Wednesday Already?!!

Whoa! This week is flying by! Today was hopping as it was our last day of our fiscal year at work. Of course, I had to wish everyone a happy new year's eve. LOL I love accountant humor.

It looks like I am going to have to make a couple of trips to the deYoung Museum in San Francisco in the next few months. From now until September 6th, the deYoung has a collection of Impressionist Painters from the Musee de Orsay which includes original Monet, Degas, Manet, Renoir and Cezanne. OMG!!!!! I have loved Degas since I was a little girl, and loved ballerinas. I have to go. They are even selling discount tickets at Costco. But wait there's more!

From September to January, is the post Impressionist collection. It includes Seurat, Gaugin, and get this, VAN GOGH!!! Van Gogh is my very favorite painter. The collection even includes his Starry Night Over the Rhone. Van Gogh actually painted three different starry night paintings. To think that I could see one in person is beyond what I can even imagine. It is not that I want to go. It is that I have to go. I will have to arrange a group to go up. San Francisco is about 2 1/2 hours here so it can be done as a day trip. If you are going to be in SF during this time frame, here is their website: This is such a big deal.

By the way, I finished the most wonderful book last night. It was Mitch Albom's, "Have A Little Faith." What a beautiful little book. He is such a wonderful writer. I truly loved "Tuesdays With Morrie" and "The Five People You Meet In Heaven." All were wonderful books and made me feel stronger in my faith when I read them. The one I read last night was truly wonderful. It made me feel really good today when I thought about it.

Well, I am off to get some much needed rest for tomorrow is the start of a new fiscal year and should be quite busy.

I just read a great book that you might be interested in. "Claude and Camille" by Stephanie Cowell is a novel about the life of Claude Monet and his first wife, Camille. It's historical fiction, but was a very good read.
