Then I rushed over to the Boston Public Library to meet my on-line friend Yaz for the 1st time. What a gift! We talked &amp; talked and I thank her for my delicious lunch. Then life had to go on &amp; we hugged goodbye. I looked around the library for a bit &amp; decided I’d head ‘home’ to Custom House &amp; take it easy. That evening we had a “Rum and Revolution” presentation by a costumed family trio of musicians with a great sense of humor. A good day indeed!!

I got up with the sunrise! amazing. 2,3,4,5. After breakfast with Paul Revere &amp; a ‘using Marriott points’ talk, I was back on the Trolley, 6 past the Omni Parker Hs to the Park St. T. to, godwilling, get my Sr. T Card. No, not there but under Downtown Crossing-sort of. Actually under Macys. My heel was killing me so I was dismayed to hear that the computers were down &amp; NO cards of any kind could be issued. I then went back to street level, saw Sketchers &amp; got 2 pair of Memory Foam shoes.7 Lunch at Falafel King, delicious. While slowly walking ‘home’ I bought a Harvard sweatshirt &amp; Easter chocolate at Walgreens’ - 70% off. Later, I got back on the Trolley considering a stop at Fenway but it was too crowded. 8 Iain’s alma mater, Berklee 9. Sculpture at MIT. Again, I thought of getting off but just rode &amp; did seated sightseeing! A quiet night in for me.

Chilly enough for oatmeal again &amp; the heater on in the studio. St. John’s had their spring concert, beautiful as usual. I renewed my handicap tags at the DMV, in &amp; out in just a few minutes. If you have your paperwork in order, it’s a breeze. Janie in MA wondering if her grandaugher is on her way to Nepal or not after major earthquake. Very strange pizza mistake but I ended up with a whole large pizza for myself. That’s a lotta pizza. Also went to the Rehobeth outlets &amp; managed two pair of shoes as well as a Helly Hanson jacket for Josie. Madeline said she’d like it so I hope it was a good buy. If not she can sell it to a friend or someone at school. 41mpg on trip.

There was still a patch of snow outside! Across the road at Long Wharfe I boarded my Old Town Trolley for the 2hr ride round Boston. I took the whole ride but, at our driver’s recommendation, I got off at Atlantic Avenue &amp; had a lobster lunch. Hopping back on, I got off at Long Wharfe &amp; sat in the sun for a while, making a potty stop I took my Harbour Cruise. The weather was just perfect for being out on the water - just enjoying the views. We sailed down past the Federal Courthouse where the Bomber trial had just ended. Little had I known when I walked down there in 2013 that it would not be the ICA that became famous in upcoming years but rather the Courthouse that would be the site of the Whitey Bulger trial as well as that of the bombers. I have many memories of other trips to Boston over the years &amp; enjoyed reliving those time. After finishing my cruise as the sun was setting, I joined some fellow Custom House residents for the Sangria evening. When I gave my free wine to another guest, I easily made a new friend! As good as the Spanish guitarist was, I was yawning &amp; took my weary self to bed. A day outside makes me a sleepy baby. It was a very good day.

Not too bad in my mind! We started with Indian food with Maria, a whole story. I made rice krispie treats for a party and I also made Dick some shortbread from a Dorie Greenspan recipe. for his birthday. However I didn’t read the recipe first. One day I had 2 pastas - lunch and dinner. All good even if one was Chef BoyArDee. We arrived at the Royal Taj but no Maria yet. The place was packed &amp; no reservations. After waiting a while for her, I suggested we put our name on the list &amp; not try to go to the other restaurant. In the end, Maria arrived, we only waited a bit outside in the wind &amp; agreed this was one of the best ones around. Good choice!

This time I was there on the anniversary. Strange feelings. Because I had a several hour delay at BWI, I got to Boston too late to get my Senior Charlie Card renewed. But otherwise, I had a smooth trip and enjoyed being back on the T and back to Custom House. The view from the observation deck is always spectacular. This time my room faced the harbor so shades down. No 5am sun for me!

