Joe and I went out to eat on Friday night. We had a spectacular view of the harbour.
I have to drive through downtown Salem, MA. on my way home from work…in October! The traffic is terrible, the people think they are in some kind of a freak-fair and they don’t even look before droves of them start crossing the streets all over the place, it takes 2 or 3 times as long to get home. The above picture is from a few weeks ago…it’s nowhere near that calm now. I have started going a back way around Salem that has twice as many miles but doesn’t take quite as long.
Sunday morning I woke early and went to the market. I’ve given up going to the large market in Salem. It’s so crazy and it takes forever. Since I am in class all day Saturday and at work Monday through Friday I have started going to the smaller market just around the corner. It’s more expensive but it’s almost always just Joe and I so the bill isn’t as high as it was when we had children in the house.
It’s so much nicer and less time consuming.
