New York, New York

this will be the last post until we return, and get back into the groove thing- the weather forcast has changed drastically (for the good) since I looked last week- cold but sunshine!

a little portfolio for our travel documents and info!

not sure if i can put a mini-album together during the trip complete with thoughts and feelings- might get creative with restaurant napkins, or something small and easy to manage-hope to do better with the trip to Vegas in a few weeks.

tonight will get packing- got my quart size baggie ready for contact solution just in case luggage is lost or delayed) plan to check the pilot case as I hate trying to squeeze things into the overhead. also, trying to decide on which knitting projects, the victorian lace is at a good "no-brainer" point, and i have the nymph yarn to start another pair of sock, but i have one more spicy sock to do- hmmmmm, or perhaps the baby blanket for a co-worker i've started on- we'll see . . .
plans will be to go to karen's on friday night and stay over since we'll be leaving at 0 dark 30- sounds like a good (and fun) plan-

we only have a few goals for this trip

1) visit as many museums as we can
2) eat some great food
3) watch people and see the city
4) visit SVA
5) have FUN, FUN FUN

i'll leave you with a few song lyrics to set the tone-
'cause I'm leaving on a jet plane (John Denver)since i'm in a new york state of mind, (Billy Joel), so start spreadin' the news, I'm leaving today (saturday) I want to be a part of it: New York, New York. -(Frank Sinatra)

actually there are a TON of songs about NY, and with NY in the title, google it, i swear!


PS, happy ♥ Day

sounds like a wonderful time - enjoy!!! (and I vote for socks as a traveling knitting project - especially a first sock so you don't have to worry if it's matching the one you left at home)
