Winter Days Inside

The light in ouw apawtment in the late aftewnoon is vewy bootiful..even though it's cold outside, we get weflected sunlight on the walls and on evewything

Pawt of the weason is this new hotel that is wight above whewe my wun is..it stwaddles the High Line..and old disoosed wail line that they'we tuwning into a pawk

the sunsets fwom acwoss the Hudson Wivew bounce off the glass and come into ouw living woom..we've had some pwetty cool skyes too

Mommi is hoping that the building enthoosiasts wun out of money fow a while and stop all this development..the Hotel is OK, but we don't want to lose ouw sky and ouw wivew view..even the highway wif all the lights is bettew than a building wight oppisite us would be

that pwetty sunset time weminds me it's cocktail time, hehehehe...............................................this is the top of Mommi's desd wif a pictoowe of Daddi when he was youngewew(I think he lookds dashing like my Stanley),then a pictoowe of Mommi and Daddi in theiw yoot, and Mommi's old caw wif theiw fiwst wiwe (my angel bwuvvew Nikki) in it
if you biggify the pictoowe you can wead the cawd..it's one of a billion Daddi made up to give to hoomans at Mommi's Birfday pawty..they all had diffewnt quotes fwom the Thin Man Movies

So in the gwand twadition of Nick and Nowa Charles..I'm going to have a mawtini

my BFF Lacie, and hew bwuvvews Scruffy and babyStan sent it to me

I finished all of it..miwacoolously the olive is still intact

I wonder how many of those babies she slammed down befur buying one fur woo?

I mean, I'm sure she felt khompelled to taste test them - probably khyssed the bartender and all the staff!

Oh yes, why do hoomans feel khompelled to keep building?

No wonder lions and tigers and bears feel khompelled to roam the neighbourhoods...I mean, khoyotes, deer, and bears!


Agatha and Archie said...

Oh we know buildings everywhere,cars and more cars,pollution galore...Pl1+2 were just saying it is all too much what we are doing to the earth.. We are coming over for a pawtini..Love A+A

Kelli said...

Hi Asta,
That big building looks beautiful at sunset! Your so lucky that it shines the light into your room! I sure hope you don't lose your sky and river view! That martini looks delicious! It was so nice of your friends to send it to you! I hope you didn't drink too much or you might look like your header picture again!

Lindsay said...

Happy WROO year, Asta!

That mawtini sure looks good! And you have a beWROOtiful view and great reflections. We sure hope that you don't lose them!

Brown dog kisses,

ThePainterPack said...

Good luck to Daisy!
Kisses and hugs

Hi Asta-
Great Martini! Perfect to sip while you look at the skyline. You sure are right.. it is cold.. pretty but cold. Have fun sipping cocktails.


Boo Casanova said...

u look like you are enjoying life very much.

wet wet licks


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Oh look at that Martini toy! We teach the hoomans well on how to entertain us, right Asta?
I have good news, remember in Oct there was a poor Puggy being abandonned in Taiwan, please come back to Dino's blog to witness a true loving story http://ilovedino.blogspot.com/

Gus said...

Oh my. we love the light. Muzzer says this house is very much like a cave, and she is looking for ways to open it up without screwing up the historical facade. whatever, sure makes a nice place to nap.


The Cat Realm said...

Asta - that martini is sooooo fabulous!!! We love it...
And yes - the development is such a problem! 27 houses were planned to be build RIGHT outside our house on the desert hill - but fortunately for now the builder went bankrupt and nothing happens.....
You can read about Notty and Luna at our blog today.
We are 5, yes: five!, now at The Cat Realm, the staff is going nuts....

Hi kousin Asta,

Loved the pictures of your apartment in the sunset. It is very bootiful. Also, that building across the street with all the glass looks pretty cool. I bet you get some great views from that. You must have tons of great photos!

Sunset is always a good time to have a pawtini. I see that you really enjoyed yours!!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Your martini looks amazing if a bit furry Asta!

