A Saturday in September

Brunch at Les Enfants de Bohème
I know, I know. How long has it been since Lazy Girl got back from the country? Let's not go there, OK? I'm here now with a post on this fine, pre-autumn day, when the sun is shining, but it's a little windy, so you really do need a jacket. The air conditioning storage company called this morning to arrange a pick up, but I told him I'd be in touch.

So I had to go and buy a new mouse for my MAC. I did that this morning, but when I got home, I decided I felt like pancakes. So Richard and I walked a few blocks to our neighborhood, très cool cafe, Les Enfants de Bohème.
It seemed like a good day to wear my cotton
tunic from Croteaux Vineyard in Southold, and my très chic
canvas, hand-painted hat from Jacques Le Corre in Paris.
 Les Enfants de Bohème is a new cafe from
Stéfan Jonot, my neighbor in Seward Park.
Tucked in at the corner
of Jefferson and Henry Streets,
deep on the Lower East Side, it's well out
of the way of the Donut Plant hordes,
aka the tourists.
 Michelange and East
of Les Enfants de Bohème.
I just learned that there's a celebrity kid named
North West, daughter of Kanye West.
So I guess she is North by West.
 Beautiful murals from two Brooklyn artists.

 A window table
 A doggie lusting after some brunch bacon.
 A quiet vibe with John Coltrane playing.
 Street Seats, outside the cafe.
New York's Department of transportation carved out this
seating area for everyone to enjoy.
Brilliant idea, I think.
The kids at Seward Park love this fat chalk.
 This kid loves it too.
 The world is turn...
and I am dope.
Way home ... our library and Saturday farmer's market.

Lazy Girl, Episode 8, Season 2: Scenes from a Summer

I cycled in reverie
down lanes and roads.
I swam in a warm river framed in grass green.
I smelled the subtly perfumed air.
I watched the swallows swoop and swirl.
I saw a perfect rose on a fence by the sea.
I ate a juicy tomato warmed by the sun.
I dined on peaches, the nectar of the gods.
I bought a hat, a necklace, a dress
and a bracelet.
I went to a party and was photographed by Newsday.
 I saw a splendid exhibit of the work
of William Steeple Davis.
 He painted these great deco figures.
 He photographed this vase of Lily of the Valley.
 He painted the Bug Lighthouse.
He painted this image of a powder-puff cat.
 Richard's family came to visit.
We met Danielle Gisiger, owner of 
the Black Whale in Aquebogue
designer of clothing and hats.
I saw a giant ear of corn.
I found the remnants of  Annie's
peach stand, but now they
sell dahlias.
I saw my sister, Susan.
and Jeanne (on left)
I saw my brother, David.
 I hung laundry on a line
A study in black and white
 We lunched at the Ram's Head Inn
on Shelter Island

 I saw a dappled lawn at the Ram's Head Inn.
 I walked by pretty houses on Village Lane.
 I saw a white hydrangea.
And we dined with old friends Andy, Julie and Sienna.

Adieu from Orient,
À Bientôt!
