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.
