First snow this year of any size was on the ground this morning when Molly and I got up. Bill was in Boston--clever fellow. The plow that goes on the front of the riding mower was all ready in the garage and after four short hours, the yard was cleared. The Lincoln Town Car, just up from Florida, was in shock!

Pauline and Chris are off to Italy. We will visit with Hanni Cvak for her birthday in Venice. Then on to Florence, Pompeii, Rome, Ravenna and back to Venice to catch our plane home. No computers with us. But, three digital cameras! So pictures when we get back March 10.

December was a busy month, so we are just getting to the holiday cards now. Bill's Mom, Gladys, now 84, braved repeated TSA wandings (her three replacement joints set off all the alarms) to visit from Florida for a ten days. Rachel and her friend Jay arrived only 24 hours late after Chris and then Bill did "pick up at Boston Logan" duty. They all got out reasonably efficiently after Chris did a snowstorm shuttle of Rachel and Jay back to Portland and the bus to Logan. There Rachel and Jay had a quick reunion with Nicol who is in Boston for 8.5 days substitute-Managing a store for The Territory Ahead before she returns home to the Detroit area The Territory Ahead store of her own. Seemed strange that she was not here with us for Christmas. First time in a long time.
We are all well. We just seem to keep very busy. Bill is still Director of Program Development at Acadia Partners. They are growing by leaps and bounds but there is still a lot of planning to do and that keeps Bill very busy. He's developed an interest in turning--as in with a lathe--and has been able to spend some non-work hours
I keep busy as volunteer Director at the local Public Library (Dorcas Library) and the connections with the Maine State Library that are included in that. Kind of fun to be back in the library business again. And, I am enjoying the theater group.
Molly is already 4 years old! She is smart, and funny. Her toe nail thing--she lost all of her toe nails from an auto-immune disease this Summer-has simmered down now that the toenails are gone, and she is her silly self again.
It has been a quite year what with Bill's work and my having ripped the house up to paint and patch.
We did get a bit of traveling in, though. Went to North Carolina for Kathleen (niece) wedding this May and went right back the next week--Bill had a Grant Deadline in between--for a ride through Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Chris and I are planning a two week trip to Venice and environs in February. One of our high school exchange students, Hanni, if having her 60th birthday party in Venice to we are combining that with a little tour of Italy.
We put the house back together for our Christmas visitors and it is quite nice to have it in one piece again. The painting, patching and windows combined with a little contracted out floor sanding have all served to perk the house up and made it look even more elegant. I have one room and one killer hall to do yet, and Bill's office, and will post more pictures when I get it done.
But the best way to see it is to come see for yourself. We have twin, double, and, on request, king sized accommodations, we are non-smoking and pet friendly. So, come along. We would love to see you. The Downeast provides fine scenery and lots to do year round.
Yes, the pictures were taken in our front yard after the first snowfall in early December. The tripod and the self timer worked fine. That is what Molly is being so alert about--the timer on the camera is beeping!

Hmm, guess it has been a while since I updated this. Stay tuned for new pictures of the house without the old, dirty wallpaper and the scratched floors. We have been busy this year! Yes, the house has been torn up for a year! New windows started it all, but they have been worth it. Then I got started on a "it is just a little wallpaper off and paint on.." but there are sooooo many rooms!
