Ah!! Massachuesetts!!!

Oh yeah, I had finally settled in alright.

I woke and needed to go to our favorite spot to relax and chill in the mornings when we lived in MA.  I headed out first thing for Otter River.  One of the oldest National parks in the US.  My little secret hideaway.   There is an enormous tourist attraction forest not two minutes up the road from this spot and poeple have to pass by this one to get there but no one stops in to notice it’s tranquil beauty and its superb rangers and camping grounds.  This place had Yurts!!  I little river flows through this Park and has two spots along it’s widest spot to swim in. Ice cold spring water.  The color of rust from the rivers bed.   It is usually quiet and deserted.  Just the way I like swimming holes.  I got there before the park rangers, but I was used to that.  We used to come here everyday during the warmer months to swim first thing in the morning, until lunch time.  That is when a couple of families might have shown up.  This was my ultimate turning point for this vacation.  I was really getting a chance to have fun and enjoy myself.  I sat in the sun while the kids tortured themselves in the freezing water and digging huge!! holes in the beach.  It was lovely.  We petted dogs being walked by and took a little walk to the dam and looked at all the plants in the garden bed.  It was lovely.

We left the beach around 1pm and went straight to our favorite store to see any deals that we wouldn’t mind particpating in.  Joblots!!  is a subsidiary of Ocean State srtore, such as BigLots.  This store carries all the mostinteresteing items for such littlemoeny.  We found all our Bobs Red Mill Flours and Mixes for our Glutenfree eating at least half off the regular price and some blets to help hold up our pants and some reading and activity books.  It was fun!

Afterwards was hit  a new smoothie shoppe!!  You heard me a Smoothie Cafe!! in Gardner, MA.  I was floored.  It was lovely withfree Wi-fi, comfy couches, fresh fruit and yummy foods for lunch and breakfast.   We each got delicious smoothies for lunch then headed back to the house.

Shortly after we arrived, we headed back out to have a visit with my sister, Sharon.  We hadn’t been able to meet up yet and the boys really miss her.  So we hung out for a while in Newbury Comics before we went over to the Theater to watch “Ice Age Three” .  That waws a funny movie.  Really cute.  It was good to see my sister, but she didn’t have much time to visit.  She was very busy with school and work.  It was a good time.
