Good evening from New York.
It has been a while since my last post.
Over nine inches of snow fell upon New York City.
I was very glad to have retired last March and to no longer be responsible for any snow shoveling.
City Sanitation Department trucks with snow plow attachments made a quick job of clearing the streets, as apartment building employees cleared the sidewalks.
Meanwhile, while keeping warm indoors, I began a new knitting project.
Knitting continues to be a relaxing, even calming, activity as I continue to follow the actions taken by the new President and his staff.
This afternoon, I watched a 75 minute long press conference held by the President. It was very alarming to watch the President's behavior.
Back in the 1970s, during the evenings when I watched televised coverage of the Watergate Hearings that occurred prior to the impeachment of Richard Nixon, I began crocheting a complexly patterned bedspread. I almost finished that bedspread, and eventually donated it to a charity thrift shop.
These last two photographs are of parts of a knitted patchwork blanket I made for fun, not as a distraction from worrisome governmental developments in our country.
It's possible that I might now be taking a pause from blog land, because my concentration is now on other matters. I am still posting over at my Instagram page.
I imagine that before long I will be back here with some more city views. Thank you all for your visits and comments.
