Boston won the Stanley Cup! I’m both delighted and surprised! It was quite a game yesterday. Winning something this big in someone else’s building is always bizarre.

I have my debut over on The Writers Vineyard talking about introductions, and then I’m also over on The Book Connection with talking about inspiration everywhere. Visit both and say hi!

Yesterday morning, I got a lot of my work done and spent time with students. Had a good session on THE SPIRIT REPOSITORY, did work for the Mermaid Ball, etc.

Costume Imp and I hit the road at 11. We drove out to Tobey Farm in Dennis to look around, stopped at Parnassus Books, and had lunch at The Optimist Cafe in Yarmouth, where both the atmosphere and the food are great. Then, it was back to Hyannis to the farmers’ market, Trader Joe’s, the liquor store, the the other grocery store.

I went back to work, doing some more stuff on Confidential Job #1, and Costume Imp cooked — pizza with pasta salad. He’s a fabulous cook, so it was great.

Watched hockey at night, celebrated the victory. Up early this morning – and Imp was up early, too (not my fault, swear)! I got my daily quota done on SPIRIT REPOSITORY, and then, in a little while, we’re headed east. We’re supposed to have a good day today, weather-wise, and I’m hoping there won’t be too much traffic/too many tourists.

I’ll have a lot to do when I get back (like mow, finish the work for Confidential Job #1, spend time with my students, work on articles). But I’ve also got to take advantage of the weather!

  1. Congratulations on a fantastic win! I will admit to wishing Vancouver would win because I like Vancouver residents (very polite and friendly people), and they haven’t ever won (love the underdogs in general), but Boston earned that cup the hard way. Their offense was just stronger, though I will say both defenses were impressive.

  2. Ha ha ha – I’m glad you didn’t force Imp to get up early! 😀 How lovely having a man to cook for you while you work. That sounds like the perfect scenario. Hope the weather holds and that you have another nice day out.

  3. It’s dislocating being 2,300 miles from my hometown when stuff like this happens, but holy cow did I enjoy last night! I was not-quite-five the last time they won it, but this morning I feel like a kid at Christmas. My cheeks hurt from smiling and my voice is still hoarse from yelling.

    • Isn’t it a great feeling, Jake? Congratulations. 🙂

  4. Hope y’all have a fun (and safe) day!

  5. Congrats Boston! 🙂
