Dunkin' Donuts Country

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth yet, it is just that blogging had dropped off my to-do list somehow. I can't believe how long it's been before I posted a blog entry! We've driven across country since then and currently reside in the heart of Connecticut, also known in our household as Dunkin' Donuts Country, since there is practically a Dunkin' Donuts shop at every corner, ah, the temptations. For the record, I haven't given in yet! (Yay!)

Needless to say, we are super excited about spending the Fall in New England, and definitely looking forward to NOT spending the winter here and heading south to Florida. It's been a great five-week here, weather (up until last week) had been awesome, and we already managed to sneak in a couple of trips to Vermont and NYC, as well as couple of hikes here. I really need to catch up on my blogging.

Our current assignment is in Waterbury, CT, a very run-down city to say the least, but the surrounding area is beautiful! Our first weekend here, we checked out the Farmer's Market in Litchfield, and did a hike in White Memorial Conservation Area. I'll post a few photos from our hike, and hopefully catch up on more blogging later.

I was just thinking about your blog earlier this week. Lovely photos. Can't wait to hear more about your hike.

So good to see you posting again, Candi!

I look forward to hearing more about CT.

Good to see you blogging again. Beautiful shots.

Kim:

Good to see you back! We drove by Waterbury two weeks ago, on our way to Boston. Wish I'd known you were in the area.

If you're still around end of October - we're doing a GTG in NYC - check the forum (I think it's 10/22 - 10/24 or whatever that weekend is).

I love it - Dunkin' Donuts Country! I must say I went into a mini withdrawal when I first moved away from New England. I thought the whole world had Dunkin' Donuts. It is funny how much a part of every day life Dunkin' Donuts is in New England.

SO you are in Connecticut! What a surprise! I hope it is a beautiful fall for you.

Nice to hear from you. I have also been on a blogging break. Hard to get back into it after stopping for a while.

By the way, I finally got my state tax return in August. Hope you got yours.

Hi Candi, it's great to hear from you again. I hope you enjoy the autumn in CT -- and then winter in Florida. What could be better? (Outside of Italy, of course!)

Glad to see you back. I know so little about New England - I'm looking forward to hearing more about your visits and trip. The forget-me-nots are beautiful.

Anne:

Your photos remind me very much of Nova Scotia!

I've not been very active myself the past many months...I manage to get an entry posted from time to time, but struggle to find time for reading up on my favourite blogs :(

Nice to see you back!

Welcome back, Candi. Welcome to my 'neck of the woods'. And 'yes' to Dunkin Donuts - you may just have to succumb!

Barb Cabot:

Candi,I missed this blog post and just came by to see what is happening. Glad to know where you are. Miss reading your blog. Just wanted to say hi. Bet you're too busy having fun. Take care.
