Whew, what a whirlwind!

Monday, November 10th, 2008

I have just finished several weeks in a row of just plain running from one deadline to the next. It’s all good, I love my life and my work, but I just plain need a day off.


It looks like I wake up early on Friday, (I’m volunteering with kids) and when I’m done with them at 10 I will actually have the rest of the day to do with as I please. Too bad it’s November (this morning we have snow on the ground for the first time), I would love a day in the hammock on the porch.

Until then, I have happily-filled days of work and relationship. Yesterday was all relationship… I was the honored guest of a party given by my mother, in honor of my upcoming 50th birthday. Speaking of whirlwind, there were so many people in so many rooms of her house that I did not get to chat with as many folks as I would have liked. It was delightful!

The only photos I got at the party were of myself, Mom and my brother Eric together (Cynthia pressed the camera button for us). I’ll put up one of those when I have time to download from the camera.

Meanwhile, the teapot is whistling and I have kids to spend some time with this morning, so I’m off and running!

The photo here, Brian took of me at the Teahouse in DC a few weekends back.

A Fire Escape for Paz

Monday, November 10th, 2008

My internet friend Paz, of The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz, likes fire escape photos. She lives in New York City but has not always lived there. She takes great photos of her adopted city in another of her blogs, Paz’s New York Minute.

I took this photo of a fire escape in Washington DC a few weekends ago (this is the first mention of that trip on my blog, there will be more photos, I promise). I seem to never be caught up on my photos here. I guess maybe I should stop taking my camera with me wherever I go?
