Oh, this weather! We broke some temp records Thanksgiving weekend and just when I thought it would turn around and start getting cold for good, we get another golden weekend of sunny, 60 degree days. This weather’s been super awesome. This is the High Line in Fall. I don’t remember if I’ve been up there during this time of year. Despite the warm temperatures, the trees are all shedding their leaves and starting to look wintery against the sky.
 
So far Holiday!Cookie!Madness! has been manageable, partly due to the fact that I’m not working on any big freelance projects right now which is enabling me to jump into the week of tedious tasks without any sort of pressing time crunch pulled in different directions. How civilized. I remember last year I had a big deadline right in the middle of our string of 9 Brooklyn Flea dates. We struggled to keep the table stocked as well as man the booth so I ended up having to sit behind the table while working on my laptop trying to get these designs done for a client, bundled in my big down sleeping bag coat and fingerless gloves. It was freezing in the section where we were at. We dubbed it the “Meat Locker”. Good times. Sorta.
 
I know it’s early in the season yet, but maybe we’ll get by this month without any break downs or crying?

    Looks beautiful. We have snow on the ground here in Iowa, with no chance of it melting anytime soon, and I’m relearning the concept of windchill. You’ve got me dreaming of a stroll on the High Line (without the need for down) with cookies for snack 🙂

    Beautiful captures – I love that first one of the street with all the hustle and bustle of the traffic. I hope you get by the holiday season with minimal tears too!

    Ha! I think it’s possible- no breakdowns or crying. Especially if the weather keeps things mild and sunny. How can we not stay sane when the sun keeps shining on us like this?

    Hope everything goes smooth without crying. You can:) I LOVE the top picture as well. It made me want to go back to NYC. Being there enables you to sense that the world is moving. Love reading your blog so much. Have a wonderful Monday!

    Because you’re wondering, the east coast of Australia has stolen your winter! It’s officially the coldest start to summer in 50 years here.

    I’ve not been to New York, but your photos fill me with a warm sense of nostalgia 😉

    Wishing you all the best during Holiday!Cookie!Madness!
