Weekends


My weekend was full of traveling to Portsmouth, New Hampshire!  Yep.  That was the spot that we picked for our 25th wedding anniversary trip.  Why did we pick it?  Well, when the kids were little (8 and 5 yrs old) we were traveling north to visit his brother who lived in New Brunswick.  We stopped in Portsmouth but I cannot remember why.  I only remember being very angry with one of the kids (probably hungry and tired) and thinking someday, I would love to explore this little town.  So let's forget how many years it took to get there.  We were there and it was so much fun!

I have more photos to share and of course there was a yarn shop exploration.  And, my husband was lucky to have TWO vinyl record used CD stores to shop.

On our way up we listened to primarily The Talking Heads channel on Pandora which is by far the best channel yet.  Did you know that whatever channel we pick, if you listen long enough a Beatles song will appear.  Really.  Also on the Talking Heads channel they played Johnny Cash......hmmm.  Okay.

We are overstuffed with eating out and we missed Frodo.  This week will be a major detox of fatty foods, getting old is not fun.  I was unplugged from social media for the whole trip and I really liked it.  We talked to the kids daily and that was the extent of our tethering to the outside world.



How was your weekend?

  5. Oh, don't you just love Portsmouth? I lived in NH for several years & I have no idea why I left, really. I loved it so much…

    Did you happen to go into The Friendly Toast? It is hands down one of my favorite places to eat in the whole world. xo

  7. Happy 25 Karen. Your trip looks so beautiful, I have never been to New England, but hopefully one day.
    Yes, this getting old is the pits and I am finding the older I get what I put in my mouth really effects how I feel. I hope your week is a great one.
