It was a glorious Sunday in New York today. The air was clear, the sun was bright -- though not too hot -- and the city was festive. Whether it was because it was Mother's Day or the beautiful weather or a combination of both, it was lovely. Any qualms about living here just disappeared and I enjoyed every sunny minute of the day. A high point was walking to Michael's -- with two coupons -- and discovering my major purchase was an unmarked sale item. Hurray! With my gift card -- thanks, K! -- and the coupons my total came to $1.57.
One of the activities in good weather in New York is the street fair. Major streets are closed and vendors of all types set up shop for the day. It's annoying when your bus is routed blocks out of the way, but fun to stroll down Broadway, where these pictures were taken last week, and try valiantly to stick to healthy eating. The fair I encountered today was on Amsterdam Avenue, but background excepted, it's very similar to these pictures which I took last week on Broadway.
The subway t-shirts caught my eye.
There were a lot of fun things for children.
...and a very cute puppet show, which kept this child-at-heart interested.
After carefully looking at the Blogger FAQs I can now link and easily post again and I promise that I will not play with the controls again...Ever! I am so happy to have the blog back to where it was a week ago before I went exploring.
The whirl of work starts again tomorrow, but it's a short week. I'm off to Rochester on Friday for my friends' son's graduation. I was in Rochester last year for David's college graduation and we will be back as he receives his graduate degree. His brother will be a senior at Rochester next year, so happily it will be three in a row.
Wishes to all for bright and blessed week!
