...Quietly slipping away. Sorry, no photo as I'm posting from the iPhone. After a lovely dinner at Wood Tavern on Wednesday, we finished out the work week and are now on our way to the east coast. Thanks, everyone, for your good wishes. We both feel pretty lucky to have weathered so many years together. Mr. Celia knows how to treat a girl. Something sparkly for my finger, and now some Quiet time in the country.
Now, we'll be turning off, tuning in, and dropping out for ten days. I didn't quite catch up with the ABC-Along, but y'all know now what R will be for. Check in again after that very popular east coast yarny event.
...Preciptiation! Last night we had the first rain of autumn. This morning you can still see the dampness on the ground. In this normally very dry place, it's delicious to be lulled to sleep by the music of the raindrops and the wind. Before I went to bed last night, I took the time to savor that experience by soaking in the tub, with all the windows open.
This is just a glimpse of what's inside Mr. Celia's travel folder. In about ten days we will be traveling to the East Coast to spend ten days in New England. We're flying in to Manchester, New Hampshire and staying with friends whose family has a farm near there. Hiking, jigsaw puzzles, foliage viewing, lobster eating, quainte village visiting, etc. Awesome.
We celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary on October 8, and it was the Mr.'s idea to take this trip. I have to say, it was a perfect choice. He's already researched the golf courses in the area, mostly because there will be two days when I will be otherwise occupied. Yes, my friends, I will be going to RHINEBECK this year. And for those two days Mr. Celia can golf and watch all the football he wants to on TV while I have free reign to meet up, shop, and whatever else I might want to do at the New York Sheep and Wool Festival. We'll stay in Hyde Park and he's agreed to drop me off and pick me up, whereever and whenever I decide to I'm done.
