So for Valentine's Day we made reservations for lunch. As I had been in NoVA dog sitting, it was just a drive cross Chain Bridge and down to Black Salt. A bit of confusion when I didn't have a parking app to park on the street but the bad news came inside when they had a very abbreviated menu. Nothing really grabbed us and while we had good meals, it was a bit of a disappointment. We have learned that holidays are never a good idea at restaurants. This was no exception.

That way I know I'll have a couple dozen stories told this year. It's a start! This lad, my former husband, here relaxing just before a wedding down in San Angelo Texas, just had a birthday this week. Birthday boy is now 72. Time does pass, doesn't it. Funnily enough, I now have yellow chairs just like those in the photo. I bought mine on Craigs List a couple of years ago because they really appealed to me. Now I see why. Yellow metal chairs mean a happy time and I didn't even realize it til today! How memories are made... There were many many more elements in the StudioDD template but I wanted it a bit less busy for this older photo. I also recolored the beads to go with his gray suit.

It's also been a while since I made the layout right after doing a blog post! Last Friday, dh had a coupon for a pre-Valentine's Day treat at Starbucks. Coffee and a pastry for $5. Not necessarily the greatest bargain but a nice idea. So off we went when the clock struck 2pm. (That must be a slow time at Starbucks...) I was enticed by the one special...a Flat White with a chocolate croissant (warmed!).  He decided to get the other special ...a Raspberry Chocolate Latte with a shortbread cookie. Mine was just right but as I suspected his choice was way too sweet for him.  This is a man who drinks Sumatran, black no sugar. (ugh...) But we enjoyed our treats, perused the new mugs and tumblers, and the types of coffee pods that fit the old Keurig passed on to us by our grandson. Nothing we needed but I would like one of those stainless straws! While we were there I saw two couples come in but no one else sat at our table or played with the props. Maybe you have to be young enough or old enough to have fun being silly. Put me in the latter category!  Just think...this wasn't even Valentine's Day. It was Friday the 13th, and a good one it was.

So I got three of the little white Ikea frames and each month make a calendar for the center frame and two other images that fit the month. The images are 5x7 so our little skinny wall is nicely filled. The third card, not shown here, is a poster I saw on Pinterest.

Perfect! That freebie was also used as a mask for the photo. Our landlady was Mrs. Ellsworth, and a true gem she was. She took in mostly long term boarders like us. I can only recall one other tenant, a young man our age, David,  whose parents were working were out in Bahrain. Little did I know that I would also end up in Bahrain one day. My husband was working rotating shift work so there were days that I had to stay out of the room while he slept. My son and I wandered through the town of Harrogate, but mainly enjoyed our time in the Valley Gardens. As I recall it was a fairly sunny summer, or maybe I had already learned as we were taught..If the sun was out, take advantage of it.  Mrs. Ellsworth was wonderful to us and oh did she feed us. The English Breakfast was in all its glory then with eggs, bacon, sausage, fried tomatoes and mushrooms, fried bread and a good pot of tea.  While it sounds a lot, the weather wasn't terribly warm to us and with all that walking, at my young age I burned those calories off. As regular tenants, we also had dinner with Mrs. E. I don't recall those meals in detail but I know they were good. Real, fresh food was a given in our years in England. Simple and hearty and delicious. British food had no bad reputation for us! After our meal, we usually sat around and talked, and once in a while Mrs. E. would ask my husband to 'bath the dog.' Old Blackie would reluctantly be led out to that driveway next to the house and get hose downed, soaped up, and rinsed.  He smelled much sweeter and endured these episodes with a British upper lip.  I wish I had a picture of it all. It wasn't an easy few months but even then we knew it was a good time.

This week involved a lot of preparation for my knee surgery. I gathered up clothes for the charity shop, made food for me/us for after my rehab weeks &amp; took time to have a JsS session with Janie. Dick got his iPhone6 but I decided to wait for mine. Tangerines were starting to come into season even though 64º here meant Indian Summer!

A local restaurant was closing after quite a few years but they were still serving German dinners on Friday nights til the end of the year. My spaetzle was just ok as were the potato pancakes. While not great it made me happy. He was too!

