five little things that made my week.

2. this mac and cheese. macandcheese
{because sometimes you need comfort food. even in the middle of a heat wave}.
3. these blue eyes.blue_eyes
 {because they were right across the table from me}.
4. this window. and wall. and pipe.bathroom
{because they look so bad now, that anything i do to fix it up will be an improvement}.
5. these teas.tea
{because of the sweet, sweet writing}.

    You have had a nice week. All of these things are great. Your mac and cheese looks so good! Having a little bit of blue sky has made my week. It's been very cold and grey here in SF lately.

    Mac and cheese definitely isn't one of my favorite heat wave foods, but I wouldn't say no if it were offered to me 🙂

    That mac & cheese looks amazing. It's 104 degrees right now but I wouldn't mind that exact meal.

    Mac and Cheese, mmmm. My stepson makes it with extra crumblies on the top and Gruyere cheese and a touch of garlic and jalepeno. Divine.

    Ooh… green eyes will do it for you every time! 😀 Of course, in my case it's a pair of gold eyes… but I'm feeling you on this. 😀 Lovely list of photos.

    Love it! I too have been meaning to walk the High Line forever and still have not done it. I'd like to walk that and the Brooklyn Bridge before summer ends.

  • Reply Jane Flanagan August 17, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    Beautiful photos! I've been craving mac and cheese too – maybe my tummy wishes it was Fall as well!

  • Reply Sweet Ronit August 17, 2010 at 3:31 pm

    What a lovely week! I can always go for mac and cheese, regardless of the weather – yum!

    Oh how I have missed seeing your five objects. They are always a perfect smattering of images.

    Are you still in the city? (It looks like yes) If so, let's grab that drink?

    mac and cheese is good all year round, especially if it looks that delicious.

    I LOVE Veselka!
    Mike and I went last week and had lots of kielbasa and pierogi – it reminded me of my Grandma's cooking. The polish/ukranian butcher across the street is also amazing.

  • Reply Joanna September 5, 2010 at 1:12 am

    I love the names of those teas: refreshing mint blend and uplifting day. Just what a girl needs to start the day off right!

  • Reply Kanachan October 21, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    i got bleary-eyed when glancing at the "blue eyes" post. both because i cry easily and b/c it was lovely.
