Bright snow and fog

A morning of dense fog blurring the boundary between earth and sky. It’s been a relatively mild winter, but northerners know that “winter strengthens as days lengthen.” Late January and February frequently bring the coldest, snowiest days.

It’s the time of year for snowshoeing and long walks. We get the wood stove going in the shop to create a safe, socially-distant place to visit with one or two friends.

The pandemic has helped focus me on what matters in this life: friends, family, community, the natural world and love. Everything else is secondary. I am reminded daily that we must take care of each other and the earth we live on.

I’m always available to talk about a visit to the boardinghouse, 315-347-3456.

Yes, it’s really a new year

With the pandemic raging across our country and politics still dividing us, it may not feel like a new year but we have indeed put 2020 behind us.

Here at the boardinghouse, I’ve had friends and family visit–safely, of course–and I’m gearing up to welcome new people into my home–testing, vaccine and best practices around the house make this possible.

I’ve been walking our road every day–sometimes I run into a neighbor out and about. Mostly, it’s just me and the dogs. The north country landscape is broody and beautiful.

Glad to talk with you about a possible visit. Call anytime: 315-347-3456.

Happy New Year!
