Busy little bee

The problem with doing a bunch of stuff is that by the time I'm done with it, I'm too tired to actually blog about it!

We went camping in Shenandoah National Park last weekend, and it was just beautiful and amazing.  It's where I used to go camping/hiking with my family when we lived in VA and MD, and while my parents have been going back, it's been years and years since I'd been.  So it was a lot of fun seeing everything changes.  Scott took some truly amazing photos, so I'll have to do a photo post posthaste, since seriously, amazing.  

So that this isn't just a post about how eventually, I'm going to make a post, check out this article about ancient Greek and Roman sculptures.  Turns out they weren't lily white stone, they were painted!  The article is old, but I really want to find out if they will be exhibiting them elsewhere.  It is so easy to forget that what we see now of antiquities' treasures is after several millennia pounding away at them.  The pyramids were clad in blindingly polished, white limestone and capped with gold.
