I got to see Verne on Saturday afternoon!
He is growing so much and is so darn cute.
WHAT A GAME!!
Tuesday I got to see the parade go by Cambridge Street!
I watched the whole thing through the windows during my lunch break.
I was warm and dry and it was lots of fun!
Saturday morning I picked Joe up from the train station
and we took a little detour over to 40 steps to watch the sun come up
Thursday was a snow day here.
This is a picture from my desk window where I sat warm and dry
watching the storm raging…
snow falling sideways due to the wind.
Romans 2: 6, 10-11
He will render to each one according to his works;
but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good,
the Jew first and also the Greek.
For God shows no partiality.
This was in my reading yesterday morning.
I found it quite interesting in light of the current political upheaval.
I didn’t get a chance to see Verne this week but Bonnie sent me these
pictures of him playing peek-a-boo.
I love his facial expression when she is hiding….
and that smile!
The afternoon sunlight comes in through the living room windows.
Tucker likes to take a little cat-nap on the comfy chair.
All curled up in the warm winter light….me too.
Sadly, my daughter and I have schedules that rarely allow us to get together.
But, through the magic of instagram I am able to have a picture
of the day she visited with Verne.
Acorn street in Boston’s Beacon Hill area
is the most photographed street in Boston.
It’s only about a 5 minute walk from work so I often ramble over there
during my lunch hour. I love Beacon Hill!
Sadly, my co-teacher gave her two week notice yesterday.
I am going to miss her company so much!
She’s been one of my very favorite co-workers ever
and I am so fortunate that we had a chance to get to know one another.

I like salads and beans – Joe likes meat and potates
This means our eating schedules are a bit wonky.
We’ve been throwing away food at home and eating food out on the run.
This is a menu designed to fix that situation with a minimum of fuss.
Joe and I walked Tucker on the beach Sunday afternoon.
Surprisingly, he doesn’t mind being on the leash we got him.
He spent most of the time tucked inside Joe’s big jacket
but kept his head out so he could see what was going on.
When he got cold he would tuck his head down inside and under Joe’s neck.
games and the frisbee in the wooden trunk
at the foot of the bed.
There’s a baseball glove in there as well…..
soon enough we’ll be out of doors again.
And the effect of righteousness will be peace,
and the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever.
These are very dark times.
I am frightened for what is to come.
I am choosing carefully who I will walk beside.
Now is a time when we must work for righteousness
-true righteousness and love toward one another
There is enough darkness and hatred in this world
I cannot work toward righteousness without taking a stand against it.
walking dog beach
I did get a chance to visit with Verne this weekend!
He had just had a bath.
We had the boys Saturday and Sunday.
Joey had a game on Sunday and we dropped them off after that.
Here is a link to a story about Boston mayor Marty Walsh
We will not retreat one one inch he said,
stating we will fight for our residents, whether immigrant or not,
and provide the best quality of life for all Bostonians.
And, Here is another link from the Boston Police department’s fb page
thanking the marcher’s in the Woman’s march on Saturday. They said thank you to the
tens of thousands of marchers for their high levels of respect and responsible behavior.
Love that dirty water -Boston you’re my home.
Steel cut oats
With dried fruit, seeds, and nuts
On a lazy, rainy day.
