yesterday

You have seen, if you looked two posts down, what the weather was like yesterday morning.  What the pictures don't reveal accurately is the terrible wind!  It was a nasty cold day.  The kind of day I just LOVE -- as long as I am staying in my house.
But I had big plans and they weren't to stay home all day.  In spite of being unable to get out of my driveway, I was able to do what I had been looking forward to for at least a week!
My friend Robbie and I rode the light rail train downtown, (by this time the snow and wind had stopped!!) and went to
 tea at the beautiful historic Brown 
  It was absolutely lovely.  Really.  Just wonderful!  
Then we walked around just a bit and then we went to our friend Megan DiMaria's Book launch party!  You know for her newly published book, Searching for Spice.  I am so happy for her!  It is so exciting
 to have a long-time dream come true!  There was a very nice turn out and it was in a very cool location.  Its called the D&F Tower.  It is Denver's first sky 
scraper and was the tallest building west of the Mississippi when it was built.
Our party was right above the clock.  The elevator went to just bellow the clock and then we climbed stairs behind the clock to get to the floor above.  That kind of thing is extremely difficult for me as I get vertigo in those situations.  But my friends were so understanding and helpful.
It was very nice and fun.  I even went out on the balcony that
 you can see there above the clock.  For some reason, that didn't cause 
any dizzy, wooziness.  Weird.  But anyway.  It was a great time!

After that Robbie and I stopped at the Cheesecake factory for something with some protein in it to counteract all the sugar and caffeine we had consumed earlier.  Yummy.  
It was a very, very nice day.  

Got to Jan's blog for some great photos of the event!

  3. oo, I see what you mean. From a distance it doesn't look wide enough to accommodate a party. Glad you got to go.
