Snowed In

Here in Connecticut we had an extraordinry snow storm .  I don't ever remember seeing this much snow fall at one time.  Everything looks beautiful.  Schools are closed for a second day...although the roads seemed fine by yesterday afternoon. It's a great day to be holed up with a warm fire, a cup of hot cocoa, and a good book. Alas, I'm off to work.  I hope anyone who is stuck at home is able to enjoy the peace and quiet a good snow brings.

I don't know who was enjoying the snow more, my son or our dog.

A Riot of Color

In these dark and cold days of January , I find myself yearning for a bit of color.  Veranda magazine often has beautiful floral arrangements in their magaizine.  It's great to see them, especially at this time of year when a riot of color is such a necessary diversion from the brown and white landscape outside my window.  Enjoy.
