: Today Leonard, John and I went to Flushing Meadows to see the World's Fair leftovers. The Unisphere was very cool, but all the fountains were turned off or drained and the Pavillion was closed (although the mosaic map on the floor appeared to be completely gone anyway). Still, it was neat to see and a nice walk. We burned some of the calories from our Thanksgiving feast yesterday.

The tarts Leonard made (pear and chocolate-pecan) were excellent. I also really loved his Parkerhouse rolls and the gravy. I mostly did prep work with the vegetables, but it was fun to help. We made a big batch of truffles today, chocolate, almond and mint flavored. And of course we had yummy mashed potatoes.

Early tomorrow morning we are heading back to the West Coast to rest up for the busy month ahead. We are moving soon, and the next 3 or 4 weeks will be the busiest for me at work. It was nice to get such a great vacation in before all that. Beet has hardly been any trouble, other than my poor hurty feet. Yesterday was the only day we've had rain. It's really turned out to be good timing for our vacation.

: Tonight I got a wonderful baby shower gift from "Aunt Sumana": a 90-minute pre-natal massage at a local spa. Sumana couldn't come with because she had to work today, but the boys walked me down there and I had a relaxing 90 minutes snuggled with pillows and blankets and getting spoiled. ahhh... I was on my side, like Kristen - I think my neck and shoulders would have been better if I was on my tummy, but he did his best, and he did get my face and head in addition. My feet have hurt a lot this trip, and this is the first time my lower back has been sore (maybe the bed?) So it was awfully nice to have such a treat today. Thanks Sumana!
