We pause for a moment...


...to bring you a few pictures of the last days of winter here in Maine. These are two of 5 ruffed grouse in my crabapple tree that is right outside my kitchen window. I love that tree. Last weekend we had a 'herd' of turkeys eating off of it...some in the tree and some standing on the ground jumping up to reach the fruit...pretty funny.
And this is daughter Sarah with her housemates, Maslow and Buca. Big dogs. We had a great day on the lake and the house didn't suffer too much from wet dog. I bought a new bathing suit today in preparation for a trip to Florida in a couple of weeks. And when we get home, it will be warmer here. Sap hasn't started running yet because the days are not that warm, ( warm days/cool nights) but March 25th is Maple Syrup Sunday around here so it will be SOON!

You live in a beautiful area. We have lots of snow too but I hear that it is supposed to get warm in a couple of days . It's beautiful but I won't be sorry to see it go.
