Yesterday I found myself wondering
if I could now consider it Winter, and after
some research I realized that I can't.
At least not until December 21.
But it feels like it, doesn't it?
I had made lists of things that I was excited about
for fall, summer, so I'll continue on with winter.
Keep in mind this list counts til Dec 31st.
Because come January, all I will want to do
is get the hell out of NY. From now until
12/31 is the fun part of winter in the city.
Trust me on that.
*Hot Chocolate at the Ronnybrook Farm stand
at the Union Sq Greenmarket (last year it was $1.25)
*Watching the ice skaters-or actually skating- at
Rockefeller Center, Bryant Park or Central Park
*Walking around the 5th Avenue (in the 50's) area. Even if you never
venture over that way it's fun to see everything covered in lights.
*Staying in and watching holiday movies
*Baking Christmas cookies, at my house and at Carly's house
*Meandering around the holiday markets (and selling at them)
*Decorating the house
*The first snow, which hopefully will occur on a day
when I don't have to leave the house.
*Trips to Serendipity for frozen treats
Most of the list ends up being Christmas related,
oh well. I love the holidays. Just the thought
of doing all these things gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.
