For a few precious minutes every day, only on sunny days, the sun is parallel with our front window and our tree, and we get the most incredible light directly on our tree and our ornaments! Merry Christmas!

Winter Storm Neptune

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

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!

DSC09942For a few minutes, the sun is at just the right angle that it comes in through the front window and straight down the hall. A wonderful sight to wake up to on my second day of vacation

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

Snowed In

Friday, February 8th, 2013


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.
