Now living in Baltimore, Maryland!

October 1st Mr.EG and I moved into our new apartment in downtown Baltimore. In the 11 days that I’ve lived here, I’ve decided that it’s a little bit different.  It’s a much smaller place than Philadelphia, with less shops and downtown life.  It is also lacking vegetarian Chinese food (or if there is any, I haven’t found it yet). However there are a ton of Indian restaurants so that at least is covered! The local farmers market is held on Sunday under I-83.  I’ve already been there twice, and it will be a regular part of my week while it’s open.  Wanna see what I got this week?  Here it is:

My local yarn store, A Good Yarn,  and library have also been visited. And of course will be visited often.

As I get settled in, here in my new city, expect to see new photos of my surroundings.

PS. I’m looking for a new job, dear Internets.  Admin. Assistant position anyone?

Philadelphia Museum of Art

My sister and her fiancée visited this past weekend. Lucky for us the Philadelphia Museum of Art  had its First Sunday of the month Pay what you wish admission.  We visited the Perelman Building first and had a wonderful surprise! First up was the display Kantha: The Embroidered Quilts of Bengal from the Jill and Sheldon Bonovitz and the Stella Kramrisch Collections.  So Cool!

So if you have a chance go see the exhibit.  If you’re able to get there before June 13th (three days from now) also go see the Marcel Wanders Daydreams exhibit in the Perelman.  This made me SO HAPPY! There was a crochet chair and crochet “Topiary Sid” (two of them). These were all crochet doilies joined together and epoxied into shape. I’ve liked the way doilies look, but never had any use for them myself until now.  This made me want to grab my hook and just go make a bunch.  Talk about making my day.  My family thought I was crazy for being so excited. I just smiled and said whatever.  🙂

With visitors in town we were eating out everyday.  In Philadelphia we always try to narrow our food choices by nationality first and then chose between resturants.  The wide variety of food is something I Love about Philly.  I’ll really miss that when I move.  So we had Indian, Thai, Middle Eastern, and bar food (while watching the Fliers).  Saturday we had some other visitors join us for dinner at King of Tandoor, Mr. EG’s mom and stepdad.  So nice to see them if only for a few hours.  The first time eating Indian turned out very well for two of our visitors and thankfully they’re willing to eat it again. Yum Yum.
