At the Lake, in Central Park

The Lake, in Central Park
Photo by myself near the lake in Central Park, around 72nd Street and Central Park West.

From this vantage point, you can see buildings that are 30 blocks south in Midtown.


Mark and I have been nesting and cooking like mad. We've been experimenting with new recipes, like buttermilk chicken, split pea soup and chocolate chip cookies. I think we've gone through three sticks of butter already.

Christmas Eve, we dined with friends in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. They'd prepared a homemade feast of roast beef and horseradish sauce, roasted potatoes and gravy, egg noodles and candied carrots. We brought Rupert, our cookies, a bottle of wine and our stomachs.

I feel so lucky to have the friends I do in real life and online. Thank you so much for visiting. I hope each of you is having a wonderful holiday season with people you care about!

Your pic is so precious! And so is your blog. I can sense the love that you have for your friends. Your evening sounds like the best - wonderful compamy, delish' food and just gathering together in all tranquility.

It's so fascinating! And it looks really cold. I wonder what you wear everyday, duvet or coat? Uggs or shoes? Are you on fb?

Thanks Susu
I knew you would appreciate such a post. Every time I visit your blog, you have shared another wonderful evening with friends. I agree, such moments make life meaningful.

Hi Miss B
You'll be pleased to know that Rupert was on somewhat good behavior too, since our friends have two cats. lol.

Thanks Mr. Ken. A happy holiday to you as well!

Thanks Louis!

Hi Valeria
On many occasions I wear knee high boots, which keep you quite warm. Often I'll be sweating.

A hat and gloves help, too. The coldest time of year I break out the big down puffy coat!

Your dinner with friends sounds amazing. I am so happy you are enjoying the holidays.
Isn't it fun to cook when you try something new?
Happy New Year.
