Love is helping your beloved dig the family car out of a ditch in the dawn light and being able to laugh about it together.  That's love in Vermont. Happy Vday to you and yours. xxx

Marion's Belated Birthday

Our darling Marion turned 13 on January 27. Fabulous in every way, we are so happy to watch her get on her way - to where - who knows but life to Marion right now is rich and alive. We are constantly astounded by her, she brings so much joy to our family. 13 cheers for Marion!

If I was going to cheer out for another member of our family it would be this fella in the basement.

Yes, central wood heat is a thing of beauty. I never believed I would light so many fires in my lifetime, nor stack so much wood but when the house is cozy and the oil tank is full because we're not using oil, well, it  gives me a similar feeling to having a lower deductible health insurance. Lovely, peaceful, warm, good for everyone and not so darn expensive too.
