And We're Back!!!

Well! What an exhausting week we have had, my dears!

Good thing that we always have our House-Boy "Raoul" at the ready with a refreshing beverage when we return from our daily escapades!

Monday we explored a faaaabulous little shopping venue called The Promenade Shops at Evergreen Walk. Very posh!

It had everything from Amy's Hallmark to Williams-Sonoma! And we hit them all! (Well, except for the women's clothing stores. We just judged and commented in those places!)

Afterwards we made the mistake of having lunch at Golden Corral.  The food was good, but, it was just too tempting and we ate far too much! (Ack! Needless to say, we skipped dinner!)

Tuesday we decided to stay home and do some yardwork to prepare for the upcoming cold weather. Four hours and countless yard-waste bags later we were done in, but, a refreshing cocktail courtesy of Raoul brought us back to life in time for a lovely evening entertaining some friends! A good time was had by all and no one called the police this time.

Wednesday was rather rainy and dreary so we went shopping! This time it was a bit closer to home, at the Holyoke Mall at Ingleside. (The largest mall in New England!)

We did get a few fabulous little things and then finished it off with lunch at The Olive Garden (yes, I know my dears, we have been slumming it a tad, but, we had a gift certificate, so what can you do?!!). The food was good, and you knew that it hadn't been sitting around for the waiter to deliver it to us for long, as it was BOILING HOT! No worries about cold food at that place! Yikes!

Thursday we decided to have a quiet day at home enjoying "inside activities". Nuff said!

Friday we decided to go (what else?) shopping again, so we went to beautiful downtown Northampton, MA. (a.k.a. Lesbianville, USA The Paradise of America). We spent the morning strolling through the fabulous little boutiques, where you can buy anything from a Tibetan thangka to a dildo made from semi-precious stone!

For lunch we went a little more upscale and dined at the famous Paul and Elizabeth's. A fabulous little eatery that has been around since the 1980s! They specialize in "natural foods" and it is delish!!

After lunch? More shopping of course!

This past weekend we were still busy, busy, busy!

Saturday morning was spent doing chores around the house, F went to deal with his mother and I went to see my mother in the afternoon and we then went out to dinner with my sister and her husband at the absolutely fabulous India House restaurant in Northampton. By far the best Indian food in the Pioneer Valley!

Sunday we went to the birthday party of one of the children of some good friends of ours. It was lots of fun, but, thankfully it ended early enough so that we could come home and collapse in preparation for the work week ahead!

And that was our week! I shall be visiting you all shortly to see what has been going on in your lives! TTFN!!


  1. Shopping, yardwork and wine.
    One of these things doesn't belong!!

  2. What, no Red Lobster? I mean, you were on a white-trash roll there for awhile!
    Welcome home. Sometimes I would sit alone, watch Bollywood clips on Youtube and cry my eyes out hoping that you would come back. And honestly, what is Madonna, Cher and Lady Gaga up to these days. Who would know!
    Welcome home.

  3. Don't worry Mark! All your burning questions will be revealed this week! ;)

  4. I can speak on behalf of all your minions you were missed !
