Daily Life in the Garden State – Prompt from OM

Thank you, Jason, for the latest prompt. I consider myself mono-coastal—living in northern New Jersey, but working in New York City—spending more time in NYC. Since other bloggers have posted NYC photos already, I thought I’d share some of New Jersey, where my husband Lorin and I (both native New Yorkers) have been living since 2007 with our four cats, Quincy, Karl, Samson and Sylvester.

It’s kind of a slushy mess in NJ right now, so here are some photos from last year and earlier.

This is a photo my husband took of me at Saddle River Park, looking incognito.

This is what Lorin and I call “Jesus in the Glass Elevator” at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church.

Train Depot (L.E. Swenson)

This is the Rochelle Park train depot. Trains run through, but not trains into the city.

This is the duck pond, and also a bus stop into NYC. Geese are not very popular in our town, but we like them.

Heineken can wrapped in Shoprite bag (at our bus stop). I’ve made quite a few friends waiting for the bus, especially in inclement weather.

Karl in the sun

Karl sunning himself – rare photo, he is very timid and hides most of the time.

Samson & Quincy & friends

I am not posting any photos of Lorin because he is camera-shy.

Have a great day, all!
