As much as I can’t stand the word staycation, I’m really glad that I used my spring break to spend time at home with my family. It’s been a wonderfully relaxing week and I got a chance to do a lot of things I’ve been meaning to. Here are some (iPhone) pictures of what I did this week…
This past weekend marked the end of another successful ski season. We went up intending to stay and ski a few days but within two hours we changed our minds. The weather was gorgeous (we were sweating wearing our light ski coats) and the mountain wasn’t crowded, but the snow was so heavy that our legs were spent within two hours of hitting the slopes. What a good year though- I think we got in 10-11 days total, which is great considering the mild winter we had.
The day after skiing, we went to the Boston Science Museum! I haven’t been there in quite a while and I was happy to see some of the same exhibits (the lightening exhibit with the large van de graaff generators, for example) and some interesting new ones. I think my favorite was the exhibit on renewable energy sources- it’s already got me brainstorming for the time when I’ll have a house that I can put solar panels on!
Like I posted about earlier, Piper has newly been diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I’m happy I had the week off to take her to her vet, Anchor Animal Hospital in Dartmouth, MA. They are truly wonderful- all the staff and doctors are friendly, smart and really love the animals that come in. I also think it’s great they bring their own pets to work- this is one of the younger vet’s dog who sits in the receptionist area. Isn’t he gorgeous?
