Well...I have to take that back...people were wearing a mix of everything today...boots, shorts, sandals?
I saw a woman wearing a winter coat with flip flops!!!
It was a warm weather day for Christmas shopping!!!
We finished most of our shopping and had a wonderful lunch at an amazing place called The Whip!!!
It is in the heart of horse country...in an old redone barn with amazing beers and fresh organic foods.
The incredible thing, too, is that it is perhaps 15 minutes from our house and we never knew about it.
I had an amazing beer in a wine glass. Quite delicious. We had house smoked fish on little baby potato pancakes...OMG.
Then the vegetarian in me had a huge hamburger with sautéed onions and crumbled Stilton cheese.
I had a really difficult time choosing between that and the house made veggie burger...which lost out...I am weak...very weak.
Yesterday was just a teeny bit sad.
But the sadness is gone today. I still miss my dad and mom so much.
Christmas reminds me of them...my dad buying and my mom wrapping and baking and mildly complaining.
It's like Christmas!!!
Oh wait...it is Christmas!!!
I received The Starboard Sea from ShelfAwareness and NetGalley.
I have desired this book from the moment I read about it.
Boarding school, boys in troubles, teachers, Maine...my kind of book.
I am reading this now!!! Right now...I can not wait.
NetGalley is responsible for so much book goodness this week.
Thank you Santa NetGalley!!!
