Today I have been making plans for New York. Plans that include seeing "Wicked", eating pizza, seeing at least one Academy Award nominated movie, watching the Academy Awards, and eating at Serendipity.
That's so far.
I'm also having lunch with my very old friend Dede who I knew way back before I had my braces removed. That is going pretty far back. Although the weather is going to be frightful, I don't care - it's New York City, and that is good enough for me.

I got the following email from Sara today:
I have no idea what the weather will have in store for us. It’s not going to be warm, either way. It could be in the 40’s and sunny or it could be snowing. Best to check a couple days before your flight. Bring casual clothes, WALKING shoes (we will be on foot when we are not taking mass transit), maybe something nice to wear to dinner one or two nights, do you want to take yoga, spin (or other gym activities)? If so, you need workout clothes and sneakers.
As for food, wasn’t sure if you follow any celebrity chefs. When Sam visited, we went to a Top Chef restaurant she was dying to try. I’ll just use you as an excuse to try something new.As for shows, totally up for Wicked but look at the link below to theater (pronounced “thea-tah”) reviews just to make sure. Think about whether you want to see a play or a musical? If you are up for a musical, my in-laws said that Fela is one of the best they have seen – ever. And they see a lot of shows. I think it’s produced by JZ and Will Smith.
If you are up for drama, I read that this new Arthur Miller play starring Scarlett Johansen and Liev Schrieber is really good. Forget what it’s called.
Suddenly I am realizing that in 12 days I will be in New York. I cannot wait to be on the East Coast again, because I love the East Coast, and let's face it, it's New York. What's not to love? Besides the dirt and grime and crazy people. But I love that, too. I really cannot wait to see Sara, who I haven't spent any significant time with since high school. That's 20 years.

The past few weeks have been a bit nutty as we have worked to finish up the remodel (we aren't even close yet) as well as colds and my new business on the cusp of launching. Cusp is a cool word. So anyway, blogging hasn't been at the forefront of my mind, but I'm still here and around and hopefully will be more organized sometime in 2015.

Yeah, I guess I am not that close to posting pictures.
However, you should know, that I am very excited to eventually post them.
March 18th is my deadline for a lot of things. Thanks, Jeanne! It's good to have a deadline because then I focus!

Yesterday I also got a new computer for my new venture and it has a 25" monitor and that makes me happy, too. I can have like 7 different windows open and they all look normal. It's a beautiful thing. I also am getting closer to being done with painting the main floor, which has been a long project. I still have to finish the living room (the kitchen is finished), the moulding, our bedroom, Clara's bedroom, find window treatments, and....well, there is a lot left to do, but it seems like it is closer.
And I get to go to New York City a month from today for my birthday weekend to visit my friend Sara, who I haven't seen in 13 years.
This is gonna be a good month.
