Lunch at Good Health & Pumpkin scone

Sunday before I left NYC, Maggie took me to another of her favorite restaurant: Good Health

Me (sorry for the scars in my face, I hope it goes away soon) and Maggie. I think we enjoy each other’s company a lot :D

After lunch, we walked to Central Park. I really like Maggie and Bobby’s company. It’s so relaxing. And I learn from them too. They communicate a lot, even small things. I sometimes get lazy to tell Star about everything I do and think, but I think it’s a great way to communicate and stay close. Need to work on that ;)

Shortly I had to catch the bus way back to DC. It was a short visit but perfect weekend trip to be with a great friend :) We already scheduled our next !!! :lol:

On the bus back, I got sad. I missed Star terribly, specially after I got the news the night before about his changing plan. He was supposed to be back to DC on Monday, but there was an urgency about the project he’s working on, so he had to flight to Mexico instead. :( When I heard the news I wasn’t too affected because I was with Maggie. But when I got alone and after being with a happy couple, I was sad. But that’s life right? There will be always unexpected things happening. We should learn to look at the bright side always. However, during that 4.5 hours on the bus, I couldn’t see the brightness, all I could feel was missing someone until it hurts. ┬áBut don’t worry, I’m ok now. I talked to Star yesterday by phone for almost 2 hours when he was transiting in San Francisco, I plan to visit him in Mexico City, a place I’ve never been. :) Changing plan = spontaneous trip! :lol:

Sunday morning I woke up and feel like scone for breakfast. I guess it was the inertia after that. So I made Pumpkin Scones
