A view from a room

It's dreaded gray today and the view from my apartment is very flat and dull, leaving me feeling heavy.  This weather has me longing for spring when the trees explode with these gigantic white flowers.  Last year I took these photos but they don't exactly reflect the brightness I felt when looking at them for a month... but you get the idea.  For some reason these trees made me want to throw a wedding!

Merry (belated) x-mas!

I really wanted to post this yesterday - I really did!  But I had a little too much wine and champagne at a dinner party on the eve.  Most of the day yesterday was spent napping and watching Christmas movies.  I think I would have done that regardless of the hangover.  Our neighborhood was silent and quite peaceful according to Mr. Z - I didn't step out at all.  Here are some festive photos of my block taken on the eve.  I really  love living here... it looks like what I think Paris would look like.

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!

I think about 3-4 years ago, I realized that travel during the holiday time is a stress I don't need to put myself through.  Something about the impending bad weather and flying at the same time as everyone else in the world seems like asking for trouble.  Why not see family and old friends during the summer months?

Since my stay-cation has officially started after lazing on the couch for 2 days - I'm making mental notes of the things I would do if I were visiting New York during the holidays.  I find myself taking this city for granted sometimes and need to fall in love again...  Another one of my goals this year is to be more active on this blog, so why not start it now with a mini personal holiday tour in NYC?  Of course now the challenge is to do some interesting things and not revert back to my usual series watching junkie behavior.  It'll be a fun challenge!  I think I'll start with going to the MET today, as I've heard they are showing Matisse's work.  Oh, and the Regarding Andy Warhol, Sixty Artists and 50 Years exhibition looks pretty interesting too - I love Cindy Sherman's work.

Wish me luck... and happy Christmas eve ~! :-*
