So this past week has been... interesting.
There was a lot of fun stuff, but also one really awful run in with the Jersey City Parking Authority that almost ended with me spending Tuesday night in my car on Columbus Blvd. But instead of dwelling on that, let's focus on the fun stuff that happened, shall we?
Tuesday night my husband performed at the new talent showcase at Gotham Comedy Club.
First we stopped by the New York Public Library to see the original stuffed animals that inspired A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh stories.
For all the time I spend in New York, and despite the fact that I'm a librarian, I'd never actually set foot in the NYPL until Tuesday afternoon. And I'm not ashamed to say that being there made me feel a little bit giddy.
So there they are: the "real-life" Winnie the Pooh and friends. In case any of you are wondering, Eeyore's tail really is held on by a pin. I thought that was adorable. Also, Piglet is SUPER tiny.
And there's my husband on the stage of Gotham Comedy Club! I believe this is actually the third time he's been there, but it's still pretty exciting. :-)
On Saturday night we had a bunch of people over, and friends of ours brought their 5-month-old boxer puppy, Lilly. So far she is the only dog I've known who can wear Elvis out.
There's Elvis, ready for a nap, and Lilly about to pounce. Needless to say, he was a tired boy yesterday!
As far as the jewelry business goes, custom orders continue to abound, and I'm trying to line up some craft shows for spring/summer (difficult when there seems to be some sort of wedding-related event every Saturday from now til the end of July, but I'm doing my best!). I need to send out some applications and I'll be sure to post dates and locations here as soon as everything is confirmed!
