It was a good weekend and it's a beautiful day here in the rural woods of New Hampshire!
Saturday my (adult)son and I went to Manchester (NH)-(Google it) to a New Hampshire Made Expo. It is an annual event that showcases all kinds of products and services that are done and made in New Hampshire from candles, jams/jellies, jewelry, woodworking, sauces, restaurants etc to help get the New Hampshire population aware to BUY LOCAL. And I did! I bought this really NEAT Yogibo ( www.yogibo.com/ ) chair and cube foot rest/seat. I LOVE LOVE it! It's HUGE squishy, comfortable, and fun. I bought it for my grandsons to sit on down stairs in the play room but I might keep it for myself. There is all kinds of uses for it. Here is me sitting in the chair.
Then after that we went to a Middle Eastern restaurant and grocery store so he could get a Shawarma sandwich (what you people here in America call a Gyro) that he used to eat growing up. It was pretty good.
Today (Monday) I took my trash to the dump (we don't have normal trash pick up here in the boonies) and just kept on driving. It is a beautiful day here, the first really nice day since I've been here. I drove through the back roads that I normally don't drive, stopped in a couple of little stores along the way and browsed, stopped in a little country museum and store to get some local honey to help my allergies, then stopped at the gym I have belonged to in the past and re-joined. Came home and chipped away some on the icebergs on my front porch that just don't seem to melt, put up my mail box so I guess I ma officially settled until August when I have to go back over to Saudi Arabia again.
