Thanksgiving Treat

I went to New York to gift myself with a visit to my daughter and her husband for Thanksgiving. A nice, quiet ride up on Amtrak and dinner ready when I arrived, along with my "grandchildren" patiently waiting for me.

Meredith had to work on Friday, so I wandered around the city by myself, one of my favorite things to do. I started out at the Fulton Fish Market area and wound up on a bench at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge, where I sat and knit for a while, just enjoying the gorgeous day.

While I was there, I took a couple of pictures for tourists, but this guy told me he wanted to use his timer. It didn't take me long to see why: he had set it on video so he could record his marriage proposal! Isn't that so cool?

Christmas tree at the Fulton shopping area, with lots of cobblestone streets and boutique shops that I didn't visit. Much too beautiful a day to be indoors.


I even ate my lunch on a park bench at Union Square Park.




After lunch, I visited the Lion Brand Yarn Studio to see their gorgeous window.


Despite the unseasonably warm weather, the day definitely put me in the mood for Christmas! Hope you enjoyed your weekend, no matter what you did.



  1. Your trips to Brooklyn look so idyllic! What a great way to celebrate T-giving. I don't know how you manage being out of town so many weekend during the school year! I hope that means your year is going well.

  2. It sounds perfect in every way.
