I taped this the other day because it was just such a serene atmosphere right in the middle of Boston. I seriously am in love with this city.

Baby geese!

interesting natural pattern! almost looks like camo

From the same garden as the picture above.  Very beautiful.

This is to show the gardens from far away.   

I walked over to see how the gardens are doing today.  I don't know much about them, but I think that people can rent space for their garden.  They can do whatever they want with this space, and some of them are absolutely gorgeous!!! Some were very simple, and some look like they took a very long time.

bright and new

Texting Marv

I like this guy! And I think it liked me.
I was surprised at how there was hardly anyone on this big grassy field! I'll come here more often, maybe.

I woke up this morning to so much green outside my window and I was thinking about how around two weeks ago, there was just the beginnings of leaf buds on this tree.  And now it's full of green! and then I wondered how wonderful it must feel for the tree to finally soak up all the sun with all its new, bright leaves!  Probably pretty good, I'd imagine :)

Picture of my window with said tree.

I rode my bike to my realtor's office today to sign my new lease.  I took my time on the way home, not wanting the ride to end. And when I was juuuust about home, I took a right on a path knowing I was heading to the pond instead.  I'm glad I did.  The flowering trees smelled like home... my parents have the same trees in their backyard.  I also saw one big and two little sunbathing turtles in the pond.  I went in for the picture and they plopped in the water... that made me feel bad :(  I shouldn't have gone lumbering towards them I guess.

After a beautiful day; I'm home, cuddling with a purring kitty and chatting with Brian.  I feel very lucky, happy.

Here's a fun video (for me... I know that watching other people's old cat videos may not be so fun for everyone) but this one made me really happy this morning!  I apologize for my weird pants...

A lot of things are working out today! It's exciting.. I have a job interview on Wednesday, I'm officially signing a lease for my new apartment on Monday, I have a bunch of fun big band gigs in the next 2 months... After feeling kind of icky the past couple days, I am starting to feel a lot less apprehensive about everything :)

cloudy day

Clouds moving in last night, today is cloudy and possibly rainy.  I can't complain, though.. it will still get over 60 degrees and stay around 62 all week.  I don't know if this is usual, but Boston has amazing spring weather compared to Iowa!

may flowers

The guy on the left rode that bike around and around and around.  I think he was showing it off :)

So many tulips all around the city!

snack break.

this stinkin ol fly kept trying to warm up on my sunny leg!
