For some reason my body and mind do not like to sleep in anymore. I guess by default that makes me a morning person. I have been embracing this early wake up on Saturday mornings by heading to Central Park with Memphis where he runs off leash and I get some exercise walking at the most beautiful time of the day. Today it was enjoying the calm before the snow.

I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon putting away all the Christmas decorations and tidying up the apartment. The snow did begin to fall. I love looking out my apartment window watching it blow all around. It is like being inside one giant snow globe.

There really is something magical about fresh snow, or maybe that is the Canadian in me talking 😉  Whatever it is, I always feel like I need to get out and go for a walk. So I grabbed Memphis’ leash and off we went. It is the Southern Gentleman’s second time in the snow. I do not think he shares my enthusiasm quite yet. I would say that he tolerates it.

 

It was quite blustery down by the river and we are both happy to be back home in the snow globe watching the white stuff fall outside. Time for a cup of tea, a warm blanket and a good movie. Memphis has already found his spot for the afternoon =)

May the beauty of the day-

Lift your spirits,

Lighten your load,

Warm your heart,

Free your soul,

Ready your smile. 

Enjoy the day my friends. 💜

It is a gorgeous sunny afternoon. There is a lovely breeze coming off the river. Perfect for a little baseball or for lounging around watching baseball practice. And that is exactly what I am doing. Enjoying the moment, taking a breather, appreciating the simple joys in life. Pretty soon it will be time to make dinner, help with homework, tidy the apartment, take out the dog, deal with reality. But not right now.

Cherish the day my friends. 😀

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! =)

Dopey immediately started giving me the puppy dog eyes as soon as I walked back into the apartment this morning. The sun was streaming in the window, the air is crisp and cool, a perfect day to stroll along Riverside Park. So, that is exactly what we did. The leaves are barely starting to turn but there is beauty all around. D-dawg was on full squirrel alert and I even caught a glimpse of a few handsome firefighters in full dress uniform heading to FDNY Memorial Day. Sometimes you just have to take a moment to breathe and appreciate the little gifts. Today the dog reminded me to take advantage of the beauty outside. Hope your week is going well. Enjoy the day and just keep on walking 😉

The fog and sun combination put on an incredible show this morning in New York City. After I did the morning school drop off and coffee I felt the pull to head down to the river with Dopey dog to take some pics. I was rewarded with a spectacular display by mother nature. At times the fog was so thick you could barely see a few feet in front of you and at other times the sun was so bright it was dazzling. What a treat! It was the perfect little mid-week escape. I hope you enjoy the pics. Come take a walk with me…

Have a wonderful day everyone! Happy Wednesday =)
