( 9:03 AM ) teahouse
With the arrival of the hot summer, I've decided to share a secret about me:
I am obsessed with citronella candles.
I don't know why; something about the scent of citronella makes me so happy.
One of my favorite things to do is go out on my fire escape, sit above the street and light a little candle.
During the summer, the New York Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera have free concerts in Central Park.
I round up a group of friends, pack sandwiches, bring a blanket and some citronella candles. I can sit there for hours, happy that the mosquitoes are not eating me for dinner.
My leg injury bothered me on Saturday morning, so I chose not to run that 10K. Instead, I sat outside, lit a candle, and read the Sunday Times. #
