Blogging from New Hampshire.
I’m sitting at a quaint coffee shop in New Hampshire using their internet with an everything bagel in hand and a pumpkin spice coffee. Does it get any better? I think not. Len and I drove up yesterday to spend a few days in the woods. We try to make it up here several times per year because it’s so peaceful and quiet. We’re both country people at heart so getting out of the city is imperative to feel more centered and balance.
We also came in celebration of Lens birthday. He turned 32 yesterday. Old dog. I love being able to celebrate another birthday with him; watching him get older and older, wrinkly and wrinklier. Next year I’ll buy him Viagra. Totally kidding.
After arriving, we broke open two of our favorite beers and opened presents. Every time I bought Len a present, I bought one for myself. He got slippers, I got slippers. He got a book, I got a book. He got art for his office….. well, it had to end somewhere. Still, I made out like a bandit.
Lennsters parents took us out to an awesome Italian meal down the street. I got the Vegetable Italian Pie- whole wheat noodles with vegetables and red sauce, covered in ricotta and baked. The serving was ENORMOUS and will provide leftovers for today (and tomorrow and the next day). So good. After dinner we made a camp fire and ate cake. A lifestyle fit for a Queen.
Our plans for the day include more relaxing, hiking and mountain biking. I’m a little nervous to bike because the other day I took a digger while riding along the Boston bike path. Please note- the bike path is flat and paved yet I still managed to fall off. Flat on my chin. All I could think about was my lack of health insurance. Medical bills are NOT in my budget. That’s for sure.
And I’m off! Happy Thursday.