I like the pictures of your apartment and your Mommi's desk too.

I really hope not too many buildings spoil your wonderful views.

Your views from your home are sooooooooo different from mine - it is interesting to see how all my friends live!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Stanley said...

Astaroni FB O' Mine!

First off, you could NEVER disappoint me. You have the beard you have, and it's bootiful. I dream of tugging on it as we wrassle and play bitey face. (Need I say more on this? If you are not convinced that your are a fabulously gorgeous sweetpea with just the right beard, then I will have to do something else to convince you.)

Your pawtini looks mahhhvelous. Wherever did they get that thing?

We like looking at your mommi's desk. She is obviously displaying momentos and photos of those she loves! Your daddi has always looked very handsome I see, and your mommi is gorgeous (like YOU). Her car is very funky. We like it!

We hope the construction in your neighborhood stops soon, but we do like the reflection off of the hotel.

All my goober love & smooches,
Your Stanley

Moco said...

Hopefully no one has a telescope in that new building that is pointed at your home.
How fun to get to go to a bookstore. I hope you picked up a good thriller.

BrandytheGreat said...

I wish I got a pawtini too!

Noah the Airedale said...

The light in your apartment looks stunning Asta. We hope they dont over develop the area and block your views. That would be awful.


Katherine and Pippa said...

We don't get the sun until the afternoon evening, but we live in a narrow street. The building opposite is pretty though and we can chat to our neighbours through our windows. hehe.


Abby said...

Hi, Asta...

Did you find sun spot to take a nap in?? I hope they don't block your river view...

The mawtini looks great...

Abby xxxooo

Dexter said...

I hope they don't keep building those monster things to wreck your lovely view.

You are very dainty with your mawtini.


P.S. Your Daddi and Mommi used to be young? Gosh, maybe mine did too.

The Musketeers said...

mm~ That mawtini looks nice , how is it ? BOL

Toffee said...

I see that you are still celebrating the New Year with your pawtini! Wow! You New Yorkers know how to celebrate in style!

Simba and Jazzi said...

Your very own martini, life doesn't get much better then that.

Mack said...

I could really use a pawtini right about now. Or a Sam Adams. Your drinky certainly looked deelish.
I just loved the pics of your mommi and daddi in their youth. I don't believe my parents were ever young.


Eduardo said...

Cool martini! I've been voting!

Petra said...

Old pictures are so much fun to look at, and they bring back great memories (so says my mom because I'm not old enough to know stuff like that).

I hope the construction stops soon, too, so that your beautiful views of the city aren't blocked.

Daisy said...

I love the idea of turning an old rail line into a park! And I like the idea of martini hour even more! Especially fuzzy martinis.

Thank you so much for your note about the contest. You are very sweet!

Molly the Airedale said...

What a cute martini stuffie!
Your view is just incredible, Asta! We hope it stays that way and no more buildings go up!

Love ya lots,

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...stoopid blooger finally let me lookie at ur pix...what kinda car did ur mommi drive in her yoot?? It looked fab!!! Daddi and she look so young and carefree...brought tears to my Lakie eyes, though Scruffy just farted so thay may have also contributed....

Thank heavens I'm normal again...well it was fun being mean to the boyz...but I've stopped and am being my usual angelic self.....

Is Khyra askin' in her comment how many pawtinis I may have partaken in before I bought you one?

Hmm...I thought that was what she was sayin'...

Wonder if SH's ever get larngitis???

Well, Sweet Girl...it's snowin' here like crazy...wish we could send ya some...if it snows alot, Mumsie said she has a special idea for us tomorrow...but she won't tell us what it is...sniff....



Life With Dogs said...

Bottoms up cutie - leave me the olive!

Joe Stains said...

We love the old pictures!! That is so cool you got a pawtini from Lacie, I am surprised since it doesn't use her blender ;) We can't imagine how cool it must be living in the city like that!
