Whiskey socks

Has it really been 10 days since my last post??  Yowza.

I've been a bit under the weather this last week and suffering through a terrible cough.  After drinking cup after cup of hot tea, consuming half a honey bear, many teaspoons full of Wal-tussin (hey, it's SO much cheaper), and 2,000 (or so) Halls lozenges to no avail, my cough seemingly was finally cured last night by...a shot of whiskey. With some honey in it, ofcourse.  Maybe it was a coincidence, maybe it was good timing, but all I know is whiskey might be my go-to cough syrup from now on.  This newfound cure also makes me wonder if my aunt was really onto something putting whiskey soaked socks on my feet when I had a fever as a kid.  Ahhh, whiskey socks.

Since I haven't been doing too much lately, I will share some photos from a recent trip to one of my favorite parts of Boston, the North End.  There was pizza.  It was delicious.


  1. we walked through this area when in boston for our honeymoon...since we live in an italian neighborhood in the midwest, we were curious how they compared...the north end is much more vertical and many more shops...how I wish we had a shop just for handmade pasta in walking distance. we ate dinner in a wonderful cozy restaurant and I had the special of butternut squash ravioli. mmm.

    Glad to hear your cough is gone...I just got ride of a 2 week sinus thing...not sure what it was, but mucinex and my sinus rinse helped that.

  2. boston!? wow! i'm dying to visit that part of the east coast. it's a must after looking at those pics. so much history!

  3. Both of you must make a return visit!
    Boston would love to have you back :)

  4. What beautiful pictures. Such a refreshing way to see town.


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from each and everyone of you :)
