  • Wintering…..ish

    The winter here has been, let’s say…underwhelming. Now. Perhaps this is a bit premature, but meh. One big snowstorm and lots of RAIN. Rain melts snow. Also makes mud. Really gross. And not winter weather, more spring like. Anyway, plenty of winter left, so we will see what the next couple of months bring. It […]

  • Nor’easter

    Currently we are in the end hours of our very first “Nor’easter”. Over the past 24 hours we received over a foot of snow, honestly prob closer to 2 feet (and it is predicted to continue to snow until this evening)— it’s been pretty wild. Kind of like living in a snow globe. Quite surreal! […]

It’s all good stuff tho. And in the morning, we get this beautiful view with coffee. How can one possibly complain […]

    Is through it. With our new house (new to us) we weighed the option of buying furniture and ALL. THE. STUFF. Or bringing up our own stuff from FL. Numbers were crunched and we opted to bring up our stuff—- Lord knows we have plenty of it—-and fill in the gaps later if needed. The […]

  • Thankful

    Thankful to have spent time with our family earlier this month in Thanksgiving. As we are so far from everyone right now, the time spent together is that much more precious.

  • Snow

    I have anticipated this moment from the second we knew we were heading to New Hampshire. SNOW! I purchased my big, long, warm Land’s End coat, snow shoes, variety of socks, leggings and so on. Well. This week, it finally happened and I am ready to report on my experience. The day before it snowed, […]

  • Things that go boom

    Bandit and I took a hike this week on part of the Sunapee Ragged Kearsarge Greenway. My knee was (thankfully) feeling better but I wanted to play it a little safer and explore some of the beautiful areas the Hubby has explored. It actually works out nicely, he hikes it when I am working and […]

  • Dark as night

    Are we ever going to do away with Daylight Savings time? Twice a year this nonsense……although this year in New England I am in serious shock——it gets dark up here at 4 freaking thirty!!!! And dark is DARK! I never fully appreciated the expression, “dark as night” until now. High beams in the car are […]
