The last few days passed way too quickly. There was just so much to do. And as if to make leaving even more difficult, a warm wind from the South brought blue skies and high temperatures.
I won't lie, saying good-bye was hard. "We will be back in ten months," we promised. "Have a great fall and winter. And stay in good health." A last wave to Michel, Claudine, Marinette, René and our other neighbors, and a special farewell to our little friend Evans...
But before getting back to New York, we had one more day in Düsseldorf, Germany.
So, here we are back in New York, ready to get back to work and to life in Carroll Gardens.
Give me just a few days to make my way through the pile of mail that was waiting for me, to restock the fridge and to start weeding my garden, and I will be posting about the neighborhood again.
Hope your summer has been a good one as well.
