Back to Short

Wow, I can't believe I haven't blogged since our trip to Costa Rica.  Not much has happened since then and January tends to be a quiet month for most everyone. Then before you know it, February came full force and although a short month it felt like it lasted forever.  We did celebrate my birthday and our anniversary in another country, so that was new and exciting. No other travel plans until March in which I plan to be in Boston, then NYC in April and May, so expect more from me later on.

February was spent working and getting back in shape since the weather has been quite cold here in the East Coast. The only new thing that has happened is me going back short hair. The bob was nice for a while but I just couldn't deal with the straightening and styling and overuse of my aging hair. and Voila: the new do.   Until next time....

Goodbye 2013

2013 has been a good year but boy did it go fast.   Not much in terms of outfits but there were some good times.

Some memorable times of the year are:
  1. A new job which began in January.
  2. My sweetie got the job he wanted.
  3. A trip to Taos, NM for a good friend's wedding.
  4. My In laws 50th anniversary.
  5. Our trip (current there now) to Costa Rica.  See below.
 More photos to come.

Last (Recall) Day of Grand Jury

Wow. What a crazy and fascinating 8 weeks of grand jury. I learned a lot of my city including the diverse group of people that was there with me.  Our last day was wonderful as we got early, had lunch/dinner/happy hour then off for pie at the new Dangerously Delicious pie place that just opened up in Chinatown. It was a good end and we vowed to stay in touch (another happy hour is set up in 2 weeks).




Part of the grand jury group that went out afterwards.

A Day at Philly

Hi all. I can't believe I haven't posted in ages, maybe due to the fact that I was in Grand Jury service for the past 8-10 weeks, then work, then no work due to the government shutdown,  well it's quite understandable that I haven't been inspired to post.  But, I did have a day out in Philly with a good friend and it was just the boost I needed.

We headed to the Philadelphia Museum of Art with no idea that the the Leger Exhibit was there and I ecstatic since I love the cubist post modernist art...era...whatever (an exhibit I highly recommend).

Oh, and the museum security is so friendly (unlike the DC guards), they even asked me to if I wanted a photo. Um, yeah!!!

What's Wrong With this Picture?

 
Okay, this is just getting too ridiculous at Day 16 of government shutdown.

A New Me!!

As usual I say I will post and then I don't.  My main reason: I have been summoned for grand jury duty for the last 6 weeks with another 2 weeks to go.   It's been quite an experience and I will be glad when it is all over.  Meanwhile, I've been thinking about major changes to how I look and one was to get a new do. I'm digging the sleek look...for now.
