I've hung up my dress-for-success clothes, and pulled my domestic "genes" out of storage.

My Photo Diary: September

September Photo Diary - Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

Is it really October? 
30 days hath September, 
but they went by so quickly,
that I actually missed my October 1 deadline for this post. 
I have the photos to prove that September actually happened,  
but it was kind of a blur.
Maybe it's because I've been crazy-busy,
with school starting...
working many hours at my new volunteer position...
 prepping for the Jewish holidays...
taking a photography class to learn how to use my new camera...
and celebrating my birthday! 

It hasn't left me much time for visiting other blogs,
which I feel badly about.
I'm trying to catch up here and there when I can.

OK, let's get to it,
because it will be November before we know it!

Walking by my first apartment building in NYC (the day I ran into my sister)...200 East 82nd Street, Apartment 6F. 
Cool fact: Walt Frazier lived there when I did.

Woke up to find this text from Junior GS. The sneaker lineup. At least they are all in his room for once.

Are you ready for some football? Wing night for NY Giants season opener. The food was good...the game? Not so much.

About 20 turkeys flew into my backyard. It figures, I had my 200MM lens on my new camera, and couldn't capture them all in one shot.

This is what I have to put up with when I'm doing a shoot. "Haha, Mom!" When I just showed this picture to Junior GS he said, "I knew that would come in "handy!" Clever boy.

72nd Street and 2nd Ave in NYC. I have NEVER seen a building decorated for Halloween in all my years in the city. Bravo!

So this happened just a few days after I bought it. I guess I didn't use enough hair spray on it to keep the squirrels from feasting.

    1. Thanks, AnnMarie! The squirrels are especially aggressive this year...worse than ever! I'm using a combo of hairspray and ground red pepper to keep them at bay - but if I don't keep up with it every other day, they start munching!

  6. First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! All the very best! Hmm...am I to assume that you were bestowed with a brand new automobile, AND a brilliant new camera, in addition to a Broadway play and a day at the theatah for this big occasion? Do you realize that when you scroll down the page, the image of your first apartment building expands to MEGA macro proportions?!! Okay, Goo Shoes, spill!

    Happy October!

    1. Thanks for the birthday wishes, Poppy! No, the car was not a bday present - our lease was up and so we traded it in. The camera was from my family, and the play from my sister. OOPS about the photo...I must not have changed the dimensions! Gotta fix that!
