Weren't we just clinking our champagne glasses and ringing in the new year?
I can't believe that we are already into the second month of 2015.
Here's something else I can't believe...
I've been doing this photo-a-day thing for an entire YEAR!!!
Who'd a thunk it?
Surely not me.
Surely not me.
Anyway, as I continue to find it both fun and challenging...
and long as you all seem to enjoy it,
I'm going to keep it going.
Until I don't.
January was as January is...
a lot of time spent indoors, and a bit of cabin fever.
But, we're marching closer to spring...ever. so. slowly.
Our last sunset in Hawaii. Cliff diver on Black Rock ready to light the torches, and take the nightly plunge.
Final morning in Hawaii. Checking out the Westin for my BFF and her hubs. I think they'll like it!
Contrasts: Yesterday, sand on the beach; today snow in the driveway. Yeah, it's great to be home (cough, cough). "I wanna go back to that little grass shack in Kealakekua, Hawaii," she sang.
Tulips to brighten the room and my mood.
One good thing about winter...it's grapefruit season!
Throwback to last winter - Chalkboard art outside a tea shop in SoHo, NYC.
Dried hydrangeas are finding me everywhere this winter. I've got quite a collection, now.
600+ fundraising invitations addressed, sealed and stamped. Let the donations pour in (please)!
Billy Joel, he is the entertainer, at Madison Square Garden.
What smells better than sauteing peppers and onions? Not much!
I thought I was hallucinating when I saw dozens of robins on my lawn in the snow. Turns out that it is rare to see robins in winter, but when you do, you'll see a flock. As they say, birds of a feather...
Packing up the goody box for the "Where is Ms. Toody?" winner. I can find something to buy anywhere and everywhere...and I found the hula girl tissue paper in a supermarket.
Chocolate with bacon...better than I thought. Would you eat it?
Hello, Kitty! A visitor on the back deck, while I was eating my breakfast. Could it be a secret admirer of Sadie's?
Lunch specials at Cafe Un Deux Trois on W. 44th Street in NYC, where I met a friend for lunch.
Sometimes a girl just needs her space.
Tree of lights outside local catering hall snapped on a drive-by with my phone (no, I wasn't driving).
Raining cats and dogs today. That's my backyard, not a lake!
Morning sunlight on a vase. My favorite photo of the month.
Greek cookies: Kourabethes and Melomakarona from my college friend's mom...who responsible for my love of Greek food. Thank you, Mrs. F! They were delicious!
You never know who you'll run into in the parking garage in New York City! I wonder what kind of car Big Bird drives... Firebird? Thunderbird? And what is he doing with Elmo's head?
Oh my darling, Clementine!
Took me an entire week, but I almost finished the NY Times Sunday crossword puzzle.
More snow today.
Egg whites with herbs de'provence on Trader Joe's Rustico bread. It's what's for breakfast.
The un-blizzard of 2015. 3 inches instead of the predicted 3 feet. I'll take it!
My first attempt at Chicken Enchilladas. Recipe from Lisa at Cooking With Curls. They were a hit!
Something new in Times Square, NY. Revlon's gigantic interactive billboard, where you can see yourself on the screen. There's me in the green circle. Elmo and Cookie monster were there, too.
Cousins dinner! Blurry faces are a family trait (they're all shy).
Wineglasses always look better half-full, except when reflecting morning sunlight.
