Relaxing Week

I am home from my stay at the pond in southern New Hampshire.  I had a really great time.

It was a very relaxing five days with my friend.  We met quite a few years ago on a trip to St. Martin.
She and her husband were middle school teachers and her husband and mine had many interests in common.  We had many good times as couples.  Now we are both widows having good times together, tinged with some nostalgia.

We walked around the pond, avoiding ticks.  We kayaked in the pond.  We drove to Peterborough Playhouse to see "The Producers" (which was absolutely spectacular, maybe the best summer stock theater production I have ever seen).  We played games and read.  We ate and drank a little wine.
We binged on "Land Girls." a Netflix series I can recommend.  And we talked and laughed and talked some more.

I didn't take my computer and I had no cell reception and the time flew by.


  1. So happy you were able to get away and enjoy the company of your friend. I love unplugging and just being. What a wonderful little trip for you and yay! No ticks! :D

  2. Olga, it all sounds wonderful! Perfect for you.

  3. Photos look like postcards. Happy you have such a wonderful time.

  4. What a beautiful place and it sounds like you had a really fun R & R time. Thank goodness the ticks behaved.

  5. Sounds quite idyllic and pleasant, Olga.

  6. Sounds wonderful. Good for you.

  7. your profile read made me cry.
    but i am grateful for you have your kids and grand kids to love and to be loved my friend!
    glad you had relaxing week ,lucky you i must say!

    pics are lovely

  8. Glad you got away and had a good times. Glad the ticks didn't find you again.

  9. I am amused at the many times I've heard about no cell reception in areas of the US but villages in India have it. They use cell tech to help villages grow crops. Areas od Africa are the same.
    But the main point here is your lovely visit and I am happy for younand your friend.
