February is such a “blah” month. The holiday-a-month excitement is now firmly behind us, while weeks and maybe even months of chilly grey skies yawn ahead on the horizon. Firmly feeling the “blah”s, I took it into my initiative to take a mini “vacation” last Thursday!
Most important in a vacation is that one doesn’t give a mind to their messy appearance.
Please note here the messy hair, and the facial expression indicating that I just don’t care.
My vacation was by rail…er, subway rail:
One also does not pay too much heed to the train they take. At one of my transfers, I accidentally boarded a Q train when I was meant for an R. Consider it a slight “layover” in Astoria.
Finally, I arrived at my tropical destination: the candle aisle at the basement-level Bath & Body Works in the Queens Center Mall:
Leaving my tropical paradise with a few souveniers, I headed into “town” to wander the local streets and got a bit lost. Actually, the Yelp app on my phone sent me to a place that no longer existed. So basically, I enjoyed being a tourist.
I did see this awesome block full of “tiny houses,” though!
And as a tourist, I was obligated to take a photo of this lovely local monument:
So that was my day of vacation, or day-cation!
Just “imagine” the ones I can have when the weather warms up!
