Wandering

I can’t wait for Spring. But alas that won’t be happening for awhile. So to pass time while I wait, I will continue wandering trying new things.

Today I went to Omi’s coffee shop that moved to South Portland. They have yummy homemade poptarts! I wish I had ventured upstairs to check out the seating upstairs.

I went back to Portland and checked out Flea for All on Congress Street that sells antiques and unique finds. I feel like most of the places I’ve been going to have all moved location and I’m checking out the place again like it’s new to me. I liked looking at all the cool things.

The highlight of my day was visiting the Portland Museum of Art. They had an art in bloom series where local florist did arrangements based on artwork. I thought it was cool to see and something free to do on a Friday. I realized I hadn’t been in awhile and was fun to check out all four floors. On the fourth floor there were wood carvings done by Bernard Langlais, an artist from Maine. I’ve always admired his work so that was a treat to see.

Snowshoeing

I finally got try snowshoeing! I broke my left foot and it’s finally healed so I got to try out my new snowshoes. I probably looked fun walking around my yard but I didn’t care. I was following the deer tracks on my property.

Today

Today I went to Portland to get my hair cut and at 1pm was clueless where to go. I tend to be indecisive and probably need one of those spinner things or roll a dice to help me decide from my list of places to check out. Today I decided on OhNo Cafe and got myself a grilled shrimp BLT and pasta salad. I wasn’t disappointed on serving size or taste. It was delicious and I’d probably go again to try one of their breakfast sandwiches. I worked off my lunch with a walk around Mackworth Island which was quite a workout with the snow covered trails.

Wandering in Portland

Despite the cold I went to Portland today to check out places I’ve never been. I like to explore and try new places. Maybe it will become a favorite.

My first stop was at Little Woodfords on Forest Avenue. The avocado toast was delicious.

Belleville on North Street offers pizza and croissants. I tried the spinach and artichoke. I will have to go back to try one of their croissants.

After some walking around I went to the Portland Public Market to get a chicken arepa that I enjoyed at home from Maiz.

Before I drove home I made a quick stop at Two Fat Cats Bakery and grabbed myself a treat. I was happy I got to cross off a few places off my list of places to check out.

Walk

Today I ventured outside for a walk at Mackworth Island. Thankfully I wore stabilizers on my shoes because majority of the trail along the shoreline was still iced over. The last thing I need is breaking my foot again. It was nice to be outside despite the cold. I listened to the Ologies podcast which was entertaining.
