This week I’m posting a photo a friend took on a recent trip to upper New York State.  Here’s what he said about this photo:

In 1874 the French artist Claude Monet was born in Paris France. He is the most famous impressionist artist in history.

The Mirabeau Inn & Spa at Skaneateles NY. was built to replicate a French Chateau outside of Paris France. The center

piece of this French Chateau in America is a Monet styled garden, designed in a scaled down version of the Monet garden 
in Paris France.

My lil’ heart is in a year-round school, so we get a very short summer break.  She was in school through 6/19, so we celebrated our first day of summer Wednesday by going to the local art museum, having lunch together and picking enough wild blackberries to bake a cobbler.

George Inness (1825-1894) Sunset on the River, 1867

William Merritt Chase (1846-1916) The Song, 1907

Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) Summertime, 1894

Theodore Robinson (1852-1896), World’s Columbian Exposition, 1894

Purple Echinacea and a cute little bug critter.

My lil’ heart making her own outdoor art.  My favorite piece in the place!

“Our” wild blackberry bush

Our blackberry cobbler!  Yummy!

PS – I’m currently on a mini-vacation, so I’m preparing this beforehand so I can hit “publish” and be done on Saturday.  No Saturday Savings post this weekend.

I came across some printed photographs the other day and thought, “Where are these?”  I checked my external drive – couldn’t find them, checked the hard drive on my PC, couldn’t find him – ditto with my laptop hard drive.  Finally found a DVD I had burned the pics too, and transferred them to my external.  *shew*  Wonder how many more pictures I need to transfer!  One of my biggest fears is losing pictures!

These were taken Mother’s Day, 2008 in Dallas at the Texas Discovery Gardens.  I don’t know what kind of flowers most of these are, but if you know, I’d love for you to tell me!

See the Spider?

The fountains

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

My little one goes to year-round school, so we have the last two weeks ahead of us, and we are crazy busy!  We’ve been running around trying to remember everything we have to get done.  We’ve got dress rehearsals and dance recital, choir performance at a baseball game, talent show, art classes, volunteer work and we are redecorating her room.  I’m suddenly very tired.  With all the hustle and bustle in the house – one member of our family is completely unphased.

This past week my daughter and I attended a Volunteer Appreciation lunch from the library, and they took us to a new museum in our area, the Crystal Bridges Museum.  We were allowed to take photos (with no flash), so I used my phone.  The pictures aren’t as clear as I would like, and I don’t have the title and artist for each photo, but we sure did enjoy our trip!  We’ll be visiting again this summer.

We traveled to Columbus, GA to visit our daughter, son-in-law, and baby grand-daughter for Mother’s Day weekend.  While we were there we visited the Fort Benning and went to the National Infantry Museum & Soldier Center .  Here are some photos of the museum – it details Wars and Battles in America chronologically.

And one last picture of the grandbaby!
