I’ve spent the past 6 days fairly disconnected from my computer, the blog world, and media in general and it’s been wonderful to be so present.
The dis-connectivity, however, came to a screeching halt when I purchased myself an iphone4 on sunday evening. I’m determined to not be one of those people; face buried in a screen, constantly distracted, pulling up an app for anything that might be needed. But one thing I will be using it quite frequently for, is snapping photos on the go. The camera is great quality, and much more convenient to bring than my SLR.
So thanks to my new heightened level of connectivity, here is a glimpse of my lovely Monday through a new lens…
My brother and I went out to brunch at our favorite spot, The Friendly Toast in Portsmouth, NH.
I ordered the New Hampshire classic…
That’s goat cheese, bacon, asparagus, scallions and a lime avocado dip on the side. Brunch is the best invention. Go in starving. Eat the equivalent of two meals. Leave happy.
Then my very best friend made a surprise visit home for the day. We spent 2 hours catching each other up on everything before she had to head off for the night. It was too short and sweet, but a great surprise.
My Mom and I took our pup to my favorite place on earth for a stroll. First beach trip of many this year, now that I’ll be back on the coast for a while. Happy happy place.
After sitting in 2.5 hours of beach traffic to get the 7 miles home……… we really should have thought the going to the beach on an 80 degree holiday in April thing through a little more….. we stopped for some dinner supplies and assembled a gorgeous summer meal.
Un-pictured tomato, basil, and goat cheese salad. Asparagus, sweet potatoes, and lemon chicken. Summer flavors at their finest.
Or maybe that’s summer flavor at it’s finest. Grass fed cows make damn good ice cream.
How much do you use your phone and/ or computer? Do you feel like your too connected? When was the last time you took a good long break from it all?
