Happy Birthday, Eiffel Tower!

The Eiffel Tower is 125 today!  Here's a picture that I took when we were there two years ago.  En printemps, il fait beau! 


The Keeper of the Herd

Here's another beautiful painting with sheep from the Art Institute: The Keeper of the Herd by Jean-Francois Millet.


Apricot Almond Oatmeal

Do you like oatmeal?  Even if you're not a big fan I bet you would like Willliams-Sonoma's apricot almond oatmeal.  So good.



We finally made it downtown a couple of weeks ago.  This winter has been so miserable!  After an hour or two at the Art Institute, I have a lot of great artwork to share.  This one is called Meekness by Eustache Le Sueur.  It's dated 1650, but it look so modern!  I love the lamb.


Barr Co Cream

OK - I'm back.  I've been really overwhelmed this semester.  I'm taking three classes "for fun," but it's taking up a lot of my time!  (In addition to Young Women, family and home stuff, etc.)  So I was considering discontinuing this blog and going to Pinterest and only being online sporadically.  But over the past couple of months I've been seeing so many great things that I've wanted to blog about...  So today I decided to change it up and to make my blog a place just for me to post whatever I want to remember, whenever I have time to post.  You are welcome to join me whenever you have time!

One great thing that has saved me this winter (Chicago's 3rd coldest ever) is my Barr Co Cream.  I picked up a tube at the Missouri Botanical Garden, and I've been using it liberally.  The scent is divine.
