My day started out fairly typically for a Monday. In an effort to economize, I made a large pumpkin latte at home to help me make it through my commute. Luckily, there was bumper-to-bumper traffic so that the coffee that spilled down the front of my shirt had plenty of time to dry.
The weather, these past three days, has been glorious. Clear, blue skies, warmish, light breezes. On Friday, I took the overland route to the state library and managed to take some pics of the architecture. Rockefeller strong-armed his will to create a monument to modernism - smack-dab in the middle of an historical area. You could call him the Robert Moses of Albany. He bisected a neighborhood of glorious brownstones in order to erect what was, in fact, a monument to him. I digress.

Lovely, ain't it?

During all this activity, I had planted the dogs on the deck on their rugs, with their marrow bones. Best thing ever - they were busy for almost two hours, before coming up for air. I called it a day around 6:30, fed everyone and slid my fridge-cleaning dinner in the oven. We had a quiet night - Lovey on HER sofa, and PB taking up an amazing amount of room for a diminutive being.
