. On to the next one, which takes us to today-day 3!
Today I woke up and immediately started my work-out to get my mind right; turns out excercise is theraputic and so my day began. I decided to follow-up all those handy-dandy strength excercises by a walk through my hood. Upon hitting the pavement I drank in the resounding quiet that blanketed the area. I love this about Baltimore and wonder if other cities feel the same way; Baltimore becomes a ghost town whenever there’s a holiday: no traffic, few pedestrians, no police sirens…at least not until nightfall. I made my way to the local coffee shop Milk & Honey and sat in the air conditioning people-watching, drinking a large cup of coffee, and starting a new book Kasher in the Rye…as you may know I’m into memoirs right now and after reading only one chapter this one promises not to disappoint, dude compares his book to of course, Catcher in the Rye and Basketball Diaries. After drinking most of my coffee I walked back home; took a shower; packed up my laundry and nail kit-it’s a recession, I’d prefer a pedicure but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do- and made my out of the city to post up at my sister’s and take care of everything. I got to hang out with my niece who read me one of her books The Fully Belly Bowl and simultaneously take care of my pre-vacay errands. Now I’m at Mom’s getting ready to eat a burger and enjoy the fam. Happy Independance Day to those who care; to those who don’t, Happy Day off Work Although It’s In the Middle of the Week and Requires Use of Vacation Days Thursday & Friday to Actually Let Loose & Have Fun Today
