Staycation – Part II

My husband has had Mystic Pizza on his mind for sometime now. We managed to find a frozen version at the local market, but it did not kill the desire. We pretty much based this day of staycation around the pizza shop. We ordered ahead for curbside then took it to a Rhode Island library’s park to enjoy it.


We hit up THREE libraries in one day, which lead to buckling in the massive amounts of checkouts we accumulated. Lots of learning ahead. Disclaimer – some of the items are for my parents too!

We also stopped at the Fantastic Umbrella Factory, antique stores and of course, a book store!

We ended the day with Halloween movies and apple nachos!

Staycation – Part I

Drove and walked around Portsmouth, New Hampshire this weekend. Would have preferred our weekend stay in Lincoln, NH, where all the best foliage is. Alas, we did not want to take any chances. We saw some very interesting places along our walk.

We packed a lunch to avoid eating in a restaurant and stopped only in a few stores. The weather was too perfect to be indoors anyway.

I ADORE Gus & Ruby and am SO glad there is not a shop near me. I would be broke.

What a strange, yet lovely getaway
