What a wonderful few days we have had....being all together, spending a day making our cut-out cookies, sharing family meals. Now all is quiet and my daughter and son-in-law will be leaving tomorrow and I won't see them again for a couple month... Read more

I've been up for a while. Have all the Christmas lights on. Sipping a cup of coffee and watching all the birds at the feeders. Even my kitties have gone back to bed. There are deer in the backyard. No sun today but we do have a white Christ... Read more

While packing my car to leave Maine, I pulled something in my back. Well, spending 13 and 1/2 hours in a car trying to get back to PA before the snow storm didn't help. I wasn't able to walk the short time I was there since it was way too col... Read more

I've been out working in the snow and needed a break. I took a few pictures since I think it is absolutely gorgeous out there. Have to admit, shoveling it isn't fun. My wonderful neighbor came with his snow blower and did my driveway. Just t... Read more

I decided to take a break this afternoon and attended a play and went out to dinner with friends. It was exactly what I needed. Preparing for the holidays is always hectic and usually we forget to take time for ourselves. I really needed to g... Read more
