weekending - farmville

winter wonderland :: the view from migraine-land :: morning tea :: the stairs :: the study :: 
the kids' zone at the community library :: the bakery :: the GreenFront :: 
antiquing :: Ruffner ceiling :: heading home

One of Julian's friends from undergrad invited him down to give a talk at Longwood University. Since it was on a Friday, we took the opportunity to make a long weekend of it and enjoy ourselves. We stayed at the Longwood B&B. Originally the Alumni House at Longwood, it is now operated as a B&B on the edge of campus to host visitors like ourselves. It was a delightful place and the inn director, Lorrie Watson, was wonderful. 

After our 5 1/2 hour trip, I was down for the count Friday night with a migraine. It was terrible timing, but I will admit that being at the B&B in my time of distress felt so very Jane-gone-to-Pemberly-in-the-rain , which I didn't mind one bit. While Julian gave his talk and enjoyed a bit of a reunion with his friend, I toured around Farmville and had a great time looking through books, sipping tea, and browsing antiques and furniture. What's not to love?
