People often ask "What do you do to keep from going crazy during the long, cold, dark days?"
First of all, the days are not long (in fact, they are quite short!) and they are not dark. Because we have snowcover from November through April (at least), any faint light that the sky emits reflects off the snow and makes for quite bright and cheery days. As far as the cold part ... that part IS true!
I thought I'd post a few pictures of some of our favorite moments from this winter. Notice that I'm speaking as if the winter is over. I'm hoping it will catch the hint!)
The Things We Do on the short, bright and cold days of winter...
Over eight hours later (spaced over 4 days), the finished product. Keene Valley has never seen such a thing!
What an exciting finish to a great game!
We snowshoe (those of us who have snow shoes!) and explore the beauty all around us. Wayne looks out from a vantage point on Snow Mountain - right behind our house.
(Isn't there just something so perfect about a dog laying beside a fire?)
(Wait a minute - maybe he IS old ... 92?!)
I had no idea that a cabinet for laundry soap would bring me such joy ... but it does!
As winter draws to a close and the next season sets in (No - not spring! MUD season!), we enter our slowest time of the year guest-wise. Now we can tackle BIG projects! Just a few days ago, Wayne tore off the first sheet of wainscoting as our Passages room begins its long-awaited journey to transformation. Don't worry - I'll post pictures all along the way!
