I Like Thursday: Nothing to See Here

So much happened this weekend and I liked so much about it.  But I forgot the camera.


So you'll have to imagine a lot of my likes.

I liked the Escape from Boston battle reenactment at the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury, MA.  My mom and I stopped by on Saturday afternoon, just in time to see the redcoats get routed (although we missed my poor Uncle Redcoat get shot down like the dog he was).  Amazing how loud those muskets were!  And a cannon.  And the smoke!  And how damned close you need to be to see the whites of their eyes!  I got history lessons from some of the bystanders.  Very cool.  And we got caught up with my aunt and uncle.  Nice.

I liked the Chocolate Tour in Newburyport.  Chocolate!  We gave them our tickets, got a bag and a map, then wandered around for two hours to at least twenty different stores.  Happy people!  Happy shopkeepers!  Beautiful weather!  And did I mention chocolate?  Some was run-of-the-mill.  But Lindt chocolates are always good.  Plus there were some wonderful handmade chocolates, brownies, lava cake (to bring home and microwave), even gelato.  Oh, yeah, I liked this a lot.

I like that proceeds went to charities like Nevins Farm (MSPCA) and Habitat for Humanity.

Ooh.  I do have something to show - I liked the paper quilling art I found in one shop.  She had some beautiful framed pieces - I bought a little card.

On the way home on Sunday, I got stuck on the wrong side of the road as a motorcycle fund-raising parade drove through.  Yeah, I wasn't happy about a 20 minute delay.  However, I was on a side-street - I pulled over, shut off my car, walked a few car lengths and got a terrific (albeit noisy) view of all those motorcycles going by.  I liked all the different shapes and sizes and all the nifty detailing.

I like hugs.  They're good stuff.  I got one on Sunday that made all my driving stress go away.  Made the drape delivery totally worthwhile.

Oh, yes!  I like that I finished three sound drapes.  Only seven more to go!

I like my aunt's old dress that she gave me for quilting fabric.  It's obvious that it's at least two sizes too small.  Regardless, I got a kick trying it on.  The short shorts looked painted on.  And that slit goes up to there!  Total hoot.  I loved it.

Be sure to check out the other I Like Thursday posts over at Not Afraid of Color.


  1. Fun list! I like the dress as well and look forward to reading about what you do with it!

  2. I would have enjoyed both festivals! Thanks for taking us along!

  3. That sounds like a swell weekend!

  4. Oh my goodness - a chocolate festival! Where can I sign up?! In the west it is usually about barbeque, so we pass on that, but chocolate? Yum!

  5. Sounds like a fun weekend! How can you go wrong with chocolate :D Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi,
    I've saw one of those enactments before, and it is really loud and smoky. Who doesn't like chocolate?? The card is beautiful. Have a great day!
