Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Last Saturday...This was the scene as I walked from the eye doctor to study group. It was cold, but clear and sunny. 



Last night a few blocks from Lincoln Center.

Today there is lots of snow -- can't tell how many inches, but it looks a little less than a foot. It is sunny and cold and so pretty. I haven't ventured out after my outing yesterday, but I did enjoy walking around. I was "Young Victoria" and then had dinner at a Chinese Restaurant a few blocks north of where these pictures were taken. Except for the Ugg store, where there was a line to be admitted and the post office, where I had a forty five minute wait, neither the stores, nor the restaurants were crowded.

Last week went from awful -- work-wise -- to very awful. I'd come home at night with a headache, eat some dinner and go to sleep. By Friday I was able to get a little more optimism and today I'm feeling pretty good. Yes, circumstances are dire, but I will figure out how to keep going and not be miserable. Blessedly, it's a four day week, and I've mailed packages, will write some cards this afternoon and  catch up on blogs.

Hugs to all and wishes for a wonderful week!

HI BUTTERCUP!!!!
I'm so sorry about your bad week, it is sad when things have to be miserable for us. I have had a very bad headache for a few days now, I think I'm trying to get a sinus infection, after I take some sudafed and tylenol it goes away, but my head is full of yucky stuff, maybe it is holding out til after Christmas!!!!!! That would be so nice!!!!!! I say all the snow on tv, how awesome!!!! It does look beautiful!!!!!!Makes it look so festive!!!!!
I wanted to wish you a very Happy Hannukah!!!! and a Blessed New Year!!!!!!
love and hugs,
jamie
thanks for all your nice comments throughout the year!!!!!!

Well first of all hope your headache gets better. Isn't it funny - Christmas time is stressful and probably Hanukkah too - because we all want it to come out just right!

Anyway thanks for taking the time out to take and post these beautiful pictures of New York.
