On Thursdays, I work at home. Most weeks, I stay “Boston-side,” instead of making the trek over to Cambridge, where I work the other four days.  This means, I take my laptop over to the Boston Public Library or, if I really don’t feel like leaving the neighborhood, to sit (somewhat guiltily) for hours at Ula Cafe.

Today was hot, hot, hot, but everyone seemed to be out-of-doors, regardless. My pilgrimage to and fro led me to some gorgeous sights.

Some of us obviously love the heat.
