We’ve been to Manhattan several times already but it still has that charm and appeal every time we visit. This time, my mom-in-law is with us so it was nice visiting Times Square with her as she was not able to visit Manhattan thoroughly the first time she visited New York City around 7 years ago.
Walking around in the cold NY spring weather is really a challenge. I keep taking tab of my mom-in-law who is still strong and mighty for a 74-year old woman. She can keep up the pace like any young adults but we need to take into consideration that it is really difficult to walk around the cold, biting and even freezing weather.
Tomorrow, I hope the weather will be accommodating as we plan to visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. We are looking forward to see the beautiful plants and blooms of spring.
Winter has officially ended here last week. We are using the air conditioner unit again. Although the weather is bearable, it gets a bit hot midday and towards the afternoon. Anyway, spring is here and I am gearing myself to some worthy activities to do in the park while the weather is still accommodating.
The nearby park offers free yoga sessions in the evening. All I need to bring is my yoga mat because they don’t provide yoga blankets there. That is okay since the session is free so I can’t ask for more.
I tried to observe the yoga session last year. The session was intermediate but I was not sure then if I could bend like they do. Now I am more confident. Weight-wise, I still have not lost a significant amount but my tolerance level has improved immensely as I still do my regular walk at the park.
I want to welcome Spring with a positive note. I kind of slacked few weeks ago during winter because my mom and mom-in-law were here for a visit. They kept cooking nice stuff so how could you resist that? It would be a shame to miss their home-cooked meals. They are back home so I am back to my regular routine and this time, I’ll kick it up a notch!
