Lifelong dear friend, Amy, drove down from Newbury (childhood hometown) with her 2 children on Friday.
They picked me up at Ric’s while he was at work. We checked into the Holiday Inn Express about 5 miles away.
Great price, great room, great pool, great location. We had a view of a cornfield, which was loaded with Canadian Geese and rabbits. The snowfall topped it off!
Ric picked us up when he got off of work. We went to a really cute place, Mimi’s Cafe. He thought I’d like it because of the New Orleans theme. Like I said, “cute”. Period. I’ll never return. Nevertheless, we had a very fun evening.
We awoke Saturday morning to a surprisingly nice breakfast buffet. Eggs, meats, yogurts, cereals, breads, the works. Yummy.
Spent some time in the pool, then hopped in Amy’s car and went to Toot’s for a pitcher of beer and nibbles for the little ones. This joint is maybe 1/2 mile from Ric’s place. Have been stopping here for years. Fun place.
Later that night, we caught a cab to my favorite local Mexican restaurant, Abuelo’s
Had a wonderful dinner, margaritas and an uneventful cab ride back to our hotel. (This was Ursula and Elsa’s first taxi ride!)
More snow, a little television, then awoke Sunday for another nice breakfast and sad goodbyes.
Spent the day with Ric watching football all day. ‘Twas a lovely weekend.
