Memorial Day flags in Abingdon Square Park NYC thanks to my sister Mary for the photo.
My sister saw this sign outside the West Village Knit & Needle and sent me these photos.
My sister captured two different Christmas windows in NYC in her neighborhood. It’s tricky shooting through the glass. Seeing as I’m not going anywhere I appreciate the blog contributions.
One with a mouse theme and the other a Christmas village in the Pharmacy window.

My sister made Raffetto’s Wild Mushroom Ravioli and Broccoli tonight. Parmesan cheese on top.
After we ate, we took a walk. No gelato tonight. We already had an Italian ice earlier in the afternoon
I had raspberry Italian ice from Rocco’s Pasticceria
It was such a lovely evening. Lots of people out to dinner and enjoying the summer night.

When we arrived in the city Tuesday evening after the long train ride from Pittsburgh we walked down to the Hudson River after supper. It was dark so I didn’t see the colorful crocheted blankets on the trees.
Then yesterday we were on Hudson Street and WHOA- there they were brightening up the landscape.
Here’s an article about the creator of the project – Holly Boardman owner of Musée Lingerie on Christopher says ” It takes about one hour to crochet a single square, and we have over 1,880 squares on our Christopher Street block. That took about 80 days!”

Here’s the first one I spotted on Hudson Street and then we rounded the corner on Christopher…

Bedford and Grove Streets corner. Greenwich Village. New York City. You see tour groups checking it out, snapping photos. So that’s exactly what we did when we were visiting my sister in NYC Thanksgiving 2015.

Someone placed a bouquet in the crook of her arm. Today’s post remembers friend and poet Christina Murdock who passed one year ago today, a week short of her thirtieth birthday.
from Let it Be by John Lennon and Paul McCartneyWhen I find myself in times of trouble Mother Mary comes to me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. And in my hour of darkness She is standing right in front of me Speaking words of wisdom, let it be. Let it be, let it be. Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
