My photo doesn’t do justice to the beautiful and mesmerizing full moon that appeared back in September. I never had an opportunity to post it. Ilva’s recent blue moon photo has inspired me to post mine now. If you haven’t seen her wonderful and dramatic shot, please go see it.

I remember reading somewhere that strange things are supposed to happen when a full moon occurs — werewolves become more active, people do crazy stuff, the dogs howl at the moon, the tides are affected, etc…

Happily, as far as I know, everything was fine. Nothing out of the ordinary happened in the city. My dogs didn’t howl, I didn’t howl… ;-)

I want to send my dear Cindy from Gorgeous & Delicious (formerly Cindy’s Kitchen) a Happy, Happy Birthday, today! May all your dreams continue to come true, my dear friend! Keep baking and creating all those gorgeous and delicious foods and blogging about them!

Have a great week, everyone! And don’t forget to click on the photos for larger images.

New York Monday # 43: The Window Washers

October 2, 2006 | Filed Under New York Monday | Leave a Comment 

I happened to look up and saw the window washers working on this building. The third photo shows the scene below them — there was lots of automobile and pedestrian traffic.

Hmmm… I’m not to sure I’d want their job, especially on this particular building. This is a lot of work! I admire these workers.

Have a great week, everyone! Don’t forget to click on the photos for larger images.


Looking for Lunch Suggestions!

The other day, I asked for breakfast suggestions and you so graciously supplied me with a lot of wonderful ideas.

I’m now looking for lunch suggestions to take to work. Lunches that I don’t have to worry about heating up or putting in the fridge. I’d love to hear from you!
