Winter Field

Hay bales in the snow

Our power went out again today, so we went for a long ride up north to explore. It was a very dramatic sky and I'm happy to report that our power was back on when we got home.

Snow at Night

No Power Today

This is how Fiesta spent her day

This is how Camy spent her day

Here's how Peter and I spent our day -- the power went out at 6:30 this morning. Peter trudged through the snow to light the kerosene heater in the studio and I loaded up the wood stove. We were told that we would be without power through Sunday night so after we dug ourselves out we went out and bought some more basics. I spent the afternoon melting snow on the top of the wood stove, it was surprisingly satisfying, and Peter scanned his crank radio for any news. After the sun went down we lit some candles and settled in to play some cards when all of a sudden the power came back on. What a relief and a surprise! It was a winter miracle. I was starting to feel very 19th century. We were only without power for 12 hours, but it was enough to make us stop and appreciate the magic of the wires.

Goodbye Winter

I baked them, but I didn't have to make them!

There's a great Italian deli in Milford, PA called Fretta's Italian Food Specialties. We're so glad the Fretta family relocated from Brooklyn to here.

Trip to Newburyport

We had one evening to explore before the snow started falling and it was time to go

Sunset over Newburyport, MA

Peter is now represented by The Churchill Gallery in Newburyport, MA. We took a quick trip up there yesterday to deliver the first group of paintings and left early this morning to get home before the forecasted snow started to fall. We're both looking forward to spending more time in this part of the world.

Sunrise Trip, Warwick NY

It was a spectacular sunrise this morning

Our destination

A chance meeting with landscape photographer Nick Zungoli

It was almost a year ago I started this blog with "Sunrise Picture Hunt" at this very spot.

Tree Trunks I Know

I'm always drawn to the space between these trees

When you walk the same woods every day you get to know the trees, plants and rocks intimately. They take on personalities of their own and reveal themselves in different ways depending on the time of day, weather and season. They become friends.

Winter Acorns

Nature bits highlighted by last night's snow

We had less than an inch of snow last night. It was exciting to see white on the ground again and we are looking forward to more soon. Peter is feeling cheated out of his winter!

Is this a Miracle?
