Friday Things

Today’s pic is of Cedar Grove, a historic home in Fairmount Park Philadelphia, PA.  This was the last kid free weekend for the bf and I, so we went to Philly for a quick overnight trip.  Mostly to eat.  And we did take time to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  If you haven’t been,…

Today’s pic was taken during my trip to Detroit. The bf and I stayed at the Inn on Ferry Street and I can’t say enough good things about this place.  The inn occupies fours historic homes on this block each with a different theme.  We stayed in the Victorian room.  It’s been another whirlwind week!…

Today’s pic is from the National Gallery of Art East Building at the Smithsonian. I can’t believe I just discovered the towers that display paintings of one of my favorite artists Mark Rothko!  As you can see, Miles wasn’t very impressed.  But he was nice enough to walk with me all around the building. What a…

This pic sums up my week pretty well.  I spent most of my mornings (when I’m up early enough before leaving for the office), working on the blog.  There is nothing better than sitting outside with a nice cup of coffee working on my laptop.  I dream of being able to do this every day….

Today’s pic is from my Mother’s Day lunch at Melt in Leesburg, VA.  Although I live in the city, I happily drive 1hr for their burgers and these glorious fries and onion rings.  I’m getting hungry again just looking at this pic! This week has been a very rainy one.  This kind of weather is…

Today’s pic is a beautiful bouquet of flowers I received from my bf for my birthday.  Aren’t they purdy!!!  I just love that succulents were added. We don’t need to go into detail on how old I am, but I think I’m going to enjoy this one.  Miles gave me a great set of enamelware dishes…

Today’s pic is from the Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum.   Although entrance to the museum is free (thanks Smithsonian!), you still needed to reserve timed passes.  Passes were only available online and sold out within 3 minutes of their release.  It took me two weeks, but we finally made it.  In addition to…

This week’s Friday Things pic is from the Ragnar Kjartansson exhibit at the Hirshhorn last month. During the length of the exhibit, various musicians stood on a rotating pedestal and played a single note for at least an hour at a time. What a week! The publisher’s assistant went on vacation this week, so I…

Friday Things

I snapped this pic during one of my lunchtime walks.  I love old signs. It’s been a surprisingly busy week!  Lots of activity at work and a few fun new responsibilities! It’s been about three weeks now since I’ve started making and adding savory recipes to the blog.  It’s been a lot of fun and I’m learning…

Friday Things

There’s something about riding in a nearly empty Metro car that I find to be very calming.  I think it’s very rare for me since most of my rides are during rush hour where we’re packed like sardines.  I may have to take more lunch time Metro rides more often. Finally starting to gear up for…

Friday Things – Detroit Edition

With a 5am start time and 8hr drive, I’ve finally reunited with Miles in Detroit!!!  It’s been 7 1/2 weeks since I put him on  a plane to his dad’s, but it feels like an eternity.  I was convinced that he would be taller when I saw him again, and he is!  We see eye…
