Tuesday Brewery

Last week, to check off an item on Kristen’s epic ‘Goodbye NYC’ bucket list, she and I went on a tour of Brooklyn Brewery. And it was awesome.

It was fun to see the facilities and it was fun to meet and hang out with the other tour-mates (there were 6 of us on the newly-instated Tuesday tour, which surely beats the hundreds they get on weekends).

And it was especially fun to have the beer tasting, where I was surprised to find that I can like hoppy beer and will now be on the hunt for Brooklyn Brewery’s reserve beers wherever I go. I haven’t gone so far as to think about brewing my own beer though. At least not yet.

Daphne and the backyard

In a very necessary and awesome turn of events, two of my favorite people visited NYC last week. One of them was the incomparable, life-affirming, wonderful Daphne, seen below, smiling, as usual.

I will always be grateful for the companionship, support and great times with good friends, much of which I’ve had this week. And for sparkling lights in backyards.

On a chilly, windy Sunday afternoon

Lirra is here, so life is even better : )

Through my window in March

it has become more difficult to distinguish between the beginnings and the ends



sometimes it’s easy to forget that eventually,

everything falls

Another snow falls in Brooklyn

The general consensus in New York is that people are sick of the snow. Freezing rain, slushy ponds at the corners of sidewalks, snow piled up everywhere, blah blah blah. I love it. If we have to endure frigid temperatures and gray skies, I appreciate an aesthetic highlight.
