Taking a few days of vacation in NH. My mom got a cabin for the week, and E, my sister, her husband, my mom, and I were up here Saturday through today, and I'm staying a couple more days with my mom. She's going to spend some time looking for potential places to buy somewhere up here, as she'd like to have a place to retire to that's fairly near us but also a bit out of the city. I caught and gutted (first time) two fish, and they turned out pretty good on the grill (pictures to follow). E and I also made some nice pizzas (one with mango, sun-dried tomato, basil, and a goat gouda, and one with artichoke hearts, olives, and asiago). It's a bit weird being here without E now, but I have a few more vacation days than she does this year, so I figured this would be a good time to use a few. The other "extra" days I figure I'll likely take by just staying home some time and trying to do various projects.
