Gnorm in NH...a bit of this and a bit of that

Gnorm says hello from Goffstown, New Hampshire! Here's what he was spending his Thursday with our family. Photos are a bit mixed up...but here we go.
We started the day with pancakes, and REAL maple syrup, which New England is well know for. I found Gnorm sitting on the windowsill, slugging down the syrup while I was doing the breakfast dishes.
The kids and I then headed to the homeschool group which meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays...it was yearbook signing day, so he added his two cents and a few comments to a few yearbooks
with one of my students, below. Gnorm was VERY POPULAR with the Jr and Sr teens...

Next, Gnorm and I share my daily favorite...a large Dunkin Donuts coffee, while knitting socks.Other moms and I spend Mom time, knitting, cross stitching, etc. while the kids have class time. Gnorm stayed close to me so he wouldn't disappear with a wee one. It was a long day, so when we returned home, Gnorm snuggled up with my youngster for rest time.
Gnorm helped himself to a bag of Peanuts for a quick pick-me-up snack, and then met...Annie...the puppy, through the kennel door.



BRAVE GNOME!


We ended the day with a "memorial" for Mrs. and Mr. Duck, who were whisked away by a fox or fisher cat this week (see my blog for details). This photo is Gnorm, spending a quiet time reflecting on our deceased fowl he's never met...

As far as sightseeing here in New Hampshire...its' been 40-45 degrees the past 2 days, and raining like the Dickens. We'll see what "touristy" stuff we can see today before he's send on his way in a few hours to ____________. Can't tell you where he's heading next...but he's coming with a box full of goodies.

Is there anything more New England than maple syrup and Dunkin' Donuts coffee?? Glad you all had fun together...

Is Gnorm helping with some Monkey socks? They look good! And what's better than *real* maple syrup? Yum! Looks like you're having fun even if it has been raining!

Gnorm hasn't been very far away from me... here's hoping when he (or Gnuman) return to Southern, NH later in the swap that our weather is better! argh.
