I'd almost forgotten how perfect the late Summer days can be
'up North'. Yesterday we took a drive through New Hampshire
back roads, stopping at a couple of small country towns,
once for a coffee, and then to buy yarn from a truly
old-fashioned yarn shop. I thought of how some of my
blog friends who knit, crochet etc., - including
Claudia in NY, Tammy far away in Kuwait - would
have enjoyed being there with me.
It was the most amazing selection of yarns I've ever seen.
Yes, I did buy some French yarn to knit a scarf while
TV watching come Winter. Nothing complicated as were
some of the knitted beauties on display in the shop,
because I don't need complications at this time of life.
Domed building is the State House in New Hampshire's
capital city of Concord.
The red house and barns were a gracious complex of
buildings, and FOR SALE, set back from a country road rolling
through the small town of Weare. I can imagine it soon
dressed in even more color as Autumn foliage appears.
I'd enjoy living there, just far enough removed from the
madding crowd such as we now have in greater Raleigh, which
by the way, welcomed its one millionth resident last Friday!
I lived up here in New England for 12 years - I think I
could return quite easily.
