Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated this; there just hasn't been a lot going on except work and BPW stuff, which is too boring to write about.  I've redressed my fashion dolls so they are in spring colors, which brightens up my living room a lot. 

Aaaaand...after swearing I wasn't going to be buying any more BJDs, I couldn't resist the Zuzu Papi Pilot dog from Luts.  He's just too cute, and my Police Cat needs a boyfriend, anyway.  I'm guessing it will be 5-6 weeks before I get him, since that's how long it took to get Tom Angel.  Which is okay; by then, spring will really be here, and maybe I'll get out of this malaise and be in the mood to take pictures again.

Here are a couple of pictures from my February trip to DC.  Since the weather was so horrible my only completely free day there, I didn't get a chance to do much tourist stuff.  However, I did have a 3-hour break during the meetings on Friday, and the weather was really nice, so I walked down to Lafayette Park, around the Treasury Building, down around the front of the White House, and back to the NEA building where the meeting was being held.  These pictures are from that brief break.

This is the statue of Lafayette in Lafayette Park:

Photo of statue of Alexander Hamilton in front of the Treasury Building (Hamilton was the first Secretary of the Treasury):



And the front of the White House, shooting through the iron fence.  It's really nice having a camera with (1) a 12x zoom, and (2) image stabilization, so there are no "shaky" pictures.
