Maple & Main Gallery: Chester, CT

Couldn't resist printing both of these signs. So many directives and so little time when you are in a rush to go.As you can see, I did not manage the correct door lock procedure. I was sparing with the t.p.

No where in the states, or perhaps the world, is there a bathroom like this. This is a small corner of what is actually a room in this old house and every inch of the entire house is packed with oddities from around the world and around many a junk yard. The gardens, which have been self planted with wild walks and impromptu homemade sculptures is just as amazing. And the genius behind all this just turned 85!

Restaurant L&E: Chester, CT

So gay and irreverent. Notice the glimpse of red nipples just over the top of this chef's apron. Love the French attitude about both food and sexuality. My first visit since this restaurant ws renovated. Bravo both for decor and for food. Make a reservation soon. It is sure to be hard to get one as the word gets out.

A new session of Yin yoga has started and on the first anniversary of my husband's death. Good timing. Got a difficult day off to a wonderful start. Thank you Marjorie! Like this hot new red tee that the studio is offering.

This yoga studio is all about Love, Love, Love.  It is on their tee-shirts, their wall and the owner's tattooed arm.

Another tardy entry, but my friend will be disappointed if I don't include it. She went to all kinds of trouble to clean up her bathroom for me to photograph and I must say on a chilly January night, this was a warm(the heat was up to 75 at least) and inviting place to pull down your pants. We have been getting together every Sunday to watch Dowton Abbey and it has been great fun having company for the series.(No, the ranunculus are not real, but who cares.)

Not glitzy like the New York yoga studio I visited.  Just a simple message of love for the outside of the body as well as for the inside with the wheat grass juicer.  Tip on how to drink wheatgrass: put some cinnamon on your right hand(like salt for a shot of Tequila), suck it off and quickly down the juice.

River Tavern: Chester, CT

So, much better meal this night.  Might have something to do with the juice fast I was on for two days before coming.  Managed to resist the 1/2 price wine and the bread and olive oil.  I loved my brined and roasted bluefish and thought the chicken livers with sage over pasta- had to taste it- was fantastic.  Also the complimentary lemon curd lart they delivered. And where else can you find real linen towels in the restroom?

River Tavern: Chester, CT

Usually my favorite restaurant in the area and always full of delightful local art which sometimes changes in the restrooms, but not in the main dining areas. Why would you change work by Sol LeWitt if you didn't have to?  This day either my tastebuds were off or I was just having a post Christmas, pre New Year's overfed moment as nothing suited, not even the spiced tea.  Well, I did manage to scarf down quite a few of my friend's french fries.
