The days following Thanksgiving were pretty low-key. I spent time with family, played with my nieces, saw some friends, and in general did a great job doing no work whatsoever!
Friday night I went out to my friend Mike’s dad’s place for their big post-Thanksgiving party (and I brought the second rum cake). It was a lotta fun, and good to catch up with some high school peeps and meet some new folks as well. Saturday afternoon was absolutely gorgeous, and I really enjoyed the brief sunshine and mild weather, and met a friend for coffee at the Espresso Royale Caffe down in Back Bay, and then another friend on Sunday afternoon at Crema Cafe in Harvard Square. The rental car that I’ve been using is a bit bizarre – it has no automatic locks, but does have XM Radio. Go figure. Still, I needed to get an auxiliary cable for my iPod so that I would have something to listen to when I drive down to Rhode Island later this morning!
This morning I had to wake up at 7am so that I could watch my eldest niece when everyone went out – my mom was out taking my dad and grandma to the airport where they were off to Florida; my little sister was off to NYC and my older sister was taking my younger niece to pre-school. I’ll be heading out to Rhode Island shortly for a day trip; weather seems like it will be pretty good!
