Down But Not Out

I really need to focus on one thing at a time - and to realize that I can't fly. I know I certainly can roll - ungracefully down the 59th Street subway stairs. My shoe decided to stay behind and the rest of me went down. Thankfully nothing was broken, more like pulled. I guess this week my Jane Austen character is Marianne Dashwood, minus Willoughby. Still, I need to wear sneakers for the next couple of weeks, and not take long walks in the cool weather. Of course it's better than crutches. The bonus is I have my very own x-rays of my left foot, at least one of them. Because of needing the x-rays, my heel spur has been confirmed - told you guys I wasn't being a drama queen hypochondriac!

Just in time for autumn, Panera Bread opened in LIC, a walking distance from my home (well, a bus ride for the next couple of weeks.) I got to have lunch there today, and it was quite cozy. The soup and sandwich were real nice. The iced green tea was just as I'd remembered it. Normally I wouldn't like sweetened green tea, but there's something about iced tea that suggests sweetening. They serve hot Republic of Tea also, which isn't too shabby either. Can't wait to try the souffles. Marie raves about them.

I have two soufles of recommendation: Turkey Sausage & Egg and Spinach and Ham...YUM

I went there last night and they gave us 2 free bagels. I LOVE Panera's...I always get the half sandwich and Broccoli Cheddar soup.

The iced green tea is rather good...

The cold weather makes me nostalgic of the past when winter used to make me depressed.

Winter is depressing by February, I guess, but autumn is so very cozy.

Ooooooooow!!!!!!!! That must have hurt. Did you have dress clothes on. I can just imagine where that skirt or dress ended up. Glad you weren't hurt. Nothing worse than crutches in the subway. Well the autumn in up state NY proved to be beautiful and still is. Chilly nights but the trees are very colorful. Love it. I hear there is going to be a Trader Joe's opening in Queens. Great store. Lots of natural foods CHEAP. Check it out. Sandy
