Apr 30 - A gift

Last week, my cousins from India visited us.  She got me a beautiful saree with a matching clutch purse!  I love the blouse and the purse.  She gave it to me in a beige color printed fabric bag, which is in the top right corner of the picture and this is the purse.

Apr 29 - Train ride from New Jersey

Yesterday, that is on the 29th, I went to Jersey Gardens outlet stores with couple of my friends.  We took the train to Newark and a taxi from there to the outlet stores.  I have never been to these outlets and wanted to check out and hence tagged along with them.  It was a disappointing trip!  I did not find anything interesting there and it was a waste of money, time and energy.  I was so exhaust that went to bed at 9 pm itself!  I took this picture on my way back to the city, from the moving train.  This was between Secaucus and NYC.

Apr 27 - Hollister

Today I took my nephew shopping and one of the stores I took him to was Hollister. I never been to Hollister before, at least I don't remember shopping there before and certainly first time in NYC.   Whenever I visit Abercrombie & Fitch, it reminds me of my age. I don;t like the loud music and half dimmed lighting in the store and Hollister was no different. The only difference I noticed was the price, Hollister isn't as ridiculously expensive as Abercrombie & Fitch.

Apr 25 - Clean Linen

My cousins left Saturday night and it rained all day on Sunday. Since it rained all day, didnot step out of the house.  All I did was some laundry. Fresh and clean linen in my dryer.

Apr 23 - Speedometer

I almost forgot to click a picture for the day.  We were busy shopping and almost forgot about the photo for the day.  After shopping, we took a train down to New Jersey to visit another cousin.  Her husband picked us up from the train station.  It was past 9:30 in the night.  As we were driving, I saw the reflection of the  speedometer on the driver side car door window.  That reminded me of this picture and that was when I realized that I had not taken a single picture that day and here it is.

Last Thursday when we were on Empire State Building, we were fortunate to watch an army ceremony that took place on the observation deck of Empire State Building. Some of the officers were promoted during this ceremony.

Stack of food containers.  This is some of the food I cooked today.  My cousins are visiting us from India and thought of stocking up the fridge with some food.  A back up plan in case someone wants homemade food after a long day!

Apr 14 - Fresh Almonds???

Have you ever seen and eaten fresh almonds before? I found them at a produce store in Chelsea Market this afternoon! I have never seen fresh almonds before and was very amused to find them. In the excitement of taking the picture, it didn't even occur to me that I ought to buy some to taste it.. I wonder how they taste!

Apr 13th - Cloudy day!

A cloudy afternoon and a boring day!  I did not do anything interesting today.  I had some spring cleaning and shopping on today's agenda.  However,  I did nothing and the gloomy weather wasn't helpful either!  Took this picture from my window.

Apr 12th - Bike Ride in the park

It is a beautiful spring day out here, highs around 65 F.  After lunch, went to the park for a bike ride.
The three  musketeers in the park!

The park is still beautiful with the cherry blossoms but the trees that were in full bloom last week were no longer in blooms today!

One more beauty!

Last Thursday, I met a few of my friends for lunch, in downtown. One of my friends works in One Liberty Plaza and as I was waiting for her to come down, these beautiful tulips caught my eye. I captured them thru my camera!!

Absolutely fell in love with these pink tulips!

For more spring blossoms in the city, checkout my last post!
