The snow is blowing and swirling in gusts up against the house.  I am glad to be inside. 

It is warm and cozy, we have food and wood…and each other.  We will nest within and wait. 

The younger kids and I set out after a fresh snow and look for animal tracks.  We have found deer and moose , we follow their prints until we know with certainty it is time to turn back.  The walk home is always longer than the investigative walk.  But it is still fun.  It is a simple notion I set on this winter…to enjoy winter you must fill it with happy memories.  This is much easier than I realized! 

The goings on around here are both big and small.  My husband will retire this summer, we have had many adventures these last 23 years during his career.  Things are sure to be different, I say that with excitement as I am anxious to see this out-of-uniform person.  What will he be like!

Change is good, for the most part, right?  Yes! Of course it is!

We have been having work done on the house, this is definitely good.  This old 1820 house needed a few pick me ups.  What a relief to see proper fixtures, I get so tired of “making do”.  You have to finally make those decisions and what a nice treat it is when you see the results. I’ll share some pics soon, when the dust is settled and the paint is dry…

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Think of the future, and never forget the past. Let the door open and embrace it. (great photos with lots of warmth)
