And not a drop to drink? Not in the casa de Mini y PC... we are in Newton, in the midst of the "boil" zone. Good thing they have those signs on I-95 telling us so, too. Friday night, PC surprised Mini with an impromptu trip to NYC for a night of romance and urban delight. (Mini *hearts* NYC and can't wait to go back)
Saturday a.m. was: up early, breakfast at the Starlight Diner in Midtown and then off to Central Park via Times Square (straight up 7th avenue) until we walked straight into the Revlon Run/Walk for Breast Cancer. 40,000 people in Times Square + Hallie Berry. Yup, saw her. :)
Once we got to Central Park, we wandered and headed to the zoo... what cute zoo! The animals were out, like they were waiting for the kids to arrive. A quick trip to FAO Schwartz for a bday gift for a certain little person's party the next day and we were hailing a cab back to the hotel to check out. By 2pm, we were on the Cross Bronx Expressway (which was not express....it was a parking lot) and by 3pm, we were in Connecticut.
Dinner in Mystic, CT (RiverView, near Mystic Yarns, and yup... I got yarn. Photo tomorrow) and then off to the NE Revolution game in Foxboro MA at 7:30pm.
I made it to the 60th minute of the soccer game and just.couldn't.do.it. I was road-weary. And cranky. And wanted to go to bed.
We went home. :)
And on the way home, I saw "East of Weston, MWRA Boil Water Order."
At home, checked the internet...yup. That means Newton. *le sigh*
Water was boiled and cooled overnight and then poured into a large Brita filter. Sunday morning began w/ a trip to BJs in a non-water banned city, to get some bottled water. A trip to a bday party (fantastic!) and then home to an elaborate dishwashing set-up rounded out the evening.
