It's a Blue Monday Without You


I'm not sure that as suggested by my blog buddy and terrific photographer, Nancy, that I am going to be able to do a series of bright subway cars. I did see a red car in addition to the pink and blue, and I was hoping for a lime green, which I didn't see. What I also didn't see in my travels for the last few days were very many Christmas decorations. I steered clear of the busier areas that are decorated, including the big department stores. I will be making a few trips to see the decorations -- definitely the tree at Rockefeller Center and a few of the big stores -- but so enjoyed not being in crowds over a busy, busy weekend. The areas I visited had very few decorations. I'm not sure if it's cost cutting or a sign of the sadness that's in the city. 

Though today was hectic -- and snow is expected tomorrow -- I am still relatively relaxed. I spent a good hour tonight shopping for baby presents on Amazon for a baby shower on Sunday. The shower is for a friend and colleague's daughter. I had a wonderful time at Amanda's bridal shower and wedding and so looking forward to celebrating with her at this happy time.

Wishes for warm and cozy!

I think it was a blue Monday for lots of folks going back to work yesterday. Baby shower shopping though is a very fun thing to do and I'm sure time spent shopping was enjoyable, especially when you didn't have to go out. Stay warm!

That sounds like a lotta fun..:). I fear snow, I am so afraid of this winter...aside from the Apocalypse issue :).

I bet the decorations will be up soon! Everyone needs that up there to get in the spirit! I pray that healing will come to all who are struggling! How is your friend Mike and family doing? Have a blessed day dear friend, big hugs from Georgia!

A lovely blue subway car! I wish I could go with you to see the decorations in the city, but since I'm an ocean away I'll just enjoy the sights through your blog :)

Buttercup, One day I would love to see the Rockefeller center at Christmas time. All the ice skaters and decorations. Take care in the snow. xoxo, Susie

It's been my dream for so many years to see Rockefeller Center aglow during the holidays....
When you go, please take an extra gaze for me?

I don't blame you for staying away from the busier shopping areas.
Our family has enjoyed baby shopping for my great niece who is due in Jan. So many pretty things to choose from.
Hope your week has been a good one.
