What do you do on a Snowy Sunday?

You admire the beauty of the morning, soft white branches against a bright sky. And you thank God you are inside, looking outside from the warmth of the kitchen.

You realize that newly fallen snow is magical.

You notice the neighbor's house and shrubbery looks like a scene from a Christmas card.

When you get tired of looking at all that can make goofy faces at the camera.

Or take some time to decorate the little feather tree you found at that great antique store in Melrose. Don't forget to throw in a little holiday music. Anything by Windham Hill will do.

And, there you have it, a perfect Snowy Sunday.


Hi Chatelaine...
Sweetie this scene outside your window is postcard magical. I so love the way the snow is so perfect, and untouched at this time. It is so white and bright, and against the blue sky it is serene. I so love it. I love the ice on the bushes. Winter has came and stold Fall in the night. The leaves are no more, and the snow scenes have arrived.

So beautiful. Thank you for sharing with me today.

Please stop by and say hi. I would so love to have the company.

Country hugs...Sherry
These are wonderful pictures. We are still waiting for the first snow of the season..

I was at my mum's house in Swampscott (near Marblehead) over the weekend and on that beautiful snowy Sunday morning I walked down to the beach and took pictures of the sunrise. I just love the first real snowfall. It is magical.
Chatelaine.....I love a freshly fallen is so serene and peaceful. Then the snow plows come and dump a bunch of dirty sand and ash. Too bad it's beauty has to be disturbed. Enjoy yours!~Patti

Appleton Farms- Farm to Table and more

Friday night I rushed home from work, fed the kitties, changed my clothes and picked up my sister at her house. I couldn't wait to head up to Ipswich, MA and Appleton Farms for their farm to table dinner.  As soon as we pulled into the entrance of the property, all the tensions of the day went away.

The weather was cool, a perfect temperature for outdoor dining, live music and lawn games. What a peaceful setting.

The sign said play & have fun. I did not know how much fun we really would have.

Here's a view from the field. The tables were ready outside and there were more inside the barn.

Fences and stone walls encircled the field and property. Hay bales were set up as seating for listening to the live entertainment for the evening.

The band was named The Austin Torpedoes. They were wonderful. We really enjoyed their performance.

Lemonade was available at a self serve station. You could buy beer or wine from the Ipswich Ale Brewery Truck. Yes, the spiggots were right on …

Embracing the season-my Autumn checklist

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I am speaking of my favorite season Fall. We are in the thick of it now and it is fabulous! It's not quite peak foliage but we are getting there.

Here are my reasons to embrace Fall.

1.  Outdoor dining- Those early Fall days are even better than in Summer. Cooler temps make it more comfortable sitting in the sun and the scene is more colorful. In late Fall, I switch to sitting by fireplaces whenever I can.

2. Old graveyards- I am strangely drawn to old graveyards in the Fall. Maybe it's because most graveyards have fantasticly colorful trees and I just notice them more in Fall. Or perhaps it's the Halloween connection.

We have some very old graveyards in New England and they are definitely worth a visit.
You could even take a historic graveyard or ghost tour. There is a graveyard tour in my hometown in two weeks.

3. An Autumn Walk- What's better than an Autumn walk around your neighborhood?

I love to pick up some colorful …
