Wolf moon

Sunday my daughter, Hannah, and I went to Boston symphony hall to see A New Year’s salute to Vienna. It was absolutely wonderful. I hadn’t been to Symphony Hall in about 6 or 7 years and I forgot how much I love it.

Tuesday was my daughter, Bonnie’s birthday. I went up to see her last week. I brought things to make dinner and a cake and she went out to do some shopping while I watched the children and made dinner. I’m not sure who got the better end of that deal.

Two nights in a row my husband got home before I did and made dinner for us! We had fish one night and chicken the next! What a treat to come home to a set table and a delicious aroma.

I’ve been trying to fit a walk into my daily schedule. It’s difficult because it’s so dark and cold. I did get out a few mornings this week before work and the harbour is beautiful…even if it is really chilly!

Joe and I often go out for a date night on Fridays. We don’t go far..we walk around the corner to the Barnacle restaurant and get some fish and stare at the harbour. We decided to go last night as we will be busy tonight and as we came down the part of the narrow lane that opens up to the harbour there was a big round full moon shining down and reflecting off of the water. It was so pretty. I wish I had taken a photo but it was about 20 degrees and I was too cold to stop walking!

  1. Great list of blessings! Happy birthday to your daughter.

    LOVE symphony hall!! Great way to start the new year. 😀

    I do my walks right after work and I’ve had to wear a hat even though the daytime temps have been mild the wind has been COLD!!

    Have a restful weekend!

  2. Your last picture is so gorgeous! It is to be rainy here all weekend, so I will likely not be able to snap the moon. What a fun and thoughtful thing to do for Bonnie’s birthday! Having daughters is such a blessing.

  3. I haven’t been to a symphony in years. What fun! How nice to come home to dinner being made! That was a nice arrangement for your daughter’s birthday. I’m sure she appreciated time to go out alone plus dinner and cake. What a beautiful picture. Your dinner date sounds ideal–great to be able to look out over the harbor.

  4. A husband willing to cook is a treasure indeed!

    Your daughter is gorgeous – and so is your photo of the water.

  5. Having a home cooked dinner — cooked by someone else — is a treat indeed. My husband’s repertoire is very limited, but I don’t mind soup and sandwiches if someone else is cooking. Happy birthday to your lovely daughter!

  6. Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter. What a sweet thing you did for her. And how nice that your hubby cooked dinner for you too! Mine doesn’t cook but he does the pots and pans!

  7. The Wolf Moon was beautiful, wasn’t it? We watched it rise over the mountains to the east of us.
    Happy Birthday to your girl!
    My hubby is a cook, too. I consider that a huge blessing!
    Have a happy week and I hope you get in a nice walk or two.
