Finding comfort in routine.
My heart aches. It absolutely aches for what happened in my favorite city on my favorite holiday. My thoughts are with the injured and lost, and their families; the runners and spectators; all of the helpers; and the people of Boston. I am incredibely grateful that my family and friends who were in Boston today are safe.
Today, a group of lovely ladies and dapper gents outfitted in their finest tweeds and woolens came together to enjoy a civilized Spring ride through the scenic hamlets of Lowell, Tewksbury, Billerica, and Chelmsford.

After our ride, we stopped for a tasty repast at Ward Eight.
The entire afternoon was a jolly spot of bikey fun! Many thanks to the organizer, Sophan!
Attention readers! The annual Friends of the Pollard Memorial Library Book Sale will take place on May 16th – 18th! What does that mean for you? More books (and CDs and DVDs, too!)
The prices are great, and all proceeds from the sale benefit the Friends of the Library, a volunteer group dedicated to supporting Lowell’s awesome Pollard Memorial Library and its programs. The largest program they support is the museum pass program, which allows patrons to visit museums either for free or for drastically reduced admission.
If you aren’t already a Friend of the Library, you can learn more about becoming one here. As a Friend, you not only get to be a part of a great and friendly group of Lowellians, but you also receive membership benefits. Some of the benefits of being a Friend are that you get to attend the Friends Preview Night at the Book Sale *ahem, the very best selection of the sale, ahem* and you also get to participate in fun Friends events, FOR FREE, like Winterfest Trivia Night. Basically, you’d be a fool not to join (not that I’m judging or anything )
I hope to see you at the sale!
