Christmasy pics from around our city:
Flowers = Spring time!
Enjoying the milder temps (in the 40’s today)… some are still wearing coats! I did look a little cray walking around in short sleeves, no jacket this weekend. 🙂
Crocheting and knitting baby items for charity… using pretty Spring colors!
A real treat listening to the sweet sounds of : ‘Angelica Women’s Choir’ every Christmas.
The Winter Fest Christmas Market in downtown, White Plains, NY is a Seasonal favorite with reasonably priced crafts, jewelry, gourmet foods. Vendor I love are an Organic tea ‘tea gevity’ and ‘Mind Body & Bath’, I love their handmade soap and essential oils.
I love Autumn.
Here in NY we did not see the usual bursting colors of bright Gold or Red leaves this year – not enough cool weather nor rain. But, it’s Fall.
I started a nice cozy, bulky cowl ,in this beautiful Green. Housed in my new Sheep project bag. I’m using #11 needles and knitting in the round, knit, knit, knit, knit…
The Farmer’s Market is winding down for the Season. I’ve stocked up on Cilantro and Red & Yellow Peppers …going to try my hand at canning small jars of Sofrito….we’ll see how that goes!
We enjoyed an outdoor concert, “Dancing Under the Stars the other evening – the temps were gorgeous, it was breezy and everything felt magical.
We’re having our first real heatwave (expected to last a week) here in NY. Fortunately, the humidity is not bad – I could breathe! 🙂
Me and hubby enjoyed shopping (mainly window shopping) today. We visited K-Mart, I was in search of beauty items (nail polish, eyeliner, etc.). I always enjoy HomeGoods and love seeing their ever changing items. The baskets, pillows and large glass floor vases were calling me name. I picked up some of their amazing bottles of spice and some new cloth dinner napkins.
We enjoyed an early dinner at Applebee’s and shared a full rack of ribs…mmm. There is nothing like ribs to knock me off my vegetarian mode..lol The frozen strawberry margarita was (and is always) refreshing.
We lucked out with beautiful weather today (rain expected tomorrow though). A lot of people and many families came out to enjoy. I brought a small WIP with me and “crocheted in public” while listening to the folksy/jazz band play.
The art work is exquisite – paintings, handbags, jewelry, stained glass, accessories, etc. I came home with these studs. Just a small birthday gift for me as I start the month off celebrating my special day.
Grateful for and in memory of those who served and gave their lives for our freedom, in the US.
Rye Playland and the Veterans Administration celebrated and honored all of the service members with a tremendous picnic, entertainment & air show by the Marines. Included was a free day of rides at the amusement park.
The weather was perfect, and being by the water (tye soubd) we had a lovely breeze all day.
