A Fun-Filled Weekend

Presenting A List of Things I Did This Weekend That Were Fun:

Went to a Civil War swap meet. I didn’t buy anything. In fact, I didn’t even shop the room. I did, however, sit with my good friend Wendy. I knit, Dale shopped. It was fun.


Went to visit The USS John F. Kennedy. We didn’t get on board because the lines were so long we figured we’d wait forever and get turned away because by then it would be too late. But we did get to admire it from a distance.

Went to Fanueil Hall and had Guinness at Ned Divine’s Pub. While there we met up with Julie and her husband, Chris. I had met Julie at SPA but we didn’t get much of a chance to visit. So, when I heard that they were coming to Boston for the weekend I asked her if she’d like to get together. And we did. We chatted and drank good beer and got to know each other better.

Went to Limoncello’s for dinner. Julie and Chris had suggested this spot and the four of us had a wonderful meal. And more chatting and getting to know each other better. Julie and Chris are good people. If they come to your town, you should visit with them.

As for the rest of my weekend, I simply went to my couch. I sat and watched TV and knit on the Seraphim Shawl.

It really was a fun-filled weekend.

  1. That’s a wonderful picture of the Kennedy. B served on the Kennedy in the 80s, and was going to take the kids down there this weekend, but having learned his lesson after encountering the crowds the last time the ship was in Boston, gave it up as a lost cause. It’s too bad, really … I wish they’d had some way for former crew members to avoid the line.

  2. It is always fun filled when you get to knit with other knitters, and have beer and dinner with them, too. I’m shocked there are no pictures of knitting in this post! Where’s Seraphim!?

  3. Limoncello is great, I agree! But we haven’t been there in a while…going to have to rethink that and put it back on my list!

  4. I had a chance to visit the USS Kennedy with my school when I was 10- it was docked just outside the port of Thessaloniki, Greece where I grew up. The USS Kennedy spent quite a bit of time in the Mediterranean in the late ’60’s and into the 70’s.

  5. Great weekend! I’m not going to bombard you with comments, but I am catching up…I TOTALLY agree with your Top 10, love the shawl…Koigu is so beautiful!!

  6. sorry you couldn’t get on the boat, I mean, SHIP. (GRIN… I need to post about why I said that sometime!) Limoncello’s sounds great. I need to come up to Boston soon. I miss working Downtown!!

  7. How completely pleasant. 🙂

    Good food, good company, good knitting. Fun to attend the Civil War swap and get to knit. Ahhh.

  8. Sounds just wonderful. I’ll have to check out Limoncello next time I’m in Boston. Is is a must-have-reservations place?

  9. Lovely! You are probably aware that our Guiness holiday is rapidly approaching… time to dig out the “kiss me, I’m Irish” buttons.

  10. Hahahaa!! As I am sitting here getting caught back up on blogland, guess what I am sipping on? Limoncello….haha!

    It sounds like your weekend was fun!

  11. What a great weekend. I wish I could claim we did anything at all remarkable. Bill and I are now at the age where a good weekend nap sounds exciting. Oh, so old. Is there anything that isn’t more fun with a pint of Guinness? We have dear friend in Dublin who does some consulting work for the company. So, we’ve adopted them as one of our fav. import (especially Harp.)
