Robbie Goes to the City!

A group of us took the PATH into "Wonderland", the other day. We had lunch at "Eataly", a restaurant/grocery store on 23rd St. Whatever they serve you, you can buy the ingredients for, right there. It's huge, noisy and rather amazing. The word "crazy" kept coming up. I've never seen anything quite like it and we had a blast, eating great food, sipping wine and watching people shop for groceries. Wine-sipping was, of course, limited this trip, as we had responsibility for precious cargo.

Robbie slept for a while, then woke up, staring at all the food on the table. At three months he finds other-people's food fascinating, though he only drinks "Mommy Juice", right now.

Doesn't he look like "The Flyling Nun" in that picture? Could he be cuter? His Aunt, Natalie, was very considerate to put a napkin on his head to keep the crumbs off, don't you think?

All in all, it was a wildly pleasant adventure and I hope to go again, soon.

Robbie has gone with his Mommy and Daddy back to West Virginia...sigh... We're SO missing him!!!

Visualizing a Sunny Day!

Right now, it's lovely out. I'm not sure about the temperature, but the sun is shining and the sky is blue. All around Jersey City the trees are beginning to bloom and daffodils are popping up their shiny, yellow faces.

I love Spring.

The other day, while exploring one of my favorite thrift shops, I stumbled on a small, framed print. It was an art work of the Boat House in Central Park. Not sure of the original medium, but the Japanese Magnolias were in bloom and all the little, toy boats were sailing around. It's a wonderful, colorful picture.....and of course I bought it. I've scoured the Internet, searching for it, because I'd love to know more about it, but luck, so far.

Any way, it's such a lovely, little scene and I realize it's that time of year! The trees are beginning to bloom and the people will be sailing their little boats, again!

So I am planning, on Monday or Tuesday, to make a trip into the city. I'm taking my camera! I want to get a shot from the same angle as my little print. So I'm visualizing an amazing day with sun shining and birds singing! I love Central Park in Spring.

Since I haven't taken any pics there, yet this year, here's one I took last year around this time!

Daffies in Central Park

Happy Spring, everyone!
