We had tentative plans to go to visit JoAnne & take Josh out for his birthday this past weekend until we heard we were getting hit with a snow storm on Thurs night into Fri. Our area didn't get hit that bad but Boston really got nailed again...18 inches! We waited until Fri night & checked with Jo to make sure driving wouldn't be a problem.
It was all systems go so we left around 9:00am & of course our back seat passenger had to keep checking out the window to make sure we were going the right way.
I love this stone church that we pass by in Waltham.
We used out On-Star when we got close as they usually do a good job of turn by turn directions & avoid any traffic. I have to digress here & say how much we love this thing & how it has saved our marriage......a number of times!!! As I was ending my call with the magic "mirror, mirror on the the wall"(that's what I call it) I mentioned to Popster that I didn't remember renewing our membership for it. Well obviously I didn't because I went back to my knitting instead of doing my normal duty of co-pilot & the next thing I know we are in some back alley somewhere! Yup Wilma had screwed up & sent us to Central Ave instead of Central Street....dang that's what happens when you freeload!
This is the park near JoAnne's where we normally walk Molly. All you could hear were bucket loaders & big dump trucks trying to remove snow.......they still hadn't gotten rid of the 30 inches they had 2 weeks ago.
This was a giant dragon the people next door had built....unfortunately they built him in the sun so at this point he was keeling over!
Josh had to be at work at 5:00 so we took him out for a late lunch instead of dinner & after he left we made our way down to the bike path by the Charles river.
It was very snowy & hard walking............
.......but Molly got to do what she loves............
I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic. Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play. I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way. One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car". I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.
I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.
About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty! My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming
They are still working on my house
I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house "Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
