There Is Nothing Like a Monkey Sunlit Sunday

I know I'm a little late to the Sunlit Sunday party, but I spent yesterday out and about on a not so sunlit Sunday in New York. I spent the morning with a friend who is helping me with the decluttering project and went across town later in the day for a dinner get-together. It wasn't just chilly coming home, it was cold. I've gotten nonchalant about gloves and a scarf and I paid the price as I waited for the bus. It's gloves, scarf and knee socks Monday today.

As some of you know I am a fan of monkeys and I've been taking monkey pictures during my travels around New York City. Alas, I've only found stuffed monkeys, but they are cute and they've really cheered up this long, long winter.

Pepe, my favorite monkey is on the left, posed with the Pillsbury Dough Boy and Opus.

I found Curious George and friends in a window on the way home from yoga. 

Though this cute guy doesn't really qualify as a monkey I think he's perfect for this post, and I can't resist his smile.  

I took this picture during my day at the mall in Florida. Yes, there's nothing like a monkey, but there's nothing cuter than this little guy and his monkey friend. 

I worked in my book collection yesterday and I'm off to the post office to mail five books to new homes. Some are trades on BookMooch and two are going to friends. I also put a bag together to bring over to the library tomorrow and I hope to add a few more later today. 

As ever, thanks for visiting and thanks for comments. Take good care and have a great monkey Monday!

LOVE the monkey hanging off the stroller. Too sweet. BookMooch looks intriguing.

Love them all, but I've just got this thing going on for Opus!
(Would you believe, I've never ever read Curious George?)

Hope NYC's latest p-vortex (scuze!) is short-lived. We had to turn on the air conditioner yesterday!

Monkeys are so cute that you just have to smile when you see one. It's turned very cold here too. I have to say I don't like it at all I want to be warm again. Hopefully soon!

All of this "monkeying around" on your post puts a smile on my face. You must have fun spotting these creatures as you make your way through the city.
