This winter sure is stubborn. Waking up to temperatures hovering around freezing is getting really old. At least today there was no wind, in fact the weather network described it as calm. Definitely a step in the right direction. I went for a short, slow run in the park today and instead of sticking to the road, I was drawn toward the beauty of the reservoir. The sun was beaming down and it actually felt like it was warming up the pathway. Central Park is ready to just burst into bloom. Any day now, at least that is what I tell myself as I grumble and groan and search for gloves ;) We are all ready. Here are some pics of the reservoir, I hope you enjoy them and can grab a bit of sunshine for yourself. Have a great day! xo

Yesterday was the first day of Spring. Here in NYC, we had our last (it better be!!) winter storm. I don’t think there was a single person that was happy about it, no matter how pretty it looked. Nice in December, not so nice at the end of March. If it snows in April I am taking R’s advice and moving to Hawaii ;) As I walked to my INDOOR cycling class I was drawn to all the bikes parked on the side of the street, ready for action but covered in snow. Hopeful, yet a wee bit depressing at the same time. It has been a VERY long winter for most of us and like the bikes we are all ready to get our spring on if only the weather would co-operate! Here’s hoping to a weekend of melting, thawing and warming… Happy Saturday everyone. Enjoy the pics.

Today was that day when I didn’t have to think about how many layers I had to put on. I did not shiver and grumble all the way to the park. My nose was not cold. It didn’t hurt to breathe. I did not wear a hat. I did not slip on any patches of ice.
I DID bask in the sunshine. I DID hear the birds singing. I DID see tons of other runners. I DID blast some awesome tunes.
The snow is melting, the weather is perfect and my run this morning felt wonderful. The city is coming awake, slowly stretching out of hibernation. Bring it on!! Happy Wednesday my friends!! :)
I definitely did not like waking up to a winter snow storm yesterday. My body is craving longer days, sunny skies and warmer temperatures. It is sunny today but cold. This did not seem to bother the dog as he longingly looked out the window with his big brown eyes. He wanted to go for a long walk. I wanted to wimp out and hide indoors with a tea and a good book. But wow, am I really glad that Dopey-dog’s guilt trip won out. I am going to call today a bonus winter day.
As soon as we entered Central Park the wind died down and The temperature seemed a bit warmer. It was quiet and serene and I felt like I was a million miles away from the big city. The beauty was absolutely stunning. There were tourists, cross country skiers, runners and other dog walkers. When we passed each other we smiled and instead of grumbling about the long winter we commented on how breathtaking the park was. I am sharing the pics I snapped as I walked through the park. I hope you enjoy them. I am also reminded that sometimes begrudgingly heading out to complete a task you don’t want to do can lead to the best part of your day. Happy Friday! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend :)
February has turned out to be one long and frigid month. We are all sick of the weather. My youngest asked if we could move to Hawaii and honestly, I think it is beginning to sound like a pretty good plan.
On these cold winter days it is very tempting to dive back under the covers and stay in bed. It is even more tempting when a snoring dog is the perfect hibernation buddy. I have taken these pics of Dopey dog over the past few days. I am very jealous of his beautifully perfected nap anywhere technique. He is one cosy dog on a winter day. Hope you enjoy the pics and are managing to stay warm. The birds are chirping and the sun is shining today. Spring is coming :)

The temperature hit almost 30 degrees today and the sun was out. After the frozen tundra of the last few days, it was practically balmy out. We took advantage of the weather by getting out of the apartment and shaking off some of the cabin fever. It was joyful! Here are the pics of the our walk. Hope you enjoy them. Happy Wednesday my friends! =)
