I'm noticing that having a lazy day really isn't that different in Brooklyn compared to other places. In fact, if anything, it is easier. Yesterday, I spent much of my day cleaning and organizing. I made one of my favorite soup recipes except that I use chicken broth and add two fried links of chicken sausage and make it on the stove instead of a crockpot. It goes so well with a super sharp cheddar cheese grilled sandwich on a crusty wheat bread. David and I had that with some champagne that he had picked up on the way home from work. We watched the rest of season one of Empire on Hulu. In order to save money two years ago, I got rid of cable television and just used my Netflix account. I share it with my twin brother and his family. They got Hulu last year and share it with me. We both save quite a bit of money that way.
Today, I've just been doing some christmas shopping on line (my family is exchanging gifts at Thanksgiving). If you don't leave your apartment, it's sometimes hard to remember you are in Brooklyn. On Sunday's, the traffic is less, the noise is less, and it can be pretty calm on my street.
The only difference is that my house on Goodyear Lake upstate was surrounded by the lake and great views. You would hear birds chirping most days. I don't hear that as much here.
It's good to have a day or two to just sit at home and relax with the television or a good book. I hope you find some time to put your feet up this weekend.