November was a hospital etc month and December was mostly PT! That feels like a good wrap up solution. A lot of this week involved preparations for next month’s knee surgery. But there was also the fun of Halloween even tho I did not do much for decorations. Dick got me two ‘sweeties’ and I am aging the Peeps! It was nearly the end of sandal time for me but I got a pair of flower leggings to wear post surgery! Gotta have fun. In my post Dr. Who withdrawal I watched The Escape Artist which was a heavy one, plus I’d seen it before. The garden herbs were put under the deck awning in case there is a frost before I get back home after Thanksgiving. Ben Bradlee died, an icon from my youth.

A page with a bit of catch up will have to work here. btw, I LOVE the long journalers! Once we got to the town of Chieri on the other side of the hill - or what is a small mountain in my mind - we could have spent some time just having an espresso or walking a bit in the town but seeing as how long our trip UP had taken, we decided the better idea would be to just make sure we could get back to Turin in the daytime. We dreaded the possibility of the same kind of ride. Getting back on the bus into Turin we were sooo relieved that our current driver was not the lunatic that we had had on our first ride. The ride up to the summit was again a straight road and we changed buses up at the top with a brief bit of time to enjoy the vistas. Sadly, we just looked and didn’t take more photos. Going down the western switchbacks was pretty pleasant when one wasn’t falling off the seat or lurching forward. By this point we could laugh at our experience earlier on, one I’d not like to repeat. Having an espresso on solid ground, at ‘home’ in Turin, seemed like a wise idea.

It didn’t seem far and had been in many of the guide books. This seemed like it would be a short trip. The seats on the bus were wooden and there was a lot of standing space.I got a seat facing forward but Dick was facing backward. That would be the least of his problems. Our driver turned out to be hell bent on getting up the many switchback turns as quickly as possible. The flock of teenage students had quite a time standing and nearly falling on the floor every time the driver jammed his breaks on. Dick kept sliding off his seat and neither of us saw the memorial we had hoped to visit. Stops just happened and there was no way of telling when one might come up, plus I realized we were not only going farther than we had planned but all the stops were outside gated homes. The only thing to do was stay on til the bus came to the end of its journey. Round and round we rode for more than an hour til we came down from out hill on the other side. It was a beautiful but death defying ride. Now to get back to Turin alive!<br /><br />3 comments Mon, 19 Jan 2015 19:30:55 +0000 14 March 28A <a href=";title=14-march-28a&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="14_March_28_A_700LP.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="14_March_28_A_700LP.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: maureenreynolds<br /><br />Description}: Our last day in Turin involved getting a lot of packing done &amp; clearing out. It was a sunny day so once again I had a chance to look out our windows to see the apartments across the street. In the evenings, I had loved watching the young couple across the way prepare dinner. I wished I could have invited myself over! Signor looked like a very good cook. After Dick moved the car from the free nightly street parking to the garage at Porta Susa, we decided to finally take the ‘sightseeing’ Star tram. After waiting &amp; waiting we finally read the notice that let us know that this tram only ran only on weekends. Oh well... We took another tram to downtown &amp; by then needed an espresso. Well I did. Then we visited the Cathedral &amp; said the requisite prayer in front of the replica of the Shroud of Turin. Once again, not agreeing on where to eat, we finally settled for a very modern cafe that specialized in ‘healthy food.’ Not the best choice but we were both ready to sit down. It’s a good thing we did get some refreshment because there was an adventure ahead that we did not expect. I decided that I wanted to see the other side of the Po river which turned out to be full of lovely shops but way too hilly for my knee. So we ventured on a tram that appeared to be going UP the hill. Oh did it! lynng-big-shot-album Font: Arial, Big Caslon Thanks for looking!<br /><br />9 comments Wed, 14 Jan 2015 23:28:10 +0000 14 March 28 B <a href=";title=14-march-28-b&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="14_March_28_B_700LP.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="14_March_28_B_700LP.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: maureenreynolds<br /><br />Description}: lynng-big-shot-album Thanks for looking!

I hoped to get this album done before 2015 and it may happen...;) I woke up VERY early on March 24th with an incredible noise out the front window. After trying to ignore it for a while I finally had a look . Apparently, the noisy neighbors above were moving out and with the old building, most of their stuff was coming down a ladder onto the removal van. It was a brilliant clear day and so we decided this would be the day to head south, down to the Mediterranean. We walked to the garage holding our car and headed west , with the Alps just breathtaking. Eventually we headed south and drove and drove. We soon realized that with our usual late departure, we could not do any sightseeing on the way down. Ah well, another day, another trip. Suddenly it seemed we were getting close as the air and temperature changed. Then there was that magic moment when all at once the sea was visible. Now all we had to do was get to a coastal road and decide where we would go. Genoa to our west and Monaco to our east.

