Ready to Fly Away

Image
The last few days leading up to today.. and the coming few days were/are going to be busy. Last week had two snow days and when Friday came around I was more than happy to finally have a quite and empty house. On Saturday M and I both went to get a long overdue mani pedi.. my feet are mostly sock covered but at night before bed when I take off my socks and find my freshly painted bright summer colored toes staring back it me I feel joy. We have also been packing and trying to finish off all the food in the refrigerator.. I hate packing. I'm a pretty good packer.. we try to travel as light as we possibly can but I still absolutely hate it. I need to get a hair cut before we go on the boys need one two.. my brain is swarming with last minute thoughts.. making sure I don't forget anything..  I'll be missing for the next couple of weeks.. we'll see you all when we return.. with hopefully tons of pictures and stories.. :)                           E

        Sundial - Taken in a stunning sculpture park in Lincoln, Massachusetts. It was originally a large spherical sculpture, not a sundial but it reminded me of one. I particularly love the play of light and the shadows the pieces of the sculpture makes You can buy this print  here .

Springing Forward

Image
All this springing forward made me mess up last nights dinner time.. I realized at 7pm I was supposed to put dinner in the oven at 6pm and all the while I was thinking it was 5pm.. we ended up ordering pizza instead.. sigh We had game night at our place Saturday night.. we hadn't done it is quite a while and it was so much fun.. we played Sequence, Pictionary and Jenga..  we ordered take out and ended the night with strawberry shortcake... Wegmans make an amazing strawberry shortcake and my friends are all hooked.. I actually get scolded when I make dessert instead.. now I know better and go straight to Wegmans when they are coming over. They ended up staying past one.. which I guess really meant 2am? I am going over the details of our upcoming spring break vacation.. making lists. We are all so excited.. I spent yesterday cleaning.. we have one of those water vacuums.. a Hoover Spin Scrub.. I washed the living room carpet.. took the covers off the sofa and washed t

        Stars - A photograph taken in Iran, inside one of the mosques was a wall with a star inspired design carved into the brown clay wall. The design so intricate, so masterfully carved.

Broadway

Image
Last months visit to the theater got us thinking about all the shows we have had the pleasure of seeing.. when we got to counting we were surprised by how many we had seen.. 1. Wicked - This was the first show I had ever seen. M had seen a musical in London once and was partial to the whole experience. But when we received a belated wedding present $$ from M's uncle we didn't want to just spend the money on groceries.. we wanted to make sure we used it for something memorable.. so we splurged on some Wicked tickets.. It was the perfect introduction to Broadway. It was a spectacle for sure and even M who had never seen Wizard of Oz had no trouble being swept up in the magic.  2. Avenue Q - We were so sure about this off Broadway show.. the characters are muppets.. while for some that may be the selling point for us that was what was making us the most unsure.. But I didn't want to watch Chicago or Phantom of the Opera and I may be wrong but I felt they couldn&

Starry Blue - The gorgeous deep blue ceiling of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa, Canada. It had a gold star like embellishment that reminded me of my son's favorite lullaby, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. You can buy this print here .
