If you never read the book Seen Art? it is really fun and covers the different art at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. We actually got it before one of our trips to NYC and after we visited MOMA, the kids remembered seeing the art in the book. Definately a way to travel if you don't live as close to the Big Apple like we do.
So ask me again next week: "Seen ART???"

I have always loved Andrew Wyeth's quiet watercolors and one in particular at the Cincinnati Art Museum (which I can't find a picture of) that I always found and stared at when I was growing up. I looked for it online and found out that right now through May 6th, the Cincinnati Art Museum is having a special show of Andrew Wyeth's work! We just saw the largest collection of the Wyeth family's work at Brandywine River Museum but those of you who are lucky to be in Cincy, can see more!

You're probably wondering why I'm taking pictures of my laundry room! I just made this curtain and I'm showing off my handiwork. It only took about an hour for the whole thing...gingham is like graph paper, you just follow the lines!
Happy Birthday Glenda!!!
Wednesday came and went without a birthday posting for you... but here it is (with Jane!).
I hope you had a really good birthday and we all wish you a wonderful year this year!
I know you'd rather be down in Florida with Jane and family, but please come visit us soon in Pennsylvania. We love you!!!!

What is it about Peppermint Patty that I always related to? Her tomboy assertiveness, her attraction to comfortable footwear at all times, or her timeless bob with bangs? Or was it how nice she always was to Marcy who had double her IQ but they still remained best friends? Maybe it was that her name was equivalent to chocolate and peppermint? I think it was that she had a big crush on Charlie Brown, and who didn't like Chuck?! She could play baseball with the best of them, but still had that girly-romantic side! Whatever the reason, she was always my kind of girl.

We hear owls at night also... there are several trees in the back that have holes in them-- perfect for owls to nest in (see below). They sound like this: whooo who who. Debbie, do you know what kind that might be? I still remember the Barn Owl from Mr. Henning's Biology class so I know it's not that one (that and we don't have a barn!)
Maybe spring will come soon but right now it really feels like winter!
