I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Deville. This little kidlet has just been photographed for an ad in Step-by-Step beads magazine. She might just be my favorite kidlet so far. So cute.

New Hampshire Pictures

We went to northern New Hampshire for a business meeting. We stayed in Dixville Notch at The Balsams resort. It is an amazing place that is more beautiful I could have ever imagined.

Here's a sign that details why Dixville Notch is such a special place (especially this year!) It's where the very first votes are cast for the presidential primaries.

Here's the sign at the entrance to the resort:

Here's a wide shot of the whole resort. It was built in the late 1800's. The building details are incredible.

Here's a funny sign that they really do enforce. It's like stepping back in time. It was fun to dress for dinner, though. I thought I would hate it, being from laid-back California and all. But, I got a kick out of it, really.

Here's a photo of the room where the actual voting takes place at midnight during the primary. The candidates meet with all (lol - all 17) the residents of Dixville Notch and then they vote.

There's just beautiful scenery everywhere!

Pictures, pictures, pictures...

First, here's the improved kitchen color/lighting. I really like the soft green color a lot. The recessed lighting is way easier on the eyes, too.

Ok, so here are some pictures of Boston.
First up is a photo of some really cool row homes in downtown Boston:

Here's the world's poshest 7-11:

Harvard? I'm pretty sure it's Harvard, anyway...

Here is a photo of the most beautiful dogwood tree in the Public Garden of Boston, right next to the famous Boston Common.

I loved the color of these tulips!

Next post I will show pictures of my trip up to New Hampshire. GORGEOUS!

My Kingdom for a Card Reader

I am in Boston right now and having a fantastic time. Wow! What a beautiful city!!! I have a ton of photos to show but no way to get them into the computer. Wah! I knew I forgot something. Oh well, I will have to show you when I get home. Anyhooooo, I had lots of fun walking around downtown Boston. We even took a tour of the state house and learned lots about the history of Boston and the founding of the country. Interesting stuff. I'm glad I'd watched the John Adams series on HBO because I had at least a vague idea of who these people were that the tour guide was talking about. Mary, our tour guide, was a completely adorable lady with a thick Boston accent. She did a great tour and was quite an animated speaker. I want to do that kind of thing when I get to retirement age. She was so much fun.

Today we are travelling up to New Hampshire. I have purchased a vat of Deep Woods OFF! I am going to slather myself with DEET or whatever that chemical is called. I am totally freaked out about ticks and hear that they are out in full force in NH this spring. Ugh.
