relaxing and enjoying quiet moments of our days.

in the comment section with a link to your blog.
This weekend we visited our son up near the Boston area. My weekend was jammed packed and non stop. I think it'll take me a week to recover! Friday night we were out and about in Cambridge, we did a bit of shopping and of course ate dinner. The cold weather returned and let's say it was brisk!!
Saturday morning we headed out to Concord to see the historical town and of course some super cool houses. The one above is Louisa May Alcott's home...yup. Totally neat. Standing there taking a photo of her house knowing that she was standing there way back when looking at her house too. I felt a kinship of sorts. I wonder who will be taking photos of my house 100-200 years from now. History was my LEAST favorite subject in school, how could that be? I love it now.
Pizza was our lunch choice and after walking about in the chilly weather, it was nice to be in a warm restaurant. We drove over to the Old North Bridge and again enjoyed the history and the beautiful scenery of the autumn season.
After all that history, we went to Ikea. The best place ever!! I know it doesn't have any 'old time' feel but that store just inspires me to clean and organize and live efficiently. I love walking around there. We bought some new silverware since I've been unable to find anything I like locally.
We left early this morning to head home before the traffic. I love to visit a city, but my oh my, the traffic is horrendous! I guess we are used to what we live.
How was your weekend?
