Snow!

It snowed today in Hoboken!  Completely caught me off guard, but I was excited because I got to test out my new toy… macro photography extension tubes.

Got this shot of a snowflake! I have others to post, but this is all I uploaded for now…

Super excited over it, I tried taking some pictures during the last snow, but it was really icy, and all the pictures were just white clumps.  We had a few hours of AMAZING large white fluffy snowflakes.  It was important that they floated nicely down, because when they go fast they get all twisted and messed up. Who knew snowflakes were so complicated?!

Last Saturday in Newport Beach.  It has been one busy week, and I slacked a bit on the blog.  I’ll try to be better… try 🙂

We had car #1 picked up by the shippers.  This car had to be shipped… no way we were going to attempt our 16 day adventure cross country with a baby and dog in a two door with no middle back seat.  That would have been asking for craziness.  Bye Bye car, hope to see you in New Jersey!

The apartment is getting filled up with boxes.  We are still trying to sell some of our furniture, hopefully we do sell it and its sooner than later because we really need the floor space for boxes.  

I’ve been procrastinating packing the outdoor stuff.  We sold our patio set so at least we won’t have to pack that up.  One thing I must take are my garden frogs.  I’m going to make room for these guys on our Hoboken Balcony. Hopefully next to some tomato and basil plants.  Gotta have fresh tomato and basil for the yummy mutz.  Flowers will be figured out later on.  We have our priorities. 😉

Doesn’t seem like we are going to make it to the Huntington Library Gardens… boo. 😦

We totally slacked on packing so there is no way.  Maybe next trip out here.  We are now going to be one of those who have vacation in Newport Beach, no more being locals.  But at least now we will be Hoboken and NYC locals 🙂

I’ve been getting excited about taking the path into the city with Gobo.  I am really missing the meatpacking district and chelsea market.  I’m also getting tired of driving and can’t wait to go back to walking everywhere.  Good think I’m getting tired of driving before we start a 16 day road trip. I’m guessing I’ll be whining on here about being in a car by… oh… 2 hours into the drive. Ha!