I try to make two weeks my max or I start to feel a stress I don't need or want. Crab cakes came from G&amp;M near BWI airport. This week started with Easter Sunday. I picked the location, Harris Crab House since Maria is a vegetarian &amp; Dick will eat most any kind of fish. It was a brisk, windy day so it was inside for everyone. I got the crab imperial &amp; ended up trading my crab for one of Dick’s excellent soft shells. Maria had the imperial also. Dick &amp; I both tried the cream of crab which was pretty glue like. We each got an ice cream dessert &amp; they were rock hard, huge and delicious! The cool weather allowed the spring flowers to start emerging nicely. I had a very good session with Janie despite arriving 2 hours early. Dick got us crab cakes with huge lumps of crab the way a crab cake should be. I finally visited Ramsey at work at St. Johns. Mucho computer work for the Boston trip. Computer first, then clothes. Boarding pass in hand!

That weather photo is at 10pm! that was freaky weather. For whatever reason, I didn’t document a lot this week. Dick was just back from his week in Myrtle Beach SC and it was a lot of catch up. He did have good bicycle weather as opposed to the temps we had. I turned the heat off on Saturday and it went down to 47 in the house! When Dick gets back, the heat always is on early in the a.m. Now I wonder if it will ever be warm enough for the orchid Crista gave me or warm enough to make the kombucha? I spent a lot of time cleaning out the Macbook getting it ready to give to Nong. / Monday was the first JSJ session with Janie since...winter? / Tuesday Dick to his car to Silverstar for a checkup. It wasn’t the usual 1k. :) I put a full load of laundry on the line, first time this spring! I finally found the rest of the Rhine cruise menus etc. Cleaning out has its own rewards sometimes! / Got my 3k steps in at the Mall but boy that floor is really hard on the heel. The cupcake lady enjoyed her cupcake. / Thursday Dick had bloodwork and went to lunch with Brad so I got an Indian carryout. The computer is running slow. I wonder how many days it’s been since I shut it down. :( / It looked like a real Good Friday day with overcast skies, wind and maybe a thunderstorm. That’s what I remember from my childhood. I moved the studio around getting ready for the air conditioner. I still really dislike seeing the wires at the back of the desk but until more stuff gets taken out, I don’t have too many options. I really have no place for those 12” binders. / Saturday Big dark clouds when we went out this am but in an hour the sun was shining. Wind not as bad as they said it could be.

Well at least when that suits me. The change in the spring affects me more and I seem out of sorts when I wake up well after 7am. Of course this is one of the benefits or drawbacks of no longer having to go into an office. Evenings I can handle a bit better except when I realize that it’s time for dinner and my body tells me I have an hour or two more. Fortunately, we usually have some leftovers for ‘himself’ and even better is that he is glad to have them. Me? I’m not hungry until about 7:30 or 8pm so I have to force my body clock to adjust. No, I don’t like Daylight Savings.

We had been married just outside of Boulder in 2001 and the idea of winter in Colorado had seemed wonderful. Wonderful until we had two winters of bitter cold and snow in Maryland. I decided I would stay home and deal with whatever we got here and get to my Doctor’s appointments on time. Dick was not overjoyed to go out there and drive in more serious snow, in fact the snow was so heavy the night he arrived, he stayed in Denver and drove west the next day. The conference went well and he said that Boulder knows how to clear roads AND bike paths immediately. By the time he took this one photo, he also acknowledged that it really was beautiful. I was sorry not to see such beauty again but I had our own snow to shovel every day while he was gone. Not so pretty and definitely not so enjoyable.

I was only in my first year of scrapping and didn't know how to do many things. aaaargh. The new layout was still hard to do because I had changed so many things on the original as I did it, and ran into labeling that was not correct or supplies I no longer had. But I still got to make a page of tv shows I'm now enjoying. This winter has been a serious tv watching next to the fireplace time.

