I Love NY

You probably are thinking that this blog is about New York or New York City. That would be the assumption I would make from a title like this.

One day recently I found this phrase on my 10 year old granddaughter's top and commented about it, asking her how she could love New York if she had never been there.  (She's been many places including internationally but never been to New York.)

At which time. . .


she informed me that 'NY' didn't have to mean New York.  "Nana, NY could be anything that starts with NY!!




And . .

she continued by informing me about other things it could mean. 









We were making cookies and were at the standing-around-waiting-for-them-to-bake point, when this conversation started.  Anna is a list maker so after batting a few NY phrases around, she washed her hands, got out pencil and paper and started writing them all down.



The list is now on my 'this n' that' board.

And there you have it!  Next time you think someone loves New York, they may secretly be checking out your yard or just love that big bright round yellow thing that sometimes appears in the daytime sky!!

I added this item just for me. It's tagged 'New York City' and I think it is one of the the prettiest photos I have ever seen!

  3. Wow, 10 years old! :)

    I believe my fave from the list would have to be "Night Yawns"... it just has a kind of "feel" to it. Ask her if I may write a poem and title it that, please?
