This weekend was exactly what I needed. Beautiful weather and lots of relaxation.
We started out sleeping late on Saturday, and then took the T down to the Charles/MGH stop. From there we took a very nice stroll up the Esplinade all the way to Harvard Square. Probably about six miles or so... then we rewarded ourselves with vietnamese food before heading home to read and have cocktails on the roof deck.
Today we headed out to Worcester to spend a really really good day with our friends Tanja and Marty. There is nothing better for the soul than sitting out on a sunny day with good people enjoying great conversation, excellent food, and a few drinks. Last week was long and crappy, so this was exactly what I needed to recharge my batteries for the week ahead.
On the way home this evening we had a little automotive excitement. Liz's exhaust pipe disconnected from the car and was scrapping concrete, no doubt sending up a shower of sparks as we cruised down the Mass Pike. We pulled into a rest stop in Natick and called AAA. Instead of towing us, the very friendly tow guy bent the rules and showed me how to remove the exhaust pipe and muffler so that we could drive home (very loudly) under our own steam. No great trauma, and I learned something new about auto maintenance.
In the last two days, Liz has had two very promising job nibbles. Interesting things may be on the horizon.
