Google Art Project
Google's latest offering, Art Project, allows you to virtually explore various museums across the world, letting you view the galleries in the museums and zoom into the artwork itself. Such an innovative way to make more accessible! [Warning: It is very easy to get lost in the art and completely lose track of time. Don't say I didn't warn you!]

Lazy Sunday Afternoons
I always look to my weekends as a time to relax, have fun, and feel refreshed, but I'm sometimes I end up feeling more exhausted come Monday morning than I did before my weekend began. Yesterday, I had the most perfectly lazy Sunday afternoon. I didn't really do too much of anything, but I did manage to talk a wonderful little walk and enjoy the sunshine.
As I mentioned here and here, Boston has been getting a lot of snow this season. For about the last week, the snow has been intermittently mixed with rain, resulting in a pervasive mucky slush. My rain boots allow me to wade triumphantly through these icy puddles while less well-prepared pedestrians are left hesitating on the sidewalk. I have never been quite so grateful to own such dependable wellies.