This is a very blurry shot but it brings back wonderful memories of my in laws visiting us in England. They came to babysit us while my xh and I went on a camping trip on the Continent. That is a whole other story and one which doesn't have any photos that I can find. But back to this image. My eldest son is sitting on his paternal grandfather's arm. It is late afternoon as the sun is coming in from the west.  In his leopard pajamas, made by his maternal great grandmother, my son is holding what appears to be a stuffed animal. As it is not blue, is is not his beloved Teddy. What strikes me in this image is how so many beloved items stick in our memory, only to reappear in later years without conscious thought. I, too, now have a pair of leopard flannel jammies! The walls in our bedroom are painted the same dark green. I still have some of that Ethan Allen furniture in our living room. But what I really have is the memory of two people I love/d, together for a short time.

So for Valentine's Day we made reservations for lunch. As I had been in NoVA dog sitting, it was just a drive cross Chain Bridge and down to Black Salt. A bit of confusion when I didn't have a parking app to park on the street but the bad news came inside when they had a very abbreviated menu. Nothing really grabbed us and while we had good meals, it was a bit of a disappointment. We have learned that holidays are never a good idea at restaurants. This was no exception.

That way I know I'll have a couple dozen stories told this year. It's a start! This lad, my former husband, here relaxing just before a wedding down in San Angelo Texas, just had a birthday this week. Birthday boy is now 72. Time does pass, doesn't it. Funnily enough, I now have yellow chairs just like those in the photo. I bought mine on Craigs List a couple of years ago because they really appealed to me. Now I see why. Yellow metal chairs mean a happy time and I didn't even realize it til today! How memories are made... There were many many more elements in the StudioDD template but I wanted it a bit less busy for this older photo. I also recolored the beads to go with his gray suit.

It's also been a while since I made the layout right after doing a blog post! Last Friday, dh had a coupon for a pre-Valentine's Day treat at Starbucks. Coffee and a pastry for $5. Not necessarily the greatest bargain but a nice idea. So off we went when the clock struck 2pm. (That must be a slow time at Starbucks...) I was enticed by the one special...a Flat White with a chocolate croissant (warmed!).  He decided to get the other special ...a Raspberry Chocolate Latte with a shortbread cookie. Mine was just right but as I suspected his choice was way too sweet for him.  This is a man who drinks Sumatran, black no sugar. (ugh...) But we enjoyed our treats, perused the new mugs and tumblers, and the types of coffee pods that fit the old Keurig passed on to us by our grandson. Nothing we needed but I would like one of those stainless straws! While we were there I saw two couples come in but no one else sat at our table or played with the props. Maybe you have to be young enough or old enough to have fun being silly. Put me in the latter category!  Just think...this wasn't even Valentine's Day. It was Friday the 13th, and a good one it was.

So I got three of the little white Ikea frames and each month make a calendar for the center frame and two other images that fit the month. The images are 5x7 so our little skinny wall is nicely filled. The third card, not shown here, is a poster I saw on Pinterest.

Perfect! That freebie was also used as a mask for the photo. Our landlady was Mrs. Ellsworth, and a true gem she was. She took in mostly long term boarders like us. I can only recall one other tenant, a young man our age, David,  whose parents were working were out in Bahrain. Little did I know that I would also end up in Bahrain one day. My husband was working rotating shift work so there were days that I had to stay out of the room while he slept. My son and I wandered through the town of Harrogate, but mainly enjoyed our time in the Valley Gardens. As I recall it was a fairly sunny summer, or maybe I had already learned as we were taught..If the sun was out, take advantage of it.  Mrs. Ellsworth was wonderful to us and oh did she feed us. The English Breakfast was in all its glory then with eggs, bacon, sausage, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, fried bread and a good pot of tea.  While it sounds a lot, the weather wasn't terribly warm to us and with all that walking, at my young age I burned those calories off. As regular tenants, we also had dinner with Mrs. E. I don't recall those meals in detail but I know they were good. Real, fresh food was a given in our years in England. Simple and hearty and delicious. British food had no bad reputation for us! After our meal, we usually sat around and talked, and once in a while Mrs. E. would ask my husband to 'bath the dog.' Old Blackie would reluctantly be led out to that driveway next to the house and get hose downed, soaped up, and rinsed.  He smelled much sweeter and endured these episodes with a British upper lip.  I wish I had a picture of it all. It wasn't an easy few months but even then we knew it was a good time.
