We had a lot of FIRSTS today!
After rousing ourselves from bed, we fed the animals, and then headed out to try out a new breakfast place — On the Hill Family Restaurant. A little hole in the wall joint — we really liked it! We both ordered veggie omelets (with tomatoes, onions, peppers, mushrooms and cheese) with hash browns on the side — Kimm choose rye toast with butter for her carb, and I went with …. PANCAKES! (they were EXCELLENT…I haven’t had pancakes in like FOREVER!!) Coffee as well, which was pretty good for coffee! We left STUFFED!!
Home to rest for a bit. After my stomach was a little less full I made a batch of blueberry muffins with some of our blueberries we picked (we still have SO MANY left!!) and then mixed up some taco dip because we were going to be getting together with friends to chat that evening.
And then….we headed out to explore Robinson State Park!! We hiked for about 2 hours and 20 minutes…got lost a few times 🙂 (only because the trails were not well marked). But it was SO peaceful…only the sounds of nature. It completely soothed my soul. I LOVED it. Kimm did too so I’m hoping this is the beginning of an adventure in hiking 🙂 I know that there are so many places to hike in MA. I’m EXCITED!!!!
We came home, showered, I assembled the taco dip and then we gathered our liquor (wine and beer) and walked down the street to our neighbors. We enjoyed about four hours of chatting and sipping and eating — taco dip, hummus and veggies, cheese and crackers!
Home a little after 11 pm and we snacked on an English muffin with peanut butter and our blueberry jelly (WOW…good) before heading up to bed.
ANOTHER REALLY GOOD DAY!!!!! I’m absolutely loving our vacation this year 🙂
Meditations from the Mat (Day 207)…
~~asana wears away at asmita…the sense of isolated self decreases and you come more fully into yourself
~~in yoga you are both the masterpiece and the methodical artist, painstakingly working to uncover the hidden work of art
Things making me happy today: trying a new breakfast place — On the Hill, hiking at Robinson State Park, seeing Kimm’s beautiful posted pics on FB, blueberry muffins, wine and snacks with friends
