Cross one off the list...
The library was just...glorious. I could have gone right in, plunked myself down with a book and spent the afternoon.
The house also has a large assortment of family portraits. One in particular of Mary's brother who died in WWI. Let me just say that it was a fine looking family. There are also several framed samplers in the house - beautiful needlework and I came away with knit and crochet patterns for the gorgeous bedspreads.
The day finished off with bacon wrapped sirloins on the barbeque and an evening walk with the dog around the neighbourhood.
Today is more low key - mowing the grass this morning before it gets *too* hot, a quick trip to the post office and then reading on the deck and swimming in the pool. I'm taking this break thing quite seriously!
