Weekends and a Trip
Hello! This weekend has been GLORIOUS! Unbeknownst to you all, my husband and I drove up to Cambridge MA to visit our daughter and son in law on Tuesday morning and we were supposed to stay until Friday morning and return home.
We were watching the weather closely the whole time. On Thursday morning I saw what was once a meager prediction of 1-3 inches of snow in Cambridge being switched to 6-10 inches of snow starting at 1 a.m. on Friday. When the weatherperson said 'pack a blanket' when traveling, that's when I woke my husband up and discussed leaving Thursday afternoon.
I wanted to spend the night in Eastern PA breaking up the 9+ hour drive. He wanted to drive straight home arriving close to midnight. Needless to say, we did what he wished and our drive was decent until we hit State College when the snow started to fall in PA. We made it safely home at 1:30 a.m. Friday morning...
Our nerves were shot and we are still recovering from that rotten drive home. The interstate highway was snow covered and once we swerved on black ice. However, my daughter reported that they had 10 inches of snow by 9 a.m. so there's that. Ever since arriving home we have not left the house except to pick up Frodo from the kennel.
I've been reading and knitting every moment that I can! I think we will be recovering all week.
We had a fantastic time with our daughter and son in law, we saw their new apartment in Cambridge, MA. Had delicious take out meals (pizza one night, sushi the next evening). My husband and I stayed at the Porter Square Hotel which was excellent AND they credited us for the night we did not stay due to the impending storm, so that is fantastic customer service! We will definitely stay there for the next trip during summer days.
I visited four bookstores and enjoyed seeing the diverse book displays managing to buy only ONE book at two stores.
The city views are from our hotel suite, it's gorgeous. But for me, the most beautiful photo in the world is my home and the most beautiful feeling in the world is being home.
How was your weekend?
