I'm home again, readers.
All over Provincetown, where we were on vacation last week, I saw these medallions embedded in the streets (up top), which I interpreted as welcome signs to us creative types. What else could they be?
Michael and I had a week of glorious weather on the Cape. We generally don't do much when we're on vacation: we read, stroll, drink coffee, and relax. We didn't even go to the beach this year. (Though I did swim in the bay, which was steps away from where we were staying.) We ate lobster once. One highlight was getting to see Broadway star Audra McDonald perform in concert -- magnificent!
A few pics from our trip -- can you spot the me-mades?
As Amtrak has changed its no-dogs-allowed policy, this year we were able to travel on the train with the dogs to Boston, and from Boston take a high-speed ferry directly to Provincetown, which is at the very tip of Cape Cod. This meant we didn't have to rent a car or drive, which can easily take 6-7 hours. The trip by train and ferry wasn't much faster, but we were able to sit back and enjoy the ride and we arrived feeling refreshed instead of frazzled.
Meanwhile, readers, I start classes at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) again tomorrow evening. This semester, I'm taking Draping II and Tailoring III. I had been signed up for Tailoring II (whose focus is pants), but there weren't enough students registered, so they cancelled it. I went to the department today to request permission to take Tailoring III, which is being offered. Fortunately, they okayed it, and I'll take Tailoring II next time. Tailoring III is all about making jackets and will be taught by the same professor I had for Tailoring I last spring. I'm psyched.
And that's it!
I can't believe it's time to return to school already but I'm eager to get back to class. As always, I'll keep you posted about what I've been learning.
Have a great day, everybody!
