>I took these pictures


Last time Em and I were in the city. Spring flowers! And it was a pretty nice day too, not like recent weather. Actually these were taken in our yard. I told Stitch you know it is spring when the Crocuses stick their little purple heads up (I know they look kind of blue, but they are really purple). They are all flattened on the ground now because of all the rain, and have been overpowered by the daffodils.

I have no idea the name of these pinkish purple flowers, but they were blooming in Central Park so I snapped their picture. We were walking down a road through the park, I don’t remember where we were going at the time, we were either coming from or going to the Cold Water Creek store. I got a nice dress there on a really good sale. I kept stopping to take pictures so Em got way ahead of me. Of course she stopped and waited for me.

We stopped at Maxie’s Grill for lunch, Em said she thinks in the future we will just go there for drinks and dessert. We were hoping to see some of the game, instead they had on girl’s softball.

And these,

are Forsythia, not Forsynthia like some people say, there is no ‘n’, they are also a flower (or bush) that when I see it think of spring.

I don’t know what this last flower is but I know you see a lot of them during springtime,


>You know how it is, when you just get that bug to redecorate. Since I live in a basement, my decorating opportunities are limited, so I rearrange things here.

My book blog has three columns, and I just never thought this one would. One reason was the background is not conducive to text, very pretty but sometimes you can’t read the words. Then I learned how to put a solid background behind the text. Cool. From that, the decision to put 3 columns was easy. I was tired of how far to scroll and things just kept piling up on the side, so now it is a little more even.

What do you think? Don’t be shy, comment away!

>Today is already looking like a day I would like to rewind and start over. Yes I want a do-over. Up early to catch the train, took out my ear phones to make sure we weren’t changing trains in Croton like yesterday (always a high light of my day when that happens[big eye roll here]). We didn’t so I was thinking today should be o.k., just a little rain, yes a LITTLE rain, also cold nasty wind, my jeans are still wet.

Fortunately it was Abi who opened the door to the office, not someone with that hated question, ‘Don’t you have an umbrella?’ Well of course I have an umbrella, its home in my closet where it won’t get broken or wet (another big eye roll), I don’t want it to end up on a blog somewhere, or on one of those posters

‘Missing … have you seen …. ‘

I also only wore one jacket. I need two jackets, a light one for the office and a heavier one to wear over it when I go outside. Especially on a day like today I need two jackets. I only have my heavy jacket, which is wet now so I can’t wear it and I am freezing in my office!

I tried to turn my scale on to measure my cereal and Ta Da! batteries are dead. Fortunately it takes AAA batteries, except I don’t think I have any. Anyway, it is day two of my new vitamin regimen and I still don’t feel any better. In fact right now I wish I was home still wrapped up in my blankets.
