We did what my oncologist suggested, drove to Washington, since I couldn’t fly to Europe to see impressionist paintings. There are something like 19 museums there and they are all free.
Bobo and Frack set off the alarms a couple of times at the National Museum of Art. They both kept getting to close to the paintings/walls. It was fun watching the serious looking guards come running into the rooms we were in. They must have been glad when we left!
I got some more good art books in the book store. Bobo said we were being watched there too!
I got the book I was looking for about Degas and the Kitty Cats. And I got a new one about Mary Cassatt and her puppy. The cost is so much cheaper in the States for books and they have such a selection.
I saw a painting of Monet’s japanese bridge and some of Mary Cassatt’s beautiful pictures at the opera. They were gorgeous! Frick liked Gum Gum (from the Night at the Museum – Easter Island) at the Smithsonian.
My floors are looking GOOD. Just got rid of the horrible white wall-to-wall carpets. Now I want to change the rest of the house (stairs, Kitchen tiles, windows, etc). I just need to win the lottery!
Tomorrows Hope’s birthday and I’m gearing up for the big event.
I’m starting work 1/2 time (afternoons) in September until I’m physically ready to work full time.
