R&R

March 8, 2011 at 11:22 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Tim and I escaped to Woodstock, Vermont this past weekend. We stayed at the Blue Horse Inn, which is right in town. It is a lovely bed and breakfast, very tastefully decorated, with comfortable beds and truly the best B&B breakfast I have ever had (cream scones, french toast with maple whipped cream, shired eggs, french press coffee…). The weather was rainy and not really suited for outdoor activities (well, not to city-slickers like us who were loathe to ski or snowshoe in the rain), so there was a lot of eating, wine, dozing, and reading. On Friday night I went to bed at 9 p.m. and woke up at 8:30 a.m. the next morning. On Saturday, after a huge breakfast and an easy run through the hilly, picturesque town (over a few covered bridges, even!), we drove about 20 minutes to Hanover, N.H. and wandered around. On Sunday, like the good yuppies we are, we stopped at Simon Pearce on our way home. That’s really all we did.

Little Bug was apparently mad at us for going away with out her, so refused to speak to us on the phone all weekend. My mother let her do things like put on her bathing suit and swim in the bathtub (pretending that she was on vacation), so I think she had fun nonetheless. Little O loved spending time with his grandparents, but when we walked in the door started to babble and “talk” excitedly — I think he was very happy to see us return.

  4. beau, as u know i’ve given up facebook for lent. and i miss u! so so much. so i’m turning now to your blog. glad to see that you and tim got to get away–without the kids. how luxurious. and i too have been in a bit of a funk lately, for about the last two weeks. i too talked about it and wrote about it and i think it’s starting to life. maybe it’s a back-to-work mommy thing. often when i’m sitting at my desk glued to my chair i can smell my little baby. i just conjure up his smeel and think i so want to be with him. then it’s back to work.
