he is small.
he is feisty.
he is cuddly.
i had a mini-vacation this past weekend, as i stayed at my cousins' apartment on Central Park West to watch their sweet puppy dog, Henry Hudson. named for the English explorer who also named the river flanking the west-side of the island of Manhattan. not sure if he was the one who named it....but it is named for him.
not important. they live right on the edge of the park, so Hudson and i walked and walked and enjoyed the crisp autumn air, the changing leaves, being outside all day.
we walked around the park for a few hours.
then ventured to the streets, to explore the neighborhood a bit. to think, all of New York is in a 10 mile radius of me, and there are still so many parts of it i haven't seen.
we stumbled upon this gorgeous park, where a giant statue stood in the center. it looks like a fountain, but i don't think it was. behind it you can see the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. i almost felt like i could be in Europe. there are a few amazing churches like this around the city. we couldn't go inside, so just stood and gawked at the facade.
and then we rested. and i knit.
and now here i am. back to my normal life. in queens. watching pride and prejudice the A&E version and working on another custom Etsy order. joy.
