It’s All New

Good morning everyone. We wish you a Happy New Year and hope you enjoyed your holiday season in whatever form or fashion you celebrate life and family and friends. With the passing of the winter solstice and the piles and piles of new snow we just received I feel a little more buoyant each day. The new snow makes the whole world brighter. I get aboard the schooner every couple of days and find myself dreaming about projects and the coming sailing season. We have a ton of work to do between now and then. I was down to the boat on Friday and the tides were so high that I launched the skiff from up on the lawn, a good foot above the top of the wall.
Katie arrived back last night and we will start tackling barn projects today. Rob called to let us know that he will be back next summer after a little R&R; in Belize! OK, so I am just a little jealous. Bruce will be out today to help put the finishing touches on the all new chicken coop. I have a pile of logs waiting at the sawmill and I really look forward to getting that back up and running. The next few months are going to be a wonderfully busy time.

Have a great day. Be well, Do good.


  1. Yesterday morning the weather report stated it was 32 degrees in Bangor. At my house in Alabama it was 15 degrees. Snow is predicted for tomorrow. Instead of Global warming I think we are getting a polar shift. You should bring the Mary Day down to the Gulf before it freezes over.

  2. The temperature here in Alabama moderated a bit this morning to 30 but is expected to drop dramatically as the rain/sleet/snow moves in during the day. Stay tuned to this station for links to pictures. That's assuming enough snow arrives to warrant a picture. Somehow I don't think the predicted 1" – 2" will provide the sort of scene seen in the photos from Global Headquarters.

  3. The forecasters erred and the snow never arrived in central Alabama. However, the University of Alabama won the football national championship tonight. ROLL TIDE
