A cat's life

It's been a tough week or so for the cats. Sheri has been sick for over a week, so the woodstove has been running 24 hours a day for all that time!

Today we were both at home because of the snowstorm so they have also had my lap to sit on. For the record we received about 20" of snow in the last 24 hours which may be a record for our place on Hangman Hill.

Annual Christmas Card Competition

We are pleased to announce the winners of the "best-dressed Christmas Card" contest for 2014.  As usual we had lots of very good entries and there was some formidable competition for the last four places.  Shown below are our favorite four cards for Christmas 2014.  They were simply selected because they made us smile.

Christmas Blog

We spent Christmas and New Year at our chalet in New Hampshire, and had a very relaxing stay.  The weather wasn't very cooperative, but we did manage to get in a few hikes (Middle Mountain, Town Hall Road) and two half-days on our cross-country skis (Eastern Pasture Loop at Jackson & Great Glen Trails).   We enjoyed ringing in the New year with Gene and Kathy Fiese and Kathy's sister (Kristen).  Of course we ate and drank too much and even installed a new dishwasher too.

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year!  May your 2015 be happy, healthy, spent with family and friends, and filled with sunshine and fresh snow - whatever your pleasure.  Thanks to Gene, Kathy and Kristin for making the last day of 2014 such a good one!
