Week 14 (March 30th-April 5th): Boston Beginnings

Posted on

I spent a few nights in Boston. Alone. And it was lovely. But not as lovely as this scene that I captured while on an early morning walk.

Boston in the morning

Boston in the morning

The sea returning day by day
Restores the world-wide mart.
So let each dweller on the Bay
Fold Boston in his heart
Till these echoes be choked with snows
Or over the town blue ocean flows.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Week 29 (July 14th – July 20th): Busy Little Bees

Posted on

Last week was so hot and humid that Jeff started taking his morning coffee and “newspaper” to the patio. I joined him on the few mornings when the kids slept late and was surprised to see the flowers along the backside of our house was the spot to be (or bee if I really want to make you groan?).

Week 3 (January 13th-19th): I’m Bored!

Posted on

I would LOVE to meet the person that taught that phrase to my children. There is no way they should be bored! Ever! So when Liam started claiming at 6:30 in the morning that he was “bored” I tossed him the tupperware and told him to get to work matching the covers with the containers!

I’m not sure what my desired outcome was, but he really enjoyed himself. I wasn’t surprised since he is the puzzle king and finding the right match is similar to completing a puzzle, but I was surprised when he woke up bright and early the next day asking to do it again! I swear I will never buy another toy or game again 🙂
