Two's-Day on Thursday

Last week, T had an appointment in West Roxbury, so I decided to tag along and we had a short Two's-Day.  You see, when we first moved to Boston, 2 1/2 years ago (!), we stayed in a friend's house in West Roxbury for three weeks, waiting for our condo to close.  I didn't think it would be a trip down memory lane as we drove out that way this Thursday, but it's sometimes funny how memories crop up.

We hadn't had any lunch yet, so we stopped at a grocery store and got some food.  Of course, it was the same grocery store we used to visit during those first three weeks in Boston (when I was still looking for a job and we were still trying not to get lost on the crazy MA streets...).  While T went to his appointment, I wandered around the store, doing the week's grocery shopping. It was nice to have it all done so quickly.

The house where we stayed was, in fact, empty of our friends.  They had moved out, and were (very!) kind to let us stay there while they waited for an interested buyer.  So we really were rambling around on our own.  We had our little rattlebang car, and loads of free time to wile away.  The weather those weeks was warm and mild (though we did have an air conditioner in our room, which was very nice on the warmer nights), and we were able to meet many wonderful people, even before T's classes started.

It was good to re-visit that area, catching glimpses of sweet memories together.  It's been a long time since we moved here, and in many ways, it feels like we've been here forever.  But, in other ways, it seems like we are still just little kids, newly married, wandering around a strange new city, holding hands.


A few weeks ago we rearranged our bedroom, to make room for a small seating area.  We weren't sure precisely how we wanted things arranged, so we didn't plan a specific item for the area, but now that the bedroom is the way we want it, we have begun the search for a small something. We went to CafeNation to get a cuppa joe :) and visited the very eclectic furniture shop next door.  Boston has been for us a great place for gathering ideas.  Sure, we don't have the space (or funds or need) for a lot of the awesome things we've found, but we're filing them away for future use.  Perhaps you'll hear about some of them someday :)

All in all, a great Two's-Day with my love (even though we didn't find a bitty couch for our bedroom).
