plodding.


so many lights, so few ornaments

subway mural

all aglow

i got me some antlers!

santas take to the streets

big red balls

little tree of wonder

christmas village

i couldn't get out of bed yesterday morning. the king of can't-get-out-of-bed where you feel like if you do you'll end up losing yesterday's lunch or find yourself collapsed on the bathroom floor. 

so i didn't. get out of bed. not really.

in fact the only things i accomplished yesterday was the chipping away at the bags under my eyes (as seen in the antler picture {sigh}), stringing the bottom half of my tree, scaring the ups delivery man (that's another story) and brushing my teeth. i was a sorry sight. it was a sorry day. 

but today: i'm up. the laundry is in the dryer. and i've already managed to shower. 

progress. 

and as i go about my day, getting all the many things done despite my desire to hide under the covers, i will allow the christmas decorations to spur me on--to keep me plodding about the manhattan streets. 

perhaps i'll count how many christmas trees i come across today...

We all have those days lady... And you still look lovely, bags under your eyes or not!

P.S. I saw your comment about my photos... you are too sweet! I have a Canon Rebel DSLR that I just love. It makes all my photos so crisp and clear!

Miss E said...

I had a day like that yesterday too. Never very good. But much like you, today I am up and getting on with things!

Deepali said...

Please keep plodding along, despite the cold and your discomfort at times. I've been there.
Love the pictures, I used to work at 52nd and 6th and would pass those gi-normous ornament balls everyday. Love them.
Good luck! You look lovely. :-)

Micaela said...

i love those days (even when i look a sorry sight) because sometimes i just want to have a sleep.

your tree is gorgeous! as you are... you look like you stepped out of a j.crew holiday special-- love the soft ruffles with a bold print and OF COURSE the antlers ;)

beautiful!

i haven't quite mastered the tucked in look but you make me want to.

xoxo

i sometimes feel like getting out of bed is progress on any day, not even when i'm sick. not because i hate my life or anything. i just like sleeping, okay?

M said...

i love your NYC holiday time photos! beautiful beautiful!

Mackenzie said...

under eye bags?! girl, please. you look gorgeous in that picture and so festive! and i've definitely had those days, where brushing your teeth and washing your face should be tasks that allow you to get a gold star for completion. and a pat on the back!

that mosaic in the subway station makes my heart so happy. so gorgeous!
