A New York Minute

Saturday, November 17, Joel picked us up right on time at La Guardia. It's so good to see him after so long! Then we rode a bus and the subway, then walked a bunch and got back to his apartment. We basically dropped our stuff and headed back out again. We walked up 9th Avenue to Central Park, then cut across to the Met. I forgot to take my camera with me, so no pictures of Saturday's jaunt. I blame only having had one hour of sleep for my forgetfulness.

Sunday, we headed to the Museum of Natural History, where we saw a cool film in the planetarium about cosmic collisions, and Jamie got to explore to his heart's delight about space. Then we went over to the part of the museum which was featured in "Night at the Museum." He was really excited about our wanderings there, even if the pictures don't show it. I think he's entered that stage where cameras are the enemy.

You know what? I'm going to be lazy and merely show you what we did in NYC, instead of telling you.

More pictures and more details on the NYC portion of the trip, as well as a rundown on our Kentucky visit, later.

A New York State of Mind

Wow! In just a couple of days Jamie and I will be jetting off to NYC! Woo hoo! I can't wait to see my brother. I haven't seen him in a long, long time!

It has been nearly impossible to keep my mind on school and work this week. Just as a I start to research prices on equipment for my boss, or research homework at home, I get sidetracked and wind up surfing for things such as:

I was hoping the tree in Rockefeller Center would be decorated and lit when we got there, but according to the NYC websites I've seen, the tree lighting ceremony isn't until Nov. 28. Bummer! However, The Rink at Rockefeller Center is open, so maybe I can get some good pics of Jamie ice skating. I won't be ice skating, though. Don't think my foot can handle it yet.

The most important thing, though, is seeing Joel and Leah. I can't wait for them to see how much Jamie has grown. My brother, bless his heart, has even been researching online how to play Jamie's Avatar: The Last Airbender trading card game with him. Jamie will be thrilled, because I won't play it with him. I don't understand the rules, and frankly, I don't think Jamie does either. Each time I've attempted to play it with him in the past, what he says the rules are changes. I think once Joel figures out how to play it, he may be the one teaching Jamie how it's really supposed to be played. Can't wait to see you guys!

(And yes, to my Kentucky folks, I'm really looking forward to seeing you guys, too! Love you all great big bunches!)

Thanks, Strangeite!

I found this nifty little doo-dad on Strangeite's blog and hijacked it for myself. I like anything that implies I am, in any way, a genius.

New Recipe

Our poor little collective recipe blog looked so lonely, I just had to put a new recipe up. I added my cheater's recipe for homemade bean soup. You can check it out here.
