Good morning everyone. Sub-zero temperatures have continued this past week but the sun‚Äôs warmth can be felt coming back. I noticed it sitting by the window and seeing how quickly the temperature jumped back up into the teens yesterday. Ice covered the entire inner harbor yesterday but it won‚Äôt last long. This week we celebrated Mary birthdays and I mean both Marys. Friday was world famous cook Mary‚Äôs birthday and Wednesday was the anniversary of Mary Day‚Äôs launching in 1962, an equally bitter cold day with snow. Built of hardy New England stock Mary Day Hawkins was there to christen her namesake in a beautiful dress and heels.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
