These little ones were out during a block party on our street on Saturday. There's a guy a couple of houses down who breeds birds, and we were lucky enough to see his itty-bittiest. Aren't they adorbz?
It must have been Baby Amminal Day, because we also got to see a few litters of rescued kittens as we walked through Union Square. The sun might have been setting, but the weather was still oppressively hot, and each little kitty had the benefit of a personal fan. That guy right there was just too cute, stretched out and overheated... He looked the way I felt.
It's a little touristy, but there really is no beating a trip to The Strand Bookstore. We spent quite a few hours in there last night, and by the time we had stepped out, it was already pretty late. We saw lots of great books though (including 'Impressive', which features the work of my friend Julie Malone), and I ended up coming home with a steeply discounted copy of John Connolly's 'The Book of Lost Things'.
Today was comparatively low-key (as any proper Sunday should be) and involved errands in the neighborhood and a stop at the local Vietnamese sandwich shop for some passion fruit bubble tea and refreshing summer rolls. It was great really... I could do without the heat though. I'm not really a fan of feeling the need to take another shower every time I step out the door.
Sorry for the photo overload! I got excited.
