Moved to Brooklyn!

It's taken me a little while to get quasi-settled...but I've finally been able to start getting some pictures again around my new home in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn...I hope you can follow me over there to 365 Days in Brooklyn

Day 215


I want an ocean and some sunscreen lotion

Take me to the beach with a thousand pretty girls in reach

I, I, I wanna be a lifeguard (help,help,help,help)

I, I, I wanna guard your life

I, I, I wanna be a lifeguard (lifeguard, lifeguard)

Hardly any clothes (lifeguard)

Sand between my toes (lifeguard)

White stuff on my nose

Day 213


ooohhh...I've been a b-a-a-a-a-d blogger. I've been away and missed it. In my defense, I've been working. A LOT. But, it's a new month, time for new goals....and I want to return to posting here regularly...and so, today, in honor of JUNE (can you believe it's JUNE already??), this wonderful garden from around the corner...with their tuteurs and garden statuary and fab.u.lous orangey red poppies (YUM). Welcome to June.

Day 211


There's a whimsical mural painted in an alleyway between some stores on Main St...the last time I was by there I saw they'd painted over one side of it - so sad! Fortunately I had taken this shot awhile back...and I just thought it would be nice with some cherry blossoms outside the Islip Library I took on Mother's Day but never used....

"The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall, and with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost.
It rises now before me, a dark and silent barrier between all I am,
and all I would ever want to be."

Day 174 (The Return of Bettye)


ahhh...between this and that, I've just been unable to do anything here for many weeks...but things are a little more settled right now and hopefully I'm Back!

driving around today, looking for signs of spring in Islip (amazingly, the only real signs I saw were in my own yard! http://365daysinmyhouse.blogspot.com/), some signs I DID see were these...posted by a family who lost their dear Golden Retriever early in February...and they're basically pleading with people to Drive More Carefully...
