Mary has been in my blogs before. We went to high school together and reconnected through Facebook 30 years later. It was a lovely week. We went on walks in her neighborhood, out for dinner and drinks, and spent a night out at a Cambridge bar, Toad, where the music was good and the company enjoyable.
We visited the Harvard Museum of Natural History where they have a collection of Blaschka glass models of plants, the “Glass Flowers." I'm not kidding, these things are amazing! I kept saying "these aren't glass...these cannot be glass!" They were beautiful.
I also went out for dinner with my friend Marsy who lives in the Boston area. I met Marsy while at Squam, a knitting camp, in 2013. No photo, but great company.
We also went out to see a show at Emerson Paramount Center.
The best part of the week was spending Thanksgiving with Mary and her friends. Mary made a full Thanksgiving meal for the two of us and we hosted friends later that evening for dessert and drinks. It was a perfect day.
It was a simple, but wonderful week. It am grateful for all the people in my life both near and far. If anyone lives in a warmer climate and is looking for some company this winter, hit me up!
