Sunday, Sunday! It’s been very busy for me since I wrote that obscenely large check for the down payment on my condo, and because I’m having the kitchen and bathroom redone I spent yesterday morning and this morning thinking about cabinets and other things. Honestly, I don’t really care about refurbishing and decorating; I just want to move in! At the rate things are going, after the closing date on October 1st, it’ll probably be about November before I can fully move in. But I’m very excited about all of this.
I also spent a part of this weekend figuring out my camera and uploading pictures on there that have been taking up space since September… 2009 (that was when I went to
Mecca London). And then I had some photos on my camera from Labor Day weekend, when I went to visit my college roommate up in New Jersey. So below is a selection of photos…
From the top: the book haul from the trip; the South Bank Book Market (it doesn't look like much, but I found some great deals there); the historical fiction section at Hatchards bookshop in Piccadilly; Sunday afternoon on the Thames; Westminster Abbey; Hampton Court Palace; the Persephone bookshop in Lambs Conduit Street; the Traitor's Gate at the Tower of London; Houses of Parliament; and the last is a shot of me last Sunday sitting in some tree in Tewksbury, NJ. When I went to London I took a lot of photos of the old Roman wall outside the Museum of London, and lots of shots of mosaics in the Tottanham Court Road tube station; sadly, none of them turned out all that well (I take pictures of the most random things!)
