If the Farmer's Almanac is to be believed, we are in for another horrendous, snowy, cold, miserable winter in the Northeast. I am doing whatever I can to eek out as much outdoor time while it's still sunny and warm before becoming a prisoner in my house for the winter months. To that end, I've been spending at least an hour a day reading on the deck. I brought my sidekicks out with me one afternoon.
I went to Mattapoisett to have lunch with my freshman year college roomie from St. Joe's, Ellen. We haven't seen each other since 1984 and only recently reconnected via Facebook. So great to catch up in person and she lives in New Bedford, so not that far at all! Took some piccies on the main drag and we also went to Ned's Point Lighthouse and a small park in town.
A couple days later, Russell & I went for a walk on Scusset Beach. It was high tide and the waves were even more choppy than the day I went by myself. It was really breezy.
Again, I was hoping for a murmuration, but not this time.
High tide plus other people walking around meant only 1 teeny, tiny chip of white beach glass on this trip.
My sweetheart. *swoon*
Two days after that, I had to kill an hour so I went up to Butterflies of Cape Cod. I thought the weather was perfect but the butterflies were not digging the cool, shady habitat and were reluctant to wake up and fly around.
Om nom nom nom
I am so totally dreading winter.....
