Sorry for the lack of updates recently. After work, neither of us have had much energy to get on the computer. Maybe it’s because it’s dark and still cold outside. Erica just wants to sit on the couch and watch TV. We’ve been watching Auction Hunters, Pawn Stars, Pickers, and other shows where they go through old stuff and sell it.
Since the last update, we’ve tried a new Mex-Tex restaurant called Border Cafe near Harvard Square. This is a place that we’ll definitely take visitors to.
Erica joined the Y on Saturday!
Also on Saturday, we went took the bus to Newbury Street. It’s 8 blocks of shops and restaurants in buildings that were originally part of a prestigious neighborhood in the late 1800’s.
There was a mix of the types of stores ranging from a Best Buy on one end to a Nike store, little boutiques, Puma, Ed Hardy, Ted Baker. There were also lots of salons and other beauty services. Restaurants and cafes ranged from French, Italian, pubs, and a Starbucks.
Erica got a Valentine’s day present there, more on that later!
We took the bus back to Cambridge, got off at a stop near the grocery store, went shopping, and hopped back on the bus with 5 bags of groceries.
On Sunday, Erica ventured down to the laundry mat and learned how to use the washers and dryers. We also went to an Indian restaurant for their lunch buffet.
