view from our hotel window

Hello! How are you? Well, I've been a traveling woman. We drove (drove!) up to Cambridge Massachusetts on Friday. Ten and a half long hours in a car to visit our daughter and son in law. We had a great time. We stay at the same hotel in Porter Square which is about a mile from their apartment. 

Besides eating lots of great food the entire weekend (sorry no photos), we went to the Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday. On Sunday after Mass and donuts, we hung out in Harvard Square doing lots of shopping then went to the Harvard art museum.

I bought many notebooks, novels, washi tape and bars of chocolate, all necessities. My husband found a work planner that is set up the way he likes it with the week on the left page and notes on the right page.

Yesterday we were up at 4 a.m. to leave so we could be at the dog kennel to pick up sweet Frodo before they closed for the day. We had a wonderful time but golly, I am feeling old these days. I'm sore from head to toe because those long drives are getting challenging. We are considering flying next year.

I hope to catch up with all of you today, if possible!!


  1. That is a very looong drive. I live road trips but after about 8 hours I am ready to stop for the day and rest. Your weekend sounds idyllic though. The photo of the church is spectacular. I think church's of all denominations have some of the most beautiful architecture and art. Catholic churches seem to be the most ornate though.

  2. Aside from the drive, it looks like you had a wonderful time! I hope you got in some knitting during all that time in the car. Cambridge is just far enough away to make it a tough choice between driving and flying. I hope Frodo appreciated your very early departure yesterday!

  3. I was wondering if you two had gone away again! What a fabulous weekend. Cambridge/Boston is such a nice area and what a wealth of things to do and places to visit. I feel the same about long drives...I don't think we can do more than 8 hours now and that's with plenty of stops to get out and stretch. Glad you were able to visit and glad you are home safely!

  4. That is a long drive! But at least you didn't have to worry about the weight of all those notebooks and novels you bought ;-) (my pet peeve when we're flying - I can't just go shopping and buy everything I fancy).
    Glad you had a good time!

  5. Long drives sure aren't as easy as they used to be. LOL It's about 5 hours to see our son and we take a pretty long lunch/coffee break along the way. Giroux has to stretch his legs, you know. LOL

    Sounds like you had a fine time in Cambridge.

  6. That is a long drive, but it sounds like you had a magnificent time! Welcome back though!

  7. So glad you had the trip! It is hard to get older. I am feeling it (knees esp) and I am only 46! I know it only gets harder.

  8. That is a long drive. We take a lot of breaks when we take long trips. It sounds as if you had a wonderful weekend though. I'd love to visit Boston/Cambridge again.

  9. gosh! 10+ hours in a car. i can't do it. max for me is 6 maybe 7. glad you had a good visit and i'm sure frodo was happy to have you home. and yes...chocolate is a necessity! :-)
    love & magicks
