I don't think we took any pictures on Friday. During the night on Thursday, it started to rain and didn't really stop until Friday afternoon. However, this was fine with us! We really need rain here. We had arranged to meet a friend for breakfast on Friday, but she called and changed the plan, saying she would prepare breakfast at her cabin. Again, fine with us! We enjoyed fruit, cinnamon rolls and delicious veggie and cheese omelets. Then we spent the rest of the morning visiting on her enclosed porch and watching rain fall on her pond. A wonderful time of fellowship!
On the way back to our cottage we stopped at a Family Dollar to pick up a few necessities. After lunch of ham and cheese sandwiches back at the cottage, we relaxed thoroughly for the rest of the afternoon. Mr. T actually took a nap! Not just dozing in a chair as he frequently does, but actually lying down and sleeping soundly for a couple of hours. I know he needed the rest.
While he napped, I worked on a variety of projects, mostly my scrapbook journal, which I had thought to bring along.

When Mr. T woke up, I prepared Zesty Chicken Cheese Soup, a favorite meal of ours for a getaway because all you do is open cans, heat the combination in a saucepan, and add cubed cheese. So easy and it usually lasts us for two meals! You can find the recipe here: simple meals for a getaway. We enjoyed this simply with tortilla chips on the side and/or crumbled into the soup.
After supper we watched the Red Sox win and made an early night of it.
Since I have so little to tell about Friday, I'll add in Saturday morning here too. We decided to go out for breakfast in Errol, one of the closest New Hampshire towns of any size. After a nice breakfast of corned beef hash omelets, home fries, and raisin toast, we headed to L.L. Cote, an interesting store that caters to hunters, fishermen, snowmobilers -- really to outdoor interests of all kinds! Think Cabela's on a somewhat smaller scale. They also have a very nice selection of gifts. One thing I wanted to find here was a birthday card for our 10-year-old grandson in Nevada. Sure enough, we found the perfect card and were able to mail it right next door!
