The Thing about Spring

April 29, 2007

It’s always a complete surprise to me. Asparagus! Who thought? Daffodils and volunteer arugula! Raspberry canes budding out in leaves all over the place. Hosta and bleeding heart nubs turning into leaves and plants. So along with it goes raking up about 90 tons of catalpa beans from the lawn, but great god almighty, it is nice to have spring back.

Recommendation to Bostonians: If you can get tickets to the Huntington Theater’s Persephone now on (and not much longer), run to get them. Terrific fantasy about art and the curse of eternal life and one 500-year-old statue and one smart-talking rat.


Fun with Art

April 15, 2007

I had to get some pictures of me taken for work. I hate getting my picture taken but, okay, it’s better than getting punctured with a big ol’ needle. So Husbando and I took to the studio and used some of his artwork for backdrop. Well, something on the picture had to look good.

TU Dinner 2007 — Interesting at Last!

April 3, 2007

 I know this will sound really weird, but this was a great TU fundraiser this year. No, not just because Linda and I played spa-at-home day with a walk around greater downtown Pepperell and a soak in her hot tub and about an hour just leafing through a year’s worth of magazines. No, it was interesting because this year the Owl People — Marcia and Mark Wilson — gave a talk and showed these gorgeous owls. So a digital camera showed all its wait…I’m… taking…a….picture…but….it’ll……a…while flaws (Husbando  cursed and wished for his old Nikon), but still the pictures are pretty impressive.

I’m also trying out Tabblo, Chris, so bear with me.
