weekending

It's been a random and quiet weekend around here. We took Willow to the vet yesterday for a check up. Can you believe it's been a year since she was so sick and we almost lost her? I hate to even think about it. She got a clean bill of health yesterday (you know, for an old girl). We took a shortcut through one of the subway stations and down the elevator to get there a little faster. I love this tunnel, it looks kind of futuristic doesn't it?


I loved this random message on the sidewalk. I know I am guilty of this--head down texting and emailing on the go. Sometimes I feel like I miss the actual moments when I am so busy documenting them all. This was a good reminder to stop and enjoy the day. You know, after I snapped this photo and instagrammed it...


In the afternoon we took a short walk on The Highline while we were out and about in Chelsea.


And we finally got a little bit of sun. The weather forecast for the weekend was sunny and warm, but I must be missing something because all I see are cloudy gray skies, except for this one little break we had. I snapped this shot for 52 Photos Project--the theme this week was "let the sun shine in" but the weather was really not cooperating much until this moment :)


All in all it was a pretty random weekend. Hope you are enjoying yours!

Christy -- so happy to see you back at YSB this week. Love your shots and I agree about the sunshine -- it's been hit or miss this weekend.

I'm so glad Willow is doing ok. I recently had some kitty problems, and nearly lost my baby... eesh.

And yes, I agree, that sidewalk message is fantastic.

Sandra said...

I love that sidewalk message, such a great reminder in this age of sophisticated technology!
So glad your dog got a good bill of health.
We are getting hit and miss blue skies one minute and grey the next too!
Have a great new week.

I love the graffiti. I've found some wonderful needed messages the same way. The funnel, the lighting, the DoF... all great.

I need this reminder a lot more than I'd like to admit!

The sidewalk message is so appropriate for today's world. And I always love seeing photos from other people's home towns and cities.

Even before texting it was too easy to get caught up in life and miss the moment - - - and the sky.

Caroline said...

Susan said...

Random but good I'd say. I love this tunnel and the over view of the streets. Funny what you said on that message (after I instragramed it! LOL) Happy day Christy and super happy for the bill of good health for Willow. All those prayer and warm thoughts from last year have taken you and her a long way.

Loving the flow & glimpses of your weekend.

Maybe a little random, but it looks all kind of nice, U.M.!
(I'm very happy to hear Willow is doing so much better these days, too - that's wonderful news)!

We have had almost TOO much sun here in FL. Glad a little sun made it up to NY. =)

Love that message on the sidewalk. I am sometimes guilty of that as well. It is really important to just take in the moment and enjoy the day from time to time.

Really lovely photos! Found you on SIMC, will be coming back for more :-)

Unknown Mami said...

Great posts. You know it wasn't until I moved to San Francisco even before texting was a part of my life that I realized I walked looking at the ground all the time. When I looked up, I was amazed at how much I was missing.

Lynne said...

Great photos! Glad Willow had a good vet visit!

Beautiful photographs and wonderful thoughts...I love the texting message! I just read about a town in NJ that is ticketing people for texting and walking, think of how much they are missing!

One question: can dogs ride the subway in NY? How nice that would be!
