flowers in your CSA

Would you consider getting weekly flowers delivered in your CSA? It’s a splurge, but what a cheerful addition it would be! This CSA in Park Slope offers flowers in their deliveries (and bread and eggs, oh, and vegetables, of course).

Ryan and I have been entertaining the idea of getting a CSA, but we don’t cook anymore, as you can tell from my lack of blog posts. We’re hoping the cost of a CSA would force us to cook, but we’re not ready to commit.

I really love how you can buy flowers on almost every street corner in New York. What do you think? Is it worth the cost?

I know I can’t get them. My cats are obsessed with flowers. They would knock over the vase and eat them all up.

Also, here are more flowers from the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and information on our old CSA in Tallahassee.

catching up: lunar new year and sledding

I’ve been in New York for more than a month and thought I’d share some photos of our fun times. lunar new year Ryan and I made our way down to Chinatown for the Lunar New Year parade. There was tons of confetti flying in the air and a lot of ornately decorated floats. Also, it was packed, meaning, there were moments I was afraid I was going to be smushed. So, the whole day was quite the experience. Also, I went sledding for the first time! Ryan and I went to Ft. Greene park after the Nemo snowfall. It was a blast. Here I am looking like a total dweeb. Why do I willingly humiliate myself? Making sure I don’t hit any children… And there I go… Sledding is pretty scary. Ryan and I didn’t even go down the big hills. Adults gain momentum pretty quickly and it was likely we’d end up in the road.

the balloon people

Florida’s weather has warmed up. I had to turn on my air last night. This has left me in a sour mood. Also, is anyone else stressing about Halloween costumes? I’m in a funk and need to feel inspired. Fortunately, I stumbled across these photos the other day. How cheerful.

The Balloon People

I don’t know what I excites me more: the fun of seeing a real, live balloon person [see description], the joy of potentially being the recipient of these balloons, or the courage it takes to be a balloon person.
