Happy New Year

The Christmas and New Year Holidays have been terrific, albeit, too short. We have enjoyed time together, sharing meals with dear friends, and catching up with our families by phone. A trip to Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence with Joann and Eric to see the Chihuly exhibit gave a chance to explore a new area. It was great to see the work of Dale Chihuly and the students that were so inspired by him. We will need to return to that area of Providence for further exploration, on a day that is not so bracing. Also, it has been great to see some progress at Spruce Street, so look for some photo updates soon. The pets have enjoyed our company, and we look forward to another day at home to break down the Christmas tree search for our work bags and badges. We are off to enjoy drinks and dinner at the Olympia Tea Room in Watch Hill, an old favorite even in early January

The good news is that the days are noticeably longer (if not warmer!), seed catalogs with colored tabs protruding from their pages are resting on the coffee table, and at trip to Vermont is scheduled for next weekend. Happy New Year! Oh, and think snow!
