If You Come Here, You'd Better Like Cupcakes....

... because you'll most definitely be getting one.My darling friend Charlotte, with her requisite Magnolia cupcake. Charlotte's an Aussie who lives in Edinburgh and came to me by way of Florida. She is, as many of my visitors seem to be these days, a fantastically talented musician (a fiddle-player, to be precise) who can be spotted playing with various cool bands around the globe.
I got her all to myself for 3 days of Serious New York fun and sightseeing. We saw "Avenue Q" one night and the "Farnsworth Invention" the next (just to get both ends of the intellectual spectrum), visited MOMA, and viewed the city from the top of Rockefeller Center (this is a great bird's-eye-view option of NYC b/c you can actually see the Empire State Building in all its glory).
We visited one of my all-time favorite book characters in Central Park, Alice in Wonderland:And did about a million other things. And then she flew home, over that big old ocean, and now I miss her! Charlotte, come back anytime!
But wait! Just so's you know, the Swirly-girl Socks are done!I've already worn them, throughout a whole day of wearing tights and a skirt in this freezing cold weather so that I could show them off. I've always been willing to freeze just a little for vanity's sake, but now for knitting vanity too? I'm doomed. ;)
