A Very Local Labor Day, Just Enjoying the Neighborhood: Boston's Roslindale, Jamaica Plain (Forest Hills), and Hyde Park
For Labor Day weekend, I had no plans and no agenda. I stayed home and loafed and enjoyed the neighborhood. It was so delightful!

in Hyde Park, Boston's Stony Brook Reservation
Every time I take a picture of Turtle Pond I always make the same kind of "isn't city life just the pits" kind of joke. But, can you believe this is Boston? Because it really is. Thanks, Frederick Law Olmsted!
|There is a Rose in Spanish Roslindale|
I saw this as I was walking to Eugene O'Neill's Pub at Forest Hills. People have some pretty cute little city gardens in the neighborhood (including moi, of course!)
|I don't mean to be cocky, but I live in a great area|
Still haven't gotten a sandwich at Tostado's though!
Why hello there, Giant Metal Rooster. This Big Cock is right on the border of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale at the sandwich shop, Tostado.

I posted this to the Facebook group "Keep Roslindale Quirky" and it has over a 125 likes now! This was just from the living room window. I took a nice walk up to Peters Hill on Sunday evening. It was as beautiful as ever.
|Rimz! Serious, serious rims.|
Talk about quirky! These are some SERIOUS rims. Spotted along the way back home from the pub on Monday night.

Taking selfies like a style blogger ought
Ah the luxury of a leisurely afternoon: my eyebrows are so even and bangs are so poufy. Plus I wore those pretty earring my extra-mum Cindy gave me a while back. This was me, walking down the road to Eugene O'Neill's, the pub where I have serious writing, edit and revising mojo. I think because it is imbued with the spirit of its namesake, his final resting place being but .25 miles away.
