One thing that can be frustrating about living in New York is that everyone is so busy. On the other hand, I love being friends with so many ambitious, smart, talented people. It helps that we just kind of assume we’re all busy, so no one takes it personally when it’s hard to make plans. However, it makes it extra-special when we manage to get it together. Even when you haven’t seen each other in months, you can pick up right where you left off. Case in point: last night I celebrated an old friend’s birthday, and it was like maybe a week had gone by since we’d seen each other!
I actually stayed out past midnight and did not turn into a pumpkin. Small victories. Of course, I still woke up at 7:30 this morning without my alarm, but fortunately, I didn’t really feel the wine and champagne I’d enjoyed last night. I even went to the 9 a.m. yoga class I love.
So far, the rest of my day is going to include laundry and catching up on work. Oh, and making soup, because I do a lot of that this time of year. Today’s concoction is French lentil soup with mushrooms, roasted eggplant, and red miso. We’ll see about the rest.
What are your weekend plans? Any favorite soup concoctions?
