It made me happy that the house I purchased included a lilac bush. Its one of my most favorite smells.

I think one of my favorite bagel places near me is Maples. They recently decided to switch from gelato and focus on bagel making since they are so good at it. There is always a line out the door on the weekends there. I do love the jalapeño cheddar cream cheese they have.

I had some free time before an oil change so I ventured to South Portland to try 158 Pickett Street Cafe. I wasn't disappointed. They had plenty of bagels to choose from and I decided to change things up and got the Canuck sandwich with cheese, egg and Canadian bacon on an asiago bagel. It was delicious and I do want to go back again and try some of their cream cheese flavors.

Lately I have been really wanting a good bagel. Living in Maine that may limit the options unlike places like New York, but there are few bakeries in the area that do make a good bagel. I had a lead on a good bagel to try and ventured up to Lewiston to try Forage Market. I was not disappointed. I got a latte and though they were out of the olive cream cheese, the jalapeño cream cheese was a good second choice with my plain bagel. The bagel had a nice taste to it where it wasn't too chewy or crispy when toasted. The cafe had a relaxed atmosphere and I liked their use of pyrex. I would travel again to Lewiston to go there again for another bagel.

Today I got to complete a goal off my life list though in a slightly different way. I took the Mount Washington Cog Railway up to the summit. It was amazing the difference in weather up there where it felt like you were in the clouds and crazy wind. I almost fell over from the wind up there. It was fun though and was nice going up there with family. Driving up there looked a little scary based on how foggy it was at the top.
