Knitting a sweater

Sarah recently knitted a baby sweater for her friend Alex's, who is expecting a girl.

Gary was suspicious that she would complete the sweater on time for the baby shower, since Sarah has been so busy lately, but she delivered on time. Gary now eats crow.

photos in downtown los angeles

While Sarah was up in Santa Cruz visiting her dad, i spent some time wandering around downtown Los Angeles taking some photos of the buildings and seeing what else was happening. The big LA Live project is moving along. The Ritz-Carlton/JW Marriott hotel building is moving along, 50 some stories in total. It was a good day to walk around downtown, a few clouds made the photos interesting, but it was very windy. i'm glad i wasn't working the high steel on a day like that.
LA Live Tower

I found my new favorite sculpture. This is outside of the Ernst & Young Plaza on Figueroa. A nice little comment on work-life balance maybe.

There is a plaque with a poem on it in front of the sculpture.
