First, let me say that further research reveals that Boston is commonly known as Beantown. However, one of my readers (hi Mary) directed me to Cloud Gate at Millinium Park (which looks amazing!) http://www.millenniumpark.org/artandarchitecture/crown_fountain
Gosh, doesn't it feel like it should be Thursday already? I feel I've been off kilter since New Year's. All that time off has made me rotten.
Tidbits that are neither here nor there:
Yesterday, I had lunch with a friend I haven't seen in years. It began with a random text Saturday morning telling me it was good to see me over Christmas. She signed it with a shortened version of her name and so I had no idea who it was at first. Once we got that figured out, we set up lunch completely through text over the course of a couple of days. I don't know if that's cool or not. I'm kinda old-fashioned that way. I have to say it was pretty convenient though.
I created the most spectacular blonde hilights yesterday. Took a girl who is naturally blonde but gets blah during winter and perked her right up with 2 different shades of blonde (one a little lighter than the other) woven through her natural color. She looked like her natural self when all was said and done and I did a little happy dance.
After work, although I was running late to go to my knitting group, I ran by the "Grind" for a little vacation in a cup. Ah. In my hurry and concern with getting a no-fat sugar free hazelnut latte, I left wondering if I remembered to say "decaf". I just love surprises. I decided to wait till bedtime and we'd figure it out then. I'm still not sure, because I took a sleeping aid just in case. No problem. Except I'm a little sleepy this morning. Wonder why? :)
Well, now you know my life is not a series of fascinating events. Sorry. Just day to day little bits.
But I am going to CHICAGO!
