Getting home from our trip was rough: illness, school, extra work hours, etc. They all added up to something having to give and the photos are what had to give. However, now the sun is shining, there is not a fever to be found in the house, and I do not go back to work again until Friday so I am catching up on what I do have and sad for the days I missed. It is what it is, though, and I am good with that.
A display from the North American bird room in the Museum of Natural History. This place is massive! When we first got there, I thought it would be very crowded, I was wrong. The entryway and admission room were packed, absolutely packed, but the various exhibits were not too bad at all. Being a rainy day in NYC, I expected the crowd, so you can imagine how pleased we were when we got to the mineral room and could stop and read about the displays, taking our time with what interested us and not feeling pressured by a crowd to keep moving.
Hershey Pennsylvania was a decent stop along the way. They weren’t crowded being a Tuesday at noon and the “tour” was entertaining. It gave the girls a chance to run around a good bit and I found a bar of Lavender and Blueberry Dark Chocolate….yum!
Welcome home, a mid-west Spring can bring all sorts of things. The next morning we woke to a blanket of white. I wasn’t feeling that one so well, then the fevers started in, plus working a couple 10 hour days….well, I won’t start in on all that again.
I will be putting in three long days this weekend as well. I know I mentioned it before, but please be sure to tip your server well on Easter….I know I would rather be at church with my family on Sunday, sitting down to a nice meal together afterwards. I am better many of my fellow servers would as well. At last count, our little small-town social club that I work at part-time has 140 reservations and I am guessing it will be around 160-75 by the time Sunday rolls around. Not only am I serving, but I am helping with the dessert station and I am looking forward to creating another beautiful display. Oh yes, and a baby shower for 55 people on Saturday. The money will come in handy. My mom is feeling “the mouse” call her name and I am sure we will be heading south before school is out. Life is good!
