Who Are They?

                         (On lawn in front of the Publick House Historic Inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.)

Okay. Here is a question for you.


                     (On lawn in front of the Publick House in Sturbridge.)

Do you know who Anna, Elsa, Kristoff , Sven and Olaf are?

For those who don't know, they are characters from a wildly popular Walt Disney movie, "Frozen."




It's a nice, 3D computer-animated musical film.

Elsa is the Queen of Arendelle with powers that allow her to turn everything into ice. 

Unfortunately, she flees from her kingdom, leaving it in eternal winter.

Olaf is an adorable snowman who dreams of enjoying summer!

Kristoff is a rugged outdoorsman and iceman who drives off with Anna, Elsa's sister, in his sleigh, driven by Sven, his pet. reindeer.

They are off to find Elsa and convince her to restore her kingdom to normalcy.

Almost everywhere you look these days you can see things promoting the characters in "Frozen."


Books, costumes, cds, dolls, games and on and on into commercial "maniaville." (That's my made up word.)



During a trip to BJs warehouse, recently, there were numerous books, etc. for sale, featuring Elsa and, of course, Olaf.

Also, on the lawn outside of the Public House, a lovely old inn in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, guess whose scarecrow cut-out was there?  Uh huh.  Elsa and Olaf.  Adorable.

HAVE YOU SEEN THE MOVIE "FROZEN?"  IF YES, DID YOU LIKE IT?

Christmas Cactus Bursts into Bloom


News Flash:  Christmas cactus plants don't wait for Christmas to bloom.


We discovered that exquisite blooms opened from delicate buds.



They are creamy pastel pink with splotches of deeper color.


There's an exotic looking tip to each bloom, tinged in brilliant deep pink.

Christmas cactus could easily win a prize as being one of the
most elegant in the plant kingdom.  




DO YOU HAVE A CHRISTMAS CACTUS? IF YES, WHAT COLOR?

Sunday Lunch at an Old New England Inn



Okay sweet blog peeps...

Remember yesterday how we  promised another post about the Publick House, a lovely old inn,  in Sturbridge, Massachusetts?

Well, today we will tell you about some of the lunch entrees our party enjoyed in Ebenezer's Tavern at the inn.


So if you are hungry, you might want to go grab an apple or something.  (hee hee)

Everyone loved the bread basket offerings, especially the sticky pecan rolls.


One sister had decadent lobster pie, butternut squash and potatoes, shown below:


Here's the tavern's chicken pot pie, enjoyed by another sister:

  The (early Thanksgiving) turkey dinner got  rave reviews from yet another sister!:

  My own lunch, quite tasty, consisted of fish and chips,  but minus the chips. 

Instead, I opted for a green salad with blue cheese dressing. Yummy.

  The raspberry tart turned out to be a perfect ending of the meal for one guest.


Grapenut pudding, unfortunately, got a thumbs down from the sister who ordered it.

  And very old fashioned Indian pudding, dark and spicy, satisfied completely.

  So there you have it. That's the end of  the tavern's lunch offerings.  Are you hungry yet?

We'll close with the bouquet of flowers in one of the inn's hallways. It was so lovely.

 
WHAT WOULD YOU ORDER IF DINING IN AN INN?
