Good Morning Moon

6 a.m., headed west to the coffee shop, and then on to the brand new gym in my office building. It was so warm this morning!
I never tire of the moon.

Christmas Retrospective

YD BF, originally uploaded by Yankee T.
Younger Daughter spent some time with us at Christmas. It was not without its challenges, but on Christmas Eve her boyfriend came over and we had a lovely time. These two photos are from that night. I love the one of him putting the Santa hat on her. He has been a steadying force over the last couple of years, and I so appreciate him for that.

Say Ornamental Metal Three Times Fast!

On an early December day, not too cold, The Attorney and I slipped off for some much needed alone time. The first stop on our tour was the National Ornamental Metal Museum, one of the many jewels in this city's crown of exhibits. This photo and the one below are of castings on a metal gate.
I love this museum, and the memory of this day that ended with a fireside massage.

...The next day, we took OD back to the airport to return to Paris. YD wore her new scarf. Here they are, saying goodbye. Look how tall YD is!

2 big girls with scarves

2 big girls with scarves, originally uploaded by Yankee T.

This photo has issues. First off, Older Daughter's scarf and shirt are purple in real life. Secondly, the light on Gigi's face is horrific.
However, the scarves are hand made by The Attorney's Sister, Same Name As My Sister. And the girls look so happy. This photo was taken in early January. I'm catching up...what can I say?
They'll be 21 in May and June. Aren't they lovely?

Four Seasons

I know I just posted this, but here it is again, as the beginning of the four seasons. This street is so breathtakingly beautiful, always, as you can see.
If you came to sit on my porch, I'd drive you over there-it's just minutes from my house.
