About a week and half has passed since I returned home from my trip to Connecticut and Massachusetts and it took about a week to finally feel like I was really home. Everything seemed the same but I think my brain was still back in New England. My two cats looked at me funny but they seem to be okay now!
Just a little while ago I went to my Dashboard at Massachusetts Meanderings and more and almost fell off my chair. I have two followers, WOW! Happy Dance!! Thank you to my two followers!!
Monday, my shipment of books and brochures came from Simsbury and that means that I am all complete. No major losses of research or anything. On the trip I did misplace my jacket but the B&B sent it to me and my prescription glasses which I retrieved. Whew!
I promised myself I would not indulge too much in books but I did buy a few. I have mentioned some of them in the various posts but here is the list again if you are curious. As for brochures, well I over did those but I am not going to publish them here it would take forever. I suggest you to my links on the right some are taken from the brochures on archives and travel sites that I thought would be very interesting. I might add more as I review my research.
