Here is the view from the the Little River B&B in Peterborough, NH. My husband and I had a great childless weekend exploring the town of Peterborough, where everyone is so friendly it made me want to move immediately. We were the first guests ever for Robert and Paula who were wonderfully welcoming. The room was spacious and warm with its own gas stove and comfortable bedding. There were “no worries” when it came to breakfast. The main course was a “Hakuna Matata Fritata” with cheese and sausage, preceded by banana-chocolate-chip scones and a yogurt, fruit and granola parfait with tasty homemade granola. Check out this great B&B next time you are in Southern New Hampshire!
We were fortunate to be invited to Lita Judge’s home for dinner and a tour of her studio.
You may have seen her work on Donna Jo Napoli’s book, Ugly but do not miss One Thousand Tracings, published by Hyperion and coming out this spring. Lita wrote and illustrated this historical picture book about American’s who helped the German citizens after World War II. As a Jew, I had always focussed on the atrocities committed during the Holocaust. This book reminds us that no matter whose war it is, the citizens of a country get swept up in the remaining poverty and destruction left behind. An important thing for us to remember in this day and age.
