In the spirit of celebrating our anniversary early and often, Clif and I have decided to have a little staycation, of sorts, and do something special every day until our anniversary on March 19.
And what did we decide to do yesterday? Why go out to an ice-cream stand, of course, and have sundaes for lunch, even though the wind was whipping and the air was uncomfortably brisk.
We went to Fielder’s Choice in Manchester, which has very good ice cream, and we weren’t disappointed. My peanut butter ice cream was smooth and flavorful, and Clif’s butter finger ice cream had huge chunks of candy in it.
Still, only northerners would think it was a good idea to go get ice cream when it was bitter cold and then eat in the car.
The picture below pretty much says it all. (The white hills beyond the sundaes are indeed snowbanks, still piled high.)
Even after nearly forty years of marriage, we are still a silly couple. 😉

Definitely a silly couple! 😛 But I have a feeling that you weren’t the only one with the same idea!
So true! We weren’t the only ones there. Today’s trip will be a little warmer—we’re going to a talk at the Colby Museum of Art.
Ice cream season is short – you have to get it while you can regardless of the weather! 😛
Have fun at Colby!
So true! And the ice cream is so good at Fielder’s.
Thanks, Eliza. Just a couple of crazy Mainers.
The only way to be!
If I hadn’t given up high sugar containing foods, I’d be right there with you!!😀😀
We certainly don’t eat like that all the time. Just wanted you to know 😉
Oh, that ice cream looks delicious. Every ice cream store within 20 miles of us closes down tighter than a drum in October and won’t open until April. Can’t wait to see what you do tomorrow. 🙂
Kids go for ice cream whatever the weather 🙂
I’m worried by the idea of a close season for ice cream. It doesn’t seem right. 🙂
Great idea, Laurie. I’ll have to remember it in November when our 56th comes around. The sundaes look delicious.
Wow! Fifty-six years! Happy, happy!
