Sweatpants Day

I'm feeling a little groovy...and that feels really good. Thank you all for your get well wishes. They were very effective -- with a little help from the pharmacy. No more sneezing or coughing and I am feeling more energetic. I did go out this afternoon to my study group and a quick run to the grocery. Otherwise, I've been indoors and in sweat pants and it's a great treat. So much so, that I'm thinking of declaring one weekend day a week this winter "Sweatpants Day" an actual Buttercup holiday and celebrating it. Sounds cozy, doesn't it?

My idea of this celebration is my gray sweatpants, fuzzy slippers, a turtleneck, the New York Times and a cup of cocoa. I'm going to save some candy canes and use them to stir the cocoa. Now it seems the norm, but in February when I can hear the wind howling outside, it will be a terrific treat. Anyone want to join me?

Christmas Lights at Gracie Mansion

I've been taking pictures throughout the city of the decorations and took this one last week at Gracie Mansion, the Mayor's residence. The path to the right leads up to the building. 

I have ordered New Year's cards, as displayed on the right of the blog. It was easy and fun and again thanks to my friends at Shutterfly. If you would like to receive one please email me at with your address. I'd be delighted to share them with my blog friends.

Wishes for a warm and cozy Sunday!

Awwww, I LOVE sweatpants (aka, my glad-rags)!
Wonderful tradition you've suggested ... we can all celebrate together in different places!

I think today will be a sweatpants day for me. It's pouring rain right now and we are expecting several inches of snow. Perfect, don't you think?

I am now enjoying many sweatpants days and I do think it is a great idea for anyone to do. Winter is my hibernation time and going out is no longer a necessity for me. I did it for more years that I like to remember and getting your rest is important to get recharged for a new week. I'm so glad you are feeling better!

Sweats are staple AND a must in our wardrobes.
We wear them ALL the time. Most weekends are sweats weekends for us, unless we are "going"
somewhwere that would it would be better to wear jeans or pants.
Have a cozy weekend!
