On Columbus Day we decided to sample the pleasures and do some exploring in our own town.

Since A Spot For Tea is closed on Monday it gave me a chance to explore with my mother-in-law Helene Seibert, who is visiting from New York and best friend, Jody Sharp (my Matron of Honor and antiquing/shopping/loves good food buddy since 1979).

First we started off trying out another tearoom. You know how I love to have tea even on my day off so we tried out a old place with a new owner on 42nd and Meridian.

Then off we went strolling the streets of downtown Bethany and going to some of our favorite antique shops on an early autumn afternoon. Alot of the shops are in walking distance of one another. Window shopping and visiting with shop owners was so much fun. We talked with Millie, owner of Cobblestone and Kathy at Kathy's Korner. Everyone was so friendly and helpful and everything was decorated for fall and smelled like pumpkin and spices.

There are new discoveries to be made...every day. The best adventures I have had an(tea)quing happen when I just plan to browse. With all the bad news of economy and politics...its so nice to give yourself an excuse to time travel on a wonderful fall afternoon.

"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts."
- Henry David Thoreau

Psalm 118:24 "This is the day that the Lord has made;
I will rejoice and be glad in it."
