Whenever I return to NYC a part of me feels I've returned home. My heart always leaps a little as I see the approaching skyline. It's strange...coming from the girl whose heart is also entrenched in the New England coastline. I am thrilled to my toes to be spending almost 4 days here, and doing so with a dear amazing painter, Sue Danielson.  It's art in the city time!

Another photo from my commute last night.

I've been super busy these last few weeks.  Trying to get back into a routine but that will have to wait until next week because I'm away again this weekend.

Blizzard tonight.   My 20 minute commute took almost an hour and a half.  On the plus side, it's really pretty out.

Well…I had a belated birthday adventure planned for Saturday evening.  On Saturday morning I needed to cancel it.

Instead of outdoor ice skating, then walking for Chinese food, and then a short walk to my house for cake and fun, I spent the bulk of the weekend battling a nasty stomach bug.   Finally, after some organic ginger tea in the afternoon, I was able to keep some light food in my stomach.

This afternoon, although I'm feeling better, I've been drained.  It's been kind of nice to have free HBO this weekend because I couldn't do anything other than lay there and drift in and out with movies in the background.

I hope to reschedule for February.  And I'd rather not spend another weekend like this one.

Here is another photo taken on Sunday.  This was right across the road from the restaurant in Westport.   I love stone fences and had forgotten how much I enjoyed them until I moved to RI and saw them everywhere.

Taken while on my beach/snow adventure.  Such a great day!  

This my favorite of the 330+ photos I took.  I'm really proud of it.

Today's adventure was a day at the beach.  I have ached to go to the dunes after a snowfall and enjoyed a couple hours with a friend walking the dunes and shore.  It was cold and wonderful.

I really am a beach all seasons.

Before spending an afternoon painting, I wanted to spend some time outside in my new snow boots.  I took a walk along the canal on this gorgeous albeit below freezing day.

Taken yesterday evening before the big storm hit later in the night.

Part of today was delightfully spent with some good friends in their home.  Four of us, each curled up in our blankets, enjoying episodes of "Bomb Girls" on Netflix.  I've had it queued up for a while but had yet to watch it.  It's an excellent show.  

Phoebe, resident cuteness also part Boston Terrier and Mexican Xolo, revelled in today because she had a choice of 4 blankets and 4 pairs of laps.  She did hop around and enjoy all laps.
