February Calendar Pictures …

My February pictures are.. the wall calendar on the left is of a beautiful amaryllis that a friend gave me.

The desk calendar picture on the right was taken in CT last February on my birthday… went to Rowayton, CT to meet a friend for coffee.  Before my daughter and I got there my friend had hung a ‘happy birthday’ banner over the table and had gifts and all kinds of pastries for us.  It was a spur-of-the moment get together and it was  a lot of fun.

Coffee And Grand Opening …

This is the third post in a row about my Saturday coffee outings with daughter Deb.  This past Saturday we went to the lovely and historic town of Morristown, New Jersey.

 Of course, coffee first.

After coffee we walked around town a little bit and took some pictures including one that was obviously a photo shoot going on.

Coffee And Shopping Day …

Every Saturday my daughter Deb and I go out for coffee and sometimes shopping as well.  Her best friend Dawn often joins us and we always have a good time… lots of laughing is involved.

This past Saturday we went to the pretty and charming small town of Lafayette, New Jersey which is set in the rolling hills of Sussex County.   There are a lot of antique stores and although antiques are not quite my thing it’s fun to poke around in the shops and discover that some of the antiques are things that my parents actually had when I was a child.

Our first stop was a Cloveberry, a charming coffee/food/bakery cafe.  We will definitely be going back.  The coffee was superb and the mixed berry scone I had was not only massive but de-lic-ious.

It was in the last shop, Sweet P.E.A.’s that we spent the most time… and yes, it was sweet.  Somehow I got into one of the pictures !

It was a lovely day and I’m sure we’ll go back.

These aren’t signs of spring but signs that made me smile..
