July 24 - 28

Getting back into the groove, slowly but surely.  

July 28, 2009: The gym got awesome new treadmills, that have touch screens, and ipod docks, so amazing! Yes I was that person taking a picture while on the machine, I am a wack job, I know. 

July 27, 2009: I drove by an entire lane that was shut down for repairs, they seem to be making some progress, eh? Benefit of the doubt, it was noon, and hot so it had to be break time, right?

July 26, 2009: Shiva ended today, we needed a mindless activity to beat the heat, so we went here, makes sense, right? We got some chatzkes and had some laughs at the crap some people buy.

July 25, 2009: Looking for a box of legos for friend's kids to play with I found in a bin of dolls my first baby doll, even though I moved onto my current (yes I admit it) comfort animals, I brought her up for extra comfort during this time. 

July 24, 2009: Again an old picture, sorry, no good shots nor the energy to take any.  This was Zayda and I right before I left for my freshman year at AU, so almost exactly 3 years ago.

July 18 - 23

Sorry for the delay - life took me on another journey this week.

July 23, 2009:  Another day where I had no drive to find something to photograph, this was all the grandchildren and my Bubbe and Zayda at my bat mitzvah, it was also their wedding anniversary.  My sister was 19, Josh was 15, I was almost 13, Shoshana was 6, and Yona was 4, His bar mitzvah is this fall, and we will be so sad Bubbe and Zayda won't be there to share in the simcha.  

July 22, 2009: I awoke to a nice sunny morning, and there was a barge slowly turning around on the river.  It was just me and the barge out on the patio (okay I was on the patio, the barge was on the river, you get the idea) and it was a nice peaceful moment.

July 21, 2009: There is a movie shooting down the street from my uncle, Going the Distance, it was the fun part of the week to drive by and hope to get a glimpse of a star, no such luck but I did drive by while they were shooting!

July 20, 2009: We went back to our roots to bury Zayda.  We passed good old exit 36 where I grew up on our way to exit 17 and Woodbine.

July 19, 2009: Today my Zayda died.  I had no energy to take a new picture but I love this one from when I was around 7 or 8 months old, I loved him so so much.

July 18, 2009: The worst day of my summer cold, thankfully it began to get better after that, but colds are no fun!

July 13 - 17

What a busy week!

July 17, 2009: They still have pay phones, really? Wow!

July 16, 2009: We are official in our new house, our name is on the door!

July 15, 2009: I will be honest, I hate to parallel park.... really.  But in NY it is a requirement on all the main shopping streets.  I nailed this one - and didn't have pay the meter, even better!

July 14, 2009: I think it is interesting that I now live in NY and my bike is inside, and in my room.... how metropolitan.  Okay, it was also a last resort photo for the day. Hey I am honest!

July 13, 2009: I had Jury Duty today, and FG came to check out the proceedings.  I got really lucky and was released after one day! No more NY service for 6 years!

July 6 - 12

Here is the last week, sorry for the long break!

July 12, 2009: We met an amazing artist today, Michael Albert.  His works are collages, some use food product letters to make words, so cool!

July 11, 2009: Hanging with Zayda - he is doing better, but still has ways to go.  

July 10, 2009: We hosted our first shabbas guests in our new home.  We had Erin, Yonatan, Avigayil and their Aunt Dorothy over for a lovely time.  

July 9, 2009: So it seems I happen to like finding cool pictures of license plates.  I find this one cool, especially since the first series began in NY.

July 8, 2009: I figured if I posted a picture of a new goal online it would make me accountable.  I have vowed to be much better at protecting my eyes by wearing sunglasses when driving, and outside and the like - so far so good.

July 7, 2009: These are the spices we need to buy the most frequently.  Not basil, oregano, etc - but these, we love curries!

July 6, 2009: This is Sivi-bear.  We have one that looks like Sufi too.  She got unpacked today and is now "home" with us.  It has been 10 months since she died and 5 since Sufi died and we miss them so much!

July 1 - 5

Happy July!

July 5, 2009: We spent a sunny afternoon at the NY botanical gardens Edible Garden exhibit.  It was really awesome and there is much more to explore over the summer!

July 4, 2009:  We saw live and in person fireworks yesterday and were lazy and hung at home to watch the Macy's massive display on tv.  Do we get points for the show we watched actually being in our state?

July 3, 2009: After 33 days of rain between June 1st and today we had an amazing long lasting rainbow! It reminded me of G-d's promise to not flood the world.  It was a good thing to see, because after so many days of rain, I was downright ready to built an ark!!

July 2, 2009: Sun shower! I mean sun downpour!!! It went on for a good 45 minutes!!!

July 1, 2009: Happy 2 years in NY! We celebrated with a yummy dinner at our favorite Indian place!
