I Would Write a Sonnet Pink Saturday

If I was a poet -- which I'm not -- I would write a sonnet about spring in New York City. Long awaited, finally here and absolutely gorgeous. I'm a blogger and not a poet and instead I'm going to join my friends at Pink Saturday to extol the virtues of a walk along Madison Avenue yesterday, a perfect spring morning.

 Blossoms at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, Madison Avenue
 
My only goal for yesterday was going to my annual checkup first thing in the morning. I saw a new physician at a new practice and had no idea how long to expect to wait. No waiting and a good visit -- fingers crossed for the lab results -- and at 10:00 a.m. I had a beautiful spring day and no plans. I thought about going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which was just a few blocks away, but I hated the thought of going inside. So I didn't. I walked, took pictures and enjoyed the day.  
 
 

Tulips, cherry blossoms and a memorial to firefighters lost on September 11.
 
My walk took me past some of my favorite stores...
 
 
I didn't stop to try anything on, but I loved the bright colors.
 
I spent the most time looking at this window. I have a few books on my reading list -- always do -- but I found a few more I'd like to add.
 
I fought temptation -- and this time I won -- but the black and white cookies kept calling my name.
 
After walking to Seventy-second Street I made my way to Michael's to buy supplies for a mini-craft project. I am happy to announce that I am half-way through and pleased with the results. I hope to finish next week and I'll share what I've done in a post.  
 
My cold/allergies are still giving me a kick, but otherwise the good news is that I'm sleeping on a New York schedule again. We've got another gorgeous spring day today and I hope it's as pretty where you are, too. 
 
As always, thanks for visiting and take care!

We don't have nearly as much color here yet, but my allergies are going full-steam ahead. Ain't life grand, lol.
