life : come on winter, enough!
NYBG Orchid Show
Hi Everyone -
I hope you all had a very nice weekend! We went to the New York Botanical Garden to see the Orchid Show and it was beautiful (more on that to come). It was also really intimidating with people like the lady below using some seriously, serious cameras. What is that gizmo on the front? I was too shy to ask her.
We also saw some early signs of spring before the snowstorm hit last night (more on that to come, too). Hope all the early growth will survive a few inches of snow. Hope we will, too!
For all of you yearning for winter to finally turn into spring, this adorable video for Winter Song by Sara Bareilles & Ingrid Michaelson should give you hope. For those of you transitioning in the opposite direction, it will give you a hint about what you can expect ;).
We also saw two really intense movies - Gomorrah based on a 'true' story about the Italian 'mafia' written by Roberto Saviano who currently seems to be in hiding. And, based on Jamie's recommendation, Transiberian about an American couple who encounters a mysterious pair of fellow travelers. I think the moral of each movie is - don't speak to strangers or people who are engaged in strange behavior that might be detrimental to your health.
We'll miss Paul Harvey who passed away this weekend. He was married to his wife Angel for almost 70 years before she died last year. We think he was great and always kept us listening for the 'rest of the story'. As Paul would say, 'good DAY!'
