Grey Majesty

I had to work this morning, visiting a school to talk to some young students about the Native American history of the area.  It was a fun program, but a rainy, messy day, so I was happy to be done for the week around 11am.  I hurried out of the building to my car, but stopped for a quick shot of this lovely church.  Even grey stone on a grey day can sometimes seem to glow.  Love it.

The Scuttlebutt

So after a late night at the museum, I got up around 6:15 this morning and headed down to Hartford with the curator of one of my museums.  We were attending the second day of the 2011 New England Museum Association conference.  The workshops I attended were interesting (the view above is of people listening to a great period wallpaper reproducer), but the best part, as usual, was the gossip.  ;)

Always Exciting

A glimpse into the scintillating world of the museum professional tonight.  Above is a shot of my dinner, which I ate in the museum kitchen around 6pm.  I went in late (which gave me a lovely morning at home with the hubby and the puppy) and babysat one of our lectures until about 10pm.  I'm exhausted now, but home in bed.  Up tomorrow at 6am for a museum conference in Hartford!  I tell ya, the excitement never ends.  ;)

Holiday Cheer

I know, it's too soon for Christmas decorations!  I'm a big fan of waiting until the end of November in order to give Thankgiving its due.  However, one of my museums has an annual tree and wreath festival and drop-off for the event has begun.  I think I walked past this tree a half dozen times today.  Ah well, I love Christmas, so I don't mind too much.

Solar Flaring

I had a very busy day at work, but yeah, this garden is where I spent part of my morning.  Can't argue with that!
