Return to summer
In the weeks since returning from Paris, and slowly remembering things like "go to work today" and "buy groceries soon or else!", we have settled back in to a somewhat normal schedule. But now with BOCCE!
We enjoy bocce quite a bit, but since we knew bocce owners in NC and in Middletown, we didn't acquire our own set until our Target registry offered us the opportunity. Bethany came through on that one, which is great because she gets to reap the rewards and play bocce with us from time to time. Bethany also keeps us up to date with things to do in CT, like the Mystic Arts Festival, where there are great things like this,
and the crazy-ass drawbridge,
and finish it all off with a Japanese Sushi Cocktail!
AND, as if that weren't enough, Bethany lets us know about things like local wine festivals, with things like baby llamas,
pulled pork beignets,
and of course, wine tasting, which makes us all happy,
and occasionally makes us want to kiss a llama.
Oh, then we went and ate lobster rolls.
Other than that, it has just been mantis,
food (Cato Corner cheese!),
with some grilling and more bocce and the end of summer thrown in there also.
