Just a quick one


It’s been such a lovely weekend, but it’s late, and I’m tired, so I’ll keep this short.

I started my day out slowly, reading the New York Times online while eating cereal in bed.


(Trader Joe’s High Fiber Cereal with milk and blackberries.)

After breakfast I went to Mass, and then ran to the gym where I did sprint intervals on the treadmill, rowed a bit, and then biked. Despite how that sounds, I’m really quite out of shape, but it felt good to get sweaty at least, and the gym was lovely and empty because it’s intersession.

I was starving after my workout, so I came home and looked into the fridge, but nothing appealed. What I really wanted was a hamburger, and so as a special treat I went out to the Charles Village Pub and got one. I had never been there before, so I didn’t know burgers don’t come with fries, which was slightly disappointing, but I enjoyed the heck out of my burger.


I ordered the smallest size (they come in 5, 8, and 13 oz), and it was just right. I was actually slightly too full, since I also had a beer, but it was a very nice lunch/dinner. The Ravens were playing, so the restaurant was packed with football fans, and it was fun to watch a bit of the game. I don’t care about football, but I do enjoy being around people who are having fun, and the Ravens played well, so the atmosphere was happy and excited.

Full up with burger and beer, I came home and had a long nap while listening to This American Life. When I woke up, I did some homework until the Facebook posts about Downton Abbey compelled me to watch it myself, and that brings me up to date. Now I’m off to bed, after having a very, very pleasant weekend.

  1. We watched Downton Abbey and loved every minute of it. Can’t remember watching a tv show for 2 hours that just flew by as this did. I know it’s just a soap opera really, but they are such interesting characters and the acting is just superb. I do think Lady Mary has married a prig, don’t you?
    Shirley Maclain was absolutely perfect in her part but it was sad to see how old she’s grown. Hmmm. She’s exactly my age. Hmmm!

    • Oh I don’t know, I’m not sure Mary deserves Matthew. He is a prig, and the money issue is maddening, but she’s kind of awful, especially to her sister Edith. The acting is superb, and the costumes and sets are very beautiful- I just love the whole thing.
