There are signs of spring at the cottage, but they are going to be short lived. While the Jasmine and the Rosemary are blooming, winter is closing in. It will be 25 degrees colder this coming weekend and sweater weather, at last! We'll battle through the cold for a couple of months and then by [...]
Merry Christmas with a really sweet view and with sweet people. Grateful for warm moments with friends and family.

It has become a tradition: picking out Christmas trees the day after Thanksgiving. Anne found a perfect tree and I usually do, too, but this year I decide to get a different type of tree for Marietta. So Anne's tree was wrapped and load. It was 28 days until Christmas. Today, it is only 27 [...]
