Ben had the day off and bright and early in the morning was up and making chocolate chip pancakes for me...yum! Then after doing a few chores he whisked me away to the local Arboretum (where all the fancy trees live!) and we walked on wide paths and narrow paths and no paths whatsoever, all the while collecting fallen and forgotten twigs and sprigs of pine to make my holiday wreath for this year.
And look at all we collected! I think I could make two or three wreaths! There are some unusual species of conifers and hemlocks in there too.
And what's in here? Well I'll show you next week when we get back from visiting Ben's family in New Jersey and NYC. After the Arboretum we went to the Cambridge Antique Center. Four stories of old goodies. I found some great stuff! Stay tuned for that!
After a great movie (Harry Potter...I always love the houses with all of the funny knick knacks, the London and countryside scenery, and the interesting clothing) and a yummy dinner, I'm home and very happy. :)
