I have been having some fun in these last few days of 2008...doing a little window shopping and eating out, which, leads to day dreaming of dancing around pink tinsel trees dressed in a cute little blue frock and shiny little shoes with a sparkling flute of champagne and a table full of tasty sushi platters from what might be the very best japanese restaurant ever.

even though I would LOVE to get in the car and drive it...anywhere really, I'm SO loving not being able to. it reminds me of being in europe. we're busy and exhausted. busy, hiking down and up the hill in the snow and ice to get to the market, hitting up a few local restaurants for some food and drink, making all kinds of food at home, keeping up the house, taking public transit downtown, snoozing by the fire, listening to music, taking pictures, making lists and planning all sorts of fun things to do. one of those things is to spend more time without the car. yes it is.

like hanging by the fire with rosy red cheeks after walking home in the snow.

- spending all day cooking thanksgiving dinner with my mom in our house. it's been a while and I loved every moment of it.
- meeting our friends new little baby boy...and getting to take a few pictures of him and his big brother.
- stepping outside to see spiders and their glorious webs.
- walking to farmers market on sunny cold sunday mornings.
- spending the 10th fall with the love of my life and taking our first stroll through central park in new york city.
- hitting up little art sales, picking up all sorts of little treasures.
- and lastly...that it decided to go out with a bang...a big snowy, frosty, wear big boots, bundle up, drink lots of hot coffee drinks, no driving, bang!

...what these doors look like this time of year? do they string little twinkling lights around them? I am picturing beautiful, happy people carrying bottles of wine opening them to find themselves surrounded by warmth and the most wonderful smells and, of course, hugs and kisses. smells of slow cooked sauces to be tossed with fresh pasta, herbed fresh fish, octopus maybe, everything drizzled in fruity olive oil. what I would give to be there now, oh what I would give to see these doors in december.
