Beginning the Month
The beginning of March felt pretty decent. Shops, restaurants and museums were all open in Houston.
Halfway through the month things changed drastically. I'm so grateful for those museum visits, in the beginning of the month.
Norman Rockwell: American Freedom
My visit to the MFAH wasn't exactly happy, but I was so grateful to see the exhibit. Reading about Ruby Bridges and her bravery, did actually make me smile.
Seeing the four paintings that represented FDR's Four Freedoms, was very moving. The image on the right, "Freedom From Fear" is very relevant for today.
At the Color Factory, I embraced my inner child with some hands-on exhibits with color.
Now, these happy photos make me cringe a little. On the day I visited, I was in heaven! The art installations were inspiring. Days later, I was worried that I'd put myself and others at risk.
Stay at Home Order
For the last half of the month, we were pretty much hunkering down at home. Spring weather made things easier. I pulled the canoe out for a little fresh air.
Houston didn't officially call for a "stay at home" order, until the 24th. I felt lucky for pretty weather and a home and husband.
We celebrated at home. Then again, we always do on St. Patrick's Day.
We worked on puzzles and painting projects.
We cleaned the garage and found treasures in there, that we didn't remember we had!
We made a little music. The ukuleles got dusted off and the piano music came out.
This has been an odd and eerie month, but we've felt connected with family and friends.
Thank goodness for technology! Emails, texts, phone chats... and Zoom! We had our first Zoom (Tiki-themed) Happy Hour with our kids! Smiles and laughter! Yay for that!
