Road Trip!

Peter and I have made our first real plans for our roadtrip to Massachusetts. We're booked into an inn in Salem for the first two nights. It was built in 1809. I jokingly asked if there was a resident ghost, and was informed that, yes, there is, but it's a quiet ghost.
We're still sketchy on what we're going to do while we're there, but I'm insisting on the Witch Museum (we HAVE to...it's Salem), and Nathaniel Hawthorne's House of Seven Gables.


I love my little hutch. My Daddy made it for me. It currently houses my cookbook collection. I had more than double the amount in there now, including a big Christmas cookie tin crammed with recipes ripped out of newspapers and magazines. I pared way, way down in the Great Purge Of 2005. Now it looks very tidy, and I can actually find whatever I'm looking for in there.
