Two weeks ago, Labor day weekend we had planned to go to Governors Island. The plan was drawn out, a picnic purchased, and off we went.
|Nomi & Tomer as prisoners|
|Apparently prisoners salute & wash hands|
|Ha Ha, just an image of a cell. Not real prisoners|
We then rented bikes -
|Jona & a very happy Tomer|
|A very very happy Nomi|
|Me & the always happy Poppy|
|The Governor has great swings!|
Another great sense of achievement was moving into our own apartment and receiving our shipment. In very intense unfamiliar surroundings, familiar stuff goes a long way.
The apartment is partly furnished, but we needed a few bits, including a dining table.
New York is a city in constant motion as are her inhabitants. ie. lots of good quality second hand stuff being sold all the time.
Jona found us a lovely dining table, bought it, and was then faced with the challenge of how to get it home. Jona made a plan, and followed it step by step.
Step 1. Secure a zipcar car
Step 2. Get to the car with Poppy and car seat
Step 4. picking up the table
A sense of achievement is great when you make a plan, and it works so well that you have some spare time for a little cherry on top. (or not, depending on what grabs your fancy)
So now we are a little more settled. We are achieving daily. Each of us in our own space, and together as we process and make sense of this city, of this adventure.
And now sitting here in my New York flat, with a very New Yorkish view out my window, I can't help but feel like Carrie Bradshaw, without the shoe collection...
