Yesterday was Valentine's Day. Decided to take the day off from work, and spend it with my beloved. We went to Great Barrington (Masachusetts) to wander the shops and have a Thai lunch.
On our first Valentine's Day together in 2005, Linda & I surprised each other with silly little stuffed animals, Froggy & Hedgehog (guess which one is 'me'?). They became our alter egos, travelling with us during our long-distance relationship phase, having a book written about them as another V-day gift from me to Linda, vacationing in Maine, playing in snowstorms. Of late, to protect them from the Lola-monster, they've been rather sadly neglected, tucked away on top of a cabinet. Yesterday they protested loudly, demanding that they be included in our expedition. Fair enough...so here is the day through their eyes:
An adventure means meeting friends; we found a bunch of new ones at Tom's Toys!
Ya gotta have it...and we do!
Yellow House Books had creaky floors and books tucked into every corner.
Espresso, anyone? Loved The Chef's Shop!
Especially the mini-cupcakes! These are Red Velvet & Chocolate-Stout. Yummmm...
Where the buffalo roam? TP Saddleblanket. Ride 'em, cowboy!
Lunch was at Siam Square...we had Beef Satay, Siam Fried Rice and Chicken Massaman Curry. We've all agreed not to talk about the poetic-sounding but rather yucky Ginger Moon dessert. Bleah! We think Linda & Ashling need to go back often to try everything.
Eye candy, laughter, good food, conversation...and each other. It was a good day!
