Friday night the Metropolitan Museum of Art is open until nine.
We saw the tree lighting and walked through some of the major exhibits to check out others.
(the Christmas tee is another post, stay tuned) The Holiday Sugar Sculpture of the Museum was fun to see.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art at Night
the line up of hot dog vendor carts was colorful in the dark
Because it was raining, I just got the fountains looking like this. Didn’t want to stand in the rain.
Information in the center of the lobby. You could smell the magnolias.
View from an upper window.
The museum in sugar outside of the cafeteria.
Credits to the pastry chef Randy Eastman and his assistants.
I try to keep up with my sister as we head for the subway. It was still raining. The magic of wet pavement.
When I woke up in Mary’s apartment this morning, after an 11 hour sleep, this was the welcoming sight. She was heating milk and making coffee. Last night we took 3 subways to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and saw the tree lighting with the Neopolitan Baroque Creche (stay tuned) Today it’s art and photography excursions but getting fortified first. A bit grainy on the iPhone shots. From a previous post about my sister’s Greenwich Village kitchen.
Do you ever look at another customers items on the conveyor belt in the grocery store?
Do you make judgements based on their choices?
Today I was watching the weather and accumulated snowfall all day and thinking about my Thanksgiving travel plans.
When I drove out of the school parking lot, it was slush on the roads and a pretty snowy wonderland in the trees.
After school, I went to the Giant Eagle supermarket and procured some semi-Thanksgiving items for supper tonight.
You can’t see the pretty red yams.
I can tell you this, the cranberry, orange, Granny Smith relish was refreshing. We didn’t sample the pie.
It’s just sitting.
If I never eat another Turkey Burger that’ll be just fine.
Don’t look too closely foodies and food bloggers.
Holidays are usually low view days on the blog. Good thing!
Steve and I ate together and he’ll hold the fort here. I packed a suitcase with plenty of wool sweaters and socks.
Thinking about all those I love and who love me. Feeling grateful for friends and family.
When I took the car to be inspected on Monday night (due Nov 30th so made it just under the wire)
I saw this sky as I waited in the wind for Steve to pick me up.
Today at 8 AM, Dan and his SIL Todd, came to install my new furnace. Their day ended about 12 hours later. Well done!
It is great to have efficient heat and not worry about carbon monoxide emissions from the old furnace. Come summer there will be AC, too. And it was great you knew I needed more amps of electricity first and a new box so all is safe.
This old house hasn’t been this toasty since I moved in here in ’91.
Thanks Dan, for letting me photograph you in my old school basement.
And thanks Mar and Erika for recommending Uncle Dan. He did a super job, just as you said he would.
Here are the Adventures of Matthew highlights.
No thought of acid-free paper or archival pigment ink when I created this.
I covered two pieces of cardboard with fabric, ironed some of that paper that was coated and would bond when it got really hot and zig-zag stitched the pages on the sewing machine.
The end papers were marbled on this one.
I entered this photo to try to win something from Cheerios but I forget what it was.
Photographed tonight in Target. You were on my mind.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATTHEW-
Miss you! Love you xxooxx
Always trying to catch the action shot. The feel of motion. But then it ends up stiff.
Here is Maura starting the backstroke heat.
Maura, forever frozen, in this tiny second, as she pushes off the wall.
Marlene helped me out with these diving trophy photos of the kids. Thanks Mar. We’re all here in Ohio ready to celebrate Maura’s sixth birthday.
Jack is below with a photo holding a game ball as he missed out on the diving awards.
Jack revceived the game ball.
