I am back from New England; glad I went and happy to be home. Although….. I wouldn’t have minded spending the day in Boston today. After a week of cold, wet, stormy weather, today dawned sunny and mild. By the time I left, it was a lovely day in the 60’s. Children scurried around searching for Easter eggs in the “old burying grounds” outside the church in Harvard Square, and it seemed as if the entire population had put on shorts and flip-flops. Me, I was wearing my calf-high, quilt-lined puddle boots. All week, they had served me just fine. Now they were too much, but too large for my suitcase, so I had to wear them.
I spent a day in Cape Cod wearing everything I owned, and then some. (This photo is of Aunt Diane; just to give you the idea that it was April 20th and felt like February. )
More about all of that later. But at the end of that very cold day, there was leftover matzoh ball soup. And that was just what we needed!
