“Who ever thought we’d be watching Anne of Green Gables and drinking martinis?” Hope asks. And on the first snowy day at Boston-city, too. Happy time-changing day!

I visited the MFA today, especially to see the Ansel Adams exhibit – “Black and White.” It was magnificent. The snow was falling outside and I started to cry, deeply moved. One must realize that I am at a point in my life where everything is deeply moving unto tears. I recently teared up during an OSHA video at work orientation. Pathetic, eh?

Last night, we ate with our male neighbors below. Ryan seems a tad halfhearted, but he has a serious girlfriend and is a special ed teacher.
