My mother silverlibre
has been in town visiting for a bit over a week, and it’s been wonderful! Lots of wonderful home-cooked meals (mostly due to her, although we all collaborated on the Thanksgiving dinner, and plumtreeblossom
’s Thanksgiving turkey was wonderful, and lots of wonderful things to do and see and talk about. I don’t have time to do it justice, but here are a few of the highlights:
in Mister Roberts
at the Concord Players. (We didn’t much like the play itself — meaning the script —, but the acting was great, and the sets were truly impressive, and I’d love to see some more of their productions.)
Thanksgiving dinner was epic. plumtreeblossom
and I had a fabulous time preparing food, and then we had a couple guests over and ate it. Thanks to our guests (who brought some yummy pickle and roasted sweet potatoes and pie for the feast).
We had a lovely time out playing board games with friends on Friday. Need to do more than that. A highlight of that was seeing tamoroso
; much to my surprise, it turned out that he and my mother had never met, and he’s really good people.
Today, we went to the Museum of Science, and had a blast. The Mammoths and Mastodons exhibit they have up at the moment is definitely worth seeing; we learned a lot. And we saw a nifty film about caving for extremophiles in the Omni theater. Before it they showed an interesting little propaganda film about how wonderful New England is, which was a bit strange but kind of fun — regional chauvinism for the win.
After that, we went to the Union Oyster House
, which plumtreeblossom
had been to before but I (and silverlibre
) hadn’t. The food was very good; definitely worth the price. Made me want to eat more fish.
We still have time with surrealestate
and DD and Tadpole to look forward to, and dinner with cathijosephine
(who’s been on a road trip to New Orleans for the last couple weeks, but fortunately will be overlapping with silverlibre
for a couple days).
Life is feeling pretty good lately.
