Greetings from the Upper East Side

Posted by Anne Yorks on Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Hello! I'm happy to report that I have navigated our family safely to our hotel room on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I'm a crazy driver and I fit in really well here!

We haven't had a chance to do any cookie-ing or cupcaking yet...but I think that is on the plan after today's naptime.

It's been raining cats and dogs here. What a downpour! Odd, because before we left for NYC, it was raining cats and dogs at Flour Box!



This is a cute Dalmatian Cookie I did for a veterinarian consultant.

They also ordered cat cookies too!


 
Just look at that chubby tabby cat cookie. I love the hair puff on her chest! And did you notice her face?



It just makes me want to cuddle up with this kitty cat! I love her!

Recently, I also got an order for brown dog cookies to look like the PBS character Lomax, the Hound of Music.


That's Lomax on the left. And here is the cookie version...



I heard he was a big hit!

Not a whole lot to report from the big city as of yet. We did have a run-in with this...



Do not adjust your computer screen...this is a plaid car, and no it's not a cookie. I really wonder who drives this car. I think we could be good friends.

We have also had some playground time, in between the raindrops. 



This is taxi driving 101, taught by my two-year-old.

Then we enjoyed a PB & J lunch at the window seat!



We were looking for doggies.

We do have a view of the East Side River...



And some crowded apartment buildings that probably cost thousands of dollars to rent each month (and you can see the reflection of my camera in the window - I circled it!)



That's all for now. We have a pretty busy schedule the next few days, so I won't be able to update until Thursday. Until then...

Have a sweet day,
Anne

PS - I have received several emails from customers! Yes! I can do your projects. I just can't send email right now. I think it's because my computer is using the internet on a public line. I will be in touch with you as soon as I figure our this email snafu. Public internet settings always make my computer act a little wonky. Sorry!

    I have to say that in the three months I’ve had my new laoptp (an Acer), I haven’t really had any problems with Vista except in getting it networked with my XP desktop. My desktop is just one cobbled together. It’s got an HP CD burner in it (bastardised from my old HP computer), an LG DVD burner (used to be in an external enclosure). I needed to get a new hard drive as the old one finally did itself in. Maxtor hard drives and I don’t seem to get along. At the moment it’s got a Western Digital one in there.I’ve got an external ComCast 250GB hard drive that’s mostly full of downloaded shows (incl. Blood Ties & Battlestar Galactica (the latter because I had to do something to watch season 3 until the dvds came out MONTHS later – they arrived yesterday. I do love my new Acer laoptp. Lots more memory and speed than my previous Toshiba laoptp. A whole ‘nuther long debacle, best saved for another time.On another note, I was looking over our booklist that our resident librarian has done up for our club’s online newsletter’s section, and noticed you’ve got three books coming out within relative closeness (Blood Bank & Valor’s Trial [HC], along with the paperback release of Heart of Valor a couple months later).Edited at 2008-03-27 04:57 am (UTC)

    norwegicus, This episode is aacutlly called Seaside Fun I had a hard time finding it under this name. Perhaps, if you wanted, you could change that for future viewers. Thanks so much for putting them up! I LOVE this show.
