As usual, I'm hopping from here to there, and everywhere in between!!! But I still love reading your blogs and hope to get more posting done on my own!
We took a quick trip last week, and had such a good time! We went to New York and spent a few days, enjoying the fun and the big city hustle and bustle! I love to visit New York--been there many times and I never get tired of it! We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, and this was the wonderful view from our room:
We always take a Gray Line Tour--it's the best way to see the sights. This time, we took a harbor cruise, too, and that was fun. It's been years since I've done that. Here we are, enjoying the sights on a really windy day!
This is a great view of Lower Manhattan, with the new Freedom Tower. I love the tiny little red helicopter in the upper left--
Because I'm a church organist, no trip would be complete without visiting St. Patrick's! This is the gorgeous and huge organ there:
On the tour, we stopped and saw Strawberry Fields, a memorial to John Lennon in Central Park. I've seen it several times, and I still feel sad when I visit. It was decorated for Halloween, and people are always there, singing, crying, and taking pictures. Sad.
Night time is beautiful in New York--here are the lights at Rockefeller Center, near the skating rink. The flags around it are so beautiful. I really love New York, and we had a wonderful time!
I actually did a little stitching on the plane! I am almost finished with this little Prairie Schooler freebie card--a Halloween design! I'm always stitching on the wrong holiday! But at least I'm stitching! I am making a solemn vow to start stitching on a Prairie Schooler Santa! I have all of them and have never stitched a single one!! That is really too bad because they are so lovely! I also want to stitch those wonderful freebies from Plum Street Samplers--The 12 Days of Christmas! I really like those, too!
You may remember that I have been having some work done at the house--I have gotten back most of the upholstery!!! They were SUPER fast! I am loving all of it! Here is a tiny peek of the kitchen chairs...I love leopard! These were oak chairs with sorta flat bottoms--they puffed them up and they are so comfortable now! These were at my mother's and had rust velvet seats--I'm not sure what she would think of the leopard--but she'd probably be glad we're enjoying them! I will post bigger photos when the room is finished!
This week I started my new organist job at the cathedral, and so far it's been good! (Ha--that's funny because I haven't had to play yet!!)
Thank you for visiting and please come back again! I still have a small stack to finish, but I don't think I have any Christmas things ready at the moment! It's time to get the Thanksgiving tree up, so I'll be showing that soon! Even though I haven't been posting regularly, I've enjoyed seeing what all of you are doing!!
