Yesterday was the shortest day of the year, and today was the warmest it’s been in months. I was driving about this afternoon, popping over to Crown Heights for a little barbecue and a few pretzels, and as I headed home in traffic and the sky darkened into night just a few minutes later than it did yesterday, I shot a few photos.
Here’s to longer days. And more sunshine.
Apparently, the North Pole is somewhere on the Upper East Side. Where? Not sure.
There’s a green market outside my apartment every Friday. You can never have enough apples.
And then there’s Cuban artist Alexandre Arrachea‘s No Limits exhibit – The Sherry Netherland in Union Square
I’m having fun being back in New York.
ps – Did you notice that it’s snowing on my blog? It starts every year on December first and continues until I’m not sure when. Love it.
pps – Want to make your chocolate chip cookies exactly the way you want them? Here’s a start. To make my own recipe even better (crispy crispy crispy), I should try 100% white sugar, melt the butter, use only baking soda, just barely mix all the ingredients together, and let the dough rest overnight before baking.
