Fifty-Two Weeks of My Healing…

Week 35:

That day was a good day, sure it did not start out great.  Mom thought I had gotten us lost on the way to the museum.  But once we got there and sat on the benches before we went in, things had been cleared.  It’s not how you start; it’s how you finish.  That day finished on a wonderful note.  Miss you mom.

Fifty-Two Weeks of My Healing…

Week 3:


mom at museum

This photo was the first time mom had gone to The Blanton Museum.  It was a fun day after we got there, before it was a little nerve wracking, only because we took the bus, and we walked down to the museum, and I was figuring out which way to turn, but once I righted myself, we were on our way, and she loved it.  I never did get a chance to take her to other museums around Austin, but she really did love this one.  This is the stacked waters wall she is standing in front of.  It was a very fun day indeed.

A Day at the Museum

With my mom, this would be her first trip to an Austin museum, so I took her to The Blanton Museum downtown.  She loved it, now she can’t wait to go to more museums.  One of the things I love about having my mom living here in this city, is that there are more things to do with her, more food to eat, more places to see, and more things to do, yes, I love this city.

A Day At The B!

That is the Blanton Museum.  Today was free admission to the Blanton, every Thursday is a free day.  So with it being my day off, thought I’d go see what was new. 

All about The Grimm Bros.  The very strange and pretty creepy pics.  Stories we all grew up on.  Here are a couple of photos from today.




A lot can be said about art, what makes it…  Well it is all subjective, art is what you make it.  I, myself think art is many different things, hey If it makes you feel something, then so be it. 

Have you visited an art museum lately, if not, I highly recommend it.

Oh what a time I had, I got sweaty, because it was hot, but it was oh so enjoyable, and I hope to do it again next year, but perhaps with a plus 1.

Well the adventure is not quite over yet, this coming Sunday I will head downtown once again for the Fall edition of the Pecan Street Festival, even more fun.  Stay tuned.

Day 286:

Today I am…  Not completely Up!  Yes, I didn’t get to bed till around 11 last night, so that is about 4 hours of sleep, some times, my body just will not let me sleep, so as the case last night, but here I am, have to be at work by 7 am this morning, oh perfect joy.  Happy Monday y’all!  Anyhoo, yesterday may have started out rocky, but it ended on a pretty good note, I knocked out two museums, that I had never been to, got some good photos, and enjoyed the day.

These photos here are from the Harry Ransom center.  They have an exhibit of making of Gone With The Wind, being I have never seen this movie, all they had going on was pretty dang amazing.  Looks like I may have to get to watching this Classic.  But for now here are just some of Scarlett O’ Hara’s Dresses.

Oh I am sure she had plenty more to offer here, but these are the dresses they had on display.  It was a pretty cool showing.  I might have to just go back.  Oh well, for now I better get this cup of coffee into me and get ready to start my day.

Today I am…  Not completely Up!

Day 80:

Today I am…  Taking in the arts.  Today was such a beautiful day, I decided to spend it downtown at the art museum.  I even rode the new metro rapid bus, I can say I just don’t feel it’s worth the 3 bucks you have to pay, but that is a story for another day.  It was a smooth ride, not many people going downtown on it, but coming back up town, well it was pretty full there.  I will ride it again, I say it’s an alright bus, just alright.  To be continued.

So went to the Blanton Museum, today was free admissions day, every Thursday is free, and since it was my day off I decided to hit it up.  Camera in hand these are a few of the photos I took, I will post more photos another day, but you have the pleasure of seeing a few here.
