Fall Fun

It has been a long, lovely fall here in Boston! The leaves turned beautiful colors, and not a day passed when we didn’t walk outside and marvel at the changing of the seasons. It’s just something you don’t get in Louisiana, not like this. It’s nearly December and the weather still isn’t very cold.

We’ve tried to get out and enjoy Boston as much as possible in the lovely weather, and though school keeps us both pretty busy, we’ve made time for some fun things. One Sunday we went to the SoWa (South of Washington St.) open market and the South End Buttery cafe. The market was fun, with a lot of really interesting (but expensive) crafts and a great antiques section inside a big, gorgeous old building. We had fun wandering around and perusing it all. And the South End Buttery is a great cafe!

One Saturday we drove out to Ipswich to go apple picking at Russell Orchards. This was the perfect, quintessential New England fall day. First we enjoyed hot cider and cider donuts while we watched families pick out their Halloween pumpkins. Then we took a hayride to the apple orchard, where we filled our bag to the brim with apples off the trees. We drove to Gloucester to try some of Woodman’s famous fried clams, which we ate on the chilly beach. For dinner that night we made butternut squash soup and apple pie–yum!

On Halloween we went down to Faneuil Hall for “Howlloween,” the annual dog costume contest. It was, need we even say, unbearably adorable. You can see the pictures for yourself. There were some really creative entries, including the three winners: one dog dressed as the U.S.S. Nimitz, chicken “poodle” soup, and “shark attack,” a combination of costumes which we didn’t quite get, but as there was a three-legged dog involved it was hard not to root for them. Public transportation is a kick on Halloween. As we took the T to a party that night, everyone inside was in costume, looking quite out of place.

And finally, we made two trips to New York this semester. In October, we went to the annual conference held for winners of the Soros Fellowship, which was ridiculously nice. They put us up in the very unique Hudson Hotel and basically wined and dined us for three days! And last weekend, we went to Irvington to see Tommy’s relatives there, along with his Dad who flew up for the weekend. It was relaxing and fun, and really great to see everyone.¬†Unfortunately we didn’t really take photos of either, except the requisite skyline and central park shots that everyone has seen a million times. Sorry!

Tonight we leave for Montreal! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Subscribers would be the second step I wanna speak about. People consider the right way to get youtube views as well as the right off the bat that comes in their scalp is subscribers. They think if perhaps they’ve already considerably more subscribers then theyll get a great deal more views. This is certainly false. I am going to clarify why. Subscribers are solely good any time you first submit the video. For the reason that they will obtain the video and set up feedback upon it. Then, this will likely ensure you get while in the most discussed listing people these days should come and watch by leaving comments. It is enable you to get more views however it is only as you’re have been on an inventory not because of your video. Subscribers are great to obtain but not as necessary as individuals think.