It was sunny and warming up a good bit which was a nice change. As it was off season, a lot of hotels were sprucing themselves up before Easter, and we saw very few other people about. A quick stop for an espresso and a bathroom break and we realized we had better find a place for lunch before lunch was over. We finally found a small restaurant where we were the only customers but were welcomed warmly by the owners. While their son watched cartoons and snacked, Mama did the cooking for us. I had my first pesto on this trip and it was just the thing. Dick had spaghetti bolognese and then a grilled sausage and chips. After my dessert, we realized we had better head back north lest we get back to Turin in rush hour. I knew we didn’t want to try to navigate our return in the dark either. A short seaside visit but a nice sunny break for a change of pace.

It's the Easton Hospice. MONDAY- Chiropractor on Columbus Day. LOL, he’s Italian! TUESDAY-Made Matzoh Ball soup from mix but with homemade broth WEDNESDAY- PT was good; Tom came to check various house issues incl the bathroom skylight, the smoke detector and a ramp. So humid that cookbook was curling up THURSDAY- No a/c last night just ceiling fan and window open. I had a nice visit with Emily at SEEDS and believe she is a real gem. Dick had another fish dinners for the guys. FRIDAY-A trip to the Apple store to resolve his issue with alerts from my computer. It was, as I suspected, a problem at his end with gmail. So many accounts. Picked my car up and it’s doing quite well. Got fuel for it and now I’m set. SATURDAY-Swept the leaves, and cleaned off the potting table.

This WAS the week that I saw the surgeon and set the date. Seems like last year.... Many moments this week. Time for a pedicure. The flowers shifting to fall blooms just as the meals did. A BWI trip to see an old friend and say goodbye to another. Crabcakes and laughs. Meeting Paul Reed Smith. Coffee arriving in a cute box. Heavy rain and droopy bamboo. Time listening to podcasts and enjoying life.

Our 1910 house could not handle the plumbing issues and the cost, even if possible, was not a reasonable expense. So our old cellar got a plain old tank - good for 10 years. We hope.

We had some Peruvian chicken on Sunday with alfajores cookies for dessert. Oh I’m gonna make these! On my birthday it was REALLY hot but we drove to North East MD for crabs. Not terrific this year but it was a wonderful day. In Rising Sun we went to a dairy&amp; then stopped at an Amish market for veggies. I got two boxes of tomatoes for canning but I froze them instead. The corn we had the next day was the best I’ve had in a long time. My desk got moved around &amp;I installed my 3T ehd. That one has a firewire connection &amp;I wish I had more of those connections on my iMac. The faster I have, the faster I want! I saw the chiropractor, the dentist, &amp; the orthopedist. Finally made the decision to pursue knee replacement sooner rather than later. Time at Seeds &amp; was glad to get a shot of the big tree while it still has leaves. Friday’s Seton Sewers meeting gave me a chance to hit Wegmans' on the way home &amp; I got Dick some of the super hot chiles.

You know how those things go... Well at my recent JinShinJyutsu class I sat next to a woman who I recalled was from Bulgaria originally. I asked her about the yoghurt she was eating and she said she had made it! Woot! I asked her if she would bring me some to use as a starter and she agreed. I used her method of boiling the milk, cooling it, adding the yoghurt and then just keeping it in a little cooler over night. The proof is in the way it set up! However, next time I plan to let it ferment at least two days. I like mine good and tart. Easy Peasy!

The church was Sacred Heart Cathedral right in the heart of town. It always amazed me that this ‘little’ town had a cathedral while it didn’t have a proper department store. We were nearly ready to leave for church when we had a surprise. Our little boy had his first dirty diaper and dirty it was! We were fairly clueless on the exact procedure for changing the diaper but we got the cloth diaper changed, got him tidied, and proceeded on to the service. He entered the church and we entered parenthood!

He was going fishing in Alaska with granddaughter Josie and I had a JinShinJyutsu class in Crofton. It was restaurant week in DC so Dick made two reservations and in the end we had to cancel one. I knew Acadiana would be his 1st choice and fine with me. Biscuits with pepper jelly, a blt salad for me, gumbo for him, blackened fish for him and of course shrimp and grits for me. We took half our entrees home so we could do justice to the desserts. A prix fixe to suit two. We were even able to sit outside which for DC in August is just amazing! A very good choice I think.
