Weekend in Boston

The weather this weekend was hot and sunny with temperatures in the low to mid-90s.  Normally I would have gone to Provincetown to escape the heat, but a good friend came to Boston to celebrate his 40th birthday (happy belated birthday Tom).   I think he had a fun time - we started the evening at my place with a champagne toast then walked down the street to Myers and Chang.  After dinner people came back for a nightcap and conversation.

Sunday turned out to be a lazy day with friends dropping by unexpectedly.  It was great to see everyone.  The combination of my air conditioned apartment, some delicious white wine and good conversation made the afternoon and evening pass quickly. I couldn't believe that it was a just past 10pm when I closed the door and waved good bye to everyone.  Perhaps for some people the random "drop-ins" would not be welcome, but it is something that I love about where I live.  I think it is great to have friends drop by unexpectedly.  I don't think I could have planned a more relaxing Sunday - even if I tried.

Sounds like a great evening - I love spending the day with friends too.

I did my yoga at 10: then we were so tired we just sat outside the yoga studio basking in the sun, then grabbed brunch and just had a great chat - quite a diverse group - Argentina. Canada, Serbia - quite a mix!
