Greetings from the Empire State Building

Actually, the greetings are from me at the Empire State Building. But for some reason I'm all turned around and the title pretty well describes my state of mind. I'm not sure why I'm more turned around this week, but I've misplaced a book I need to do the post I wrote about on Saturday. I've misplaced my scissors and I've misplaced my card list. I decided instead of trying to sort myself out, I'm going to do another post from my walk down Fifth Avenue last Friday and hope everything magically turns up. I know they're here somewhere, and when somewhere is three rooms I'm optimistic everything will be found.

I can't remember the last time I was inside the Empire State Building, possibly the summer of 1965 when I came to New York for a week of sightseeing with my parents. By the time I moved to New York in 1975 the World Trade Center had been built and that's where I took friends who were visiting New York and wanted to see the tallest buildings in the world. I love the Art Deco look and the gold and glittery Christmas tree in the lobby.  

I also admire the beautiful decorations and the windows to Fifth Avenue. I definitely think it's time to explore other New York treasures that I haven't visited in decades. There will be some beauty waiting for me to rediscover.

For the first time in a long time we got a good soaking of rain today, and more is predicted tomorrow. Usually I'm not a fan of rainy weather, but we're in serious need of rain and I 'm grateful for the blessing of a good rainy day. I'm especially glad there was rain in the south and heartsick about the fires in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. I spent a lot of time in Sevierville visiting friends when I lived in Tennessee and came to love the area dearly.

Now I'm off to search for my scissors and my book and my card list. If those are the worst of my mishaps I'm a lucky woman.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take very good care.

"Turned around" seems to be me as well...sigh...thank you for sharing the Empire State Building...it has been a long time since we have visited there.

Have a lovely day friend and looks like rain is on tap for us here in western/Southern Tier of NY today.

I've been meaning to do a post about 'stuff' I 'lost'. Recently I took out two new dish towels and now I only have one. It is driving me crazy. I cannot fathom what happened to it. Cheers.

I'm thankful for all the pictures you share. Hope you find those lost Items. It seems I've spent most of my life in the research department. Ha! Search and then search again.

I seem to be spending much more time looking for things these days. It keeps me moving and active.

I love your pictures of New York.. Oh, how I wish I could visit this year, but circumstance won't allow it. Hopefully, it will be easier next year.

Goodness, I hope you find everything. We lived in NYC for a bit ten years ago, but I didn't get out to see most the sights because of young kids. Need to go back one day and play the tourist.

I've heard that NYC around the holidays is a magical place with all the storefronts showing off their holiday spirit.

I love the architectural details in that building; NYC has a feast for the eyes and soul in this holiday season, which I love to see via your blog. I hope by now you have found all missing items, that is frustrating isn't it?

I look forward to someday seeing the Empire State Building!

Theresa said...

I will help you look for the missing items and you can go with me to the Empire State Building:) I wish! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Melinda said...

Would love to see this one day.

Hope you fund your lost things.
It is so good that I am not the only
one this happens to.

Don't be a stranger at Dreaming.
