Happy New Year! Welcome 2012!

We are home from NYC and Pennsylvania. We took the Amtrak train early in the morning of December 26th. We got a sleeper compartment and 15 hours later we arrived at Penn Station in NYC.

It was great seeing our daughter and her family. She had to work during the mornings of the week after Christmas, so her husband, Michael, their sons and Tom and I walked all over New York for 4 mornings. Joanna joined us for lunch each day and then we all walked to new and exciting places in the afternoons. We walked most of Central Park and most of Riverside Park.

We visited several museums: Natural History Museum, Bible Society Museum and Metropolitan Museum of Art. 
The food was great all week. New York pizza, delis, Fishtag Restaurant and Cafe LaLo’s for dessert. Cafe LaLo is where Tom Hanks met Meg Ryan in “You’ve Got Mail”. The Creme Bulee was de-lish!
The weather in NYC was mild with no snow. Great walking weather. And yes, across the street from their apartment was the Yarn Company. I stash enhanced some worsted weight alpaca from Blue Sky Alpaca. Plan to make a shawl out of the crimson and to use the brown in my Alpaca Iceland Yoke Sweater.

On New Year’s Day, we rented a car and drove through New Jersey to Pennsylvania to visit our son and his family. On Monday, Jan. 3 it started snowing as we were heading out of town. It snowed some in Virginia. Just enough to be pretty but not enough to be treacherous.

We had a great time and it is also great to be home.
