a crazy kind of week

let me see. We had loads of snow- that was last Sunday. I love it when it snows like this- it looks like cotton balls in the azalea bush.

The snow made for lots of icicles on every house-

There was the wonderful day of the inauguration. I loved watching it on TV and then a neighbor had a celebratory tea- such fun. The day took a turn though- a bit before 5 I got a call that my son had cut his hand at work and the rest of the evening was spent doing the adrenaline mom thing. Table saw + finger= bad combination. It really wasn’t bad but I totally freaked. My husband took him to the ER. I am such a wimp. I couldn’t even bear to hear him describe what happened. So now I will probably always remember that as part of Obama’s inauguration.

And, what else? I have been working very hard on a project that you’ll know about in a few weeks- so that is boring to blog about. I am planning to do a class on tiny worlds but have been too busy with that other project to post the info. I will try to do that tomorrow. And, lastly, I am going to New York City (and Brooklyn) next week- Wed. 1/28 to Saturday. Got any great ideas for what I should do or see?  I am planning to go to this embroidery show. And, if anyone is interested, I am always up for a meet-up.

  1. Agh! A table saw, I don’t know if I would be able to listen to the description either. Those few details are cringe-inducing enough! I hope he mends swiftly! And lucky duck heading to the big apple. Especially Gallery Hanahou! Have a wonderful trip.

  2. I can’t wait to find out about your new project–although I guess I will wait. I haven’t been to NY (or Boston) in years, and I haven’t seen snow in quite awhile either. But I believe you’ve inspired me to get on the train and run up to Santa Fe to the Folk Art Museum–always good for a burst of inspiration. We’ve got a new president! I’m still pinching myself to see if I’m dreaming!

  3. Oh my goodness, your poor son! And poor parents! I am guessing we never ever lose our capacity to worry, no matter how big and strong and capable our children become. Plus, it’s so essential, having a whole and functioning hand. I’m relieved that you’re still making wonderful plans to do wonderful things, though, as that tells me the situation isn’t too dire.

    I’m especially fond of the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn — it’s pretty to walk around. My favorite place there is a restaurant (I think it’s called the Chip Shop) that’s fish and chips on one side and Indian cuisine on the other, and customers could mix and match, and drink amazing imported beverages I’d never heard of.

  4. Yikes, sorry to hear about your son’s hand. That’s a call that will sink your stomach. Hope all is well now.

    Onto fluffier things, I LOVE that first shot of the snow in the bushes, so peaceful. Are you ready for MORE of it? I’m not feeling that peaceful about all the dang snow!
