On Sunday morning, we stepped outside to get a closer look at what Winter Storm Neptune brought us overnight. Another several inches of fresh white fluffy snow had coated the existing enormous snowbanks, and huge wind gusts were blowing the snow every which way. The snow banks are as tall as Brian now!
The house is just about ready for our first time hosting Christmas Eve dinner
Our cousin is moving away from Boston, and we hosted a little make-your-own-sundae party on Sunday. By the way, mugs are a great way to put dessert toppings on the table – just shake ’em out!
We’ll miss you, my dear
Another puzzle that looks lovely in the gorgeous light that pours through our front window every morning.
It’s snowing sideways and I have a lonely blank canvas in my studio. Remind me again why I’m leaving my apartment today?
On the day after our awesome new couch is delivered, the Blizzard of 2013 arrived and we’re ‘stuck’ at home for a three day weekend. No complaints here! We are perfectly happy to hang out at home. This is a photo of Brian on the new couch reading a book I recommended, and I’m making bagel pizzas.
My perfect little studio, with perfect late-afternoon fall light, and the perfect fall flowers B gave me the other night 🙂
Hurricane Irene turned out to be relatively unexciting for us, except for a big tree down behind the house. Our apt stands next to a big hill about the same height as our building, and a tree near the top of the hill was totally uprootd. The tree had the courtesy to fall neatly alongside the back of the house rather than directly on to the house – a difference of a few degrees.
This is the root of the tree that fell. This is near the top of the hill, so this is about the same height as our roof.
The view behind the house from the back patio – this is the top of the tree, right against the side of the house.
My kitchen window
My living room window – the root of the tree is out of the shot, further up on the right.
This is NOT near my house, and this is NOT our car. B took a walk to check out the neighborhood, and this is down the street from us.
