Thought I share a handful of photos I've taken from my living room window over the last few months.
It's been cold and grey and ice flowed down the Hudson.
Sometimes the sun shone but it was bitterly cold...
that's -15C/5F and RealFeel -30C/-22F, brrrrrrrrrrrr
...and the ice on the Hudson continued to grow.
This is how things looked down at street level.
Pretty cold yeah?
I did enjoy this pop of colour as I crossed Target car park one morning on my way back from the dog groomer.
It was a painful walk over there when my eyes watered from the cold wind it turned to icicles on my eyelashes - but look at these freshly groomed cuties, well worth it :D
And this made me giggle just last Friday morning - thoughtful of them to dig those seats out but I'll pass on sitting in them.
Last week I ventured out to Lion Brand Yarn Studio on 15th Street, Manhattan (read more about the store here).
Pics of their latest store window display, I love how they change this and it's always something eye-catching and wonderful.
And the purpose of my visit to the store?
To purchase the yarnit ready for my trip back to England.
I forgot to take pics of the yarnit in use before I left but trust me it's AMAZING, I've no idea how I ever managed without it, even in the home, let alone how fantastic it'll be on the plane. Take a look at their website for how it works, apols for not showing it off better here, but it's so worthy of a blog post mention I'm doing it anyway.
I fly in a few hours and I'm so excited to see Mum, Flicky and Joe on this trip - we're celebrating English Mother's Day and Mum's 80th birthday while I'm there and we've lots and lots planned. I've got a few posts scheduled while I'm away so I won't be disappearing altogether.
Here's hoping for much, much warmer weather by the time I return. See you in a few weeks :D
