This song, "The Blower's Daughter" by Damien Rice is a song that's currently on repeat on my ipod. Listen to the whole thing by clicking on the song name on this page.

It's so simple, bare and haunting....

MacArthur Beach

I've been meaning to post pics of this beautiful little private beach, MacArthur Beach State Park. Theres much that I have yet to do, like kayak and visit their nature center. I only went once, but in that one time I was so impressed by the long wooden bridge. It was a nice walk despite lugging a beach umbrella and chair. I didn't even end up using the umbrella because I hung underneath the shade as you can see from this first picture. While walking over the bridge, to my great excitement, I experienced seeing flying fish for the first time ever! It was awesome...although fleeting. You'd hear the spash, and darn you missed one. The shore is a little rocky...but I usually like to take a short dip followed by a nap on the sand. :) Nature is so soothing.

I've been MIA from this blog for a while...Not because of being
terribly busy, but because I spend the whole day on the
computer, and when I get home I'm just not in the mood.
Yesterday Gata & I went to Mundo, this really cute open sort
of restaurant in Astoria (you have to say "Astoria" the way the
Manhattanites do...Like with a question mark). It was really
nice because you could get away with not spending a lot if you
wanted to. I like the chicken thing I got.

I do miss being in Florida. I got so used to everything there...I
made friends and was a total beach bum. There was just no
better way to spend a warm day, then to take a dip and then
nap on the sand. It's much better on the nerves. Here in NY, I
noticed immediately after I landed how much it stinks - literally!
The air quality is really bad here and I don't mean to sound
like a snob because I really love the city, but DANG (yes I said
dang). Ha ha. The weather now is getting better, but it does
not feel one bit like June! I'd say it feels more like going into
fall. But whatever. A sticky, muggy city ain't fun anyway.

I have a friend looking after the house, and I hear my ant
problem is getting worse. Gotta call Terminix again. These
darn ants were making paths and taking over! I got the house
sprayed and it nixed the problem...For a little while anyway. I
left all my fun summery clothes in Florida, and have reason to
shop, ha. Ooh...gotta tell you about Shoe Carnival. Don't be
fooled by it's simplistic, corny name! This place was
awesome! I got 4 pairs of shoes for under $60. And two were
well known name brands! (Nine West & Aerosoles). So I
couldn't bring myself to spend $40 on a sandal in NY. As bad
as I do need a pair...Because I am wearing out this one pair
that I have that goes w/ almost anything I wear.

So that's the 411 peeps. LOL....
