Jeanne's kitchen

Some snapshots of Jeanne's kitchen I helped with. So much fun to do and lots of laughs. We gutted it and added Ikea. Plus Jeanne's unique sense of collecting and minimalism. It will be in the April addition of Cue.

The Mayer kids have had a string of community service lately.

Mathilda played the violin with the honors orchestra for a packed house at the Lighthouse for the Blind, as part of a communtiy service "Heart and Soul" week at Lusher.
Mose helped Josh and I and lots of Peter Mayer employees mulch the trees in the "Peter Mayer grove" at City Park.
Mathilda and I donated our time at the Dragons Den, a soup kitchen at St. Georges's Church, as part of the Heart and Soul week at Lusher. She was in charge of giving out only 1 cup cake each. (one for you, two for me?)
Mathilda was pooped and it showed as she participated in a "Fun Run" fundraiser that capped off the Lusher Heart and Soul week. She ran 8 laps around school. Mose ran 9.

A sculpture in City Park entitled "still standing"

This mosaic is part of the series of public art commissioned by the Arts Council and Joan Mitchell. Really interesting if you like found objects. I will be blogging about all of them as soon as I see them all.

Mud bugs are back!

Inauguration snapshots. :) :) :) Just so cool to be there.

The moment...
The start of our 3 mile hike.
The best t-shirt.
Hundreds of buttons to choose from...
People were lined up to throw shoes at a replica of W, much cheering.
A homemade Obama hoodie.
Inaugural cupcakes.
Josh at the Southern Ball.
Obama stuff everywhere you looked.
Inaugural bliss? Yes, but here I'm longing for a warm New Orleans.
