Some favorites…

There were too many things I wanted to write about so, I’m just going to try to include them all.  Right here, right now–before I get distracted with dry cleaning my clothes myself or something half as fun.  So, here are some of my recent favorites:

1.) Macy’s Flower show.  It was like we went to springtime in Europe.  Here are a few pictures for you to take in the magic.

We saw the Eiffel Tower, amazing.

We saw lots of beautiful flowers, just like we would in Europe.

It was all so delightful!

...just another day in Europe...

2.)  The Civil Wars. (a band –not the actual war).  My co-worker heard me listening to them and thought we were in a therapist’s office–which is even more ironic because we are doing a lot of Civil War (like the real war) research in the office.)  They are all over the place. http://www.thecivilwars.com/

3.) The idea of an office plant becoming a reality.  Ever since the a certain major event that happened in the office in 2008, plants just haven’t been staying alive.  I think we’ve stopped caring (or stopped watering).  I’m going to change that–especially since the desk I moved to gets hours of natural sunlight every morning, I thought I should take advantage of that.  I got a few plant suggestions via the facebook.  Feel free to add to the list.

  • cactus
  • rosemary
  • jade plant
  • peace lily

4.) Finally some ridiculousness.  I’ve been informed that the Cobra from the Bronx Zoo is still on the loose (where did it go it is NYC?).  It has now set up twitter: @BronxZooCobra (http://twitter.com/BronxZoosCobra#).  Here are some great tweets- “A lot of people are asking how I can tweet with no access to a computer or fingers. Ever heard of an iPhone? Duh.” or this one- “Holding very still in the snake exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. This is gonna be hilarious!” The best one has to be: “Anyone know if Rebecca Black lives in NYC? No reason.” (Thank you Chris for finding that twitter feed.)  Amazing.

  1. Oh, I wish I had known you were going to the flower show. I would have gone with you.

    As for the office plant, you have one sitting here in my dining room that likes sunshine and would fill a lot of space. Never mind that it would require a few strong men and a spacious truck to move it.

    There’s a Civil War event in Faribault on April 9 where a woman will be dressed in period clothing. The Rice County Civil War battle flag, slave bills, Lincoln memorabilia, soldier’s equipment, etc., will be on display. An author will also be signing a book he wrote about the Civil War. And, just for you, there will be Civil War era music.
