We didn't get the feet of snow that others got. Though it snowed all day it was only several inches to clean up the snow we had already.
Had to travel an hour south to Keene, NH for a preop appointment for cataract surgery. Returning I snapped this photo of the frozen Connecticut River as we crossed from VT to NH.
New granddaughter coming soon.
I crocheted this blanket for her. The yarn was a mix of white, yellow, aqua and gray and to enlarge it after that yarn ran out I added the border of aqua. When I showed the colors to my daughter she realized that she had a rug in those colors that she could move to the baby room and the color scheme worked for her.
On January 12th I posted here about a new distraction - a puzzle.
Monday of this week, two weeks later, I finished it.
Here's how it looked Monday morning.
Monday, Dan called me before breakfast to come look at the woodpecker he'd spotted on a tree bordering our driveway. It was a pileated woodpecker hard at work drilling holes to feed on insects.
I knew I couldn't open the door to take a photo and had to try through the window - not very successfully. I tried two different cameras in fact. The first didn't get the colors right or focus and the second couldn't focus on the moving bird. Later I went out to take the photos of the tree.
Any suggestions on how I could have had a better photographic capture?

My oldest brother introduced it to us, his siblings and now 5 of the 6 of us play every morning and share our scores.

Early this morning the view from the kitchen window.
Bitter cold weather and then a snow storm is coming our way this weekend. That means staying inside out of the cold. Knowing that I put on my snow shoes Friday morning and headed out for a walk in the field to the woods beyond. I wasn't the only creature walking in this expanse in the last few days. There were animal tracks all over the place but with the lighting I couldn't manage a photo of them. Here is what I did capture.
The bridge goes over this small stream which surprisingly wasn't frozen solid.
The bridge connects this forest blueberry patch to the field. These are old, old blueberry bushes.
