Lazy holiday

There's something to be said for long weekends, especially when you can spend them with your sweetie. The wife and I took advantage of this one to mark Valentine's Day. To make up for the celebration coming so late, we took a little getaway to Concord -- far enough so that we felt we were on vacation, close enough that it didn't take hours and hours to get there. Overall, we liked the B&B we stayed at, the Hawthorne Inn, particularly the helpfulness of the hosts, the interesting art collection and the cute kitty we got to cuddle with. The weekend also included:

-- good food (nice lamb kebab at the Walden Grill, homemade muffins at the B&B)
-- a *very* quick sojourn to the Old North Bridge, cut short by the cold
-- a longer visit to the Concord Library, where my wife and a co-worker got some children's books and I got an Internet fix
-- lots of reading and relaxing

We were still in vacation mode when we got home yesterday -- at least, until we realized we had a sinkful of dirty dishes and two loads of laundry to deal with. Where's Bunter when you need him? *sigh*
