Travels in Greece

photo friday: santorini buses

Santorini, while small, is too big to get around on foot, so we learned quickly how to use the buses. From what we could tell, all routes ran through the main town, Thira. To get from one city to another, the general route was to take a bus to Thira and then a second bus to the destination. The timetables were a bit confusing – the one I was handed didn’t match that at the […]

happiness project: cooking + misc (apr)

Empower and Energy, Project 43 and the monthly projects in my Happiness Project … so many projects! In reality, they are all facets of the same project, guiding me to finish or give up old projects and move forward on the ones that are most important to me. March’s main theme was House. As I move forward, I consider each month’s theme and determine if there is anything I need to do to update it. […]

Today is National Cheeseball Day. A rainy morning for working. The girls both brought friends home with them from school, so we had a houseful. Chloe went to the movies with friends. Camille and her friends stayed in and watched tv and had pizza. Claire spent the night.

photo friday: union square and beyond

On the finaly day of our Thanksgiving week in NYC, we went shopping, breaking my “Buy Nothing Day” rules. First stop was the holiday market at Union Square, then on to Forbidden Planet and The Strand. We then wandered down to Washington Square Park and SoHo before heading back to Brooklyn and JFK.

Today is National Wear Your Pajamas To Work Day and National Eggs Benedict Day and National High Five Day. Decided that taking Chloe to school early for student government was a good excuse to head right to Arabia. Phelix and I had the very soggy mountain to ourselves…. and the ticks. I found one on both of us when we got home …. Work and work. Then the tweens invaded… but I got them to […]

Today is Tax Day and National Glazed Spiral Ham Day. My final Photo 1 class. I’m going to miss it, but I have too much going on to jump right into Photo 2. I intend to practice some of the skills we discussed in the meantime. Met with a couple of people about how to manage membership in our neighborhood association. Happily, we managed to make some progress! Rob and Camille went out to Book […]

Today is Be Kind to Lawyers Day and National Pecan Day and International Moment of Laughter Day. I got up to take care of the usual morning stuff and work. In the afternoon, I headed to the Red Cross and then Trader Joe’s for more recital food like cheese and hummus. At home, I put away the groceries, then picked Chloe up from flute lessons and took her to the poetry slam at Renfroe where […]

Today is National Peach Cobbler Day. Back to school for the girls. I got up early to take care of my things, walk the dog, get the girls up, and clean. I worked during the morning, then exercised, then started to work through my long list of things to get done, including pulling together plans for our big summer trip and making cabbage soup. When the girls got home, I took Chloe to CVS and […]

Today is National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day and National Licorice Day. I got up early and read. Everyone else got up much later. I went out for groceries. Camille left for Little Five Points with Claire. Rob went to an afternoon/evening event at Georgia Tech. Chloe was tired from the previous day and didn’t do very much all day.

Today is National Pet Day and National Cheese Fondue Day. I tried to sleep in but was unsuccessful. Camille managed to sleep until after noon. I worked on Ireland plans — solved my crazy airline problem via twitter!! I also worked on our photo album from 2001. I’m not sure how much further back I can go! Camille read, did some homework and relaxed. Rob got home from kayaking. Chloe called that her phone had […]

photography homework, week 3.

We’re three weeks done with the four week Photo 1 class. While I’d love to move right onto Photo 2, my schedule just won’t allow it right now. I’ve got work and a big Red Cross training that I need to focus on as we head into summer and our big trip. Our homework after week 1 was to experiment with white balance. Our homework after week 2 was to test out shutter speed. So, […]

It feels great to have and organized, de-cluttered home! Chloe then went to a sleepover in preparation for a day at Six Flags. Rob headed off to the cabin to kayak. Camille and I stayed at home and put our feet up for the […]

photo friday: macy’s thanksgiving day parade

And finally! The reason I decided we should take at least one trip to NYC over Thanksgiving …. the parade!! We got up early, very early. And dressed warmly. And headed to the subway to get to the UWS near Tavern on the Green. Just as we arrived at Central Park West, a gate was moved to block the street. Instant front row seating for us!! It was a long time before the parade would […]

Today is National Cherish an Antique Day and National Chinese Almond Cookie Day. After I was done with work in the morning, Chloe, Phelix and I headed out to Arabia. We took our time on the hike, taking lots of photos. Unfortunately, it got hot while we were on the mountain, and we all got overheated and dehydrated. We stopped at Moe’s to pick up lunch on the way home. We took it easy during […]

Today is National Empanada Day and National Bookmobile Day. After work, I made a list of chores for the girls and then left for my third photography class. When I got home, the girls and I finished up the chores and then headed out to run errands. Our first stop was Jason’s Deli – none of us enjoyed our meal there as much as we used to, unfortunately. Camille’s old Hancock had moved in next […]
