    1. I wasn’t sure how to photograph the Quran, because the whole thing was just gorgeous, but there’s the glare factor. This section of the museum has different examples of calligraphy, and it is spectacular. When I go next week I’ll try to get a better example. I’ve never been to this section of the Met and there is just so much amazing stuff

  1. I love the title of this weekly post “What Inspired Me.” Just those words are so uplifting – reminds me to “be inspired” as I go through the week. Love the large flower picture. And, for some reason, I have always loved Skee Ball. Have a good week ahead!

    1. It’s funny because I just scheduled a post that talks about how lazy I get in the summer. And to be fair, I do a lot for my parents remotely, and talk to the home health aide a lot

      1. That’s funny. You have a lot of (good) energy bottled up inside of you. Ever hear that saying, that 10% of the people do 90% of the work…if you need something done, ask those people. You are one of the 10%ers. Bet my money on it.

      2. Thank you for that! Though, I almost sent a nasty email to a commenter the other day….so I don’t know how much of my energy is good…

      3. that’s because you care and are passionate about something. I taught a high school shop class one year, and lost it…(blew a gasket/ got in that kids face and was ready to deck him) My cousin who was a high school principle @ the time, told me not to be too hard on myself..I was mad, because I cared.

  2. Yes, the gallery did a great job on highlighting the main picture! I want a cup of tea from that tea pot. My friend collects teapots she would love that one!
    Haven’t played Skee ball for so long, but always had fun with it, especially when the kids were young.

  3. All the photos are awesome but the fact you went to see “Come from away” grabbed my attention. During that terrible time I was living in Stephenville, Newfoundland, where some of the flights that had been re-routed to NL sat on the tarmac at the local airport. Stephenville was one of the air force bases that were built on the island during the second world war and many Americans later bought summer homes in the area. Needless to say there is a strong American influence there. My father worked on the base and made many friends with Americans stationed there.

    Anyway,, I am rambling. I am just so pleased you got to see this play.

  4. I have to get to the beach! You get to a lot of baseball games! My guys are not doing very well right now. Hopefully the All Star break will give them a reset. Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures!

  5. I like the carved details in 451 and 450. You maybe didn’t notice, but I especially like the light filtering through the carved portions of the Qu’an holder – making it a unique feature of the piece IMHO.
    Oh and lucky you to have such an uncrowded beach the day of your visit!

  6. That’s a lot of wonderful inspiration! I’d LOVE to see Come From Away – many friends have told me how wonderful the show is. Hoping it comes again to the Boston area. Your beach shots are quintessential summer – I go to the Jersey shore soon. 🙂

  7. Such a fun week! I had to smile at that delicious looking quesadilla. It looks more like a taco. That’s appropriate because where we lived in Mexico, just about anything you ordered came out looking like a taco (to this gringa anyway). They all tasted good too.

  8. Love all the pics.
    I’m always intrigued at the craftsmanship of items like armor from hundreds of years ago–amazing they could do that without all the modern tools of today.
