*boston* & relaxation

20 April 2011

I am gently making my way through this week, attending medical appointments, some quiet time with a couple of friends, resting and nesting. It is important for me to acknowledge when these times are needed as it is also an acceptance of my limitations and a celebration of all that I achieve over my challenges. My husband is a wonderful support too and reminds me that there is no shame in slowing down to nurture oneself. So, perhaps it will be take away for dinner tonight. And that is ok.

Also a little looking back today as I continue to post images from our lovely long USA/Canada holiday last year. Today, we’re in Boston, MA. We departed our now beloved New York and headed to Boston for a lovely couple of days with friends and their cute puppy. One of my vivid memories is of sitting on their front steps in the late afternoon, the sun filtering through the deeply hued greenery, brushing the happy puppy’s coat as our hosts said hello to neighbours passing by on foot and bicycle. It really is the little moments as well as the big ones that make a holiday so memorable and precious.

I hope you are having a great week and taking it easy when need be.

    I’m glad you are accepting that you sometimes need to slow down. I am definitely at that point. Very tired and emotional and ready for a long Easter weekend! have a lovely Easter.
    Oh and Boston is one of my favourite US cities too.

    Have a great week there. Boston looks so different from the west coast.

    So beautifully expressed, “I am gently making my way through this week…” and it so resonated with me, having weeks like yours that belong to medical appointments. I’m glad you are nurturing yourself … it is so essential that we do this.

    Such evocative photos of Boston and how wonderful to have them all to look back on. I’ve only been through Boston once and didn’t get to explore too much.

    Thank you so much for your comments on the Savannah posts. The travel guides are pretty good and informative. I can’t really recommend Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I read it before my trip and it honestly didn’t make me want to visit. It was interesting to see some of the locations that are mentioned in the book but otherwise it didn’t capture the feeling of the city for me. It was a bit too on the seamy side for me. :)

    And thank you for the birthday wishes for David! I’m taking him away for the weekend to a secret location.

    Happy Easter and hope you have a gentle and fulfilling week. – g
