She's a wonderful cook and made us scrambled eggs with roasted peppers, sausage, a green salad, fruit and assorted pastries. As you can tell, I couldn't wait to taste some of Barbara's rhubarb preserves.
After our meal, we got to stroll around the beautiful neighborhood that Barbara gets to call home. She has an easy commute to Columbus Circle on an express train but gets to enjoy this view in the evenings and on weekends.
I felt like I was in Spain! So peaceful. You'd think this was an old monastery, but it was actually built to be a museum.
It was a perfect Sunday outing. We returned to the Upper East Side for a late afternoon rest (yes, that's a theme in our family), but we were roused by the air horns of the National Puerto Rico Day Parade down Fifth Avenue. It was an all-day event that turned the subway station near us into an exit-only facility because the crowds are so massive.
