A very nice start!

Sydney and I got to St. Bonaventure before 10 this morning and spent the day in the library.  I have to say, it’s nice to be in a library that’s not really crowded, as Cornell’s libraries seem to be (particularly this time of year).

After the library we checked in at a very, very cute B&B nearby and went out for dinner at an elegant restaurant that used to be a public library.  Sydney, who masterminded dinner and lodging, is doing his best to make sure I think of research trips in a positive light!

Both places, and, indeed, the entire downtown, are dressed up for Christmas, which I’ve really enjoyed.  I sat for ten minutes in front of the Christmas tree in the front parlor, just enjoying the loveliness.

Now it’s time for tea and relaxation before we return to the library tomorrow morning!

    Looks like you guys got out of town just in time to miss that storm! I can’t believe it snowed from Texas, through New Orleans, all the way up to Massachusetts, Vermont… and somehow, DC, yet again, gets nothing but buckets and buckets of rain. Ugh.

    Well, we did hear the snow plows go through town last night, and we woke up to a beautiful white snowfall. Our hostess seemed quite happy: she knows her house most like a winter wonderland when she has the snow to go with it!

    But no, we’ll be making our way slowly to Ohio tonight, and we will probably have good reason to be glad we aren’t in any hurry.

    Sorry you get the rain, Heid. I suppose your time in England was good training!
