Age is only a state of mind. At least that is what I am telling myself this week, as I turn the big 60 on March 10th !! I suppose the only thing I miss is all of my very dark black hair…
As opposed to this “ salt and pepper” look. One can’t remain “pepper” forever.
I strongly felt that I would feel much better turning 60 if I were in New York City. So my wonderful husband, Wells, and I are off to the city for a few days.
Staying at The Carlyle, which is one of my favorite hotels in New York, is a good consolation for turning sixty. I enjoy their lovely rooms, and I think Bemelmans Bar is divine with its great murals. Such a perfect place for a (or several) glasses of Veuve Clicquot!
And then off for some of my favorite things…
See my friend Lee….
Visit my favorite book store… Archivia Books
And plans for what should be an interesting wine tasting at Morrell Wines , an old vintage Premier Crus.
And I am really looking forward to classes at The Flower School –New York . I recently learned about the flower school from Eileen Johnson, the schools director. Eileen has written two great books, The Art of Flower Arranging and Entertaining in the French Style.
One of my favorite movies is Driving Miss Daisy and I just simply could not miss it on Broadway!
And since my husband is such a football fan, we will also see Lombardi.
And by the time we have dined at La Grenouille , I should really be enjoying 60! La Grenouille opened in 1962, serving classic French cusine , and are known for their exquisite floral arrangements.
And there will be other exciting diversions for a just turned 60 year old that remain to present themselves.
And even when I must leave New York, there is always something to look forward to the next week…Saint Patrick’s Day !
Dont forget about my book Give-a-Way coming soon… A lucky subscriber will win this book.
Our last book Give-A-Way was won by Jeanne Sevart of Springfield, Missouri!
