"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

The anniversary was terrific. Hilarious cards and mutually useful and desirable gifts. Something with a plug for the Lodge, something to enhance life at the cottage, and something extremely sparkly with both carats and karats.

Thursday was a day of shopping, errands and lessons. On Friday the dogs and I had a lovely walk in the warm sunshine and I completed more garden tidying--including the bed that I'd neglected in the springtime.

Yesterday we went to Manchester to the Currier Museum of Art, La Carreta Mexican Restaurant, and the NH Coin Show where the Chap found a few items worthy of investment.

At present we're at the cottage, taking care of end-of-season tasks. It's breezy and cool but wonderfully sunny and lots of nice colour. Because we spent part of our honeymoon beside the Bay, it's nice spending time in the very same spot.

This week brings my last official duties as a legislator in this session. Plus other meetings and some socialising and a party.
