quiet time

Things are settling back down here. I was pretty much crashed last weekend. We visited my sister Sunday and I showed her how to make the Aunt Philly Toothbrush Mat and I made this little bowl, sitting on her back porch overlooking the river. It was hot.

It's been way too hot most of this week and then today is lovely. Absolutely gorgeous.

At work I'm in the midst of conference planing and fiscal year end. It's keeping me hopping. I did manage to get out to lunch today with a good friend. We went to the Medici on 57th here in Hyde Park. I've been eating there since the 70s--my hubby and I spent a lot of time there. I don't go much lately--the food is good but the service is not lunch-time friendly. And I mostly bring my lunch.

All the staff were wearing t-shirts with "where Obama eats" on the back. We heard he was planning a visit over the weekend. Already streets are being cleaned and blocked for security for the family's home coming. I'm glad I don't need to go up that way (their home is about a mile north of here).

Lovely soothing colours.

I'm very glad to live somewhere quiet and provincial and not to have security precede me everywhere I go! said...

What beautiful flower photos. I love peonies and adore their fragrance. Right now have a huge bunch of white ones on my table. Sounds like you had a nice lunch.
