Can’t get much fresher

One of the newly-found benefits of working downtown is the Tuesday/Thursday summer farmer’s market that I basically walk right through on my way to the train in the evening. Tonight I picked up some arugula and basil to enhance my dinner.

Farewell, Quincy

Today was my last day at my desk of the last seven or so years. I will miss the view — both from my desk (of downtown Quincy Center) and from our big conference room (of Boston Harbor and Hull). But our new office is in downtown Boston and I’m excited for the brand-new-construction office space (my first in 25 years), for the bustling, happening location (downtown Boston, estimated 400 restaurants within a 1 mile radius), and especially for the hour+ of commute time per day I will regain.

Haul

These are coasters I collected at yesterday’s beer fest. Now I can go through the house and discard warped and stained coasters from years past. And to certain of my friends I will note: not a one of these wound up in my jacket lining.

Some friends and I went to the Microbrew Invitational beer fest, which focuses on smaller producers. One booth had hand-written signs! No great beer discoveries this year, but it was a good time.

Lanterns

I bought some mason jar lanterns, solar-rechargeable, LED strings inside. Pretty cool. Mason jars not actually included just means I could use up some random empty pickle/salsa jars from the pantry.
