We are having a fabulous time in New Hampshire. The Condaps are, of course, so much fun. Today Erin, Jenna, and I took a trip to Target and Starbucks (my two favorite places on the planet) where I purchased some trendy leggings and a latte, respectively. Then, I went on my own adventure to downtown Keene where I stocked up on some paper for a new project at Michael’s, went to a super cool store where locals sell their own goods (including Erin Condap bottlecap necklaces), and then I went out to coffee and read… and had another latte! I’m on vacation- I can do what I want!
Kyle spent the morning finishing some devotions he’s writing for the Covenant Home Altar in the fall. They are amazing and I am so proud of him- I can’t wait for you all to read them. And then, he spent the afternoon helping Jim and Colby do some construction work in the basement. We all met for pizza for dinner. Afterwards, Erin, Kyle, Kira, Jenna, and I went to an old fashioned candy store (another favorite thing of mine to do!) and I found a store downtown where I can get fitted for new running shoes (but probably not buy them, because they are REALLY expensive there- that’s okay, right?).
At dinner, Kira was sitting on my lap and sniffing me. She abruptly pulled away and made a sour face. I said, “Do I smell bad? I think my sweater smells like coffee.” She said, “Yeah, rotten coffee.” Uh-oh, better take a shower.
When I was having a coffee date with myself, I realized about an hour into the date that I had forgotten to put change into the meter and thought- oh well, I’ll get a little ticket- I’m on vacation. So, when I got home and opened the “ticket” that I got, inside the envelope I found- not a ticket, but this note:
You have crossed paths with Robin Hood.
Your parking meter ran out of time, but my merry men remedied the situation with additional coins.
May your future travels be uninterrupted by the Crown of Keene and his many sheriffs.

Ummm, when can we move here?
