This Week

This week. Oh, this week. Good week? Yes. Fast week? Holy moly. One of those weeks where half my wardrobe is piled on my chair and I still have not unpacked my suitcase? Definitely.

I wrote a post on the train ride from Connecticut to New York City on Monday night. It's in my moleskin in my bag across the room. And the post is filled with words. Hopefully meaningful strings of words, as I'm sure that was my objective Monday night. But it's not Monday night anymore and I'm just not in the mood for those strings of words tonight. (And let's face it, I'm comfy in my bed across the room.) So, instead I am going to post a few photos of the past week. I'll post the train ride writings in the next few days when it's not 11 PM on a Thursday night. Good deal? I thought it might be...

So here's what my past week looked like:
(They're all taken with my iphone because I haven't had the time/energy to upload my camera photos.)

The Brooklyn Flea Market. 

Someone needs a haircut... 
But not until she gets in her morning cuddle.

 Small-town Connecticut does mean street fairs with ice carving contests. 
Think Stars Hollow from Gilmore Girls and you get the idea...

February means coat weather for everyone.

This photo cracks me up. She's actually fine with wearing the coat (and had been wearing it for a while at this point) but doesn't get the concept that rolling around just isn't going to be the same.

 Holy sunset, Batman.

This is the view from my brother's couch, which is the place where I sleep like a log every. single. time. I spend the night. 
(Which makes me realize how many nights I've slept on that couch over the years...) 

Another favorite view. 

I ate so many of these that I threw the only half empty bag(s) out yesterday afternoon before I turned into a valentine candy heart. I saved this one as a reminder though...
(Also, work notes blurred in iPhoto. No actual water was spilled in taking this photo...)

The sky was still light when I walked home tonight. Spring is on its way!

This past week was filled with all of this and so. much. more. But I'm tired and going to leave it at that.
Hope you all had a great week, too!


  1. i'm dyyyyying of jealousy at the moment. i want to take the train somewhere fun. only we don't have a train. sigh. 
    :) glad you had such a lovely trip though. 

  2. I love the photos, and I can't wait to see the one's from your camera!
    And that ice carving photo? Before I even read what you wrote below it, I thought STARS HOLLOW! Exactly what that says about me, I'm not sure yet...

  3. I love taking trains too! This one is one I take often but it's still always exciting to walk through the train station and hop aboard. On Saturday, the lights were out in our train car for most of the trip, so that was a new adventure. But yes, yay for trains!

  4. I spent the day a few weekends ago watching episode after episode of Gilmore Girls - love them! It's funny because the show used to remind me of small-town CT and now small-town CT reminds me of Gilmore Girls. 

  5. Brookly flea market?? Oh my goodness, I want to go there. 


  6. It was so much fun but I definitely needed more time and more money in my wallet. So worth checking out though!
