Oh A Few Days Off

Oh life is good when you have a few days off with not much planned. That is what I am thankful for right at this very moment. But in the big scheme of life I have so many good things going for me  and for that, I am grateful. But not to bore you with a list, I won't go on. Instead I am going to be shallow and bask in the knowledge of a long weekend ahead.  Hee-hee.
Here's last week's Thankful page in my calendar journal. It's mostly some paper layering and this fun foamy turkey sticker I had.
I have a few other Boston photos to share with you today also. No specific theme today.
These photos below are of  the Holocaust Memorial.

It's a moving path to walk through. Along the path are some stories. You can see a snippet here. The whole story is about how the people of Denmark helped ferry people across to Sweden.
And moving on to some cool shadows casts by street posts.
And the city was assembling their skating rink and putting up their holiday decorations.
And then there's the old city hall which is quite imposing Victorian structure.

And some city views. The brick stripe down the sidewalk in the photo below is how you follow the Freedom Trail.

Happy Wednesday everyone.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

FUn Thanksgiving pages Erika! Enjoy your free days my friend!!!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Thank you for the fabulous photos of Boston - I think I like Boston - it seems to be a nice city!!!But too expensive for me I guess-

Rent Prices in Vienna are 57.07% lower than in Boston.

Local Purchasing Power in Vienna is 20.64% lower than in Boston.
