While I was out at a conference in Philadelphia our windows were being replaced.
So much better. Next is a fresh coat of paint everywhere! It will be grey with white trim.
The conference was great. But the art museum there was one of the best I’ve ever been in.
All of my favorites: Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, Degas and entire rooms and building walls from the 1100s! An amazing site to see. I was there for 3 hours and still didn’t see it all.
And my favorite, Degas. The STL Art museum also has one.
Spent the morning at the aquarium with some little friends. Then a quick stop at a pizza place for lunch before nap time was calling.
Before and after the pros arrived:
The tree stump unearthed under blackberry bushes:
And my favorite- I didn’t even know there was a wall under all the ivy!
Money well spent by not doing this ourselves (a trunkful of yard waste) and with multiple boxes of Kleenex for my allergies.

Guggenheim museum was amazing, but no photos inside
Coffee in the lobby
Steve Post memorial (google him!)
The memorial was filled with meaningful tributes from his friends and fellow radio professionals and was really a good tribute to him.

Dinner with a friend
We headed to NY last weekend for a memorial service for one of Stephen’s relatives. Day 1 we didn’t waste by stopping by a cousin’s apartment before heading to Broadway for a play and ending with late night pizza and desserts from a corner store. Everything IS available 24 hours a day.
(However, the noise all night long and so many people everywhere is a bit overwhelming to me. Trade offs.)
Massive delicious pastries
