Today was inspired by red...or pink...or cranberry...or whatever.

My day in photos.
I stayed in my styling pj's longer than acceptable this morning.

Then I wrapped my friend's birthday present.

I drove to meet her & passed this on the way.

Great clouds over Ikea today.

My girlie told me that the Swedish meatballs were the specialty of the house & man were they good.

A reflection.

Art all over the store.

Almost getting sideswipped by a bus this time.

I swore I'd only go in for a minute.

I'm not a fan of Black Friday shopping.

You have to be nuts to brave those crowds.

The one store I was in today wasn't so bad

(& they seemed to be almost giving stuff away).

Of course I was only there for minutes.

An orgy of apples.

I had to get rough with one of 'em.

This one did a lovely striptease to make me smile.

I almost got hit by a speeding van while crossing the street today.

Looks that way, doesn't it?

That van was actually parked & why I got that much of it in my shot is beyond me.

OK, so I love farmer's markets & found another one.

I got some warm bread here & stayed toasty on my walk.

I climbed up on a slippery wet wall to get a better view of the park.

Come on...read it...it's for a good cause...plus, trying to guess what each piece of art is...is half the fun...OK...it's more difficult to tell what they are in person, you get lost in just seeing so many cans...I guess my photos sort of spell out what each of them are.

"Canstruction is the most unique food charity in the world.

A foundation of the Society for Design Administration (SDA), Canstruction is a design/build competition currently held in cities throughout North America. Teams of architects, engineers, and students mentored by these professionals, compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food.

They display their creations then donate all the cans when they dismantle the art.

"Since its inception, ten million pounds of food has been donated to aid in the fight against hunger. Initiated by the Denver, Seattle and New York Chapters of the SDA in 1992/93, Canstruction now has over one hundred individual competitions scheduled to take place during the 2007-2008 cycle."

"Canstruction demonstrates that everyone CAN make a difference, one CAN at a time. The public is invited to bring canned foods to donate to City Harvest when viewing the exhibition."

Check HERE to see if it's in your city.

I hit the holy grail of honey today.

Lavender honey is the best honey in my humble opinion.

I search for it whatever new place I find myself.

It's hard to find.

The bees that make it pollinate only lavender flowers so it's extra sweet.

Imagine my surprise when I found it in a specialty food mart

only an hour from where I live.

THEN I find one of my new favorite things.

Chrystallized ginger...it's sweetness with a spicy kick.

I guess I have a thing for hard to find foods.

What kind of out of the ordinary foods hit your sweet spots?

Taken @ 10:45 this morning in lower Manhattan.

"Jeff Koons's art enacts the basic exchange of public sculpture. We literally see ourselves in his alluring reflective surfaces; his buoyant forms reach deep into our childhood with its accompanying feelings of hope and optimism."

OK, that's what one person sees...& I don't disagree in the least...I'd tack on that I love most public art, it adds joy to my day just to see it out of the corner of my eye while I'm rushing by it. I also love how it interacts with it's surroundings, reflects the city back to us...& sort of gives a soft contrast to all the hard lines & angles of the buildings surrounding it on all sides.

What do you think?

"Top 25 Most Played Songs"

Disclaimer...got this wonderful idea off of someone's blog awhile ago...so, I should really give credit where credit is due...what? I said I SHOULD...doesn't mean I will...here's what they wrote:

"The best thing about the iPod playlist "Top 25 Most Played" is that you can't hide who you are when you look at it. All is revealed. You may wish you were the kind of person who listened to Igor Stravinsky enough that he would show up on your Top 25 Most Played - but unless you are, organically, the kind of person who listens to Stravinsky on a daily basis - he will not be in your Top 25 Most Played. If you want your music to give off some kind of specific impression meant to impress others - if you want someone to think you're cool, or eclectic, or deep, or if you scoff at music made by 'the man' - if any of these things are an issue for you, then don't let anyone look at your Top 25 Most Played. Just keep it under wraps. If you're not comfortable with people knowing that you listen to "Day Dream Believah" so often that it makes it into your Top 25, then I suggest just not mentioning it. The Top 25 Most Played playlist never lies. It shows you to yourself. It can surprise you."

Here is my Top 25 Most Played list:

(click to make it larger if it would tickle you to see the songs on my list)

I'd love to hear about yours...mind you...these aren't necessarily your highest rated songs...just for some reason(s) (there are MANY) or another...you always find yourself coming back to these songs over & over & over.

I usually don't stand so close to the end of the platform while waiting for my train.

Today I did & as I stared off onto the tracks lost in my own thoughts...

Something moved down there.

I involuntarily stepped back when I recognized that something as a mouse.

Chills, I tell you...raced up my arms (in a bad, creepy way).

The guy standing next to me laughed.

So, I turned to look the other way

...hoping that I saw no more mice.

This is what (who) I saw.

I saw this guy on Halloween & thought he had a great costume.

Little did I know it wasn't a costume.

I was walking aimlessly & for some reason ended up here:

Nelson A. Rockefeller Park, NYC @ 4:30ish (great blue light at this hour today)
