A Connecticut Story

While looking for homes in Connecticut, the Pres and I stayed with our best friends.  Using their home as a base, it enabled us to look in areas in the Northeast Corner of the state, which is where we are hoping to move.

When the Pres left to return to Virginia, I remained and was able to "venture out" one day with my girl friend.  Removing her trusty GPS from the cluttered back seat and handing it to me to plug in , she reaffirmed what I had thought all the years I've known her.  "I'm not mechanically inclined...you figure it out," she said.

So that day we drove around trying to locate a few places on our own as well as discovering a few new ones to add to "the list."  Then, before you knew it we were up near the Massachusetts border and went here for lunch.  She loves lunch!  She loves doing lunch, going to lunch, eating lunch...everything there is about lunch.


Although it might seem ordinary to you, it wasn't.  After you've finished eating, you not only get to browse through their shelves of books, you get to take one home!  I selected one on organic gardening as a gift fro her husband.  He planted his first raised bed vegetable garden this year and was so tickled that everything was growing.  In fact, he offered us the ONE strawberry dangling from one of his plants...:)  Now, that's what friends are for!!

What a neat surprise! Sounds like a fun road trip with your friend. :)

any bites on selling your place? have you heard from the UK people? sounds like a great place for lunch and the name was appropriate since you were traveling.

Doing lunch with a friend is such a civilized way of enjoying one's day -- not lunch because you have to get back to work but lunch because you've made it a special moment with a friend. Your friend, btw, sounds just like my mother, who was stunned to discover that there was a bottle opener at the other end of the can opener she had been using for more than fifteen years! Have a great day and I hope you're able to find a buyer, soon.

food and a free book, cool! nice concept...and about the raised garden...since my 'spring/summer' veggie garden was a FLOP this year...i've decided to do a 'raised' winter garden.
so, how was the food?

Great to have a friend up there where you are going to move - that loves going out to lunch!

First, thank you for your caring comments on my brittle bones post. Then, I will miss your hollow a lot. It is so pretty. I hope you will find the right place for you in Conn. Will you continue to blog from there?

What a neat place to do lunch!

Now that is cool, you eat and then you get to pick out a book! I am not much of one to eat out, but if all eateries did that I might be tempted more often! :O)...Books are just one of my favorite things!

Have a Great Day!
