Snow Fatigue

You can’t get too much winter in the winter.
- Robert Frost

I love the poetry of Robert Frost but he's wrong. We have already had too much Winter in this Winter. We are getting more snow overnight tonight, could be another 10 inches. I think we are all suffering from snow fatigue.

Thinking warm thoughts of past Summers, dining on seafood by the ocean in Maine, watching the sunset in Rockport, shopping on the Vineyard last August.

Seems like Summer is just a distant memory.


I love that sign! Only in New England! :)

We are getting lots of snow right now...after 3 inches earlier in the day. It is really getting to be enough, already!
Snow fatigue is right! My favorite day of winter is the last one . . . which is March 19th! The thought of moving more snow is daunting! Keep warm and stay safe!

Another whopper of a storm. School is closed so no work for me. At this rate we will be making up our missed days in July. YIKES!!
Oh, that sign is funny. Someone has managed to have a sense of humor. We are to get snow today, too, but our winter has been nothing like yours.

Your memories sound lovely, I need to conjure up a few, too. Hang in there!

15" here in Plainville/Foxboro. Isn't it amazing how stormy and dismal it can be and then just a few hours later the sun is out and the sky is a breathtaking blue? Small comfort for all the hassle!

It sounds like you live in such a beautiful place. I have always wanted to visit...but now that I moved from eastern Canada to the West Coast it probably won't be happening. I will just enjoy your area through your blog!

Oh I am so agreeing with you. So very tired of it all!
The sign made me smile though:))

That sign is one for the memory book. You have really been hammered this winter. I'm new to your blog and have been browsing through your earlier entries. You have made your blog a lovely place to visit. I'll be back as often as I can. Stay safe, warm and dry. Blessings...Mary
All our snow has gone now but this was the first year that I could understand people getting tired of snow. In December we had snow for nearly the whole month and, although it was great fun to start with, it got annoying!

Not long to wait for Spring!

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 …
