I will be busy today with a dog walk, some volunteer stuff for the high school and a Blogger Lunch at Common Ground. It will be nice to meet people that I have connected with on twitter in real life.
Here is a link to the Boston Globe – great list of goings on including our own Newton Open Studios this weekend.
Here are some pics of the goodie bags for the lunch at Common Ground – little basil plants and Lindt chocolate truffles – yes, I wrapped them from something I saw on Pinterest. Not anywhere nearly as cute as theirs but I tried! I also posted this from my iPad – pics and all and learned that I need to NOT put in photo in the original size
I do love the newspaper – maybe because my grandfather worked for one – the physical paper and I read some on-line, too. Here are a few finds from today and yesterday’s Boston Globe. Yes, I know it is nice of me to pre-read the paper for you. I have to go get ready for a family portrait and my parent’s 50th anniversary lunch. Congrats Mom and Dad!
